The Tangle Tree is a quest with an eponymous boss. Defeating this boss will unlock the Treeling Quest Pet. The quest scroll can be purchased from the Quest Shop for 4 gems.

The Tangle Tree's HP (600) makes this a medium length quest and its strength multiplier (1.5) make this an easy quest. Without using Warrior or Mage boss damaging skills, a four-person party can typically finish this quest in between two and three weeks.


It's the annual Garden Competition, and everyone is talking about the mysterious project which @aurakami has promised to unveil. You join the crowd on the day of the big announcement, and marvel at the introduction of a moving tree. @fuzzytrees explains that the tree will help with garden maintenance, showing how it can mow the lawn, trim the hedge and prune the roses all at the same time – until the tree suddenly goes wild, turning its secateurs on its creator! The crowd panics as everyone tries to flee, but you aren't afraid – you leap forward, ready to do battle.


Defeat the Tangle Tree.

You dust yourself off as the last few leaves drift to the floor. In spite of the upset, the Garden Competition is now safe – although the tree you just reduced to a heap of wood chips won't be winning any prizes! "Still a few kinks to work out there," @PainterProphet says. "Perhaps someone else would do a better job of training the saplings. Do you fancy a go?"
