In-game description

Reishi mushroom is an ingredient item in The Long Dark.

Overview Edit

This mushroom can be found growing on tree stumps, in clusters of one to three. Although the in-game description says they are edible, they cannot be directly consumed. Instead two reishi mushrooms can be prepared through the crafting menu into prepared reishi mushrooms for 15 minutes. They can then be cooked with 0.25L of potable water which takes 10 minutes. A cup of reishi tea weights 0.10Kg and yields 100 calories, the tea also cures food poisoning like antibiotics.

Trivia Edit

  • Prepared reishi mushrooms weigh the same as 1 reishi mushroom although it takes 2 mushrooms to create thus making them a bit more weight efficient.

Game history Edit

  • Reishi mushrooms were introduced on 6 February 2015 in version 0.192.
  • Reishi mushrooms need to be prepared before cooking after the release of version 1.0 on 1 Aug 2017.
