Glimmer is a category of projectile modifier spells each of which add colour to your projectiles, and reduce the cast delay by 0.13s. Their primary purpose is aesthetic, although an argument can be made for the Invisible Spell glimmer which can be used to improve performance, as it prevents spells from creating excessive amounts of particles. It also subtracts screenshake amount from the active shot state if any was added by earlier spells. The reducing of cast delay can also be used to create good rapid fire wands using spells that add cast delay.

The spells can be unlocked by taking one of the Emerald Tablets (must be one found beside an Orb of True Knowledge) over to the Alchemist's hut located at the right-hand edge of the Lake. Throw the tablet into the hut, and enter the portal that appears there. The portal leads to a small room directly below, which if entered via the portal, will contain an Experimental Wand, a selection of Glimmer spells, and a Kadotettu alkemisti. The room also allows wand-editing within, on the first visit.


Some spells add a screen shaking effect when cast (the overall intensity of which can be configured in Noita's settings). Glimmer is the only spell that reduces this effect. The reduction is equivalent to the screen shaking added by Magic Bolt, or 1/8th of that added by Black Hole. Divide By can be used to copy this effect if needed.

Note: The running total of screenshake intensity is capped to a minimum of 0 each time it is reduced. Thus, the order in which modifiers appear on your wand may be important if you are trying to remove the effect using Glimmer - they need to come after it is added.
