How to Get the Lens Recipe in Nightingale

Craig Robinson

The lens is one of the refined materials that players can create in Nightingale. For the most part, the lens craft is used for specific glass-themed objects, such as the Refined Enchanter’s Focus, Spyglass, and other items of such nature. Yet, finding where those crafts come from can be illusive. On this page, we teach you how to craft and find the Lens in Nightingale.

This guide teaches you how to unlock the Lens Recipe in Nightingale.

How to Craft the Lens in Nightingale

First up, players will often get the Lens they need in Nightingale by crafting it. To do so, the Lens comes from the Brazier crafting station, which is a recipe players can buy in the Provisioner Realm Card worlds. Go ahead and get the recipe from the Forest Provisioner Realm Essence Trader, then return to our base to craft it.

Get the Brazier Crafting Station

Once at home, place the Brazier blueprint down and craft it using Shafts and Ingots, both of which you get from the Simple Smelter. Once it is built, you can scroll through the Brazier and find lots of new items. However, the one you want now sits right at the top of the menu under a folder called Crafting: Refinement. Click on the Lens, and you can start crafting it out of Glass, another material, under the Brazier crafting station in the menu below. You will need two glass per Lens.

For the most part, you will need two Lens to create the Refined Enchanter’s Focus. This crafter’s bench will enable you to create even more advanced Realm Cards, which is important for accessing the Desert Herbarium realm for the quest progression.

And there you have it. You now know how to get the Lens in Nightingale. Good luck with your crafting needs and progressing into the next stage of the game.

Nightingale is a PvE open-world survival crafting game with a few unique features for the genre. First among these is the Realm Card system, whereby players can discover and craft Major or Minor realm cards to influence aspects of procedurally generated worlds or character attributes respectively. You may find yourself in a more forgiving or hostile world depending on the Major cards you use, but the Minor cards can give you an edge against foes with boosts to damage, health, stamina, or other aspects of survival. The game is set in the Victorian era and has more than a little influence from Steampunk fiction, so if that’s anything like your thing, you’ll love this world!
