A cousin to the modwir, the sephwir is a highly magical wood that hails from the western DragonSpine, found growing within the fabled forests of Yuriqen. Thus, any quantities of sephwir remaining in use today can be assumed to have been harvested before the Yuriqen forests were closed. This results in the wood being both rare and almost priceless. There are unverified reports of individual trees growing in the Turamzzyrian region of Helt, however no living trees are commonly known. Attempts to propagate the trees in other areas have met with no success, and it is thought that this is due to a critical connection between the magic known to have been resident in the soil of Yuriqen and the sephwir trees living there. Sephwir makes a superior wood for bows, and weapons crafted of the beautiful, silver-hued wood figure prominently in fables surrounding the archer armies of the Yuriqen Sylvans.

Sephwir is considered a rarer material. Because of this, it requires fodder when used in alterations. See alter fodder for more information.
