This strange tangle of glowing blue thread pulses with the pure energies of Fate itself. As such, it can grant incredible power when used as a reagent in potion-making.
Consuming an Essence of Fate by itself provides the following effects:
- +20 to Fate Meter
Methods of obtainingEdit
The most common way of acquiring Essence of Fate is by chance through defeating opponents in Reckoning mode, each kill having a small chance of providing 1-4 Essences of Fate. It can also be acquired in some chests or by harvesting it from the plant of the same name (Usually hidden somehow, whether behind a hidden door or in an area not visible on the minimap).
Particularly difficult monsters also have a chance of possessing lootable Essence of Fate.

- It is possible to farm Essence of Fate by resting for 4 24-hour periods in a bed, and then visiting all of its locations to collect it.
