Swordtip mushrooms grow in clusters along the banks of rivers and lakes. They tend to grow nestled in nooks and crannies, such as in the shadows of a boulder or a river edge tree. This sometimes makes them difficult to find. They also grow near waterfalls and in shallow caves, where there is moisture in the air.
Only the cap is visible as it pierces the ground. The cap itself is extremely tall, thin and tapered, somewhat like a sword. The cap is about 12 niches long and silvery grey.
The swordtip mushroom is edible and has a delicate flavor. It is used in many cultures to flavor sauces, meats and salads. Raw swordtips are bitter. They need to be boiled to bring out the flavor. The swordtip mushroom grows in much of Qeshir and Ithria.
