— In-game description

Kudzu is a legendary longbow crafted in the Mystic Forge.


Mystic Forge
Output qty.

Contained in


Kudzu is a green longbow covered in flowers. Its riser consists of a dryad carrying a golden spear with a thistle texture overlay that pulses gold. While drawn the bow sheds petals.

Critical hit effects
  • Critical strikes while wielding Kudzu will cause flowers and leaves to blossom on your target(s).
Draw/Stow effects
  • A birdsong is heard when drawing/stowing the bow.
  • A patch of grass and flowers appears at feet before fading, similar to the footfall effect but larger.
  • The user leaves behind footprints of flowers and grass.
Skill effects
  • A birdsong is heard upon firing the bow.
  • Default projectiles are replaced with the spear the dryad is holding, which also leaves flower petals in its path.
    • Some downed skills such as Throw Dirt are included.
  • Pink leaves and sparkles swirl around fore-arms.


There is a bug where Kudzu's projectiles will become other Kudzus, making it appear as though you are firing copies of the longbow instead of the normal projectiles.

  • With 3rd of September 2013 update, bowstring was repaired and projectiles were adjusted.
  • Kudzu is a vine-plant native to southern Japan and south east China. It is also very invasive, hard to kill and has taken over much of the southern United States.
  • Heart Of Thorns added new graphics to the bow (leaves and vines on drawing and forearm effect.)
  • The Rising Flames update replaced the normal black bowstring with a golden one.
