How to get Nightingale Realm Cards

You can get Nightingale Realm Cards by looting Fae chests, completing quests and Sites of Power, or crafting them yourself at a Simple Enchanter’s Focus crafting bench.

Before you can craft Nightingale Realm Cards, you need to have its crafting recipe first. Your first port of call should be the Nightingale Essence Dealer, who sells a range of Realm Card crafting recipes starting at 30 Essence Dust.

Standard Realm Cards require Alchemical Ink, Paper, and Essence Dust as standard, though the amount required varies depending on the card. You can craft Alchemical Ink at a Simple Mortar Station with Refined Pigment and Glass, while Paper can be crafted using Wood Bundles at the Simple Saw Table.

How to use Nightingale Realm Cards

You can use Nightingale Realm cards by interacting with a Realm Card Machine or Realmic Transmuter, depending on the type of Realm Card you want to use.

Realm Card Machines resemble an old-fashioned Victorian printing press and can be found near portals in the open-world game. To activate a portal with Nightingale Realm Card, simply drag and drop a Biome Card and Major Card from your collection onto the empty slots in the Realm Card Machine’s menu, and open the portal.

Nightingale Realmic Transmuters are elaborate golden orreries that are typically found at the top of Fae Towers. These machines are where you use your Minor Cards, and unlike Realm Card Machines, these changes take place instantaneously. Only one Minor Card can be active at a Realmic Transmuter at a time, so we do recommend you craft your own Realmic Transmuter Remote Control to adjust parameters without making the constant trek back and forth.

Now that you’re an expert in Nightingale Realm Cards, you can begin to explore the farthest reaches of the Faewilds in Nightingale multiplayer. We’ve also got the Nightingale system requirements so you can take in the survival game’s stunning visuals with minimal hardware strain.
