As we mentioned, getting the ghost to blow out candles in Demonologist will help you keep your Sanity levels high and, thus, likely stay alive for longer. It's also an optional objective; thus, if it's on your list of optional objectives, you'll make more money for completing it.

Here's how you get a ghost to blow out a candle:

  1. Make sure you bring along some candles with you to the match. You can purchase these in the in-game store in the safehouse prior to leaving your safehouse and going to the location.
  2. First, find the type of ghost and circle it in your journal. All players in your party will need to do so before completing optional objectives.
  3. Find the location of the ghost using your tools.
  4. Place one or more candles in the room where you've found the ghost; you'll notice a green glow. If not, move the candle.
  5. Step away from the candle you just placed to avoid losing Sanity quickly.
  6. Wait and watch. Soon, the ghost should blow out the candle, and with that, you can complete your optional objective.

These are the steps to get a ghost to blow out a candle in Demonologist. Be sure to follow the steps carefully, and you will soon be able to complete your objective and keep your Sanity high. This is one of the easier optional objectives in the game, so it's definitely worth completing, provided you remember to bring along a Candle with you before you begin your next ghost hunt.
