A Dead Branch is a usable item that summons a random non-MVP monsters from a list of 463 pre-renwal monsters. Branches can only be used in the Branch Room (@jump 236 194).
Dead Branch can summon mini-bosses.
Dead Branch cannot summon renewal monsters as ExperienceRO is pre-renewal.
In ExperienceRO, Dead Branch is mostly used for summoning Hardrock Mammoth for its Hard Skin which is used in Justin quests. It is also commonly used to summon monsters for cards such as Aqua Elemental Card, Mutant Dragonoid Card, and Maya Purple Card.
Apart from Hard Skin, there are other headgear ingredients that can be dropped by monsters that are summoned by Dead Branch.
Any well-geared character can survive monsters summoned by dead branches. However, some monsters can strip armor. This shouldn't be much of an issue if a player has a complete path set or an Elite Set. Still, it is recommended to have 100% resistance to the Neutral property and 100 MDEF.
If you summon too many monsters at a time, they can all gang up on you until it will be too difficult for you to use skills or you won't be able to use them at all. In this scenario, it can come in handy to utilize splash damage from Baphomet Card or a Collector path's lower headgear (Blessed Wings of Plentiful, Glory of a Collector, Pride of a Collector; see Collector Path Set).
