The dragon impling is the fourth highest impling that can be caught in the Impetuous Impulses minigame, and are located throughout Puro-Puro and Gielinor. The player needs at least 83 Hunter (or level 80-82 with a hunter potion) to capture this type of impling. Capturing a dragon impling will grant the player either 390 (if caught in Puro-Puro) or 553 (if caught on Gielinor) Hunter experience. These are sought after by high-level hunters for the good profit.
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.
Upon jarring the impling, the player can either trade with Elnock Inquisitor for three empty jars (strongly advised against) or can free the impling from the dragon impling jar, which will leave an item behind.
It is recommended to use a net and jar since the net raises the probability of capture and the value of a dragon impling jar is usually greater than the average value of loot received.
Because many players ignore baby or young implings when encountered, the spawn rate of rarer implings is hindered. The faster a lower level impling is caught, the faster the respective spawn point will generate a new, possibly rarer, impling. Players looking for rarer implings would do well to catch any low level implings they see in order to encourage the respawning of higher level implings.
