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
Lantern Abilities are activated by briefly holding down the key/button bound to your lantern control. Abilities can only be activated once your lantern is fully charged. Activating an ability makes the lantern enter a time-based cooldown to charge up completely before they can be used again.
Note: As of patch 1.7.0 with the introduction of Omnicells, Lanterns now possess a single ability (earlier activated as the "Hold Ability").
Lanterns charge over time (30 sec cooldown), but certain interactions can affect this cooldown. Using an aether vent reduces your lantern ability cooldown by 20%, collecting Aether Wisps reduces your lantern ability cooldown by 10%. Lantern charge build-up/cooldown can also be tweaked by using Perks:
- Aetheric Attunement can increase the lantern charge rate by up to 50% (approximately reduces the charging cooldown up to 33.3%)
- Aetheric Evasion can reduce the charging cooldown by up to 35% on dodging through an attack.
Lantern abilities can be activated while performing any other action without interruption.
