This foot-long, needle-shaped thorn is wrapped in red cord and can be fixed to a belt. It is a thorn from the world tree, which Melora tends to and protects in her divine realm of Arvandor. Lore would suggest that the tree is large enough to hold the whole of the world in its branches, and that its seeds are the beginnings of all life in the multiverse.

With this single item, Melora has entrusted its wielder with the power of nature itself. It allows one to balance both the serenity and fury of nature, becoming one with the most primal of beasts.
