Getting a lot of these in Vex Thal
- Exceptional Shade Essence
- Robust Shadow Essence

Too many shades, letting EQ Item Collector sort it out.

Ive been farming these and the robust ones in UP for awhile now and I can say they only drop off the Dark Assassins never the Masters at all

Drop Rate and Location
# Mar 07 2006 at 10:31 AM Rating: Decent
These drop aroung the gate area in GE, from a shadowy figure, a belligerant guardsman, and a darkened occultist. My rule of thumb is that if the mob has beady red eyes, chance for drop on Exceptional, no eyes, means Robust chance. My rate of drop on these is about 1 every half hour. Maybe SOE can do something about the rate, or number of potions each combine will make, farming NBL in Old Seb, or Deepwater Inks in SG, can get a stack of 20 in that time, which will make around 100 potions (shrug, wishful thinking, but a Shaman can hope). All in all I like the path of the new alchemy for logically making the new items, just feel that the results are not inline with what is spent time wise to create them.

p.s. Think the rarity should be changed to uncommon
