This enemy fires an arc of 10 pellets at characters. It usually appears in large groups, and the density of the pellet attacks from each enemy can mean a quick kill on the player's side. However, except in very few circumstances, these trees tend to spawn a decent distance away from characters, well out of range of their damaging attacks. Ranged characters have no issue in taking them down. That being said, if a ranged attacker isn't available, it's possible (though very difficult) to get in close and utilize the Dodge strategy to take them down. This is a less than optimal plan, however, given that the trees are usually in large, tight bunches, causing them all to usually attack the characters at once. A Gladiator with a weapon containing a Vampire's Card 4 and a Silver or Black Crystal of high level is very useful against the large groups, as the compo items make the Gladiator almost impossible to kill. Fire type weapons are best against this enemy, although an Area of Effect Freeze type weapon like the Magician's Freeze Explosion 6 can also be a major help.
