Notes[edit]

  • A ghostly aura can be obtained from eating the following foods:
  • You will need to buy/craft four foods, because while the nourishment does last the stated duration, the ghostly aura disappears when leaving a map.
  • It is recommended to eat the food just before killing the boss to ensure you have the ghostly aura active when it is defeated. However, this is only necessary for Tequatl the Sunless, so for the other chests one can alternatively disable "Autoloot: Quick Interact" to avoid immediately looting the chest when it spawns, giving you time to put on the ghostly aura.
  • The chest required for the Ghostly Curse Essence in Vizier's Tower is the Grand Chest which spawns after completing the Kill the Risen wizard patrolling the Vizier's Tower event, not the Orrian chest which triggers the event.
