How to Unlock Druid Hidden Artifact Weapon Appearances

druid hidden artifact weapon appearances featured

Druids are guardians of nature and protectors of the Emerald Dream, and their artifact weapons reflect this background. This guide will go over how to unlock the hidden appearances for all four druid artifact weapons. To unlock the additional color tints for these appearances, see our main Hidden Artifact Weapon Appearances guide.


Weapon: Scythe of Elune (Two Hand)
Hidden Appearance: Sunkeeper’s Reach
Hidden Effect: Light of Elune (You will be able to decurse Feral Spirit from Feral Worgens in Val’sharah. You will earn some Artifact Power each time you do so.)
Unlocked By: The Sunbloom

How to Unlock Sunkeeper’s Reach

You can acquire The Sunbloom by combining Seed of Solar Fire with Pure Drop of Shaladrassil’s Sap. Both items require Exalted reputation with the Dreamweavers faction. Dreamweavers reputation can be earned by completing quests in Val’sharah.

Once you are Exalted with the Dreamweavers, locate Sylvia Hartshorn at Lorlathil in Val’sharah (/way Val'sharah 54.6 73.2). Purchase Seed of Solar Fire from her for 1600 gold.

Next you will need to kill the first boss of the Darkheart Thicket dungeon, Archdruid Glaidalis. He has a chance to drop Pure Drop of Shaladrassil’s Sap. The drop rate is low, so you may need to kill him quite a few times.

Once you have both Seed of Solar Fire and Pure Drop of Shaladrassil’s Sap, right-click on either of them in your bag to combine them into The Sunbloom.


Weapon: Fangs of Ashamane (Main Hand) and Fangs of Ashamane (Off Hand)
Hidden Appearance: Moonspirit
Hidden Effect: Hunter’s Rush
Unlocked By: Feather of the Moonspirit

How to Unlock Moonspirit

You may have noticed an emote telling you that a screech came from one of the portals in the Emerald Dreamway. This regular event is your cue to follow the sound through the portal to Duskwood, Feralas, or The Hinterlands. An easy way to check if the event is active is with this command. If it returns as true, then you’re in luck!

/dump C_QuestLog.IsQuestFlaggedCompleted(44326)

If you missed which portal the screech was coming from, here are three more commands you can try to narrow it down:

  • Duskwood:
 /dump C_QuestLog.IsQuestFlaggedCompleted(44329)
  • Feralas:
/dump C_QuestLog.IsQuestFlaggedCompleted(44327)
  • Hinterlands:
/dump C_QuestLog.IsQuestFlaggedCompleted(44328)

Once you’ve figured out where to go, head through the correct portal and start looking around for an owlcat stone. This is a stone marker with a pawprint on it. It will be located somewhere on the ground near the portal. When you find it, click on it. You will receive the temporary buff Mark of the Moonspirit and another emote will appear in your chat.

Once you have done this in all three zones – Duskwood, Feralas, and The Hinterlands – you will find Ela’lothen in the center of the Emerald Dreamway. Now all you need to do is stand in front of him and use the /sit emote in the chat and you will receive the Feather of the Moonspirit.

Weapon: Claws of Ursoc (Main Hand) and Claws of Ursoc (Off Hand)
Hidden Appearance: Guardian of the Glade
Hidden Effect: Your Bear Form ability has a chance to generate 100 rage instead of 10.
Unlocked By: Mark of the Glade Guardian

How to Unlock Guardian of the Glade

To obtain a Mark of the Glade Guardian you will need to kill Ursoc, a boss in the Emerald Nightmare raid. The item has a fairly low drop rate, so you may need to kill him quite a few times before you see it. Like most raid bosses, he can only be killed once per week on each difficulty. You will need to kill Nythendra, the first boss, in order to gain access to Ursoc. Killing both should be fairly trivial for a high level character.


Weapon: G’Hanir, the Mother Tree (Two Hand)
Hidden Appearance: Warden’s Crown
Hidden Effect: Unknown
Unlocked By: Acorn of the Endless

How to Unlock Warden’s Crown

The Acorn of the Endless can be looted from plots of rich soil, which you gain access to through the Evergreen order hall trait.

To research the Evergreen trait, speak with Leafbeard the Storied in The Dreamgrove, your class order hall. He will only be there if you have completed your order hall campaign up to ! A Glade Defense. You will first need to research a tier 1 trait at a cost of 50 Order Resources, waiting 2 hours for it to finish. Then you can research the Evergreen trait for 100 Order Resources. Another 4 hours later you will gain access to two plots of rich soil. You can find them in The Dreamgrove just south of the Circle of Spirits.

/way The Dreamgrove 45.0 62.5

Click on each one to plant a seed. They will have to grow for three days, then you will be able to click on them to loot them. The Acorn of the Endless has a fairly low drop rate so you will likely need to go through several planting cycles before you see one.
