Essence of Light


An essence of light has many various effects when used on a certain mob. To feed the mob the essence, right-click on it.

After a mob has been fed the essence, it will apply the following effect:

  • A tamed bat horse above cloud level (around layer 150) will transform into a pegasus. However, the player must use the essence on the bat horse when not riding it (you have to dismount the horse).
  • Pegasus and unicorns will have their restored if their health is low.
  • If a pegasus and unicorn are paired together, under the normal breeding conditions, they will breed and eventually disappear, leaving behind a baby fairy horse.
  • A tamed nightmare will turn into a unicorn.
  • A tamed lion, white lion, white tiger or liger will gain wings and be able to fly.
  • An adult ostrich will be turned into a unihorned ostrich.
  • A tamed mother wyvern will turn into a light wyvern.
  • A wyvern egg will appear by a tamed wyvern's feet, which the player can pick up.
  • An undead horse, undead unicorn or undead pegasus will have its flesh restored.

After using the essence, a glass bottle will appear in the player's inventory.
