This tome spawns a stationary healing mushroom wherever your cursor is, which heals 75 health every second (for a total of 225 HP). It is a uniquely useful tome for these reasons:
You can ‘pre-cast’ your heals, which makes it more reliable for other players. With a traditional tome, players are left in the dark for when you’ll actually heal. With a mushroom, they know its there.
This tome does not scale with player count; it will always heal 75 HP per player. Instead, each mushroom can only heal 15 players at a time. Mushrooms tend to prioritize players with the least HP.
In exchange, this tome comes with a number of negatives. The healing area is rather small, which can make this tome difficult to use against mobile bosses. It is expensive on MP, and the healing isn’t boosted by WisMod.
Regardless, this is a very reliable support tome. It’s useful for groups both small and large.
The Healing Shroom is marked on the minimap by a dark red dot ( ) and has the following sprite:
This tome initially had a bug in which it did not heal sorcerers. This was fixed in Patch X.33.1.0 (May 2020).
Before Exalt Version 184.108.40.206 (July 2020), this item had the following sprite:
Before Exalt Version 220.127.116.11 (Sep 2020), this item had a heal of 165 HP. In spite of this nerf, the Tome of Mushroom Tribes jumped from being considered one of the worst to one of the best support tomes at the time (as this update also nerfed other tomes via player HP scaling).
Before Exalt Version 18.104.22.168 (Mar 2023), this item had a heal of 120 HP, max targets of 10, and MP cost of 85, and did not give the Healing status.
This item is coloquially referred to as “Fungal Tome”.
