Not to be confused with the Wellspring Tree

Verdant paradise showed itself to me
After wandering through the crystal sea
To my knees I fell in tears

Verdant Paradise (Spriton origin)[1]


The Wellspring was an oasis located in the northern part of the Crystal Desert, at the foot of the Claw Mountains. It was protected from the Three Suns by surrounding cliffs, and featured a lake from which grew Oszah-Staba.[2] It was a short distance away from the Wellspring Cloister.[3]

The Dousan would congregate at the Wellspring to rest and restock supplies, as well as tend to their sick and wounded. Elderly Dousan would leave their xerics and retire to the Wellspring, taking it upon themselves to maintain the area and give assistance to passers by.[2]
