Standing approximately twelve feet tall, the treekin warrior towers menacingly before you.  Lambent yellow eyes and thick leg-shaped roots make it clear that this is no ordinary tree.  Leaves cover the warrior from head to trunk, with two arm-shaped branches protruding from the canopy.  Numerous gashes and chips indicate that this particular specimen has seen much combat in the past.

Hunting strategies

Treekin warriors do not stun and are quite difficult to knock down. Severing a single leg will not knock them over, and they can stand back up even with both legs severed. They are immune to Grasp of the Grave (709). Sorcerers can hunt them safely using Pain (711) to keep them in RT lock, but the treekin druids are several levels higher, have barkskin and maneuvers, and buff their TD with defensive spells. The treekin saplings can be several levels lower than the warriors but have a knockdown ability that can be lethal in combination with the treekin warrior groan DS pushdown. Elemental Wave (410) affects them but requires significant Minor Elemental spell ranks at like level to be useful. Treekin will get knocked down, stunned, and RT locked for Evil Eye (717), which can be mass cast (including remotely) using a demon carrying an eye with catch/release alias.

Other information

Treekin warriors can hide dead bodies. Just like in snow, the rescuer must search for the body and then point at it to reveal the character.

A treekin warrior hides your corpse under a pile of leaves.

Warriors can pick you up and chuck you into another room.

A treekin warrior attempts to grab you!
The warrior snatches you up and hurls you north!

[Red Forest, Deep Woods]
A field of snapped and splintered branches spreads out in every direction like a wooden necropolis.  Huge circular tracks leave giant impressions along the cluttered ground.
Obvious paths: northeast, east, south, west
You slam into the ground!
... 15 points of damage!
Nasty blow to your left leg!
You are stunned for 1 round

They also have a maneuver where they spit acidic sap at you, which can instantly kill you with head shots.

A treekin warrior suddenly spits a gob of sap directly at you!
You are struck by the highly acidic sap!  It burns!
... 20 points of damage!
Hit on the arm chars the skin and eats into the underlying muscles!
You are stunned for 2 rounds!

If a ranger casts Tangle Weed while a treekin warrior is in the room, it will take over control of the vine and turn it hostile to the ranger and other PCs present.

A swirling cloud of shadow forms around your right hand as you prepare Tangleweed...
Your spell is ready.
You gesture.
Cast Roundtime 3 Seconds.
>
A thorn-barbed dirge-vaon vine suddenly sprouts from the ground and begins to thrash about violently!
Dirge-vaon vine wraps gently around a treekin warrior as the warrior creaks and groans softly at it.
>
The dirge-vaon vine lashes out at you, but is unable to grasp you.
>dismiss vine
That is not your vine to control.
DS Pushdown

When they "groan angrily" it appears to impose a DS penalty around -60:

A treekin warrior pounds at you with a leafy fist!
  AS: +385 vs DS: +437 with AvD: +42 + d100 roll: +41 = +31
   A clean miss.

A treekin warrior groans angrily!
A treekin warrior pounds at you with a leafy fist!
  AS: +375 vs DS: +378 with AvD: +42 + d100 roll: +24 = +63
   A clean miss.

This appears to be the attack of choice for fresh warriors.

Twin Hammerfists
A treekin warrior raises its branches high, interweaves them into a thick mass, and brings them crashing down towards you!
A treekin warrior put too much force into its swing!  Completely missing you, it ends up sprawled on the ground looking up at you!
Other messaging
A treekin warrior appears to wrap its branches closely around itself.
