Guthixian butterfly

The Guthixian butterfly is a creature released during the Tribute to Guthix event. The butterflies were removed from the game with the conclusion of the event on 2 April, 2013. They made a return from April 14 to April 28 2014 for the Cabbage Facepunch Bonanza. When caught, P2P players were awarded experience in their lowest skill (even if the P2P player was logged onto an F2P world. However, in that case, if the lowest skill is a members skill, no experience will be granted.) and the caught butterfly disappeared in a puff of coloured smoke. It was possible to talk to Memstix to toggle on/off receiving experience when catching Guthixian butterflies.

Catching five butterflies unlocked one of fifteen Guthixian memories. Each butterfly restored 15% of either your life points, prayer points or your summoning level, whichever was depleted most. If all three stats were at or above their maximum, one was randomly selected and temporarily boosted up to 5% above its maximum. Only twenty butterflies could be caught for rewards each day, and subsequent butterflies gave no experience points or stat boosts. Butterflies caught after the daily limit also did not count towards unlocking Guthixian memories, limiting the daily amount to four. Players could continue to catch the butterflies for fun, but simply received the message "You manage to catch the butterfly."

It is also possible to receive a Guthixian butterfly from picking a Butterfly flower plant.

Catching Guthixian butterfly

Catching a butterfly, which also boosts summoning. Note the summoning icon in the glow.

ExperienceEdit

For the first 20 butterflies caught per day, experience is gained in the lowest experience skill, like the Tears of Guthix distraction and diversion. A player with all skills at level 99 will gain Dungeoneering experience if their Dungeoneering level is below 120, otherwise they gain experience in the lowest experience skill.

The experience gained per butterfly is according to the following formula:

Experience\ gained =
\begin{cases}
6\times level & if\ level < 40 \\
16\times level & if\ 40\le level < 80 \\
22\times level & if\ 80\le level
\end{cases}

Where level is the level of their lowest skill. The possible amount of experience gained at each level is tabulated below.

Locations Edit

The butterflies can be found in various places across the world. They are located on the minimap and appear as yellow dots.

Rewards Edit

When caught, these butterflies give experience on the lowest skill. The amount of experience increases with the skill level. If you have at least 99 in all skills but don't have level 120 Dungeoneering, you'll get experience for Dungeoneering.

Catching butterflies also boosts Summoning, Prayer, and Life points above the nominal maximum. The boosted skill is shown in the glow after the butterfly is caught. Free players may see a Summoning glow but their summoning level cannot be restored to over 5, in the case of a past member.

The Summoning boost does not allow you to infuse pouches higher than your normal level, but it DOES allow you to do Ancient Effigies above your normal level.

TriviaEdit

  • The examine text of the Guthixian butterflies is: "A manifestation of a memory of Guthix."
  • The butterflies have a chance to noclip through some walls.
  • In rare cases, if two Guthixian butterflies are both on the same square, catching one of them will result in both being caught for full XP and boosts (if applicable), as if each was caught separately.
  • When the daily limits reset, the total number of butterflies caught by a player that day is not updated until you at least exit to the lobby. If you are logged in and the timer resets, any caught butterflies will count towards the previous days counter until you relog.
