North Mirkwood - T10 Essences

The best essences in the game right now are tier 10. You can tell an essence is tier 10 because it has a small number ten in the upper left-hand corner. The numbers in the bottom right-hand corner are NOT the tier -- they show how many of that essence you have in that stack.

There are 4 types of tier 10 essences (ranked here lowest stats to highest):
A) Purple Empowered Shadow Essences
B) Teal Abyssal Essences
C) Teal Empowered Abyssal Essences
D) Gold Northern Stronghold Essences

All 4 are available at the Rare Oddities ash vendor in Udun Foothold, Magh Ashtu, Ruins of Dingarth, and all Allegiance Halls. Occasionally essences drop from Gorgoroth lootboxes -- I have seen Teal Empowered Abyssal Essences drop and assume some or all of the others can drop as well, with varying degrees of frequency.

All 4 can also be crafted.


A: Purple Empowered Shadow Essences
  • Recipe is NOT one-time use, it is reusable
  • Recipe is acquired at the Gorgoroth Crafting Vendor in Udun Foothold, Magh Ashtu, or Ruins of Dingarth
  • Ingredients are 1 Universal Solvent, 5 regular ingredients (vary by crafting profession) and 1 special ingredient (such as refined adamant or Quality Ingot)


B: Teal Abyssal Essence
  • Recipe is NOT one-time use, it is reusable
  • Recipe is acquired at the Gorgoroth Crafting Vendor in Udun Foothold, Magh Ashtu, or Ruins of Dingarth
  • Ingredients are 1 Universal Solvent, 5 regular ingredients (vary by crafting profession) and 1 special ingredient (such as refined adamant or Quality Ingot), and 1 malleable essence


C: Teal Empowered Abyssal Essence
  • Recipe IS one-time use -- you have to buy one for each essence you craft
  • Recipe is acquired at the Gorgoroth Crafting Vendor in Udun Foothold, Magh Ashtu, or Ruins of Dingarth
  • Ingredients are 1 Universal Solvent, 5 regular ingredients (vary by crafting profession) and 1 special ingredient (such as refined adamant or Quality Ingot), and 2 malleable essences.


D: Gold Northern Stronghold Essence
  • Recipe is NOT one-time use, it is reusable
  • Recipe is acquired at any of the Northern Mirkwood reputation factions after reaching kindred with them
  • Ingredients are 1 Universal Solvent, 5 regular ingredients (vary by crafting profession) and 1 special ingredient (such as refined adamant or Quality Ingot), 3 malleable essences and 1 Lasgalen Token of Purification


Where to acquire ingredients:
  • Regular crafted ingredients are made by foresters, prospectors, and jewellers
  • Special ingredients are made by the same professions but have an 18-hour cooldown
  • Universal Solvents are rare drops, purchased in the LOTRO store or traded/bought from other players
  • Malleable essences you barter at the N. Mirkwood rep crafting vendors, OR at Gorgoroth Crafting vendors in Mordor. The more valuable essences barter for more malleable essences.
  • Lasgalen Tokens of Purification are available for barter at the N. Mirk. rep crafting vendors
