So as a few of you have found out, Trion increased the frequency of Major Planar Invasions and therefore access to the infamous purple token Ancient Sourcestone. Now, for me I was ecstatic because I not only got first on shard for the Sourcestone itself but for the Major Essence I purchased. The downside however is most are complaining the essences are underwhelming and in one case worthless, unless you are a healer like myself. Here is a breakdown of what is available to purchase with your new shiny token:
Iron Pine Peak: Tananda Whitecoat in Whitefall, she sells 2 Greater Planar Essences for 1 Ancient Sourcestone and 2000 Planarite that require level 42 to equip.
Vanishing Empyreal Gem - Could be usefull/required for a DPS class later on that doesn't have a threat dump.
Frozen Deep One Tear - Don't waste your Sourcestone on this one, get the version sold in SM as they are the same family and cannot equip both, even though they do something different.
Shimmersand: Lilythe Wetstone in Fortune's Shore, her two Greaters cost 1 Ancient Sourcestone and 2500 Planarite and require level 45 to equip.
Glowing Stone Heart - There are BoE superior Essences that you can usually get off AH for ~75g that have a greater HP value than this one, don't waste the Sourcestone.
Crystalized Fire Elemental - Again may be useful later on when DPS are pushing crazy high threat.
Stillmoor: Lorna Antwar in Broken Vale, her 2 Greaters sell for 1 Ancient Sourcestone and 2500 Planarite and require level 45 to equip.
Crystalized Vampire Blood - Again don't waste the Sourcestone as there are several BoE superior Greaters that heal you for far more and even do more damage to the target.
Crystal Vine - As a healer I'm in love and this is one of if not the only Greater worth spending that shiny new token you just got on.
It is my hope in bringing up this issue that Trion will get more creative in their Greater Essences especially since there are lesser quality, lower level and FAR easier to get Greaters that are better in every way to most of the BoP high cost versions these 3 vendors sell.
