'Thistles' is basic druid spell that uses your knowledge of plants
to force roots and seeds beneath a target to quickly sprout inert spiny
growths that pierce and slash an enemy. These can reach up fast and high
enough to strike airborne targets. The growths are brittle and quickly
break apart, making them useless for barricades or restraints, unlike the
living vines used in more advanced phytomancy.
When out of reach of solid ground, you can use nuts, seeds, or berries
that have been collected with the 'forage' or 'gather' commands in
order to cast the spell. Simply have the seeds, nuts, or berries in
your inventory when you cast the spell on an enemy. The spell will use
them automatically. The hurled material sprouts into a hollow, spiny ball
that resembles the head of a thistle, which shatters on impact.
If you don't have any collected nuts or berries, you can also use
collected acorns. These will be automatically used if you have any.
Some of the thorny growths break off and cling to the target for a
short time, hampering their regeneration. Entangling roots can latch
onto these, making it more difficult for the target to avoid them.
While the spell is called thistles, any sort of seed or plants can be
used, from trees to cacti. Dormant seeds can even be found frozen in
ice or on barren rock, while roots can penetrate deep underground.
