Sky: Children of the Light Wiki
Advertisement

Pieces of Light (also called Wax) are orbs that players can collect to forge Candles, one of the main currencies in Sky. They are primarily collected by lighting candles or burning Darkness. This page documents sources of light with permanent locations and precise light counts. Other sources of light that are variable, for a limited-time, or involve randomization are documented at Additional Light Sources.

Usually, light appears as red fire orbs, floating above candles that are lit or in a location where Darkness has been burned. Blue orbs may appear instead when Darkness is burned near water or when spawned by water-specific light sources (clams, fish, etc.). Blue and red fire orbs are equivalent and functionally the same.

Every day at 00:00 midnight Pacific Time (PST/PDT), all Light sources reset. Not all Darkness plants are available every day, as certain plants only appear every other day. In Golden Wasteland (but not in any other realm), all Darkness plants are available on Sundays.

Light Sources

There are several ways to collect Light. Some areas can contain their unique light sources, such as the Small Clams in Treasure Reef or the Flower Bouquets in Village Theater, but those are documented in the Additional Light Sources page.

These are some light sources, each with an estimate of how many pieces of light they give:

Total Light Count (Spoilers)

The guide below reveals the locations of pieces of light scattered in every corner of the Realms. Note: The four Daily Treasure Candles rotate to a new realm each day, accounting for a total of 200 pieces of light.

See Additional Light Sources page for the details on social light areas and events.
