|Will they be obtainable through any of the following thing: Goblins, Shiny Chest, event rewards, some purple monsters (linked to event) or from bosses?|
|As we noted in our Patch 1.0.7 Preview, Elite monsters in Inferno will have a chance to drop an account-bound crafting reagent called Demonic Essence. We also intend for bosses in Inferno to have a chance to drop Demonic Essences, but that change may not be active until a later PTR build. Elites and bosses will have the same drop rates for Demonic Essences. |
Thanks for the great question!
|Thanks for letting us know! |
Those pesky Treasure Goblins weren't intended to be able to drop Demonic Essences, so we'll be checking their pockets behind the scenes to get this bug sorted out. :)
|After further consideration and discussion, we've decided to allow Treasure Goblins to retain their chance to drop a Demonic Essence. (Those goblins drive a hard bargain!)|
