That's some pretty expensive glass...

In Nightingale, you need to make Glass to make Ink to form new Realm Cards. Getting this Glass requires you to get Gems, however, something that doesn’t seem apparent. Here’s how to get some.

How to get Gems in Nightingale

Getting Gems in Nightingale is not as complex as it may seem. You must remember that in Nightingale, you can make items from any of the raw materials you find, although better raw materials will make better quality items, even if just slightly. Gems don’t necessarily mean items like Diamonds or Rubies, like in other games, but even things as simple as Quartz.

To start mining Gems, you’ll need to get yourself a Simple Pick from the Simple Work Bench. It only requires some Wood Bundles, Stone Blocks, and Straps, which can be crafted from the Simple Tanning Rack.

Once you’ve got a Simple Pick, look around for rocky outcrops with what looks like a copper or mineral vein. Near those should spawn different mineable material deposits, such as Quartz. Upon finding one, start hacking into it. It’ll explode into the Gem that you need.

I’d recommend mining all that you see to stock up on Gems.

How to make Glass in Nightingale

With the Gems readily in your inventory, you now need to refine them into Glass. This can be done through the Simple Smelter, which can be bought from the Essence Trader and then built.

It’ll cost 55 Essence to buy and then you’ll need only four Stone Blocks and six Rocks, resources that can be very easily acquired.

Much like the Campfire, on the right you can input fuel, and on the left, you can decide what to smelt. Choose Glass, then auto-fill. Now you can start the process. Making Glass requires two Gems of the same type. The Smelter also has other uses, such as refining Ore into Ingots. This structure will be integral to your progress.

Wait for it to smelt, then you can pick it up and make whatever you wish with it.

As you progress in Nightingale, different types of Gems will open up to you to make different types of Glass. But for now, you don’t need to worry about that.

Now that you’re familiar with making Glass in Nightingale, why don’t you have a look at playing co-op?
