Icon Potion of brilliance.png
A magic potion which increases the power of the drinker's spells and halves their magic cost.

For the removed unrand, see Brilliance (artefact).

Quaffing a potion of brilliance gives the Brilliance status, with the following temporary bonuses:

  • Halves the MP cost of spells (rounded up)
  • An increase to spell power

These effects last 35 to 74 turns. Drinking the potion when the status is already active will increase the duration, but never to over 80 turns. Although its effects are only temporary, a potion of brilliance can improve the amount and damage of a caster's spells.


  • Prior to 0.25, brilliance reduced spell failure rates by 1/3, with an additional +6 wizardry, instead of halving spell costs.
