The Mantis strike scroll enables the use of the Mantis strike special move for a Praying mantis. Using a Praying mantis pouch on a Summoning obelisk creates ten Mantis strike scrolls.
Mantis strike Edit
Mantis strike is the special move of the Praying mantis, activated by a Mantis strike scroll. When activated against an opponent, it uses a magic based attack (max hit 170) which always drains the opponent's prayer and binds if it deals any damage. Each use of a Mantis strike scroll requires 6 special move points.
- The examine text is a reference to the movie, Karate Kid.
- The secondary ingredient for the praying mantis used to be a red mithril flower. This was changed to any flower in a later update. The menu on the skills interface currently states that any colour but all black and all white will work
- As of November 28, 2012, there is currently a glitch for creating the pouch. If one attempts to make a pouch, even with the correct ingredients, a message will come up saying: "You do not have all the materials to make these Summoning pouches." This glitch has been fixed.
