Crystal saw detail.png

A crystal saw is an item made from a crystal saw seed by invoking the singing bowl in Brimstail's cave in the Tree Gnome Stronghold. The seed is awarded to players who complete The Eyes of Glouphrie quest.

When in the inventory, the saw allows the player to build furniture up to 3 levels higher than their current Construction level. Note that this boost only works on furniture that requires both a saw and a hammer to make (STASH units and Fire Pits included); as such, the saw cannot assist in building new rooms or planting flowers in a garden. This bonus stacks with all other visible boosts to Construction, making it possible to boost up to +8 using the saw and Stews.

If players lose or destroy the saw, they can get it back by talking to Brimstail in his cave. He will not give players a seed if they have either the seed or the saw in the bank or inventory.

The saw cannot be used to get higher-level contracts in Mahogany Homes.

Degradation[edit | edit source]

The saw has 28 charges (56 if the medium Western Provinces Diary has been completed). One charge is used each time the player constructs a piece of furniture while using the saw's invisible boost; thus, players using the saw to build furniture that they already have the base level to build will not consume charges. Charges are not consumed when building STASH units beyond the player's level.

Once the saw runs out of charges, it reverts to its seed form and will need to be re-enchanted by returning to Brimstail's cave.
