I've been playing around with briar quite a bit recently, and discovered some interesting things. Searching the forums led me to a fantastic discussion by TFMurphy, but I thought it was time to give the briar discussion a bit of an update.

This is a long post, so sections are secreted for organisational reasons. Also, there is an image illustrating a few of the points made. This image can be found in the last secret of the post.

This is really cool :D Maybe I found the thing you forgot?

Gentryii and Gentryii chains behave exactly like walls/obstacles to Briar, which means an orthogonally oriented length of Gentryii will block off Briar while a diagonal one will see Briar growing straight across its chains on the diagonal. Lots of things can't move diagonally across Gentryii chains, so it's worth noting.

Good call. I've edited the part about gentryii to include that, since things going across chains is pretty weird.

Believe it or not this has actually been used in a published hold.

Briar's mechanics have also been covered pretty thoroughly in the Advanced Concepts 2 briar level, but it's good to get a refresher and especially see how briar interacts with DROD 5.0 elements. So thanks for putting in the hard work!
