Dark Souls 2: How to Find Secret Magical Repair Tree
Magical Repair Tree In Dark Souls 2
In Dark Souls 2, weapons will eventually become damaged and will break. There is only so much durability a given weapon has. In the Crown of the Sunken King DLC, there is a mysterious hidden secret that is known as the magical repair tree. The magical repair tree can repair the players weapons! This can be very useful in Dark Souls 2! The main ways weapons are usually repaired in the game is by resting at a Bonfire or going to a blacksmith. Note that although the magical repair tree repairs damaged weapons, it will not heal broken items.
Where is the Magical Repair Tree?
In order to find the Magical Repair tree, you must go to the tower that leads up to the second Shulva Bonfire in Sanctum city. The tree is in a cave nearby, but it cannot be accessed initially. Look for red-eyed statues that can be seen in the distant cave wall. Upon careful observation, there is actually a pillar in between one of the red-eyed statues. It is on the right side. Shoot this pillar and it will make a bridge ascend from below, allowing you to cross over to the caverns nearby.
There will be several crab enemies that are guarding the magical repair tree in Dark Souls 2. These enemies are vulnerable in the lower part of their bodies. You must shoot them from a distance by manually aiming at them. Once the poison shell crabs are destroyed, proceed forward until you see the monumental enigmatic magical repair tree.
Attacking the tree with melee has no effect. The ring of whispers also does nothing to it. But there are a couple of items and a "notched whipped." Equip the notched whip. Hit the tree with the whip and it will react. The magical repair tree will suddenly glow and you will also glow. All of your weapons are now repaired!
Future DLC for Dark Souls 2
Crown of the Sunken King is the first of three DLCs. The next two DLC will be Crown of the Old Iron King & Crown of the Ivory King.
Although the magical repair tree is an interesting secret, since it does not repair broken items it is somewhat disappointing. Dark Souls 2 is regarded as a very difficult role playing game compared to other games. It would have been nice if the tree would have also completely healed weapons that were broken completely. But it's still useful.
The next DLC content for Dark Souls 2 will probably have more secrets for players to discover like this one.
