No theft risk
There is no risk that the plutonean mantis will steal GTP (£££), XP, bait, or ghost plasma if you fail to catch it.
Mechanics and strategy
Plasma and cauldrons
Use xeno plasma and one of the alien cauldrons shown here to try to attract the plutonean mantis.
The plutonean mantis:
- is attracted to your trap by the presence of galaxy glow
Catching a plutonean mantis monster requires the assistance of many friends—50 friends (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 plutonean mantis monster after the next hunt that you start.
You must start the hunt; the plutonean mantis will not appear after a friend-led hunt or a normal auto-hunt.
The plutonean mantis can be captured throughout Virtual Scotland, in all of the normal, non-raiding locations. During special events, it can also be captured in certain of the special event locations, as shown below. The plutonean mantis can be captured in spider dens, but not in any of the Alien visitors locations:
During Haunted weeks, the plutonean mantis can be captured in:
During Celebration week special events, the plutonean mantis can also be captured in:
The plutonean mantis has been known to occasionally drop one or more of the following items of ghost loot:
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 plutonean mantis. 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 the loot list above. 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 a special item, companion or contract with the stat on it), the plutonean mantis 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.
Vintage connoisseur loot
If you have the vintage connoisseur stat in your setup (through a special item, 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 from the plutonean mantis. 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)
