Essence of a Chosen Locations
Essence of a Chosen allow you to fully upgrade your enhancements. There are 6 total in the game. Five of them are dropped by secret mini-bosses found in specific areas. The final Essence of a Chosen can be bought from Vulgrim for 5000 souls after you’ve defeated six of the seven sins. The five hidden bosses can be found in the Hollows, in Haven, in the Bonelands, in the Depths, and in the Scar. If you’re having trouble finding them, use the video guide below to locate each mini-boss.
There are 12 types of Enhancements, which you can equip on your weapons to give them passive effects. Each Enhancement can be upgraded down either an Angelic path or a Demonic path, which alters the bonus you receive. Once you get it to a “Balanced” state, you’ll get the benefits of both paths. You’ll need to use artifacts to upgrade them.
