    I assume all essence drops suck. It is hard as hell to get essence to the point that to make an actually interesting adventure dungeon maybe five people could actually have a good adventure dungeon in the game. There isn't enough essence in the game to support more.

    It was horrific already back in November 2020 and now you CUT THAT IN HALF.

    You guys have no idea how hard it is to get these items and it will take you 25,600 to make a top tier room.

    For reference here are the other essence drops: Elf, Lich, Kobold

    The Twin Troll encounter was a fun and easy way to get them

    Quick killing with guaranteed drop rate plus the chance for BMC rings and other loot

    Less monotony than grinding 1 static area for hours



    Can't do it anymore since you have to wait for zone respawn


    They should revert it back to -> zoning out resets the trolls

    I tried to make a top tier of each kind of room but the troll one is extremely hard. Lich and elf one drop quite often but the troll one is quite hard even if you farm ruined keep everyday. I tried to buy from player but the price goes up crazily to a level that I could not afford.

    I stopped farming troll essences since the price goes up from 150 to 800 each and the troll boss would not guarantee a totem drop per day.

    I feel a bit depressed and stopped playing when I like playing sun and life mage but sun can't kill most things and life mage get fixed. I dropped sun and changed to fire but it's still not fun to farm troll everyday. Just log on everyday to mainly water my plants and walking around these days.

    I'm not seeing any drastic change in the troll essence drop? Or seeing it drop in half?

    on 9/28 103 dropped and on 12/25 102 dropped. The same amount a day still seems to be the same.

    It's using the sum of the quantity fields, grouped (basically another sum) by day. The max/total on the right are based on the overall data in graph.
