Sentient Roots are the remains of the sentient plants that populate the island of Istan. It is said that these roots have extraordinary healing properties when ground into a poultice or tea, but the inherent danger in harvesting them makes experimentation difficult.

Notes[edit]

  • The collector Adhitok trades 3 Sentient Roots for a Salvage Kit that cost 40 Gold when purchased from a merchant. The kit has 10 uses and the cost per use is 4 Gold. This provides a return that is 333.33% greater than just selling the trophies by themselves.
