Implings are Hunter creatures that may be caught via the impling netting method. They feature in the Impetuous Impulses minigame in Puro-Puro, but may also appear across Gielinor.

In Puro-Puro, a net and empty jars are required to catch any implings. They can be caught with a butterfly net, magic butterfly net, sacred clay butterfly net, or volatile clay butterfly net. Jars can be exchanged and bought from Elnock Inquisitor in Puro-Puro or generated with a jar generator. In Gielinor, they can also be caught barehanded and without an empty impling jar, allowing players to catch implings without having to run back to the bank to get a net and jars.

Implings have the ability to fly over any body of water or lava, but not over obstacles that are labelled with a line on the minimap. They will occasionally teleport to a nearby area. They can sometimes spawn inside some thick walls, for example the wall east of Taverley that runs north to south. This would make them impossible to catch, and potentially be considered a glitch if not for their ability to teleport. They can be found even in some isolated areas, such as Runecrafting altars.

Players can use the spells Bind, Snare, and Entangle to keep an impling from moving further away. This can be useful when in Puro-Puro, or to keep an impling from flying over a body of water. Being under the effects of an aggression potion will attract nearby implings to the player. Unlike butterflies, catching implings barehanded does not require a certain Agility level, but having a higher Agility level results in a higher success rate.

Should the player not wish to encounter implings spawning in Menaphos after unlocking them, they can change their preferences at the impling collector in the centre of Menaphos.

Types of implings[edit | edit source]

A wandering impling roams around the large wheat field in Zanaris. He cannot be caught, but he introduces players to the Impetuous Impulses minigame in an eccentric manner and will show players the location of the two other portals outside of Puro-Puro.

Another visually identical impling, Immenizz, can be found near the centre of Puro-Puro. He will explain briefly why implings might be hiding what humans may want. Fairy Aeryka is found near the wandering impling, and she will also give her version of what implings are, and what is in Puro-Puro.
