So I went exploring today and didn't get the item... Is it because I was using left over energy from yesterday?
I didn't feed my companion because I still had 100+ energy left since I didn't go exploring much yesterday. And it's already a new server day where I am so it's weird I'm not finding the item
Well, that's weird. I found it without problem. Maybe try with an energy potion? It might be a bug or they really made the item only obtainable with diary energy, wich wouldn't make any sense.
