Description A morphously blue butterfly. It can give milk and dole out wisdom. Some skill(s) may be required. Butterflies usually like to be massaged first.

A Butterfly is a free flying in-game insect that can be found in most regions. Unlike piggies, a butterfly does not require feeding.

A butterfly gives milk which can be changed to into Cheese. A Butterfly Milker will allow you to collect milk from butterflies in your home remotely. You need to be skilled in Remote Herdkeeping to use a Butterfly Milker.

Butterfly Eggs hatch to give Caterpillars which grow up into Butterflies.


Actions

Interacting (milking, massaging, etc) with a Butterfly is probably one of the most oft-complained task in the game. The easiest way to accomplish this is to use the keyboard instead of the mouse.

Steps:

  • When the butterfly flies above your head, press space bar to jump up;
  • Press enter whilst in mid air when the butterfly is selected (outlined in blue);
  • Then, use the keyboard to go up/down to select an action, or use the keyboard shortcuts which are:
    • "g": Massage
    • "l": Milk
    • "n": Sing

Massage

Name

Milk

"You milked a Butterfly. The butterfly responds to your firm yet gentle touch by excreting several drops of its most precious essence. Conveniently, the butterfly also has a vial handy for holding said essence."

Sing

  • Singing to a butterfly gives you a mood and XP boost. This however incurs a significant energy cost so care should be taken.

Trivia

The Glitch butterfly is mostly likely based on the Blue Morpho found in Central and South America. They have wingspans ranging from 3 to 8 inches.
