Imp repellent is a potion used when hunting implings. It has two uses:
- It helps prevent other imps from pick-pocketing the player. If an imp is successful in its picking and not repelled by imp repellent, it will free one of the captured implings you currently have on you. A higher level in Thieving will prevent most, if not all, attempts of an imp successfully pick-pocketing you.
- It can be used on the lamp oil still in the chemists' house in Rimmington. After doing so, the player can use a butterfly jar on the lamp oil still to turn it into an impling jar.
Players can get a vial of imp repellent from Elnock Inquisitor by trading him these:
Imp repellent can also be made by players. The items needed are:
First, the player must use the cooked anchovies on the pestle and mortar, creating 8 anchovy paste, then use the sieve on one of the anchovy paste, creating a vial of anchovy oil. Finally, the player must add the flowers to the vial of anchovy oil to create a vial of imp repellent. Doing this grants 5 Herblore experience.
