Blue Nightshade can be very useful as it improves your stealth ability. Apart from that, players can also use Blue Nightshade to upgrade the Stealth Armor Set. However, the use of Blue Nightshade doesn’t end here. Blue Nightshade can be used for the following purposes in the game:

  4. Side Quest Completion


Use Blue Nightshade as an ingredient to prepare dishes that enhance stealth for a specific duration. For instance, combining five Blue Nightshades creates a dish that grants 10 minutes of improved stealth. You can also combine Blue Nightshade with other ingredients possessing stealth effects, such as Silent Princess or Sneaky River Snail.

Weapon Fusion

Fuse Blue Nightshade with weapons, arrows, or shields. When fused with a weapon, it adds one point of attack power, increasing its damage output. Fusing Blue Nightshade with arrows or shields does not have any known effects.
