Hmm in order to get Blisterwood into the hands of humans or a potential human liberation army I was thinking can't we just make a copy of the Blisterwood tree? Vanescula says we can't get a seed but she could be lying, what if there is a way?

First option is the tower of life as someone suggested to me. We would need to get a sample of the tree's dna and use it with something to recreate a seed for the tree. Perhaps it could even be used in combination with a cactus, who knows?

Second option of making a copy of the Blisterwood tree is if we can somehow acquire the mirror elder artefact, we use it to clone another Blisterwood tree in say Misthalin or wherever.

Through either of these methods we would give humans unlimited access to Blisterwood weapons and allow mass production. This will allow humans to kill vampyres. Hopefully deliver them into the hands of Morytania's human inhabitants.

It doesn't really matter. Nobody is strong enough to wield them. Now if the Barrows were equipped with them back in the day, it could have been game changing. But now? Useless. Runescape doesn't need a hero...it needs a villain. An all encompassing force of evil that will remain ever-threatening and use chaos to make the peoples of Gielinor tolerate each other, grow strong together, and fight side by side against this evil. I am that villain.

The trees were said to be created by Queen Efaritay, an icyene, so perhaps, if we go to their homeworld New Domina, we may find seeds to destroy them? Perhaps, Saradomin will help us make more. or maybe the queen left some journal on how to create moar trees. I worship Mah, for she is mah homegirl! The correct adjective for Mah's followers are: Mahomies, Mah-homeboys, or Mah-homegirls.

There is a relatively simple way to grow a tree without a seed. Take a cutting from the parent tree. Take that cutting and place it into a little container filled with enough water to cover the cut end. Add a liquid source of nutrients to the water on a regular basis (not necessary, but raises the chance of success). Once the cutting grows enough of a root system, transplant it into a pot with soil. Once this grows strong enough, treat it as you would any sapling.

Edit: Theory time. The tree does not produce seeds, because that is not how it reproduces. Some trees (ex: sumac), spread by growing new trees off of the root system of the parent tree. As the vampyres have the tree trapped within a building with an apparently solid foundation, the tree has been prevented from making more. Crack the foundation, and the tree spreads on its own.

Do we need to?

Veliaf: Hey, nice polearm, can you make me one of those? Actually, make like 10, one for each of us.

Me: Mkay.

Vampyre1: Yo, isn't that the guy that killed Vanstrom?!
Vampyre2: Yes, yes it is, Billy. Just lay low and don't say anything, and maybe you won't wind up like those poor Falador guardsmen.
Vampyre1: But he's literally chopped up the entire tree and is carting it off in a caravan of pack yaks! Do you think he's going to sell it to the Myreque?
Vampyre2: Naw, man, that guy is full-blood vampyre, I've known him for like 3 hours. He's legit.

The idea with the cactus is the spines would be harvestable and craftable. Maybe even a potion that could give us the required edge, rather than use Blisterwood weapons

So you'd take a Blisterwood tree sprig and a potted cactus or seed to the tree of life and produce the hybrid. An almost ....wait this is a very Invention style thing that would work nicely for farming/crafting/herblore, wouldn't it?

There is a potion that actually prove useful, if we are creative enough. Does anybody remember the Guthix Rest potion and what it does?

While not immensely strong, it could make for a good distraction at some point.

That may be true, but if we gave it to King Roald- then we could preemptively arm the armies of Misthalin.

A war is coming, I believe, but its just going to be too late for the people of Meiyerditch...

Meiyerditch's flames will be the rallying cry for Misthalin's armies.

What do you mean by not being strong enough to wield them? Are you saying that normal humans don't have the lvls to use them? I don't think there canonically is some magic force that prevents them from holding a weapon, that's more like a gameplay mechanic.

I have noticed your kind does tend to blindly stumble forward towards danger simply because it exists. What is your word for that?

That may be true, but even if they could wield them, they'd all be too weak to strike someone with them. They'd be ripped to shreds. Even if we got them into the humans hands- AND they could take out some vyres- once the vyres found out, they'd just send the werewolves in instead.
