Knowledge of the secret language of ancient fungus creatures.

Myconic is a skill linked to the of gathering of mushrooms. Sometimes when picking a mushroom, you'll earn Myconic XP instead of Mycology. Along with the XP, you'll "hear" or "see" voices and visions in your head. As your Myconic skill increases, these experiences will reveal more about what the mushrooms are trying to tell you.

This skill can be obtained early on while exploring Anagoge

Another way to unlock this skill is to Hang Out with Mushroom Jack. In his hang out menu choose the task "Hunt for Myconians down in the ravine" which will require you to spend 4 hours offline. Once completed you will be given the myconic skill. Once you unlock myconic, gathering mycena mushrooms will give you the myconic experience more often than other mushrooms. However, every mushroom has a chance of giving myconic experience. A lot of mycena mushrooms are in the Serbule Sewers so this is a good place to go once you unlock the myconic skill.
