Big and Little Withers

The Withers item teaches you how to summon and dismiss Withers, a treant companion that follows you around, meaning it is a non-combat pet and will not aid you in battle. This pet is similar to the  [Teldrassil Sproutling] pet from the Argent Tournament.

Withers starts off as a rather large companion then will eventually wither down to a small size over roughly 25 minutes. If Withers comes in contact with a deep enough water source he grows to full size again and does the following emote in chat.

Withers absorbs the water, growing back to full size.


The Horde can buy this from Apothecary Furrows in Darkshore.
