Seren spirit

A Seren spirit appears occasionally when the player has the grace of the elves equipped while training a gathering skill. It lasts 30 seconds before disappearing.[1] Clicking it deposits an item from the rare drop table into the player's bank. If the bank is full, the item will go to the player's inventory. If the inventory is full, the item will be dropped onto the ground. Clicking the spirit does not interrupt the player's current skilling action. Having an active Spirit attraction potion while the spirit spawns will automatically collect the spirit.

When a spirit appears, a message says:
A Seren spirit appears, interested in your actions.
When a spirit appears with an active spirit attraction potion the folowing message appears instead:
A Seren spirit appears. Your spirit attraction potion allows you to catch it as it spawns.
After it is captured, the following message appears:
The Seren spirit gifts you : [quantity] x [item]
If the item is able to be placed in the bank, the following message appears: The gift is sent to your bank.

If the item is unable to be placed in the bank, it instead appears in the player's inventory, along with the following message:
The gift appears in your inventory.

If the player does not capture the spirit before it vanishes, the following message appears:
The seren spirit disappears before you could receive a gift from it.

Update history[edit | edit source]

This information has been compiled as part of the update history project. Some updates may not be included - see here for how to help out!
  • update 19 April 2022 (Update):
    • The red font used in warning messages has been changed to a lighter colour, as the darkness often contrasted poorly with the game world.
  • patch 19 August 2019 (Update):
    • A grammatical error when a Seren Spirit disappears has been resolved.
  • patch 1 April 2019 (Update):
    • The Seren Spirit now has a jingle when it appears, which can be heard if Sound Effects are turned on, making it more noticeable. There's still the existing sound when the spirit is present, located under ambient sounds, but you'll now get a Sound Effect when it spawns as there previously wasn't one.
    • A timerbar will now appear above a Seren Spirit when one spawns.
    • A message will appear if a Seren Spirit despawns before you could claim its reward.
  • patch 7 January 2019 (Update):
    • Seren Spirits will now be visible when sharing a tile with other actors.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Seren spirits have an identical appearance to Seren in her shattered form within the Tower of Voices, prior to being reformed during quest The Light Within.
  • Initially, Seren spirits were visible to all nearby players when spawned. This was unintentional and was hotfixed on the day of release.
  • If there are many players and/or familiars in the area where a seren spirit spawns, the player will be unable to obtain the spirit due to the large number of entities in the area.
  • If an interface is open when a spirit is to spawn (such as gathering produce at player-owned farm), it is possible to have multiple spirits spawn at the same time.
