Players will need to go through a storyline in one of the worlds in Remnant 2 to get the Shining Essence Echo. Let’s start by discussing the general location of the storyline.


To begin, the location players will need to get to is N’Erud. N’Erud is one of the explorable worlds in Remnant 2 with its own quests bosses and enemies. While players traverse the lands of N’Erud they’ll come across many building structures and one of these will contain an NPC called The Custodian.

The custodian serves as the main protector of the N’Erud and Drzyr. He can be found close to the Ascension Spire waypoint at the Phantom Wasteland.

The Custodian will Task the players to face Tal’Ratha and to acquire the Shining Essence Echo and bring it back to him. This storyline will make the players go through a series of events where they will need to go into vaults scattered throughout N’Erud. The first of which Players can get to after completing a dungeon is called the Eon Vault.

The purpose of the first task is to acquire the Soul Spark Cylinder which can be acquired after solving the Green Capsule Room event. After receiving the Soul Spark Cylinder, I recommend that Players must make their way to the Forgotten Prison where they will find Tal’Ratha.

Players will start of the interaction with a cutscene. A conversation will happen in which players have two options. Either being a sacrifice and being consumed, or not being eaten. If players choose not to be eaten they will face Tal’Ratha as the boss. If players decide on being consumed they will face the Metaphysical Tal’Ratha.

After beating the boss players will receive the following rewards:

  • Lumenite Crystal
  • Scrap
  • Spiced Bile
  • Shining Essence Echo
  • Tome of Knowledge

Option 1

Players can choose to give the Shining Essence Echo to the Custodian who will, in return give the player a Siphon Heart.

The relic offers 11.5% of base damage as lifesteal for the player. This Relic is great for DPS builds who want to focus on survivability.

Option 2

Players can also use the Shining Essence Echo to craft the Void Idol at the Drzyr Replicator. The Void Idol is an amulet that increases Reload Speed by 20% and makes it so that reloads only require 50% of the magazine from reserve to fully reload. This amulet is good for builds struggling with ammo management.

To craft the Void Idol players will also need 15 Hardened Iron and 1000 Scrap.

Wrap Up
