Wolpertingers are level 109 combat Summoning familiars which are part-rabbit, part-wolf. They grant an invisible +5 Hunter level boost. Wolpertingers also double the experience and yield when harvesting from any bush (grown in a bush patch) in the Farming skill, except for barberry seeds. Their Magic Focus special attack gives a +7 boost to Magic, roughly that of a Magic potion. Their size is also favoured over an arctic bear familiar if hunters do not mind the loss of the extra +2 boost.

During the Wolf Whistle quest, the player summons a Giant wolpertinger.

Prior to the Evolution of Combat, the wolpertinger had a passive effect which increased magic defence by 5%. This was later removed.[1]

Wolpertinger pouch[edit | edit source]

[view][talk]

Wolpertinger pouch is made by using a Summoning pouch on a Summoning obelisk with 203 spirit shards, a Crimson charm, a raw rabbit, and wolf bones in the inventory, and 92 Summoning. Making the pouch earns 404.8 experience points. Using the pouch to summon a wolpertinger gains 4.6 experience points, and costs 100 Summoning points. This is one of only two pouches that requires 2 tertiary components, the other being an Ice titan pouch.

Magic Focus scroll[edit | edit source]

[view][talk]

Magic Focus scroll enables the use of the Magic Focus special move for a wolpertinger. Using the pouch on a Summoning obelisk creates 10 scrolls.

Magic Focus[edit | edit source]

A player activating the scroll.

Magic Focus is the special move for wolpertingers, which will boost the player's Magic level by 7.
