Dusk Tree Philostratus

Dusk Tree Philostratus is a Dusk Tree summoned to fight for you. They will automatically follow you once you summon them, however, only on land. They cannot move in the water. In order to summon the Dusk Tree Philostratus, you must have level 1 of the skill Warden Knowledge. Then select the tree and press “Summon Philostratus.” Once you summon them, they will follow you unless you travel more than several flag lengths away. If you are summoning Philostratuses, it is a good idea to have Warden Knowledge 3 as well. With the healing aura, Philostratuses can hold their own with most monsters.

Dusk Tree Philostratus have a 15% chance of inflicting Poison with each attack it makes similar to weapons infused with Poison Metal. They are also not immune to the passive poison effect when standing next to Dusk Trees.

Like all Philostratus, Dusk Tree Philostratus will follow you onto a visited Buoy, but will not fight on water. Even if they do not fight on water, summoned Philostratus are still useful to soak up damage that would have otherwise been dealt to you instead, but you must lure monsters to the Buoy itself as your animated trees will not move away from it.

All Philostratus have a chance of dropping one Wood when killed. They can be destroyed in order for you to summon another form of tree or minion.
