At this rate i might as well trade all my commons for keys.

So, what, that's around four and half hours of Diretide, probably more because you don't get an Essence every time, and maybe less because of trading?

I don't suppose you'd be willing to trade one of your shiny blue things for a shiny red thing?

I've played diretide all day today (8+ hours) and haven't got a single shadow or unusual essence. Since the start of the event, I have got one unusual and 0 shadows. The drop rates are super low.

I got the Shadow Essence from my first game. Then I read about it and concluded it was a piece of crap.

I hate resorting to violence...

I have just seen my first ever Unusual Essence. Thanks, Ninja.

Personally i've yet to even SEE either of those drop. :V

But why? And in all the games of Diretide i've played, i haven't seen anyone get a shadow essence.

I got a shadow in like my fifth game. I was thinking that I would hang onto it in case I didn't get anything interesting to turn my egg into before the event ended and trade it for something if I did.
