Description


WOOHOO, up and round I go, twisting and turning, true firedevil!

No theft risk

There is no risk that the fire whirl ghost will steal GTP (£££), XP, bait, or ghost plasma if you fail to catch it.

Additional information


Location

The fire whirl ghost can be captured in Burningham Castle, located in region 6, Central.

The fire whirl ghost can only be captured in region 6, Central, in Tier 2 of Burningham Castle, and only after you have completed the Combustion collection. In addition you must have sufficient rhombus red light to attract the fire whirl ghost, and will capture it only if your setup contains sufficient extinguish and/or brute force.

(You can only reach Tier 2 of Burningham Castle by completing a set of challenges in Tier 1, Burning Burningham Castle and capturing:

200     Campfire storyteller ghost
120     Spicy chili pepper ghost
60     Tableflippin ragequitter ghost)

The fire whirl ghost can also be captured in Rising Sun castle, in Tayside.

Mystic resistance

The fire whirl ghost is resistant to mystic power.

Mystic-resistant ghosts have three primary types:

  • Ghosts that can be caught with a strong raw-power setup
  • Ghosts that can only be caught with a combination of willpower (to overcome their mystic resistance) and high mystic power
  • Ghosts that require brute force in your setup to activate before they can be caught

Use a high mystic power, high willpower setup when you are trying to catch the Fire whirl ghost.

Brute force may also strengthen your setup when you are trying to catch the fire whirl ghost.

Brute force

The only way to catch the fire whirl ghost is to have brute force in your setup, and for that brute force to activate.

There is no way to catch the fire whirl ghost with just a high raw power setup (and no brute force) or with just a high mystic power setup (and no brute force).

Extinguish

The fire whirl ghost is always on fire when you attract it.

The best way to catch the fire whirl ghost is to have the extinguish stat in your setup, and for that extinguish stat to activate and dampen down that fire whirl ghost so that your trap setup has a chance against it.

You can also catch the fire whirl ghost if the brute force stat is in your setup and activates.

There is no way to catch the fire whirl ghost with just a high raw power setup (and no extinguish or brute force) or with just a high mystic power setup (and no extinguish or brute force).

Keep your fire extinguisher ready!

Drops

The fire whirl ghost has been known to occasionally drop the following types of ghost loot:

Snowflake loot

If you have the snowfall stat in your setup (because of a bait, companion or contract with the stat on it), the fire whirl ghost 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 the list above.

Mockery loot

If you have the mockery stat in your setup from a bait, companion or contract with the stat (or any other type of equipment} you may occasionally have between 2 and 10 mocktails added to other loot drops from the fire whirl ghost. Because these mockery drops are so dependent on a player's individual setup and cannot be relied upon, none of the mocktails are included in the loot list above. The entire list of possible mocktails that may be dropped is on the mocktails page.

Mockery stat drops can be distinguished from a normal loot drop as follows:

A standard loot drop of a mocktail     5x Cherry bomb
A mockery stat-caused loot drop of a mocktail     5 Devil driver

Vintage connoisseur loot

If you have the vintage connoisseur stat in your setup (through a companion or contract or other piece of equipment 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 from the fire whirl ghost. 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)

Bait

You may want to use a bait with the extinguish stat on it (such as fire retardant foam or firewater to help you catch a fire whirl ghost.
