either you can get them from Elementals or you can make them from those Items using the Alchemy Bench....


Any Essence can be downgraded to an Essence of lesser power by using
the mortar & pestle on it. Radiant > Glowing > Weak > Faint. Likewise, putting
two identical Essences in an Alchemy Bench and then using the Mortar & Pestle
on the bench will upgrade it to the next power level.
2 Faint = 1 Weak
2 Weak = 1 Glowing
2 Glowing = 1 Radiant"

you can also make Essence from certain Items

Oh yea!!!

If you use the Mortar/Pestle on the Fairy Dust item, you will receive an
essence completely at random (i Think...)

That means Any Level And any kind!

There are component vendors in the city - more of them. stuff like frost giant head and you know that sounds like a component can be refined into some kind of essence. read it's description to make sure.

I really doubt for the reasons beneath:

1) You can't acquire them witout cheating.

2) You would need an enchanter's satchel that is not acquireable in the OC.

3) Even if you cheat these stuff in, You need the Spirit eater skills as well as many recepies use the mould spirit and it's advanced form for crafting.


BUT you may be better off without them since the level cap in the OC is 20 at which point you can create better weapons with the original crafting system.
For example: a +5 weapon in the OC is craftable at 15th level while in MotB it is craftable on 21st level. So... I highly advise you to use what is given :)

Just above this boad there is a FAQs title. there you can find an item list I guess in the MotB forum you can find the rest. Or you can try at gamebanshee.com. they usually compile lots of lists and stuffs about games...

Conversion of Fairy Dust is random as has been explained. I do not know whether this would be regarded as "cheating" and if so my apologies but I always save before "converting" and then see what I get! (and then try again!!!)
