A recent update introduced something called an Essence Anomaly. Anyone who plays
will know that Essence buys equipment and various account perks like the kayak, the pony cart, the hot air balloon and also musical instruments. You can run around all over the map and gather Essence that way but it’s nice to get a boost at times.
Enter the Essence Anomaly. Basically it’s a big ball of essence floating in the sky, and it’s at a random place. You have 30 minutes to travel to it, or find someone else to help you travel to it. If you are within 200 meters of it when the time is up, you get 150-250 Essence all at once. Information about these are announced as Server Events, like Mane Event, water balloon throwing parties, etc. You will also probably see plenty of talk about it in Global Chat.
Here is what the relevant news post has to say about it:
+ A random spot (up to 750 km from center, may be ocean) spawns an Essence Anomaly.
+ Every player who gets there in the allotted time will receive bonus at end.
+ Bonus is 150 to 250 essence.
+ New ‘Anomaly Researcher’ Award tracks completions.
+ Hint: SoundFX is silent as you get near the heart of the anomaly.
(There have been updates since that news posting, in distance from center, and in duration, but I’ve fixed them here.)
Wondering what that cool Essence Anomaly actually looks like?
I have pictures! I’m the guy on the black WAR UNICORN at center, with the red saddle blanket. He’s got big hooves and I’m dressed all in black with a black hat.
