Insect Catching Tournament

Entering the Tournament

Protip: Take your necklace off to greatly decrease the rate at which your net will break.

Head over to Piet Weapon Shop (49,28) and speak to Gunnar. Speak to him about "Enter Insect Tournament". He will give you your first Insect Net and allow you entry to the Insect Grounds. If you Speak to him about "Enter Insect Tournament" again he will sell you additional nets.

Catching the Insects

There are four locations which you may catch Insects. Each location contains 5 different types of insect. You must wear your Insect Net to catch them.

They will run away from Aislings and they move quite fast so here are a few tricks to consider:
Use skills. Any non-weapon based skills that deal damage will work.
Don't try to follow them every tile. They may reach a wall or corner and "freak out". Simply stand still and hold spacebar as they pass infront of you. You should eventually catch them.
Bring friends. The Insects can get stuck if you heard them anti-clockwise but having a friend or alternate character stand near a corner will create a box capable of trapping them as you swing away.

Remember to repair the nets regularly as they have low durability.

Here are the locations of the Insect Hunting Grounds and the Insects you may find there.

* Unless you have a ton of Health and Mana (At least 600,000/300,000) I would recommend getting the Double Bonus Exp-Ap and hunting experience instead of the Beetle Juice.

I personally like to get Leafhopper on any character that can't ao suain. Then I get Guardian Ant Tunnels for the free SW21 or "Medenia world map" (Lost Ruins) teleport every 4 hours. After that I just get the Random Gift Box. If the character can't ao poison you should consider Fungus Beetle Extract too.

You will receive the legend Legend Mark:

And some Experience and Ability:
Level 40-59 = 65,000,000 Experience
Level 60-79 = 70,000,000 Experience
