i get the in game message on limit and written that i received xp/bxp.

but...looking at the total xp counters, i get neither xp nor bxp when catching them.

anyone else experience this xpless butterflies? kinda the opposite of the butterflies of mad xp gains?

joke aside i really am not getting anything from them except a green message in my chatbox.

As Tren said, look at your lowest skill.. if you have 1 say 80 then the one with the
less xp in numbers will be where it goes.

Hope it ends up working.. its been ok for me.

Oh did you talk to the person above fally and turn off the butterflies in some way?
I dont know their name but they are at the crossroads above fally.. I saw in
another thread where this was discussed.

Sharon G, if you are not getting any XP from butterflies, it might be because talking to an NPC in a past Easter event turned off getting XP from the butterflies.

You could try talking to Memstix near the Taverly pub and see if he can turn on the XP from butterflies.

memstix states that members receive xp.

i haven't seen anywhere else that states if f2p get xp.

i caught all butterflies last night without seeing xp.

with all 99's i don't know which skill is lowest, if invention is counted as lowest or what. it is 120, but on f2p it is 1.

if f2p does not get xp, that would be useful info to see. when attempting to catch butterfly, a message could say members only.

By preference, the XP goes to your lowest NON MAXED skill.

Therefore, if you have 99 in every skill, but less than 120 in Slayer or Dungeoneering, then the xp will go to Slayer or Dungeoneering.

If you're not getting any XP or bonus XP anywhere at all, then you have probably turned butterflies off during a previous event.
