It is, of course, okay to utilize darkness to your advantage. However, there's a certain distinction you should make yourself aware. You overstep the line when you start skipping hours of grind and very powerful mobs to get ahold of artifacts or powerful resources where other people would have needed teams or _very powerful_ characters.
We are aware that there are things that are not ideal about the mage guild, structure, and progressing, but that is no excuse for switching off your brains. Yes, darkness gives you some power and it is part of your 'toolkit' and you should use it. Just try to think things through and consider for yourself. Warning signs, in my eyes, are 'am I skipping several hours of grind?'.
Or just remove darkness.

Thats 300ml x 4 of oil and that usually lasted about 20-30 mins... much longer than you typically need it for. or gives you enough time to refill. not even that much weight!
Since this is an ongoing discussion...
NPC's just need to react better/at all when somebody enters the room with darkness
