Alerce at a Glance
Material Type Woods
Colors White
Rarity Quest-Only
Cultural Relevance
Required for Alterations Yes

Though extremely large and fast growing, the alerce tree is most notable not for either of these properties, nor for the wood of the tree itself, which is crumbly once dried, but instead for its unique multi-layered bark and the inhospitable terrain in which it is found. Growing only on ledges within the inner rims of volcanoes, the alerce tree adapts to changes in volcanic activity by integrating minerals into its bark, forming richly colored and remarkably dense plates. Once harvested, the bark is then processed and sold as simply 'alerce'. More like stone than wood, alerce is most often used for fancy household items and decorations. The bark plates have been found in nearly every color imaginable, though pure white alerce is the most rare and valuable.

Previously, the existence of these trees was a secret kept by House Turmar.
