5 December 2018Nimue Patch #2
  • Mob Faction Crests can now be salvaged as intended
  • 27 September 2017Joseph Update
    • Essence drop rates (from essence mobs) adjusted to be balanced against craft/upgrade requirements of enchantable potions: T4 up, T5 about the same, T6 down, T7 up, T8 up
    • Existing essences have been renamed to "[tier] Faded Essence"; these can only be used to transmute into new essences at fairly low rates. This has been done because the old essence drop rates were not balanced against the new potion balancing, and given that they dropped from chests but had no use, there were substantial quantities stockpiled, and we need to reduce these stockpiles so they don't totally overwhelm the new balance.
