Alchemical Nitpicking

Just two little questions that have been nagging at me:

1) Why is it so rare to find Willow Bark while foraging? It literally grows on trees. Besides, it's a main ingredient in Healing Potions, which are very common and very cheap. If the potion's so cheap, why is it so hard to find one of the ingredients?

2) Where does Noximander Venom come from? I'm on my third playthrough, and I've never seen a Noximander or Devilmander anywhere in this game. Is that same venom produced by some other critter on the island?

It's possible that the Foraging Skill still needs a little "fine-tuning" (IMO)...

Heh - good point. ;)

(In fact, I was a little disappointed that there are no lizard Mobs (not counting the Basilisk, which is a "special" case) in Book III. No Bats either - I miss those guys from Book I... :( )
