― In-game description

Hadronic Essence is a Warlock-exclusive material. It is obtainable by dismantling uncommon or rarer Warlock armor. Hadronic Essence is used in upgrading rare or higher Warlock armor.

After the release of The Taken King, these materials were no longer used and were replaced by Armor Materials. Guardians' existing Hadronic Essence can be traded for Armor Materials by Roni 55-30.[1]
