You should not have a magic rope accessory enabled (since that blocks you from falling through a trapdoor.
In the fairy pools, in addition to the ghosts shown in the table below, you will also see all of the non-secret ghosts that can be captured in Phantom Castle. See that page for more information on those ghosts.
Mechanics and strategy
Plasma and cauldrons
Use sacred plasma and one of the sacred cauldrons shown here to try to attract any of the fairy pools monsters.
The Fairy pools monsters:
- are attracted to your trap by the presence of valiant vapor
- will not be attracted if you already have a ghost monster of any type that your friends are assisting with.
Catching any monster requires the assistance of many friends—how many friends are needed depends on the monster (minus any benefits you gain from having the monsterslayer stat bonus in your setup. Once enough friends have assisted you, you will see that you have caught the monster after the next hunt that you start.
You must start the hunt; fairy pools monsters will not appear after a friend-led hunt or a normal auto-hunt.
|Specific loot drops|
For information on many of the non-secret other ghosts you will see in the fairy pools, see the Phantom Castle page. The secret ghosts from the Phantom Castle cannot travel through the trapdoor into the fairy pools.
Loot is occasionally dropped in Fairy pools (and in all non-raiding locations) by the local ghosts, by special ghosts and by all of the ghost monsters (original, elemental, jurassic monsters, vampire lords and ladies, and the knights of the round table).
As experienced players, agents of S.C.O.T.C.H. hunting in Fairy pools will recognize that which ghosts drop which loot can change without notice. If you have a loot drop not mentioned here, please let the wiki sysop know so that a correction can be made.
Plasma (of all sorts), chrono crystal fragments, magic potions (including Nessy's Golden Reserve), and some companions are all occasionally dropped here. See the loot page for information about the loot items that are widely available in Virtual Scotland.
If you have the mockery stat in your setup (through the talent tree bonus or because of an accessory, companion or contract with the stat} you may occasionally have between 2 and 10 mocktails added to other loot drops from the ghosts in Fairy pools. Because these mockery stat drops are so dependent on a player's individual setup and cannot be relied upon, none of the mocktails are included in any loot lists for Fairy pools. The entire list of possible mocktails that may be dropped is on the mocktails page.
Mockery drops can be distinguished from a normal loot drop as follows:
A standard loot drop of a mocktail 5x Cherry bomb A mockery loot drop of a mocktail 5 Devil driver
If you have the snowfall stat in your setup (because of an accessory, companion or contract with the stat), ghosts in Fairy pools may occasionally and randomly drop you a snowflake as loot. Because these snowfall-driven drops are so dependent on a player's individual setup and cannot be relied upon, snowflake loot drops are not specifically included in any lists on this page or on the individual ghost pages.
Vintage connoissesur loot
If you have the vintage connoisseur stat in your setup (through an accessory, companion or contract with the stat} you may occasionally have between 2 and 10 bottles of a non-Nessy's loot potion or of Shadetouch blue or Shadetouch purple added to other loot drops in Fairy pools. Because these connoisseur drops are so dependent on a player's individual setup and cannot be relied upon, none of the non-Nessy's loot potions involved are included in the loot list above. The entire list of possible bottles that can be dropped is found on the non-Nessy's loot potions page.
Both normal drops of a particular non-Nessy's loot potion and connoisseur drops of a particular loot potion show the same way in your journal:
16 x Shadetouch purple (10 bonus loot)
Fairy pools-specific loot
Specific items of loot that are dropped in Fairy pools include:
