U18: 105 Essence Guide

It appears that my earlier speculation was correct, 105 essences will be crafted.  Recipes can be found at the Quartermasters in Minas Tirith (near the entrance gate) and via the Featured Instance Amethyst Box of Spoils.  The essences (purple versions) also drop via the new instances and can be bartered for via a Quartermaster in Taur Druadan (see below).

Quartermasters

Pelennor Battle Rewards Vendor

Greater Essence Recipes (105) = 2 Morgul Crests
Supreme Essence Recipes (105) = 6 Morgul Crests

Morgul Crests can be acquired via T2 / T2C Osgiliath instances and T2 / T2C The battle of the Pelennor Fields instances.

Greater Essence Recipe (105) = 5 Long-lost Coins
Supreme Essence Recipe (105) = 15 Long-lost Coins

Long-lostCoin

These coins are found as rewards for completing the Featured Instance.  You get 5 coins per completion.  While the coins are bound to character, the recipes that you trade coins for, are not.

FEATURED INSTANCE

This is a new reward system designed to get people playing the older content (scaled).  You can read more about it here.  Essentially you can run the featured instance once per day per character.  Each week the feature instance changes to a different one.

One of the rewards for doing the Featured Instance is an Amethyst Box of Spoils.  These can contain essence recipes.

Once you have obtained your recipe you are ready to craft them.

    Thanks for the article. I’m starting to love this site as much as I used to riftgrate 🙂

    However, it occurred to me a questions:

    What will be the starting gear for featured instances? The lvl100 essence armor + lvl100 essences? Or maybe lvl101-105 quest items? If the former, then remain valuable the old gear for a while. Perhaps there will be some start-up equipment daily quests?

    The Featured Instances are supposed to drop level appropriate gear. I have not seen 105 gear drop in sub 105 instances.
