Erratic effigies are a reward from the Effigy Incubator Distraction and Diversion. This is an in-progress effigy that collects experience from Divination, Farming, Hunter, and Runecrafting. When training Divination, the only supported method of gaining experience that will fill the effigy is gathering energy from wisps. Alternative methods of gaining Divination experience such as weaving signs of the porter, crafting divine charges, and releasing protean memories will not fill the effigy. Similarly, training Hunter using protean traps will not fill the effigy either, nor will any experience gained from divine locations, or experience gained from Distractions and Diversions such as handing in Big Chinchompa butterflies or participating in Guthixian Caches. Training Runecrafting by crafting runes and siphoning from nodes in the Runespan fills the effigy, but interacting with the runesphere and helping the yellow wizard do not.
The effigy takes priority in your inventory over urns, meaning your normal urns will not fill simultaneously with effigies.
Erratic effigy function similarly to urns:
Erratic and volatile effigies (same skills) provide lamps whereas explosive and unstable effigies (same skills) provide stars. Lamps and stars provide the same amount of experience.
