If you discard the ectoplasmator, you can get a replacement from Diango in Draynor.
Carrying this and fighting spirits will give you Prayer XP.
ectoplasmator is a rare drop from a number of ghosts. It was originally a reward from the 2012 Hallowe'en event. It could be bought for 50 ectoplasm while wearing a full set of hallowed robes (from Brother Righteous) or unhallowed robes (from Brother Heinous), requiring at least 4 rounds where all 5 ghosts are found. It was also available as a drop from the ghosts in the 2014 Hallowe'en event, and from the urns in the Til Death Do Us Part.
When carried in a player's inventory or worn in the
pocket slot, the ectoplasmator will give Prayer experience after killing most ghosts, similar to the bonecrusher. However, the ectoplasmator does not work with the Dungeoneering prayer necklaces (the twisted bird skull, split dragontooth, and demon horn necklaces) in restoring prayer points. For this effect, players will need to upgrade the ectoplasmator into an attuned ectoplasmator by using 100 ghostly essence on it. Experience gained via the ectoplasmator does not stack with the first age outfit.
Occasionally, when trying to pick up a dropped ectoplasmator by hand, the following message may appear:
You try to pick up the ectoplasmator, only to find that your fingers pass right through it.
That's right...it's a GHOST ectoplasmator! Woooooo!
To pick it up use the
telegrab spell or have your legendary pet scavenge it. If the item is not picked up before it disappears or it is already obtained and subsequently lost, it can be reclaimed from Diango in the market in Draynor village.
It can be stored in a
toy box in a player-owned house.
^ Does not include level 79 ghosts in the Wilderness.
^ Extra experience to the 30 experience ghasts already give.
