How do you catch the Leafstalker Mantis?
There is a simple method that is effective in catching any bug in Palia, and that’s using standard smoke bombs. It’s a beginner-friendly tool that only requires clay and a sundrop lily to be crafted. But the most influential part of catching bugs is your belt. Yes, it can be used to hold smoke bombs as well as increase the chances of catching rare and epic bugs. In this case, we will recommend upgrading your beginner belt to a fine belt. To craft it, you will require the following:
- Bug-catching skill at Level 6
- Standard belt x1
- Fabric x2
- Iron Bar x3
Then, you can buy the recipe from Auni for 1500 gold and start the upgrade process on your workbench. Remember that the more you upgrade your belt, the higher the chance you will catch a bug. Meanwhile, you can also store more kinds of smoke bombs. Anyway, once you have the bombs and belt, head over to one of the locations that we mentioned. Locate the Leafstalker Mantis and bombard it with smoke bombs as soon as you see it. Also, make sure to time it right, since the Leafstalker Mantis will jump for a short distance and then briefly stop for a few seconds. Use that pause to your advantage, and you will be successful in catching it.
