Ghostly essence detail.png

Ghostly essence is a rare item dropped by various ghosts and from Motherlode Maw. Ghostly essence is used to create and recharge the attuned ectoplasmator: 100 essence used on an ectoplasmator to upgrade it (giving 1000 charges), and each essence restores 10 charges to the attuned ectoplasmator (to a maximum of 5000 charges).

It could also very rarely be found in chests in the 2014 Hallowe'en event.

The "As The Rooster Crows" perk, accessible through the player-owned farm, grants a 7% increase in drop rate at Tier 1, and a 10% increase at Tier 2.

  • patch 26 November 2018 (Update):
    • Removed a guaranteed drop of ghostly essence when the "As the Rooster Crows" Player-owned-Farm animal perk is active; it now only increases drop chances for a number of kills after you hear the rooster's crow, as described.
