Will they be obtainable through any of the following thing: Goblins, Shiny Chest, event rewards, some purple monsters (linked to event) or from bosses?

Just yellow/blue elites, unless they omitted the others from the patch preview for some reason.

Well, that's disappointing.

As we noted in our Patch 1.0.7 Preview, Elite monsters in Inferno will have a chance to drop an account-bound crafting reagent called Demonic Essence. We also intend for bosses in Inferno to have a chance to drop Demonic Essences, but that change may not be active until a later PTR build. Elites and bosses will have the same drop rates for Demonic Essences.

Thanks for the great question!

Thanks for letting us know!

Those pesky Treasure Goblins weren't intended to be able to drop Demonic Essences, so we'll be checking their pockets behind the scenes to get this bug sorted out. :)

*Edit*

As noted in this follow-up post, we've decided to allow Treasure Goblins to retain their chance to drop a Demonic Essence.

I love the goblins but in my own humble opinion they sneak and steal everything, I think the Demonic Essence should be allowed to drop on them.

In all intensive purposes they act almost like an elite with the rest of the gear they drop. Gems +lots of blues + a couple rares + tomes. Should leave the esscence in there :)

I played on the PTR for a while and had a few Demonic Essences drop... and maybe they're just new and I'm not used to seeing them in yellow, but upon first glance of the loot, they get lost among any other rares. This is just nitpicky feedback and solely my opinion, but I might like to see them in a violet color so they stand out more. Or orange (not legendary-orange aka brown). Just something to make them "pop on first drop".

Also, their inventory image looks a bit like the Enchantress token for the Cauldron.

Has the gem making been improved so we can finially create them faster and not spend hours doing it?

For future reference the saying is 'intents and purposes' not intensive purposes.

Am I the only one that thinks account bound items should stay in wow and stop creeping into diablo?

NoobSauce - it's better than dealing with the AH, imo. Lesser of two evils, if you will.
