Crystal of darkness is a type of gem that essentially casts Darkness for free when used. The radius of the effect seems to be affected by Willpower — as with the spell, though by a slightly different formula.

Desirability[]

They can be rather desirable for classes that have problems reading spellbooks and thus can't cast the Darkness spell on demand, though the effectiveness of darkness was reduced after v. 1.1.1. They can be replaced by scrolls of darkness.

Guaranteed/Common sources[]

Generic loot. Can also be obtained while mining (or using ants/dwarves/giant raccoons to mine) if character has Gemology skill.
