A cold stream of water flows from the Winter Kingdom of Hiberheim directly into this swirling, enchanted orb.

Water essence is a crafting component in Divinity: Original Sin 2


A blue orb imbued with the essence of water. On its own it has no use. However, it is a key component in crafting Hydrosophist scrolls and Potions of Nimble Tumble. It can also be used to create freezing arrows.

The higher the quality the more powerful scroll can be crafted from it. More powerful orbs can be used to craft less powerful scrolls.

Following table shows all items for which this item is used for. Note that for more powerful Hydrosophist scrolls a better quality Water essence is required. If the scroll utilises base water essence it is possible to use higher quality essence as substitute. In short you cannot use Water Essence in recipe requiring Alien Water Essence or High Quality Water Essence.
