Mallowsweet Leaves and Merlin’s Trials

The purpose of Mallowsweet is not immediately clear as it is not a potion ingredient nor a combat ready magical plant. When heading to Lower Hogsfield for the first time, players will encounter Nora Treadwell, a historian researching Merlin.

Helping her unlock the secrets of the Merlin Trial she has camped around will yield 5 Mallowsweet Leaves, one of which you use during the quest. One bundle is needed to activate each Merlin Trial, resulting in the player needing at least 95 uses of the plant to complete them all. 

While Mallowsweet is easy enough to obtain, the large amounts needed to complete all Merlin Trials can be a costly endeavor. Purchasing the amount needed will cost 950 Galleons, while investing in the seeds costs 200 Galleons and time for the plant to grow. Finding the herb in the Forbidden Forest can aid the player in beefing up their stockpile of it for later use.
