Troll thistle is a quest item used in the Eadgar's Ruse quest. It can be obtained by picking it in any of the grass areas in Trollheim near the cave where Eadgar lives. Note that every time the thistle is picked, it spawns in a different grass patch.
The player can use the thistle on a fire to dry it out, turning it into a dried thistle. This can then be crushed in a pestle and mortar to make ground thistle, which can be used with an unfinished ranarr potion to make a troll potion.
If the thistle is dropped, it will disappear and the player receives a message in their chatbox saying "The Troll Thistle withers away as soon as it hits the ground."
Locations[edit | edit source]
Troll thistle can be found in one of 5 spawn locations near Eadgar. These spawns will always be very close to the top of the mountain, so don't stray too far from Eadgar's hideout. The thistle respawns randomly back to one of the other 4 locations when it is picked. 3 of the locations are just southwest, south, and southeast of Eadgar's hideout on the top plateau. The other 2 are slightly farther away, and are directly south and southeast of the hideout in the second ring outside of the top plateau.
