In the late evening and the wee hours of the Egyptian morning (and, in some cases, in broad daylight), mushroom spawns will pop up in many locations, during which time they are free for the taking. These spawns will vanish a few in-game hours after appearing. There are over two dozen varieties of mushroom. All are useful in Cooking, and some have other uses beyond eating. For instance, they are used in Botanical Identification tuition costs.

Most mushrooms are found growing in the wild between 02:00 am and 06:00 am game time, however, there are some mushrooms that spawn during the 'daylight' and early evening hours. They have fixed spawn and despawn times. Most mushrooms will stay up for an hour and a half gametime before despawning. See the table below for spawn and despawn times.

All mushrooms are mildly poisonous, but cooking removes the toxins. The Test of the Darkest Night allows Egyptians to train their bodies to safely eat raw mushrooms, building their Constitution in the process.

An alternative tool to the shroom dar, this application also lets you animate the mushrooms over time among other things. The link seems broken now though (2013-04-01)
