Spirit Tree (Farming)

A Spirit Tree can be grown by players from a spirit seed in one of the spirit tree patches which can be found in:

Players can unlock the ability to grow a total of four spirit trees:

  • Players can grow up to one spirit tree once they reach level 83 in the Farming skill.
  • A second tree may be planted at level 86, after completing The Prisoner of Glouphrie.
  • After completing both The Prisoner of Glouphrie and Plague's End, and with a Farming level of 89, the player can speak to Glouron in the elven city of Prifddinas.
  • A fourth tree may be planted at level 114 with Apprentice Farmer rank (4,000 reputation) at the Farming Guild.

It is not possible to move a spirit tree without having to replant it.

As well as the spirit tree being a destination, it can also be considered an entrance to the spirit tree network.

5 The spirit tree base has widened showing some roots, and the leaves have morphed into a small canopy. Two small branches have appeared on either side of the trunk. Click for a larger image
6 The spirit tree has grown wider in girth but is still the same height as before. The base is larger as well. Click for a larger image
7 The spirit tree has grown larger in all respects. The trunk is more warped towards the west, and the roots are more visible. Click for a larger image
8 The spirit tree is larger in all respects. The trunk has grown in a 'S' shape. Click for a larger image

Boosting[edit | edit source]

Spirit trees cannot be grown by using the Assist System. However, a player is able to plant up to one tree using Farming boosts, as early as level 77 with a spicy stew, which can boost 6 levels (once the appropriate quest has been completed). With the unpredictable nature of spicy stews it is recommended instead to use a pork pie, which can boost 5 levels, at level 78. A similarly reliable method would be to wait until level 79, and then use a stranger plant. Players with a Farming level of 80 may also use garden pies for a boost of 3 levels. The Farming requirement for two trees can also be achieved with boosts. The third spirit tree level requirement is not boostable. Players also need to have access to Prifddinas. The fourth spirit tree level requirement can be boosted.

A relevant skill boost is only required when planting the Spirit sapling in the tree patch. Using supreme growth potions and checking health can be done without boosting. The second and fourth seeds can be planted in a plant pot after level 83 without boosting to their respective required levels to plant in the patches. For the Family Spirit Tree achievement, talking to Glouron after checking 4 trees health does not require a skill boost either.

Once fully grown and the health of the tree(s) checked, spirit tree(s) will appear as an option to travel to from other spirit trees.
