From reading the forums, I've seen people claim to get them as drops from aberrant spectres, banshees, revenants, and spiritual mages/warriors/rangers. --User:Saftzie/Signature 17:50, October 25, 2012 (UTC)
I recieved one from a Tormented Soul in QBD.
i got it drop from tormented wraith in 10 kills
I got one from the Aberrent Spectres. I did not do the event - I just got one as a drop. I killed 132, so the rarity is 1/132 based on my experience alone. Emptylord (talk) 06:23, March 28, 2013 (UTC)

I got an ectoplasmator drop whilst in the Chaos Tunnels; the room with many Animated Spades and Possessed Pickaxes. I'm now collecting prayer exp from the spades (4.5ea). Neither are listed as dropping or giving exp.18.104.22.168 14:39, June 24, 2016 (UTC)
After the event is over do u get to keep it or will it disapear? it would be worth getting if you can use it for ever —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Simpuhl (talk) on 21:28, 24 October 2012 (UTC).
- If they're really getting dropped by monsters, then chances are it's a new permanent item to help train prayer. The holiday event is just a way to distribute masses of them to existing players. Unless a J-mod says it, though, it's still speculation. --User:Saftzie/Signature 17:55, October 25, 2012 (UTC)
- I know that you can retrieve it if you destroy it but can anyone tell me for certain if you can get it back if you die with it..in the new wildy for example? Please and thank you! - 22.214.171.124 17:48, March 20, 2013 (UTC)
It is not equipable on purpose? 126.96.36.199 01:35, October 25, 2012 (UTC)
- Bonecrushers aren't equipable, either, so I'd say it's intentional. --User:Saftzie/Signature 17:46, October 25, 2012 (UTC)
I got a ghost ectoplasmator drop from an aberrant spectre and I had not gotten it from the 2012 halloween event but after the drop I was able to get the ectoplasmator from diango.188.8.131.52 20:03, December 29, 2012 (UTC)

You got lucky, haven't heard of many people getting it as a drop>

I must've gotten lucky as well, I was killing aberrant spectres in the smoky dungeon and got it as a drop. I can completely confirm that I did not partake in the halloween event.184.108.40.206 05:33, January 27, 2013 (UTC)
I just got one as well and have never been able to stand the halloween event. Glad I got it though because if i didn't I'd never have gotten one. Are they that rare of a drop?220.127.116.11 17:44, March 20, 2013 (UTC)
Rarity of drop
I got one from Aberrant Spectre's and I did not do the Halloween event for members. Can someone confirm that this is a very rare drop? I had two previous tasks and didn't get it, but got it on my third task. It doesn't seem a very rare drop, but more just "rare". Djpailo (talk) 08:32, June 15, 2013 (UTC)
- It is definitely a quite to very rare drop. Even with very rare drops you can be lucky. Also, whether or not you have done the Halloween event does not matter to get it as a drop. IP18.104.22.168 (talk) 08:39, June 15, 2013 (UTC)
- For those who are interested it got mine within 1335 abberant spectres, in that time I got 24 ghostly essance (three drops of 8), one champion scroll, as well as one peice of the ghost hunter set. I hope this helps with motivation. As commonly thought "very rare" items are considered anywhere from 1/500 to 1/1000, so also keep that in mind. (22.214.171.124 20:51, April 15, 2015 (UTC))
Members only drop?
The Ectoplasmator is marked as a member's only item. However, it is not marked as a members only drop on several monsters' page. Does this item drop on f2p servers? 2A02:A03F:54CE:6D00:5896:C50C:E111:1C6C 17:51, May 25, 2018 (UTC)
