Rainbow-Tipped Butterfly is one of the Epic bugs in Palia that is required for the Fairywind Bundle of Vault of the Gales Shrine in the Night Sky Island. The Fairywind Bundle requires four rare bugs that players have to collect and contribute to the bundle to complete. One of the Epic bugs is the Rainbow-Tipped Butterfly which players can find in the Morning and Day time.
In this guide, we’ll go over where you can find Rainbow-Tipped Butterfly in Palia.
Where to Find Rainbow-Tipped Butterfly in Palia
The Rainbow-Tipped Butterfly is the only dragonfly in the game that spawns far from the water area. It spawns only in the southwest region of Bahari Bay and can be found at during Morning and Day time. Since the spawn area of this dragonfly is extensive, it is not hard to find it. We found it several times in between the Pavel Mines and Pulsewater Plains areas.
How to Catch Rainbow-Tipped Butterfly in Palia
Catching the Rainbow-Tipped Butterfly is easier than other big bugs in Palia as it can be caught easily with the Standard Smoke Bombs. It gets stun easily with 1 to 2 hits of Standard Smoke Bombs but it is essential to throw the Smoke Bombs on it when it is flying steadily. If it is flying at speed, don’t waste the bombs on it as it will disappear and will require you to wait for it to appear again. You can also throw the Sticky Smoke Bombs on it to slow it down and then use the regular Smoke Bombs to stun it.
Once you have stunned the Rainbow-Tipped Butterfly, simply go near it and interact with it to pick it up. It will drop 0-14 Silk Thread as well on the catch. Upon catching the Rainbow-Tipped Butterfly, you can go back to the Vault of the Gales in the Night Sky Island to contribute it to the bundle.
