    There seems to be a problem with the display of the Ricardo's lantern while in the Underworld. I have confirmed this on two shards with two different accounts. The lanterns do not seem to be bugged in this way in other dungeons, or at least in the Orc cave or Destard. I did not have a chance to check them within the Abyss, however.

    In the image below, the figure on the left shows the buggy display of the Ricardo's lantern after running a few steps into the Underworld. The lantern looks like this the whole time the character is in the Underworld. The figure on the right shows what the same lantern looks like before entering and after exiting the Underworld.

    Well, after grabbing a character on yet another shard and giving her a Ricardo's lantern and running her through the Underworld, the Abyss, stepping into Fel from the Abyss, and then running through and exiting via the Tomb of Kings, I'm unsure whether or not this is a bug or deliberate. I don't usually carry the lanterns on my characters that visit those places, so maybe this has been happening all along for the last five years and it just took me this long to notice it.

    In any event, whether or not it is a bug, this is what it looks like in the Abyss with no nightsight in effect, colored lighting, dark nights, and with the lantern "illuminated." The lantern looks unlit in the paperdoll but casts a reddish violet light on the ground. When you are in the Underworld and the Tomb of Kings, the lighting is brighter, even without nightsight on and even when it is night outside, so the reddish violet glow is not anywhere as noticeable, but the lantern on the paperdoll still has the odd "unlit" look.

    Here is what it looked like stepping through into Fel (had nightsight earrings on and dark nights was not checked, however). Notice how the lantern shows its normal "illuminated" look on the paperdoll.

    Are you talking about Elder Dugan's quest that gives you a Candlewood Torch?
