Description

Profit shown per 56 maps - it took me anywhere between 2min and 3min to complete 1 map. YMMV.

No altars, no other content, no deli mirror - just straight essences.

I once did an essence strat for t6/t7 maps and it was quite nice yet not super profitable and involved alva incursions that lengthened the time to complete one map. Once alva was fixed for essences (rare monsters from incursions no longer dropped essences) I figured I have to go back to this at some point.

It's a combination of https://youtu.be/EsIzXb5nFro?si=YQYZticmqVg8dUU4 and https://youtu.be/fqn_FtbupCk?si=bICg3iFreQKZ6TYI. The nice thing about it is that you can take all of the t6/t7 maps that you're sitting on and just put them to use. Your profit should be oscillating around 0.8 divine per map but that also depends on the RNG when corrupting good essences (more on that later).

Make sure to update your item filter to display all essences!

If you want to use specific maps, I can recommend Courthouse, Bramble Valley, Spider Valley, Waste Pool and Dungeon (not the best layout but seems to have a lot of essences). I just took all the t7 maps I had and put them to use - great way to make money off of something that sits there and isn't valuable at all.

- take your maps and chisel them (skippable if you want to cut costs, I did it for shits and giggles)
- roll your maps until all have +#% increased number of rare monsters (I was super unlucky when doing this and I burned through 800 scours and alchs, hopefully you get that in less)
- run your map with Essence map option, 1x Essence Scarab of Calcification, 1x Essence Scarab of Ascent, 1x Scarab of Adversaries and 1x Essence Scarab of Stability
- ignore mobs, ignore the boss, just run from essence to essence
- corrupt MEDS (Misery, Envy, Dread, Scorn) essences with a Remnant of Corruption if you see them on a mob (either remember the acronym or remember that those are the only purple essences)
- ???
- essence up brotha
- you will be dropping some scarabs and maps but those are skippable, essences are the main focus (however I dropped a Mageblood in Dungeon while doing this but you can imagine this isn't too-too-too likely to happen)

You can modify the atlas tree to your liking, what I wanted to achieve with it was:
- no extra content besides essences/niko/alva
- niko for extra zoom-zoom with voltaxic sulphite (100% to be on map)
- shrines for extra zoom-zoom
- singular focus to only drop maps I want (I favourited t7 courthouse for this, remember to take out voidstones tho)

- no crystal resonance because I was corrupting good essences (I also skipped nodes for remnants of corruption on imprisoned monsters because I was buying them off the market)

- some scarab and map drop chance, high chance for harbi/ambush/cartography/essence scarabs (feeds my other strategies)
