The Red Iris Flower is a trophy that is found on the ground rather than dropping from a foe. They can be found in all pre-Searing Ascalon explorable areas (except the Catacombs), and in several Eye of the North explorable areas.

Acquisition[edit]

Bug Bug. Three of the above zones sometimes spawn irises in unreachable locations:
  • Lakeside County: the iris near the stage sometimes spawns behind the portal to The Northlands;
  • Lakeside County: more rarely, the Ashford Village iris might spawn inside a rock;
  • Green Hills: an iris infrequently spawns inside a tree or behind The Barradin Estate portal.

Usage[edit]

Pre-Searing Ascalon[edit]

Eye of the North[edit]

Before completion of The Missing Vanguard, if you enter the Hall of Monuments while holding this item, Gwen says "I can't believe you held onto that for so long. But with the Ebon Vanguard missing, my own past must be put aside for now. We'll have time for this matter after my friends are rescued."

After completion of The Missing Vanguard, if you speak to Gwen with a flower in your inventory she will give you the quest Fire and Pain.

Oggy wants a single Iris to aid his courtship of Jezza.

Notes[edit]

  • The Red Iris Flower is the only trophy that is found on the ground (rather than dropping from a foe) and cannot be salvaged.
  • The same number of flowers will spawn each time your party enters a particular zone and the locations are not completely random (the specific locations are noted above).
  • This item, along with the rest of Gwen's memorabilia (Preserved Red Iris Flower, Tapestry Shred, Tattered Girl's Cape, and the Small Girl's Cape) can be used once per character to trigger Fire and Pain; the quest cannot be repeated.
Anomaly Anomaly. Before being picked up, the flowers do not have the usual shimmer effect shown by most "treasure"/dropped items. However, if you drop one, they show that effect.
