    Short Description

    Find the Tree of Wisdom in Gloamwood.


    So you are on a scavenger hunt eh, Ascended? Well it just may be that I have a task for you. Indeed I do! Search Gloamwood for the Tree of Wisdom. I know, I know... search a forest for a tree, but this isn't just any tree, Ascended. Trust me, find it and you will see. Goblins have tried to scratch runes into its bark but the tree is too clever for that! It eludes them, so the stupid goblins have to content themselves with stones instead.

    Completion Text

    Congratulations, you have completed a part of the Scavenger Hunt! Here is your reward.

    This is a subquest of The Little Scavenger Hunt, Part 1.

    Speak to Asache the Woodsman at (4062, 2770) on the West Deepwood Trail (just inside Gloamwood from Scarlet Gorge) to receive this quest.

    "Search Gloamwood for the Tree of Wisdom. I know, I know... search a forest for a tree, but this isn't just any tree, Ascended. Trust me, find it and you will see."

    Unlike Asache's hint, nothing in particular stands out about this tree amongst so many others in the forest. In 2013 it was reported to look greyish-silver.

    • The tree will highlight if moused over, and that is likely the best method for finding it.
    • On PTS, the tree can appear in ~20 different places and will stay in one place for 5 minutes (or until collected).
    • On live, one of the places the tree is spawning at is the Standing Stones (around 4938, 2726). It remains for a short time after it is interacted with, then another tree "becomes" the tree.

    From the hints, it is not hard: goblins and stones. So, just go around the Standing Stones at 4950, 2725 and keep circling the screen watching the mouse to become a "hand". Then go there and click it, that simple.

    The tree does look different.
    There is an obvious greyish tone to the tree (almost silvery). Secondly, it seemed to only cover the lower portion of the tree.
    I found my tree @ [4938, 2726]
    Another player and I both got the same tree at the same time.

    Saobel: 7-26-13 Wow, Friday at 7:40 a.m. I found this so called tree at those coordinates (4938, 2726). The night before I must have looked for 1 hour with no luck! Thank you!

    I found one at 3437,1834 and it respawned within a couple minutes for my friend to collect as well in the same spot.

    Tree located at the eastern entrance to the Standing Stones; a mid sized tree with a noticeably gnarled trunk whereas all the others are straight, however, in the gloom it is easy to miss!
