Blood Moon Essence is one of the unique crafting resources that players will likely end up farming to craft and upgrade their gear. It is not that simple to find, but that’s what makes it rewarding to acquire.

In total, there are two methods through which you can get the Blood Moon Essence. The first method does not need you to play any main or side quest. Rather, it requires you to visit Yaesha at the perfect time. The second way to get Blood Moon will require deciding to complete the Harp Puzzle quest.

1. Blood Moon Orbs In Yaesha

Perhaps the easiest way to get the Blood Moon Essence is to visit the Yaesha region at the right time for them to spawn. However, for that, you will need to wait until there is a Blood Moon active. The only way to find out if the Blood Moon is active or not is simply by looking at it. If you take a look at the sky and find the moon filled with red color, you will know it is the right time.

  • Once you are in the right place at the right time, carefully observe your surroundings.
  • Based on Remnant 2’s RNG, you will come across flying red orbs in the sky.
  • Since these orbs will be at a distance, make sure you equip a good long-range weapon.
  • Make sure you take these orbs down in a single shot because they do not remain there for long.

2. Forgotten Temple And Doe

Once you come across the Water Harp Puzzle quest, you will come across the Root Corrupted Wolf. Upon encountering it, you will have to fight against its rival, the Doe. During that, you will have an option of either sparing or killing the Doe.

While both options come with significant outcomes, for the Blood Moon Essence, you will have to kill the Doe. As you choose that option, the area outside the Forgotten Temple will also become a reliable spot for Blood Moon Essence’s spawn, making it easier to farm.

However, I farmed the Blood Moon Essence by visiting Yaesha during the Blood Moon. I recommend you also do the same as it is the best way to farm a large number of Blood Moon Essence.

After using the methods mentioned above to get the Blood Moon Essence, farm enough of it to put it to good use; once you have enough, go to Yaesha, where you will find the Blood Moon Altar. It will appear on your map as a blue icon. Moreover, you can recognize it as it looks like a small crafting station having a Blood Moon image.

There, you will be able to exchange the Blood Moon Essence with other things, such as Faded Grimoire and various equipment and items. If you want to summon minions, you should farm enough Blood Moon Essence so you can get the Faded Grimoire. With it, you can unlock the Summoner Archetype, a strong pet class.

In total, there are nine items that players can get after collecting enough Blood Moon Essence.

The items are:

ItemMaterials Required

All in all, to get the Remnant 2 Blood Moon Essence, you will need to wait for the right time. Visit Yaesha and see if the sky turns red. If it does, it will mean that the Blood Moon is active. So, during that, you will observe some Blood Moon orbs flying in the sky. Make sure you have a good enough weapon that can one-shot the orbs, as they will disappear quickly.
