Bug Catching


Garden Mantises can be found all along the coast of Kilima Lake in Kilima Valley, including the Whispering Banks, Fisherman's Lagoon, Remembrance Beach, Gillyfin Cove, and south Leafhopper Hills.

There is also a 5% chance to spawn a Garden Mantis when collecting Emerald Carpet Moss and Sundrop Lilies in these areas.


Although they can also occasionally be found by Foraging, Garden Mantises spawn naturally along the coastline of Kilima Lake. Their bright green color helps them blend into the grass, making them somewhat difficult to spot.

Garden Mantiss are alerted by nearby player movement and Smoke Bombs and will hop away a short distance before briefly pausing.


Garden Mantis does not grant any Silk Thread when caught. There is a chance Garden Mantis will grant an Anemone Flower Anemone Flower when caught.
