Can someone confirm this drops from mobs on live? I haven't seen any purple tier essences drop in Mordor at all. Just the yellow tier 9 Dark & Empowered Dark Essences. Only way to get Shadowed Essences I know of is through crafting. --Ravanel (talk) 14:49, 14 August 2017 (UTC)

Yes I can confirm that Shadowed rare quality essences do occasionally drop off world mobs in Mordor. Seen it happen twice. --Gaerlin (talk) 14:56, 14 August 2017 (UTC)
Cheers! It should probably be added to all Shadows Essence pages, then. It currently only says so on three.
Also, this is the first time I've seen the verified tag being used. Is that meant to be used for all pages, or is it a beta thing? It feels a bit superfluous, as we also have page history for checking who last checked & changed the page? Just thinking out loud. :) --Ravanel (talk) 15:29, 14 August 2017 (UTC)
Yes we should update all T9 essences to state this. In fact probably good to just make a template with standard text.
Also yes we've been using {{verified}} on all pages for a while now. It's designed to give the casual user a nice clear visual indication of how recently the info on the page was verified was in-game. I know they can see the last update time at the bottom of the page, but that's not necessarily the same as the last time the information on the page was verified (I.e. It could have just been a spelling correction or something). I think it basically helps to increase the confidence that readers have in the info. --Gaerlin (talk) 17:00, 14 August 2017 (UTC)
