    It's pretty difficult to obtain sufficient amounts of troll essence compared to other races to make totems. Given their size comparable to kobolds, elves and liches then I think trolls should drop more essence per kill. It's both logical and would help to address that there is a lack of trolls in game when compared to other races.

    Let's see, in the last 30 days, players have gathered over 9,000 Troll Essence. I don't know if that qualifies as "difficult to obtain sufficient amounts".

    In the last 30 days, players have collected over 6,000 Elf Essence for comparison.

    higher-tier trolls CAN drop more than one per kill, just like higher-tier liches, elves, and kobolds

    The statistics may be a reflection of the market trend. Many players are paying more for troll essence than other essences. That's why more people farm troll essence.

    I remember high tier troll boss drops two essences at most but I haven't seen other essence drop more than one.

    Lich essence drop is the highest as it can be farmed in scene such as UT and the fall which respawn Lich endlessly.

    Goruk the mansmasher in Ruined Keep drops level 1 troll totem frenquently, 1 totem = 100 essences, so its not that hard if you know where farm.

    it also needs to be pointed out the troll boss in RK and the T6 troll boss both drop totems that = a 100 essence drop.
