Lanterns Icon 002.png

Lanterns are rechargeable gear which can provide beneficial active effects in combat. They are crafted by Arkan Drew, Ramsgate's aethersmith. For lantern skins or transmogs, see lantern skins. See also Lantern Attunement


Lanterns have two abilities that are activated depending on how the lantern button is pressed:

  • Instant Abilities are activated by pressing and then quickly releasing the lantern button. These abilities charge over time. (30 sec cooldown)
  • Hold Abilities are activated by holding the lantern button down for a set amount of time and they can only be activated when the lantern is fully charged. Lantern charge is gained by dealing weapon damage, collecting Aether Wisps or drinking from Aether Vents. The Aetheric Attunement and Aetheric Frenzy perks increase lantern charge gained from dealing damage. Maximum lantern charge is 1000.

Both ability types can be activated while performing any other actions without interrupting them.
