    I've updated the image with what looks to be the full list of essences for each class:

    So it looks like the BiS tank essences are one from the rogues section and one from the warrior section =P 94 and 97 end respectively. Poor clerics?

    Someone needs to pass a memo along to whomever's doing itemization these days that tanks don't really care about anything other than endurance. You give me an essence that only has 100 endurance and whatever element resist, and I'll use that over anything else in my core.

    Avoidance stats are summarily worthless and block/deflect caps on its own without any concentrated effort to do so, so the only thing that's worth anything for tanks is raw endurance.

    Either the content has to be made to lend value to avoidance stats... or the item system needs some actual thought and attention instead of just slapping slightly higher numbers on older gear pieces and calling it a new item.

    I managed to get my hands on this disgusting thing and it was a 5sp/10end upgrade over the essence I replaced it with. I'm not even a min/max kind of person, I don't know why I decided to upgrade it to relic. It was a shard (and probably world) first though.

    I think it varies depending on the gear. Could be wrong though.

    However, if we look at PvP Essences - you basically:
    • Can't have multiples of the same item. Same as the 'Unique' restriction.
    • Can't put on Essences of a different class. I.e. for the PvP Essences, a Cleric can get all 6 Cleric Essences, but they can't put on a PvP Mage Essence in the same focus as a PvP Cleric Essence.

    So "Unique - Family" in this context probably means "you can put on ONE of each of the essences of a single Class into your focus. But you can't combine multiple classes' essences into the same Focus for that type".

    So you probably can't place any Essences that say "Unique - Family" that are for Mages into a Focus that already has a "Unique - Family" Essence that is Cleric.

    the epic and relic are the same "family" so you won't be able to equip the epic version and the relic version. Unlike the rep essences which are just unique equip, allowing you to have both the epic and relic version equipped

    Basically with these essences you can use two but only one from each rift. Bloodfire is a "family" and Insurgent's is a "family".
