Also known as the Twin Harp, the Whisperweed is given to Cecil Harvey by Edward at Troia Castle when the party finds Edward sick in one of the rooms. When trying to save the Earth crystal from the Dark Elf, he puts up a magnetic field so that swords and other metal weapons can't be used. When the party finally meets the Dark Elf he easily eliminates the party, but the power of the Whisperweed sends music from Edward's Harp that he is playing to the Whisperweed. This upsets the Dark Elf and ruins his concentration so that he can no longer maintain his magnetic shield. Now Cecil and the party can use their weapons and metal armor again.
After defeating the Dark Elf, Edward tells you he was playing an old elven song that was said to greatly upset dark elves. However, in the DS version, Edward says it was a song he had learned on his travels to ward off evil.
Edward has a piece of Whisperweed hidden in Baron Castle to eavesdrop on Cecil. He also uses Whisperweed to stay in contact with the people of Damcyan while aboard the Lunar Whale, until they fly out of the plant's range of transmission. Much to Edward's surprise, it begins to work again as they reach the Depths of the True Moon, and discover that the the moon is moving in closer to the Earth.
Whisperweed is also a dummied out key item, accessible only via hacking.
The Whisperweed is given to Galuf by Xezat upon entering the Barrier Tower. During the operation of destroying the tower, Xezat and the party separate, as the party heads for destroying the antenna at its top, and Xezat descends to the Generator Room, both sides communicate using the Whisperweed.
Unfortunately, after destroying the antenna, Xezat gets trapped inside an overdrive generator room, which causes his death.
Whisperweed is not an item in the game, but is mentioned in the "Whisperweed Blossom" errand:
The labyrinthine cave on the outskirts of Warjilis led to a vast underground lake. We sensed we were being watched as we stared across the water, and turned to see a pack of red mousses ready to pounce. After overcoming our foes, we saw an astonishing sight: the blossom of whisperweed, a plant that blooms only once in several millenia. Could the monsters have been protecting it?
- "Strange tubes in the stalk of this plant can carry the faintest noise across long distances. Increasingly rare of late."
The Whisperweed is a piece of loot, obtained by completing the mission It's the Thought, and is required in order to create the Druid Mace. It is also mentioned in the quest from Cross the Sea as a tool for long distance communication between two friends who recently find themselves separated by an ocean.
Whisperweed appears as a trade accessory that grants +4 Luck, and can only be received via password.
