Yarrow is a plant with a long stem, branching towards the top into a cluster of small white or pink flowers.

This is a small pile of yarrow, about three stalks.

Uses

Yarrow can be used as follows:

Fresh yarrow weighs 1/9 for 10 stalks or 5/9 lb for every handful of 50 stalks.

Once preserved yarrow weighs much less, 1/9 lb for 140 stalks. This is 1/10 the original weight after rounding.

One stalk of yarrow (fresh or dried) gives 1 handful of ground yarrow.

Poison

Yarrow is a poison if ingested directly.

After eating at least 20 stalks of yarrow and waiting 2 minutes, it gives temporary stat penalty of -5 constitution and -2 dexterity as well as regularly draining 10% of your remaining health points at intervals of 30 to 60 seconds.

Eating more yarrow does not make you sick faster and dried yarrow doesn't seem to change anything either.

It can be cured with antidote tea.

If left untreated it will last 20 minutes.

Locations

Yarrow can be found in the following locations:
