The Miner’s Helmet is a simple but effective tool for lighting your way in dark areas without resorting to torches. It works immediately when you put it on and you’ll learn the recipe as soon as you get a lantern.
The difference is pretty stark and while it won’t illuminate everything the same as torches, it works as if you were holding a flashlight to light up your immediate vicinity.
The helmet works best in caves and ravines where it’s darkest but it will work perfectly fine at night outside and makes for easier travel in risky environments.
And even better is this helmet will also help to illuminate underwater!
