A woody plant. It looks dry enough to be easily set on fire, and its foliage is not very dense, permitting missiles to pass through it. However, it is firmly rooted, and requires much effort to destroy.

“And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed.”
-KJV Bible, Exodus 3:2.

Useful Info

Bushes are ridiculously tough plants that require a severe beating to uproot. If you absolutely must destroy a bush, hitting it with a lightning bolt or one of the stronger Fire Magic spells will ignite it, destroying it relatively quickly. Just be sure to keep away from the thing until the fire goes out, as it may lash out at adjacent empty spaces/plants/players. Even so, this is rare enough that fires generally don't get out of control; at most you'll see it spread a couple times before petering out.

You may shoot or cast through bushes; they only obscure LOS when looking through two or more. They are often found around Fedhas' altars.

Tips & Tricks

  • You can use bushes as cover and fire through them, but remember that ranged enemies can fire through as well.
  • If a bush is standing on top of an item you want, it's simplest just to use Apportation to get it out from underneath without taking the time to destroy the bush.
