Strategy

You can either avoid the monsters and search the shining points, or kill the monsters first and search the points after, or do both at the same time, it doesn't matter. The battle will end once you find the muskmallow.

As far as Arivess knows, the muskmallow will always be in the last point you search.

Be careful of the law — critical hits count as knockbacks, and you can't control them. The best way to ensure you follow this law is to make sure you hit things against something else, or in a hollow, so that they can't be knocked back.

On a different note, dreamhares (and others in its family) are weak against fire. Feel free to roast them.

Script

Baknamy: Rnak… Rnak…

Player: Monsters…
Why am I not surprised?
Looks like this herb hunt won’t be a walk in the park.

Baknamy: Rnaak!

Player: Not gonna get any help from him. Better start looking.
It’s gotta be in one of these clumps of grass…
Only one way to find out!

—-

[You search the stand of grass…
…and find a sprig of touch-me-not!
Your hands start to itch.]

[You search the stand of grass…
…and find a steaming pile of wolf dung!
Your hands smell…unpleasant.]

[You search the stand of grass…
…and find a clump of wild slimeroot!
Thick goo covers your hands.]

[You search the stand of grass…
…and find a muskmallow!]

Player: This is what we came for.
A bitter weed, but the apothecaries would have it no other way.
