It protects you against confusion.

Clarity is an intrinsic which protects you from most sources of confusion, mesmerisation, fear, sleep, and from going berserk unwillingly (though you may still intentionally go berserk as normal).

Clarity does not protect you from the following:

You can acquire clarity from the following sources:


Immunity to multiple statuses, namely confusion and sleep, is nice. But most things that clarity protects against can also be blocked with sufficient willpower (the Confuse and Sleep spells, mesmerise, fear) or rPois (Mephitic Cloud). Having clarity can help if you don't have these, but since sources of clarity are so rare, it's usually more of a bonus than anything. Mummies find it particularly valuable, since they can't drink a potion of curing to end confusion.

Clarity is the only way to prevent confusion from tarantellas, and one of the few ways to prevent sleep from dream sheep.


  • In 0.28, clarity once again blocks all sources of unintentional berserk. Also, the autumn katana lost clarity.
  • In 0.27.1, clarity does not protect against going berserk when using items with the berserkitis intrinsic (such as the zealot's sword or the necklace of Bloodlust).
  • Prior to 0.19, clarity did not protect against fear and sleep.
  • Prior to 0.18, clarity made potions of ambrosia useless. The amulet of clarity was also removed.
