Ectophial (empty) detail.png

The ectophial is a reward for completing the Ghosts Ahoy quest. Players can empty it, causing them to be teleported to the Ectofuntus outside Port Phasmatys. Once the player teleports, they will automatically refill it. The player cannot interrupt the refilling animation themselves, and is immune to damage for the duration; on PvP worlds, an attacker will still gain experience on a successful hit, but no damage will be dealt.

If the player loses the ectophial, they can get a replacement from Velorina in Port Phasmatys (must wear a ghostspeak amulet or Morytania legs 2 or better) or purchase it from Perdu for 4,600 coins. Claiming a replacement from Velorina will give the player a full ectophial. Claiming an ectophial from Velorina if the player already has one will give an empty one instead, which the player first has to fill at the Ectofuntus before they can use it.

The ectophial's teleport animation

It can be used to quickly escape from fights because it is easy to replace, costs nothing, and is a one click teleport from your inventory. It also only takes up one space, as opposed to rune-based teleports, which take up at least two. It is also a popular method of transportation when using fairy rings, as it is just north-east of fairy ring ALQ.

Like most teleport items, the ectophial does not work past level 20 Wilderness.
