Force and Health Essence Locations
Search the indicated locations to find Life and Force Essences. Collect three of each to increase your maximum force or health meters.
Force Essence 1: Use Force Slow on the fan-blades to enter the room with a bunch of spinning fans. Use Force Slow again on the floor-blades to cross over and get the first essence.
Life Essence 1: Near the fan-blade chamber is a dark passage blocked by bars. Cut through them, and follow the path to an optional boss. This creature is too difficult for your first visit. Return later when you are stronger. It guards a life essence.
Life Essence 2: From the Subterranean Refuge checkpoint, proceed down the path that leads to a narrow pass you must wall-run and jump up. At the top, turn around and wall-run and jump to the swinging vines to reach a hidden alcove.
Force Essence 2: At the Abandoned Workshop, climb up the vines from the water and use the Scomp Link upgrade to hack the door and get the essence on the other side.
Force Essence 3: From the Crash Site, go to the left raised platform and use Overcharge to disable the red shield. Squeeze through to reach a tall circular room. Follow the stairs up to a narrow path that leads to a mini-boss arena -— proceed down the dark path to a puzzle room. Cut the electricity wire to cross the water and reach a lift that leads to an essence.
Life Essence 3: In the Crash Site, locate the dark cave with three smashers. Once you have the Overcharge upgrade, activate the smashers and use Force Slow to jump the gaps and reach the essence.
Life Essence 4: In the Tomb Of Miktrull, you will reach a series of circular platforms. Land on the platform with the vine wall you need to ride, and push an exploded plant into the cracked wall to reveal the location.
Force Essence 4: In the Spire Of Miktrull, in the third level of the central section, enter the side-passage with a gate. Use Force Push to get a fire lantern, then throw it up and above the lowered gate to burn through the vines.
Force Essence 5: At the Imperial Refinery checkpoint above where giant spiders are fighting stormtroopers below, proceed to the raised cliff where a stormtrooper is shooting. There is a narrow passage there that leads to the essence and an optional boss.
Life Essence 5: Proceed up the path that connects the Shadowlands to the Overground Pass, which is where you can push the pipe down to create a shortcut. The shortcut is located right after the room with a Purge Trooper and multiple other troopers guarding the Wookie prison block.
Force Essence 6: In the Forest Trench area, right near the landing pad, return to the room where you get the BD-1 Overcharge upgrade. Ride the zip-line up to the essence once you unlock the ascender.
