Treasure Butterfly, aka Flitter
Cost: 8 Gene Points

  • Causes the blue butterfly to drop pearls or a gem when you touch it.
  • You do not have to purchase the offer that he sells. The pearls or gem drop immediately upon touching him.
  • His name is Flitter.
  • Pearls are random from 1 to 10.
  • There is a 5% chance he will instead give you a gem. (see the Library post on Gems for more information)
  • Flitter has a cooldown of at least 10 minutes. If you see him, you won't see him again for at least 10 minutes. Set a timer.

Should I Get It?

This one is listed first because it should be everyone's priority. Gems represent the biggest increase to your damage, especially at lower levels. Even a 5% chance to get a gem makes this better than EVERY OTHER GENE IN THE TREE. The bounty of pearls you will receive along the way also contributes to this being the #1 gene. Get it. Don't even think about it. Just get it.


Come on Discord and give Flitter pancakes. It will help your luck getting more gems.
