Ive been camping the room just to the East of where you port in (with 4 mobs and a Fake wall painting) for about 14 hours total now, and not one Essence. Also for some reason I keep getting about 7 adds (not all at once, but during the cycle of me killing the 4 room pops) that are not a part of that room. I don't know where they come from but they still do no matter where I stand in the room. Any Suggestions on the adds or getting the Essence to drop?
Also from a Helot Spirit

Have hunted this for many toons and for friends, it does drop in south wing but ultra rare and only off the 52+ mobs it seems, so deeper in south by Spiritualist room and way to east, its rare drop in East wing since all these mobs are higher level.. it drops from golems and all types of skels/ghosts.

Also note: they did remove light source from many if not all the quest droppers last patch, but this still gives light source on the mobs holding the essence.

Spent 6 hours in the South Wing of the zone killing Hexbone Skeletons and whatever else my group could find. The mobs are simple, dark blue to 65 but the group consisted of a Rogue, Shaman, Wizard and we did just fine. However we only got one Essence in 6 hours worth of clearing so I'd say its quite rare of an item.

We personnaly went with a small group (2clr - shm - mage - ench, all 65) in the east wing and AE'd the whole place. Note : the golems arent stunnable, be careful. Very fun, and good xp !

In 4 respawns IIRC, we got 4 Essences. We killed a lot of mobs for sure, so that makes the item uncommon, but not *that* rare ... we'll need more info :)

I don't recall off which mobs did all of them drop, but I'm quite sure it was hexbone skeletons indeed as stated on this page

*EDIT* : I came back to HS lately, and Essence of Howling Stones also drops from mortiferous golems, that means the ones in East wing.

Can drop off pretty much from any mob in the East wing of Charasis.
We had it dropping from elementalbone skeletons, golems etc. And not minis, just plain trash mobs.
Drops very randomly.
There can be hours of none dropping and then suddenly several in a row or even from the same pull (provided you pull by 6 to 10 mobs).

Lots of items drop off minis etc. that are ok for tribute. Lots of 50ties spells for all classes. And you can get your yearly supply of bone chips from there. ;) Main problem is soon no one has room for loot any more. As for xp, at lvl 65 it gives 1% of AA per kill. So not exactly fire or earth or KT level xp, but nevertheless you get something...
So your time is not totally wasted.

You can levi to East wing door (the stairs are fake) from the fire pot on South. But if your computer lags, you most probably fall into basement, have to run to teleport in the centre and try again. Can be frustrating.
So you can just go to the East wing via South (fake walls and secret passages; watch out for traps). South door can be picked open by a rogue with high lockpick skill or you have to have someone with
Hand of Glory with you.
Btw, would be helpful if Hand of Glory was listed on Charasis quest list. ;)

Good luck with getting the essence.
