This is consumed upon use. The buff lasts for 1 hour.

HUGE IMPORTANT NOTE
IF YOU DIE IN THE SHADOW REALM, THIS ITEM STOPS DROPPING. GO STRAIGHT TO EHT TREE AND THE KNIFE WILL BE THERE FOR YOU!
Been doing this at lvl 91 and farmed that lantern for over 10 mobs till I gave up and cehcked the tree out of curiosity and there it was...
wasted time.. but don´t make my mistake!
Something I noticed, the Lantern does not seem to drop unless you have already burned the spirit effigy at Mother Om’ra's grave.
I base this off the following: 80 voidtwisters slain with no drops prior to burning the effigy, with one slain with a drop after.
Good luck fellow S.T.A.L.K.E.R.s
If you are doing this at a low level (92-94), I would suggest entering the village using camo, head strait back to the first Voidtwisters. There is a small house on a hill to the right. A single Voidtwister and his wolf are there. Go to the side of the house and trap the Voidtwister, then kill the wolf first. If you need to, burn all your CDs on the wolf before the trap ends. Once you can fight the Voidtwister without his wolf it becomes a rather simple tank and spank, just keep your pet mended. This was by far the hardest step in the chain at level 93.

How to tame Gara the Spirit Beast
If you had burned the effigy but the void lantern is not dropping, here is why:
You must burn the effigy and then after Xan kills Gara, you must then go over and kill 1 Shadowmoon Voidtwister. If you ask a GM (like my wife did) he/she will tell you that it is a rare drop and is not 100% drop rate. As I soon discovered, this is only true if a) you aren't a hunter or
b) you have logged out, gotten disconnected, etc. after burning the effigy.
If you are in the b camp, you will need to go and create another effigy, burn it, watch the scene again, and then go kill a Voidtwister.
I know this will work if you are stuck. It saved my wife from having to spend two more hours of farming.
Happy hunting :D
So... weird thing.
Blood elf death knight, just flying around the Pillars of Fate to kill Soul-Twister Torek. I find a rare, Malgosh Shadowkeeper, who drops one of these.
Now, according to the rest of the page, since I have never encountered Gara (until I used the Voidblade and now s/he's following me), this shouldn't be possible. Not sure what to think there.
Perhaps a change was made that not only makes this an easier drop for Hunters on the quest, but now drops for all?
Dropped for this Mage. I was able to use, travel to tree and retrieve the dagger, have Gara join me, kill a few Void Callers, have Xan appear and dispose of him. Mother Om'ra did appear, display dialog and Gara became tamable (turned neutral).
Although attackable, Gara can only be reduced to 1 HP. Was forced to walk away to drop combat and fly away from the area.
Event is repeatable, assuming you still have the Void Lantern buff.
It's have so cool "shadow priest" visual effect :P worth to get but bad that its unique! :/
