The Ectophial is a reward for completing the Ghosts Ahoy quest. Players can empty it, causing them to be teleported to the Ectofuntus outside Port Phasmatys. Once the player teleports, he/she will automatically refill it if you do not interrupt the action by clicking elsewhere. Make sure your Ectophial has been filled before leaving.
Following an update, players who have completed Ghosts Ahoy can return to Velorina and receive multiple Ectophials so that players who use the item frequently can have a place holder in their bank so its position is unchanged when used. This update is also useful because if an Ectophial is lost on death or left unfilled after use, the player can simply use their second Ectophial to return to Port Phasmatys and pick up another one.
It is widely used in fights to escape because it is easy to replace, costs nothing, and is a one click teleport from your inventory. It also only takes up one space, while other teleports usually take up at least two. It is also a popular method of transportation when using fairy rings. It is a free teleport that is close to a fairy ring (just to the south west). Ectophial does not work past level 20 Wilderness.
