TriviaEdit

Elitium

Old "Nitain" icon.

  • Prior to Hotfix 25.7.6, Vitus Essence's icon was a recolored Nitain Extract icon.
    • Similarly, while Nitain Extract is internally labeled as "Alertium", Vitus Essence is labeled as "Elitium" – Arbitrations were originally workshopped under the moniker of Elite Alerts.
  • Vitus means "of life" in Latin, the item's name can be taken literally as essence of life.
