*essences*? I did my research and now I know.

#### How to Figure It Out

Simple. Go to the daily areas, complete the quests, look at the quest rewards. Okay, let's take a step back and look at what we have. There are four daily areas.

*Crimson Badlands, Northern Wastes, Star-comm Basin*and*Malgrave*. Additionally, we have*Arcterra*but I'm not gonna count it in since it doesn't reward any*essences*and it isn't in the daily area rotation of the ten times bonus. So we need to know how many quests each of those areas has and how many*essences*they reward.#### Crimson Badlands

Going down our list we start with

*Crimson Badlands*. This deserted area has got a total of 16 guests. We have six*NPCs*or quest givers that give between one and three quests. In total, they give 11 quests. Additionally, in the underground, we got another quest. So that's 12 quests in total. There are 4 additional path quests, one for each path. Each and every one of these rewards 24*essences*by default. So we get*24 * 16 = 384**essences*doing them and*240 * 16 = 3840**essences*when it's daily. However, we just looked at one side.*Crimson Badlands*has quests for*Dominion*and quests for*Exiles*. Both sides have the same amount of quests but once you finished the*Exiles*quests you can still do the*Dominion*quests even with the ten times bonus. So we get twice the amount of*essences*. That's*384 * 2 = 768*or*3840 * 2 = 7680**essences*during the ten times bonus.
Having a signature account increases this amount further. We now get another 120

*essences*for each quest. So we have*24 + 12 = 36**essences*for every quest, 16*Dominion*and 16*Exile*quests makes 32 quests, which in return results in*36 * 32 = 1152**essences*or*360 * 32 = 11520*with the ten times bonus. We also may get the*Drusera*bonus but that one differs from person and person respective to the amount of missed*essences*so I'm not going to calculate this one.#### Northern Wastes

Our second area the cold and snowy

*Northern Wastes*daily area presents us with a 5*NPCs*or quest givers. Aside from the first, they all give 3 quests. So that's*1 + 4 * 3 = 13*quests. Again here too we have four path quests. So in total, we have 17 quests available in this frozen place. Just like*Crimson Badlands*we can complete all these quests on a*Dominion*character still getting the ten times bonus as the*Dominion*and*Exile*quests are unique. The essence reward for each quest is the same. Just like in*Crimson Badlands*we get 24 for each quest. So that's*24 * 17 = 408**essences*on one of the faction sides with the ten times bonus*240 * 17 = 4080**essences*. Doing both sides we get*24 * 34 = 816**essences*without ten times bonus and*240 * 34 = 8160*with.
So we can already see an increase in

*essences*for this area but it also takes an additional quest.#### Star-comm Basin

Here we've got a... special daily area. This one shares the quests for both

*Dominion*and*Exile*so we can only get the bonus with one of the characters. Another specialty of this area is that the quests change. There are 3 quest givers. Each gives 2 quests, so that would be*3 * 2 = 6*quests. However one of the quest givers gives different quests according to the position he's standing at and the position is relative to the current theme. So depending on when the theme changes and how often you can do six to ten quests a day plus the four path quests. So in total ten to 14 quests. The essence reward is also higher in this area. We get 40*essences*instead of 24 for each quest. That means we get between*40 * 10 = 400*and*40 * 14 = 560**essences*. With the ten times bonus that's 4000 to 5600*essences*. Now assuming you still do the area with the other faction you get an additional 400 to 560*essences.*
With all this data we're left with

*400 + 400 = 800*to*560 + 560 = 1120 essences*without ten time bonus and*4000 + 400 = 4400*to*5600 + 560 = 6160**essences*with ten times bonus. Assuming we have signature bonus this amount increases by 50%. So we get 60 instead of 40*essences*. Going through the numbers again that's between*60 * 10 = 600*and*60 * 14 = 840**essences.*With ten times bonus it's 6000 to 8400*essences*and last but not least doing it with another faction it's an additional 600 to 840*essences*. So between*600 + 600 = 1200*and*840 + 840 = 1680**essences*. Now with the ten times bonus it's*6000 + 600 = 6600*to*8400 + 840 = 9240**essences.*#### Malgrave

The last daily area and again a special one. This daily are consists of one quest rewarded after the 4th phase of a five-phase event that occurs every four hours. It happens around the

*R-12 containment facility*. This quest does reward quite a handful of*essences*though. Accepting the quest and getting the reward from the respective faction*NPC*rewards 120*essences*with the ten times bonus it's 1200*essences*. These are also possible to get with both factions so we can get 240*essences*without the bonus and 2400 with the bonus. Being a signature player we get 360*essences*without and 3600*essences*with the bonus.#### Conclusion

If we would do all the daily areas in the order they reward the most we would start with the ten times bonus. Aside from that one listing the top reward areas, we would get the following ranking:

*Northern Wastes*with 816*essences**Star-comm Basin*with 800 - 1120*essences**Crimson Badlands*768*essences**Malgrave*with 240*essences*
