Essence is identified as a glowing, yellow spherical ball of energy that can be harvested, rewarding the harvester experience points (abbreviated as EXP). Each essence gives 10 Experience Points.
The essence orbs themselves have no friction and seem to roll around quite freely, similar to the Spirit Key. They share the properties with items such as tools or mob drops, and can in fact be placed in chests.
The only way to obtain essences is by destroying or killing the following forms of life, objects, or entities:
- Ancient Tree
- Essence Chest (removed)
- Feather Bush
- Wealthy God
- Miserable God
- Hateful God
- Lonely God
- Old God
- Sun Tree
- Queen Ant (currently non-existent)
- Magnetite & Emerald Chest
When it is picked up by the players, it will not take up any inventory spaces and cannot be carried as an item; however, if the bag is deemed as 'full', the Essence cannot be picked up, being isolated on the ground until the players find a way to reduce the number of items in their inventories or another player comes by to snatch it.
Essence Chest (Removed)
Before the Mojo Update, it was possible get Essence (EXP) In Essence chests. You could get essence chests in the hats menu and go to the second tab, then scroll down to the chest menu. Now it is obtained through Emerald & Magnetite Chests.

- Before the Void Update, Essence only gave you 5 EXP, but was changed after Soybeen read a comment begging to buff the Ancient Tree.
- It is impossible to put this in a chest
- Essence was common in the Emerald Tools Update, due to hackers (or simply players with a lot of robux) spamming and dropping Emerald, Magnetite, and Essence Chests. This has stopped ow due to all coins being wiped in the recent Mojo Update.
- Magnetite and Emerald chests also drop a small amount of essence.
- Essence highly resembles the Spirit Key in shape and texture.
- The Ancient Tree give a lot of essence, but it may not be worth your time to cut it down if your tool of choice will take a long time to chop it, and below level 90, it used to only give 4 levels. Now it the Ancient Tree will give you about 6-20 levels if you are below 90.
