    Since I have started playing the game (a little more than 1 month), I never found any explanation on how to use all the essences I am collecting (essences of vigor, silver essences, ...), except for echanging silver essences for scrolls.
    I have noticed I can "equip" essences into 2 slots, but could not find how to use them...
    Furthermore, though having spent some time searching for explanations on this forum, I could not find any explanation or tutorial on this subject...
    Could someone tell me what I have obviously missed?

    in order to "use" essences just equip them and you'll see your damage growing up (in case of a damage buff). Special essences as silver essences are used to deal damage to immune monsters like werewolves during full moon event.
    And yes you can equip essences on the 2 bottom-right slots of your UI and to switch between them press " X " on the keyboard.

    Thanks, I will try further.
    I only noticed these essence slots very recently and was not sure which one was the "equipped" one, or any noticeable effect since I started to figure this out.
