(OOC: This was buried in the death topic. Moved it out here for organization. Also, updated!)


Previous eras used essence in a variety of ways. In DoN, essence is currently used to limit how much a character can use their gathering skills to collect the raw materials used to craft and enchant new items. Gathering, be it mining, foraging, or arcane vitrifying, is taxing whether physically or mentally. As your essence score approaches zero, your character will become fatigued, accruing some minor penalties.

Essence recharges over time automatically. It recharges more quickly while a character is logged in, but does increase slowly while a character is logged off as well.

Respawning decreases your current essence by a large amount.
