- These can all be found in the Fallow Mire at Old Thoroughfare, the Weeping Spires, and Granite Point (see Gallery). When a pure wisp is killed in these areas, they have a chance of dropping its essence. It may take multiple visits to an area in order for them to drop one.
- With The Short List Inquisition perk, there is a chance that Barnabus in Val Royeaux will have an infinite number of Wisp Essences for sale for 000000002020 each. Re-entering Val Royeaux map resets his inventory.
- They can also drop during any encounter at rifts.
