    i can replicate this by putting my lord marshall helm on and taking it off. the puddle of light stays where i removed it afterwards. this also matches the color of the spot i found in tenebris.

    testing with a virtue cloak leaves the same blue behind as @Hornpipe saw.

    For me - it was the Lord British Helmet - which is a source of light.

    However - in Brightbone Pass - I saw circles of light in places I hadn't been to yet. So either it's somebody else, and/or other things are happening as well.

    Also - taking equipment on and off (to leave behind these circles) is not that common an occurrence for me - unless this also happens when switching decks that would swap in different equipment?

    You guys are right - it is the Virtue Cloak and other special items that emit light (certain helms). You can see other players 'light spots' even when they have left the scene.
    Unequipping, dying, and teleporting seem to all affect these imprints but the only way I can repro 100% of the time is by unequipping it. The light will remain on the surface nearby.
    @Hornpipe

    While most of these spots will be the same in saturation (helm lights) virtue blue glows are going to vary based on that avatar's virtue.
    I'm afraid I left blue spots all over the place (including Novia) over the weekend :eek:
