- The ESSENCE command now shows exact numbers

- Zydramir journals reduce essence costs by 33%

- All essence costs and gains have been changed to fit into this scale, details below

- Consuming of corpses and hearts had its essence gain adjusted as well

[120] - New soulbind: Absorbing provides a 20% chance to give 20 essence when hit

- Carving and dispeling Malignosis pentagrams no longer costs essence

- Drain transfers 200 essence per tick

- Possess costs 500 essence to establish, 100 to travel
