|A scroll for a praying mantis familiar.|
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 is the special move of the Praying mantis, activated by a Mantis strike scroll. When activated against an opponent, it attacks with magic for up to 979 damage and 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 flower. This was changed to any flower in a later update. Currently any colours except for black and white may be used.
