Mourning Tree Philostratus

Mourning Tree Philostratus is a Mourning Tree summoned to fight for you. They aren’t very strong, but when you have many they are effective. They will automatically follow you once you summon them, however, only on land. They cannot move in the water. In order to summon the Mourning 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.

Mourning Tree Philostratus have a small aura to heal other summoned Philostratus. This effect is in addition to the aura from a player with Warden Knowledge 3.

Like all Philostratus, Mourning 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. Trees can be destroyed in order to make room for other minions.
