— In-game description

Kudzu is a legendary longbow crafted in the Mystic Forge.


Mystic Forge
Output qty.

Contained in[edit]


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.

  • Pink leaves and sparkles swirl around forearms.
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


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.
