Cinnabar Polypore, yellow variant

The ingredient Cinnabar Polypore Yellow Cap comes from the plant "Cinnabar Polypore", which is a somewhat hard-to-find mushroom that primarily grows on the sides of trees in the West Weald region. There is a second variety of "Cinnabar Polypore" which is red in color and yields Cinnabar Polypore Red Cap.

Without the Shivering Isles expansion pack, Cinnabar Polypore Yellow Cap is one of only two ingredients which can be used to create a Reflect Spell potion: at expert level it can be combined with Glow Dust. There are no negative side effects. Shivering Isles adds two more ingredients with Reflect Spell (also expert-level only): Watcher's Eye and Withering Moon.
