This article is about the debuff. For the painting, see Darkness (Painting).

Darkness is a debuff that decreases the player's light vision. The effect is much like the Night Owl buff in reverse, dimming rather than amplifying provided light. Debuffed entities will also gain a bluish tint.

Equipping the Blindfold makes the player immune to the debuff.
