Lanterns can be bought in various shops, most commonly in the Western Hive territory. Lanterns serve as a light source when it's dark and are equipped on the Belt slot.

Occasionally, while passing a Hive merchant they will chase after you and pressure you into purchasing a lantern. Merchants will highly recommend that you buy a lantern before entering the Fog Islands.

Lanterns are very useful in crafting or labouring for removing the penalties associated with lack of light during the night.
