"This opaline, phosphorescent globe fits into the palm of a human hand and glows with the light of auroras absorbed eons ago."

Like torches, glowspheres are equipped in a hand slot and provide illumination in dark environments. They differ in the following ways:

  • Glowspheres never burn out.
  • A single glowsphere weighs much less than a stack of torches.
  • Glowspheres provide significantly more light, giving you a much larger field of vision.
  • While torches serve as passable off-hand weapons, glowspheres are mostly harmless.

Trading in a large stack of torches for a single glowsphere will likely free up a lot of carrying capacity for you, but you may notice a significant drop in your damage output, especially if you have training in dual wielding. Whether this trade-off is worth it is up to you.
