I never use the lantern. Totally unneeded with the 'movie lighting' nights.

It only really bothers me out at sea that things aren't dark enough though.

For nights without any moonlight and thunder storms it's pitch black (Plus caves). Especially with great graphics. I don't use the lantern often, but when I do use it, I need it. 

That's pretty much my take on it, too.  I've adjusted my graphics for a decent daytime look, and my normal nights are dark, but seeable. 

Half the time when I get a lantern, it expires before I get a chance to use it anyhow  9_9

I think lanterns are a cool feature, simply not as essential as the game sometimes makes it out to be. I personally change my gamma/contrast settings with each day/night cycle, it's not as tedious as it may sound, especially once it becomes muscle memory.

It's also unnecessarily overcomplicated just like everything else in this game, with having a decay timer(3 days or 3 hours or something) and needing oil. But meh, who cares!

I tend to play on the darkest pitch black settings possible, just for fun (lowest gamma, highest contrast) so I get that diablo 2 radial lantern effect at night. default settings there is definitely no need for lantern except for immersion.
