An acorn of acuity is a fist-sized wooden carving of an acorn made from oak and polished smooth as if from years of use.
The first time a character holds an acorn of acuity he feels a sudden rush of consciousness as the item attunes to him. A character who holds the acorn in one hand gains a +5 competence bonus on all Survival skill checks. The acorn of acuity's owner can also speak with animals, as the spell, once per day.
Lore: These simply carved acorns are powerful tools originally created by druids to help their companions understand the glory of nature. Many travelers find these items indispensable for long journeys in the wild. Rangers tend to favor acorns of acuity as they enhance their nature oriented skills.
Prerequisites: Craft Wondrous Item, speak with animals.
