The Lumberwood is going to be on the Southwest side of the island. It is the same direction from where you will be coming from the Fairy World.

The Lumberwood is going to be hiding behind the trees in the forest. The best thing about this familiar is that it spawns every time you will be there, so there is no waiting for him to show.

If the Lumberwood is not present in the trees for some reason, there is a way to summon him. If you use the gateway from and back to the tree’s location, then every time you come back from the gateway, The Lumberwood will be there.

To capture The Lumberwood, you need to fight him and his mates. First, you need to kill the Balloonatic because it casts a healing rein, which will heal your enemy’s health.

You need to repeat the process of capturing The Lumberwood with a tree head until you have him. You will capture him at the end if you kill all his defenses which are his buddies.
