The pirate impling is an impling that can be caught after completing the quest Rocking Out. Level 76 Hunter is required to catch this impling.
They could be caught with a butterfly net, magic butterfly net, sacred clay butterfly net, or volatile clay butterfly net.
In Puro-Puro, a net and empty jars are required to catch any implings.
In Gielinor, they can also be caught barehanded or while wielding any item, with or without an empty impling jar. Without an empty jar player will immediately receive the loot from the impling, instead of the impling itself.
Once these requirements have been met the player simply needs to click on the impling, and the character will attempt to catch it, though there is a chance of failure, in which case the character will continue trying to do so until it is caught. Bind, Snare or Entangle could be cast on implings to prevent them from moving for different periods of time.
They are plentiful inside the Trouble Brewing minigame - however, they cannot be taken out of the game as pirate impling jars. They must be looted inside the game, and they give game items instead of regular loot.
Catching one in Trouble Brewing gives 15 experience, catching one in Puro-Puro gives 350 experience, and catching one in Gielinor gives 497 experience. Players who have completed Pieces of Hate receive 'improved' loot from pirate implings.
