Material cache (quintessence) is an Archaeology material cache that can be found in the Stormguard Citadel Dig Site at either the Stormguard Citadel - Research & Development north-east excavation site (requires Wingsuit to access) or at the Stormguard Citadel - Howl's workshop excavation site (requires 95 Archaeology and partial completion of Howl's Floating Workshop to access). It can also be found at the Empyrean Citadel excavation site with the use of the invitation box.

Once the cache is depleted, it takes 150 seconds for it to respawn.
