Other uses[]


  • The snowberry is modeled after the European Holly (Ilex Aquifolium), a plant widely used for its magical properties by Celtic Druids. Its berries are considered poisonous in larger doses, but the plant was used for animal fodder throughout Medieval times.
  • Snowberries are one of the few alchemical ingredients that only have positive effects.
