Magic butterfly net detail

The magic butterfly net is a piece of equipment that requires level 17 Hunter to wield. The net provides exactly the same abilities as an ordinary butterfly net, but greatly increases the player's chances of capturing butterflies and implings. The player still needs either the butterfly jar or impling jars to capture the respective creatures.

Players can get a magic butterfly net from Elnock Inquisitor by trading him three gourmet impling jars, two earth impling jars, and one essence impling jar. If bought from the Grand Exchange, it costs 7,185 coins to buy the impling jars required to purchase one magic butterfly net.

If you receive the message you need to unsheath your butterfly net to catch implings, or a message saying you need a butterfly net, right-click the minimise button on your action bar and select toggle-sheathe.

  • Despite being wielded in one hand, the magic butterfly net used to be classified as a two-handed weapon for the purpose of overrides, unlike normal butterfly nets which are classified as a one-handed crushing weapon. The magic butterfly net used the same combat pose and animations as a spear - which caused the player's right hand to hold on thin air because the net's shaft is not long enough. This was corrected on 5 January 2015 so that it uses one-handed overrides.
  • There is currently a bug involving Elnock Inquisitor and Puro-Puro. If you store your net in Elnock's Equipment Store while you have it equipped, it will appear both in the deposit and withdrawal menus. Depositing something else or closing/reopening the menu fixes this. Attempting to deposit this enigmatic net during the glitch results in the game claiming you have no more nets to deposit whilst retaining the illusion that you do.
