The spyglass is an item that can be used for zooming in on specific locations.
|Amethyst Shard +
Spyglasses are used to zoom in on a specific location in the player's field of view (FOV). The spyglass changes the FOV to 1⁄10 of the FOV set in options. By default, FOV is set to 70, resulting in a FOV of 7 through the spyglass. FOV can be set from 30 to 110, so a range from 3 to 11 FOV through the spyglass is possible.
The player is slowed down while watching through the spyglass. When the player uses spyglass continuously for 1 minute (1200 game ticks), the interface will be closed automatically.
