    To be continue follow the red butterflies until you see an enemy with a peculiar name displayed over it. This enemy will have the name of the player he killed and the same red butterflies flying around him. This isn’t particularly a boss, just the enemy that killed the other player, usually one that’s a bit stronger than the average grunt. You can kill the enemy to get revenge and earn a special reward: sometimes money to buy items, such as eyeballs and coins, and some XP.

    Once you complete the Red Butterfly Lantern task, she will disappear from your world after being successfully avenged. You may come across more of these lanterns as you continue your journey through the different areas. If you’re feeling strong and want to take on enemies, it can be a great way to get some extra items and XP, but do so at your own risk.
