Everywhere I turn more roots

I love roots, if I am stuck for cash I know roots are there for me.

Everywhere I go I find roots, in the Bazaar turn to my right and auto forage roots, maxed my swim out in PoK and autoforaged roots got two stacks sold for 100pp, may not sound alot to some peoples.

Too think I used to eat these, now I sell them to put into my baking and brewing, for big meals with nice stats.

by auto-forage i assume he means linking the forage command to a arrow key... so that when u press that key, (up, left, right, or down... left or right prolly best though) u forage at that time... very handy for skilling up forage and just foraging in general.

To do this go into the options screen and then commands and tie in whatever hotkey u have forage on to the arrow key.

It is also possible to do this with other skills as well.. i know that sense heading was a big one back in the day when it was useful skill, not sure what else might be worth linking to an arrow key.
Found in Field of Bone

What's the use?

Are these used in any recipe other than stormguard root beer? I've got about a million of these and have no idea what to do with them (my brewing iss 188, so...)

Also used to prepare fish (fish, roots, cleandine herbs, filleting knife in a tacklebox; trivial between 172 to 182 fishing, depending on the fish) to extract bones for various uses, such as the fisherman's companion quest, crucible of escape, fishbone darts, etc.

Stormguard root beer is the only BREWING recipe I know of that uses these, though.

You can combine your stormguard rootbeer with frosting and a chunk of ice (drops off of golras in Timorous Deep) to make root beer floats if you like. Trivial on root bear floats is about 41 brewing.

Well there's a few other places you can't forage these in besides the Grey: Plane of Disease, Crypt of Decay, Plane of Innovation, Plane of Torment, to name a few. Basically any zone that cuts off the edibles, like the Grey does. Other than that, you can forage these almost anywhere.

PoK seems to be a GREAT place to forage these. Almost every succesful forage (like 80% of them it seems) gets you roots there. Most of the rest of the time it's bookworms or habanero peppers. Ocassinally you get the other various "everyehere" forages like fruit, berries, and pods of water.
