Whether you’re looking to ascend the mysterious Wanderer and the sunny and enthusiastic Collei or just in it for the fun of collecting materials, knowing how to use and farm Rukkashava mushrooms is an invaluable skill for any Traveler. Lucky for you, today’s Forest Patrol Route has a large concentration of them! Put on your Forest Ranger hat, Traveler, and let’s get ready.
Here’s how you can farm Rukkashava Mushrooms
They’re a lot easier to hunt if you know where to look, so before we set out, let me acquaint you with this Local Specialty from Sumeru. Rukkashava mushrooms are fungi growing primarily on trees deep within the rainforest. They have a blue colour and develop many layers. These mushrooms are tricky to find because they mostly grow in high places, escaping your line of sight. Experienced Travelers survey locations first from a high waypoint.
Tighnari’s Passive, Encyclopedic Knowledge, which displays the location of Sumeru’s local resources in the mini-map, also helps big time. Bring him out if you have him, and let’s go to our first spot.
Most Rukkashava mushrooms in the forest’s northern part are under the giant trees’ blue mushroom-like caps. Unlock the four-leaf sigils in the area so you can glide from tree to tree faster. The southern cluster is mainly on the ground and is easy to pick up. Just be careful because there’s a mob of Electro Slimes and an Electro Abyss Mage guarding the place.
Look for the cave entrance located near the Ruin Golem. Devantaka’s Rukkashava mushrooms are all underground, and you can find them sitting in the giant tree branches linking the cave’s rock formations. Convenient four-leaf sigils are scattered in this cave, making for a smooth run.
Apam Woods’ north-western and eastern clusters are located in towering tree trunks. Start from the highest branch and glide down slowly while you look for more mushrooms. The southwest cluster is underground and can be accessed through a hidden cave entrance near the Tower of Abject Pride domain.
Vanarana’s mushrooms are too far apart, and it’s best to farm the first three locations every 48 hours unless you’re just missing the last bunch for ascension. Teleport to the east waypoint and climb up the hollowed log to find two mushrooms. Face west, and you’ll find a cave entrance. Follow the trail, and you’ll find one more near the end. There’s also one directly below the Jadeplume Terrorshroom’s platform.
Rukkashava Mushroom shops
You can also visit Aramani from Varanara and Ashpazi from Gandharva Ville to buy Rukkashava Mushrooms for 1,000 Mora each. Their stocks refresh every three days, and you can buy five from each of them.
