To bolster your constitution, you must develop poison resistance. The University of Natural Philosophy will tell you what exotic poisons you must seek out, and in what order, to toughen your body.

Test Description

Egypt is home to dozens of species of deadly mushrooms. The Test of Darkest Night is taken in 7 stages, and involves building your body's resistance to toxins found in freshly grown mushroom species.

After analyzing your physiology, the scientists at Great University of Natural Philosophy have determined that at this stage, it is safe for you to:

  • Ingest 7 <Random Mushroom Species> Mushrooms

Details

Once you have eaten 7 of each mushroom on your list, you can turn it in to any UNatPhil and receive a new list.

You must turn in multiple lists to pass the test.

Tips

  • If you find mushrooms around low buildings like fountains, remember that Utility->Make nearby portables look like bags can come in handy.
  • It's safe to have Auto-take piles of up to 50 portable items enabled with this test, you don't have to disable it to get the menu. However, leaving it enabled will mean that you still auto gather any mushrooms not on your list. If your ID skills are not that great, it may be good to turn off the option, so that you do not accidentally gather mushrooms that someone else may need.

Passing the Test

  • You pass the test after turning in your last list to the University.

Did you know: This test is NOT competitive, so please do consider posting your findings onto one of the databases above. This will help YOU find the mushroom you need later on, and also help others know the spawn points of the mushrooms. Feel free to pick up the mushrooms before posting above, as it's only a historical record rather than mushrooms people can find right at that minute.
