Acquiring Essence From Chests Before And After 2.12


#1

Before 2.12, getting essence from free chests and quest chests used to be somewhat common, at least from what I’ve seen. After 2.12, however, I noticed that essence drops from chests has been basically nonexistent. Why is this happening?


#2

They said that they wanted essence to drop in larger amounts (and thus less frequently).
The real reason,however, is to make skin grind harder by limiting essence to sunlight levels/rare drops.


#3

I got essence from a brown daily chest yesterday. I was so quick to tap I didn’t see the amount. This was my first essence drop since the change.


#4

I got Epic Rona BP 3 days ago and 300+400 essence yesterday(from a silver and golden chest iirc)


#5

Got 300 essence (along with glory/ r talent, l talent and 12 ice) from completing the ‘destroy 100 turrets’ quest (purple chest).


#6

Here’s my reward from the 100 turret community chest today.


#7

I got well over 1500+ essence since patch. All in chunks of a few hundreds. Mostly from sunlight lvl chests.


#8

the high level sunlight rewards seem to be the main source of reliable essence.
but i also got 1k essennce from the chests (two times 300 essence+epic bp)

all that i want is a direct glory price for a bp. let it be really high and expensive, i dont care. i and most long term players wont put money into this game anymore, so they wont lose anything from it.


#9

I just got 400 essence out of a brown chest. It looks like BPs and essence are pretty limited. I’m completely ok with the new system if it will improve revenue for SEMC and grow/sustain the game long term.


#10

Same for me, just got 400 essence. This is the 3rd time I receive essence from chest in new patch
