    it's been sketchy for a long time now, but with this publish I agree, it is downright broken.

    The nightsight earrings have been broken like that for years, but I guess it spread to elves to now. *sigh* the game has such strange glitches.

    Nightsight with elves has been broken for a long long time...change sub server fix it. Or, you can always use thoose ear rings with nightsight - and it permanently fix it.

    I just entered Destard, Deceit and then Despise with one of my elves, wearing nothing that added night sight. The dungeons seemed illuminated, so I don't know if it's something about the patch, or what's an existing bug. Crossing certain boundaries (not server lines) tends to render elves' sight no better than humans'. Why, I don't know, but my elves carry Nocturne Earrings for this reason.

    Nightsight had been broken for me on my elves only at Primeval Lich and Abyssal Infernal. That it happens at home is new to me.

    Sorry to say but no it doesn't, the ear rings don't even fix it, at least for me they sure didn't. Every time my elf fisherman crosses the server line on his ship to Vesper waters, it gets dark, has to recall to Malas to fix it and sometimes it doesn't work and just gets dark again after he gets back on the boat - and it happens whether or not he is wearing the nocturne earrings.
