|Enemies to defeat:||
Mizgog's Little Helper.Edit
Make your way to the Wizards' Tower, south of Draynor Village over a stone bridge. Ascend the beam in the centre of the tower once to reach the first floor. Talk to Wizard Mizgog and ask him what's wrong to find out he needs your help. He will tell you Wizard Grayzag's imps have stolen his beads and wants you to get them back for him. He needs you to get:
Method 1: Killing imps.Edit
If you are planning an expedition to kill imps for beads, you might want to pack an activated impious urn, which will automatically collect the impious ashes of dead imps, in your travel kit. The urn can be redeemed for prayer experience after it has been filled with ashes.
A good place to kill imps is the volcano at Musa Point on the island of Karamja. There are many imps here but also scorpions, so it can be dangerous if you are not very strong. There are no scorpions on the west side of the volcano, and the imps of Karamja can be safely pursued there. Another safe place is the area between the Tower of Life and the Kandarin Monastery. There are 5-6 imps here and no dangerous monsters to contend with. However, the area is wooded and will require considerable running around to attack the imps.
Another safe place, open to free-to-play players, is the south entrance of Falador. Besides having around 3 imp respawns, it is a multi-combat zone so a friend could help you. There are also some around the outskirts of Lumbridge. Keep killing imps until you have all four beads on you. The imps will sometimes teleport short distances, making them very annoying to combat.
Another safe place, is the area between the Monastery south of Ardougne and the Tower of Life quest start.
For higher-level players, a good place to find Imps in large quantity is the resource dungeon inside the Karamja Volcano. If a player has a Dungeoneering level of 25, they may enter the dungeon and will find up to eleven imps wandering inside, along with fourteen lesser demons.
Method 2: Purchasing them from the Grand ExchangeEdit
Alternatively a player can buy all four beads in the Grand Exchange for 14193 coins.
If you do not want to/cannot buy the beads and do not want to have to spend a long time killing imps, it may be a good idea to start this before other quests and simply kill any imps you see on your travels.
Returning the beadsEdit
Once you have all four beads, return to Wizard Mizgog and give them to him to finish the quest. He will be overjoyed that you have returned his beads, and put them on his desk.
