The blisterwood tree is a tree hidden in the Arboretum in Darkmeyer that the vampyres fear. They were once found all over Morytania, but following the vampyres' conquest of Darkmeyer, they began eradicating all of the blisterwood trees. This campaign was largely successful, but inexplicably, a blisterwood tree began to grow in a crack in one of Darkmeyer's buildings. The vampyres attempted to destroy this tree, but found that their methods had little effect on it. As an alternative, Lord Lowerniel Drakan had an arboretum built around the tree, and kept it in poor health.
The Blisterwood Tree features in the quest The Branches of Darkmeyer, where the player restores its health, then harvests logs from the tree and creates weapons with which to kill Vanstrom Klause.
It is believed that Queen Efaritay created the tree as a means of destroying the vampyres, making it unkillable and the greatest threat towards the vampyres and vyrewatch.
Upon first chopping this tree, you obtain 3 blisterwood logs. Partial completion of The Branches of Darkmeyer unlocks the ability for you to fletch each log into one of the following:
After partial completion of The Lord of Vampyrium, you gain the ability to fletch blisterwood logs into the following:
All of them have tier 70 accuracy and damage rating, and can be used to damage vampyres.
After the initial cut, players can chop the tree to obtain more logs. Eventually the tree will have to repair itself (similar to a normal tree falling over). The tree respawns about as fast as a regular or oak tree and provides multiple logs per "session" just like oak trees and better.
- ^ Number of logs obtained per successful action.
