|Examine||An impling baby. Aaah...|
The Baby impling is an impling that can be caught in the Impetuous Impulses minigame, and is located throughout Puro-Puro and Gielinor. The player needs at least 17 Hunter to capture this type of impling with a butterfly net or a magic butterfly net, or 27 Hunter barehanded.
In Puro-Puro, empty impling jars are required to catch any implings, whether catching them by net or by hand.
In Gielinor, they can also be caught barehanded or while wielding any item, with or without an empty impling jar. Without an empty jar the 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, and Entangle can be cast on implings to prevent them from moving for different periods of time.
When the impling is finally jarred the player can either trade with Elnock Inquisitor or can free the baby impling from the Baby impling jar, which will leave an item behind. By trading with Elnock, the player can either get 3 impling jars for one baby impling jar, or, with 2 young implings and 1 gourmet impling, can get a can of imp repellent. Capturing a baby impling will grant the player either 18 (if caught on Puro-Puro) or 20 (if caught on RuneScape) Hunter experience.
Many players ignore these implings when encountered, even if they have the Hunter level to catch them, for obvious reasons related to the poor value of their drops. However, when a baby or young impling is allowed to continue without being caught, the respective spawn point will not generate a new impling until it is caught. Players looking for rarer implings would do well to catch any low level implings they see in order to encourage the spawning of higher level implings. The reverse is also true, that catching only higher level implings will result in mainly low level implings wandering around largely ignored.
There is a guaranteed respawn point in each of the four corners of the Puro-Puro maze, making them a viable target for training low level Hunter skill.
Location[edit | edit source]
Rarity[edit | edit source]
On the Gielinor surface, baby implings have a 20/100 chance to appear out of a low-tier invisible spawn. The same holds for the low-tier invisible spawns present in Puro-Puro. In addition to these however, there are also a number of fixed spawns in Puro-Puro that will always yield a baby impling.
For a more detailed breakdown of impling spawn mechanics, see the main article.
Hunter info[edit | edit source]
|Puro Puro XP||18 xp|

The chance of successfully catching a baby impling is between ~52% at level 17 and 100% at level 55.
Loot[edit | edit source]
At current Grand Exchange prices, opening a baby impling jar gives 733.00 worth of loot, on average. This means opening baby impling jars marks an average profit of -256.00 per jar, however this does not include loot from clue scrolls.
On average, one would profit −25,574.00 to get an easy clue scroll, and −12,787.00 to get a beginner clue scroll from baby impling jars at current Grand Exchange prices, excluding the rewards from the completed Treasure Trails.
