Notes Edit

Bug icon Bug! An additional Spindleweed may be available during Act 2 and Act 3 even if you have collected them all. It is advised to ignore the crafting resource as buying it may glitch the Supplier achievement. (Tested on Xbox, the achievement seems to operate on a crafting resource counter. When the Spindleweed was purchased from the Black Emporium the achievement unlocked with one actual in-game crafting resource remaining.)

Background Edit

It is an old country saying that spindleweed grows best for the sorrowful. Verdant spindleweed in a household's garden has often brought neighbors offering consolation, usually without even asking what might be wrong.

This originates from the plant's use as a seasoning for dishes meant to speed the recovery of the infirm. A person who grows much of it is likely caring for the fatally ill.
