Can someone make a new clip of the new teleportation animation? Gundoggy

Somehow I have an empty ectophial. should i upload the pic? also should we mention that if you worship the ectofuntus too quickly after using it that it may not refill? --75.193.145.49 17:58, 11 April 2009 (UTC)

Last month while I was doing farm runs, I also dashed off without refilling my ectophial. Not sure if that was a bug or whether or not it's been fixed...anyone know?

If you do anything between the time you appear and the time it's refilled it will remain empty. Remember: Its not automatically filled, your character will automatically walk to the ectofuntus and refill it. This takes a second or two, enough time to move away.

Empty Ectophial[edit source]

Should we add an empty ectophial page onto the wiki? --Quest point cape.png Andy08642 Talk 01:14, November 29, 2009 (UTC)

Empty ectophial[edit source]

It would be a smart idea to add the fact, that the ectophial can be empty. The same thing happened to me, when I emptied it and than rapidly ran away.

Challenge the excelent emergency teleport paragraph[edit source]

Someone needs to explain how exactly this is an excellent emergency teleport other than the fact that it's a one click teleport. The end point is near but not close to a bank so if someone is coming in low on life and posioned they run into the city, passing through a gate, and then get to the bank on the other side of town. It's quite possible that in this type of situation the player could die, if they don't die in teleport, which brings the fatal flaw it's value is very low which makes it typically an item not kept on death. This will leave the recently dead player half way around the world with a limited time to get back to a fairly remote area that they just lost there quick transport too. From my perspective there are three other quick teleports that are better than the Ectophial: Teleport to house tablet, Varrock teleport tablet, and Falador/Lumbridge teleport tablet. The house tablet puts you right at your house portal so all you have to do is step through it to remove posion. The portal may or may not be close to a bank but with the ability to add other transport options to your house you can easily get to one fairly quickly. Varrock teleport tablet puts you with in 10 seconds of two banks and is very easy to get back to if you don't make it. Given the ammount of traffic at this teleport site it's quite possible that the gravestone will be blessed before anything disappears giving the player up to an hour to get back. The Falador/Lumbridge teleport tablets are selected based on where you will end up if you die. Here if you die in teleport you'll spawn either right on top of or with in 15 sec of your gravestone.

From my perspective all three of these are better options than the ectophial which, with the issues pointed out about the ectophial, means that the ectophial is at best a marginal acceptable emergency teleport that can be replaced for a couple thousand gold or a little work in a POH.

Agreed but I use explorer's ring as you in invulnerable during teleport and I accidentally click 1 click tele all the time Smile and, if I were poisoned and die on way to bank, people would repair/bless my grave as the cabbage patch there receives a lot of traffic too. I say reword the paragraph to say it is good but other methods are better. Full Slayer Helmet! Evil1888 Talk A's L Dragon Platebody!

I do not have an ectophial, And need it for Herb runs.

I've searched my bank for 'ecto' and 'empty' and nothing (except ectotokens and empty nets ect.)

When i talk to the person that is supposed to give it back shes just talking with these chat options

'Do you know where this woman can be found?'

'If it was such a long time ago, won't she be dead already?'

Any help?

Drop/Destroy?[edit source]

I did the Ghosts Ahoy quest yesterday, or whatever it's called, and got an Ectophial. Mine says "destroy", but the article says you can drop it. Are all ectophials destroy-only, or just those after a certain date? Lukeno94 (talk) 15:56, October 31, 2012 (UTC)

After the 2009 update, all ectophials are now destroy-only. I think the wording of the section might be a little confusing. Leave me a message :) Annarelda Hiscores 06:25, November 1, 2012 (UTC)

Bug?[edit source]

The wiki page said that the auto-filling cannot be interupted now after a certain update. Well, my ectophial did not auto-refill somehow, why is that?  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 95.45.32.77 (talk) on 01:35, January 2, 2015 (UTC).

If you spam click away while teleporting, it is possible to break the auto-refilling sequence; it's been like that for as long as I can remember. IP83.101.44.209 (talk) 05:02, January 2, 2015 (UTC)
