The Black warlock is a butterfly that players can capture with the Hunter skill at level 45 or above. Players can find Black warlocks at the Feldip Hunter area. They must wield a butterfly net or a magic butterfly net and have at least one butterfly jar (1 butterfly jar for each butterfly) in their inventory to catch them. All of these items are available for purchase in hunter stores, for example the shop in Yanille.
Black warlocks and other butterflies can also be caught using a morphic or volatile Sacred clay butterfly net. Morphic butterfly nets give double the original experience, and Volatile butterfly nets give 2.2 times. The Morphic and Volatile tools can be obtained as rewards from the minigame Stealing Creation.
After catching a Black warlock, players can either release them (via a right-click option) or use them on another player (note that you need to be in a multi-combat area to do it and the player you will use it on need to have accept aid on) to boost their Strength by 20%.
An efficient method for capturing them effectively is to locate a spawn and stay by it. The butterflies respawn every 3 to 4 seconds, so by not moving a player can repeatedly capture and release the butterflies. There are spawns all over the Feldip Hunter area.
At level 95 Hunter and 90 Agility, the player can catch black warlocks with his/her bare hands. Doing this gives the player 650 Hunter experience and 125 Agility experience. To do this, the player must unequip anything he/she is wielding and click the butterfly. The player will follow it until it is caught. However, after the Black warlock is caught, the player will release it.
