    All you lumberjacks out there... Got a couple of questions for you:

    1) If a tree gives Oak or Ash or Heartwood, can that same tree give Bloodwood - in that same chopping session? I mean, can I stop chopping a tree as soon as I see that it has Oak or Ash (when I'm only looking for Bloodwood)?

    2) Are the special resources like the fungi (or the crystal shards in Ter Mur) tied to "higher trees" or are those completely rng?

    1) A tree can only produce one type of colored wood (or all plain) when chopped. If it is Oak, I will stay Oak. It may or may not change later (I say may not because I had a Yew tree, stay Yew, for 3+ months after Random Resources were implemented). Once you find a Bloodwood tree, mark a rune, there is a decent chance it will remain Bloodwood.

    2) They are purely RNG and not tied to the rarer wood types.

    Stayin Alive,

    1- it's possible in this situation- if you are chopping the tree and the respawn timer hits, it can change and I have had that happen to me. I've started on a tree giving frost wood and as I reached what I knew was the limit for that tree, it kept going and became Yew.
