Trove All Prismatic Essence Locations Guide

This Trove Prismatic Essence location guide shows you how to get every Essence so you can craft the new Dazzling Dracolyte costume.

The Trove Splendid Summer 2020 event launched recently, and it offers players an array of cool new quests to complete. One of those new quests involves collecting all seven Trove Prismatic Essences. Once you have all of the essences, you can use them to craft a Dazzling Dracolyte costume, which literally transforms you into a dragon.

The guide below shows you the locations for each of the Trove Prismatic Essences, including if they come from defeating enemies or if they can be found in chest. Some Essences can also be crafted, and we'll tell you what you'll need to do just that. 

Trove All Prismatic Essence Locations Guide

Pearl of Wisdom Prismatic Essence

Craft the first Prismatic Essence with the Pearl of Wisdom at the Radiant Dayspring workbench.

The first Prismatic Essence can be crafted using a Pearl of Wisdom at the Radiant Dayspring workbench.

Pearls of Wisdom can be obtained randomly by defeating enemies and completing dungeons. They can also be found inside chests and caches:

  • Chaos Chest
  • Lesser Geodian Topside Cache
  • Greater Geodian Topside Cache

Red Prismatic Essence

The Red Essence can be crafted at the Dragon Crucible workbench.

Once you have crafted the first Essence from the Pearl of Wisdom, you can consume the first Essence to unlock the clues for the location of the second Essence, which is the Red Essence.

Go to Dragon Crucible workbench at the hub, and walk up to its right eye. Jump up to the eye and press "Square" on PS4, "X" on Xbox One, or "E" on PC. This will open the workbench, allowing you to craft the Red Prismatic Essence for 50x Dragon Coins.

Dragon Coins can be easily obtained by completing Hourly Challenges.

Orange Prismatic Essence

To get the third Essence, Orange, you must travel to Cerise Sandsea. You will see an entrance into a spiral cave in the center of the biome, as indicated in the map above.

Go inside the cave, and go all the way down to the bottom of it. When you reach the dead end, you will find a Flowering Marigold.

Consume your Red Essence now and interact with the Flowering Marigold. It will instantly transform into an Orange Essence.

Yellow Prismatic Essence

Get the Yellow Essence from Ganda, the Sky Shepherd.

This Essence can be collected from a Ganda trail block. Ganda, the Sky Shepherd is a rare mount, which creates a yellow trail of blocks.

This is how you get Ganda:

  1. Travel to Treasure Isles
  2. Go to Golden Vendor Ship
  3. Talk to Merchant of Marvels
  4. Purchase a Trove of Wonders chest

If you're lucky enough, you will get Ganda in one of these chests, which generate random rare loot. So try until you get one.

When you finally get Ganda, mount it and press "Square" on PS4, "X" on Xbox One, or "E" on PC for it to produce a trail of yellow blocks. When standing on top of one of the yellow blocks, consume your Orange Essence, and it will immediately produce one Yellow Essence.

Green Prismatic Essence

The Green Essence requires a green torch, green Faernflower Pip, and Insta-Grower.

It's relatively easy to get the Green Prismatic Essence. All you need is to craft three items:

  • Green Torch
  • Green Faernflower Pip
  • Insta-Grower

You can craft a Green Torch using the Faerie Workbench. The Faernflower Pip can be crafted in the Dabber, and the Insta-Grower can be purchased for 1,500 credits in the Flower Power Pack.

Once you have all three items, place the Faernflower Pip next to the Green Torch and apply Insta-Grower. When the flower blooms, you can consume your Yellow Essence and harvest it. The Pip will immediately transform into the Green Essence.

Blue Prismatic Essence

A map showing the location of the Blue Essence in the Deep Sea Dragon lair.

The Blue Essence can be found in any of Trove's drowned worlds. Locate any portal and go inside the Deep Sea Dragon lair.

Kill the dragon. You will see a cave entrance next to the exit portal. At the very end of that cave, you will find the Blue Orb decoration.

Consume your Green Essence and interact with the orb. This will open a workbench, where you can craft Blue Essence for 6x Deep Sea Dragon Egg Fragments.

These fragments are dropped by the Thallasion world boss, which randomly spawns in any of the open seas biomes.

Purple Prismatic Essence

The Purple Essence can be found in the Old Hub area, from the Trove alpha version.

The last essence can be found in the Old Hub (the original hub), which was used in the alpha version of Trove.

To get to the Old Hub, you must travel to X coordinates -2500, or simply go west from the new hub until you reach the Sea of Regret.

Go through the portal and claim your Cornerstone anywhere in the water surrounding the Old Hub. Then, go to the very bottom of the Cornerstone and enter the underground cave.

Locate a player named Kevin. Once located, consume your Blue Essence and interact with Kevin. This will open a workbench, where you can craft the Purple Essence for 10x Heart of Darkness.

Heart of Darkness drops from Shadow Titan boss at the Shadow Tower.
