Type Scroll
Name Scroll of butterflies
Icon Scroll of butterflies.png
A scroll that surrounds its user with a flight of beautiful butterflies.

Reading a scroll of butterflies creates a mass of friendly butterflies.

This scroll is mutually exclusive with the scroll of fog; only one of the two scrolls may spawn in any given game.

Tips and Tricks

  • Butterflies are great at blocking attacks; though they are evasive, for better or worse (monsters with ranged weapons may miss your butterflies entirely and hit you anyways, for example).
  • Butterflies may also distract enemies, and swapping places with one will allow you to disengage without fear of attacks of opportunity.
  • Like all summons, they can be affected by a scroll of immolation, but their sporadic movement means that you always run the risk of taking a few fiery explosions to the face.


  • In 0.30, scrolls of butterflies will alternate with scrolls of summoning (rather than scrolls of fog). Also, the scroll will create more butterflies and knock back nearby enemies.
  • Scrolls of butterflies were introduced in 0.29. They replicate the effects of the removed spell Summon Butterflies, though the scroll spawns more butterflies.
