    Actually mistletoe does in fact grow in the wild. There are 3 plants in the cemetary just outside the pellar's hut. There is another plant in the stone rings on Fyke Island, I gather in those areas in the early game. To me it appears that mistletoe is found primarily in grave/cemetary areas. There is quite a bit scattered across Skellige.

    Allspice has never grown natively in the Witcher games, it has always been a random drop or purchased item. Green Mold is usually found in caves/sewers, at least it was in the previous games, but I can't recall having found any in any of my Witcher 3 playthroughs to date. Bison Grass and Ergot Seeds can be purchased from herbalists or received as a rare random drop from chests/monsters. Since they are random, then no, there isn't a specific chest location or monster I have found; however, the game's randomizer appears to be set to increase the probability of a drop in the Skellige region over the Velen/Novigrad regions.

    I did not know mistletoe grew in the wild, so thank you as I have not stumbled across it growing.

    So, mistletoe, ergot seeds etc can't be picked in the wild..?
  • Venisia Gonzalez
    Featured Columnist
    Mistletoe can be purchased or looted. I have found it once it one spot in Skellige but haven't since to claim it's "really" there.

    Ergot seeds are purchased or dropped from specific monsters (which I cannot remember which).

    I stand corrected. Apparently mistletoe does grow in the wild according to another player. I have not stumbled across it myself but now I will venture out in search to verify this.

    According to

    USELESS. If there aren't actual map locations this info is 100% pointless.
