    This is another thing I just discovered today. When you die in the enhanced client, you are in the dark if you are in a dungeon as a ghost. This is a serious disadvantage for the enhanced client. I found myself switching to the classic client to extricate myself from Hythloth today. Not to mention that there are no locations, like exits, marked on dungeon maps.

    Please change this.

    What do you mean in the dark? I die quite a bit and its grey just like 2d.

    That's odd. Must be a graphical glitch. I guess I'll have to bug report it.

    ...

    Not sure if I've seen it in the legacy dungeons, but I know that the Abyss is dark when you are in ghost mode... not completely dark, but pretty dark, and lightsources are more visible (i.e. wisps and the siver sapling).

    Ya, I'm pretty sure it isn't just me. Maybe it's a video driver thing, but I lose nightvision when I am a ghost, and the lights in the dungeons do allow me to get around for the most part, but it is still much easier in the classic client.

    Not just you.
    I reported it after dying in the Abyss a month or two ago.
