A magic box is a type of trap used in the Hunter skill. The magic box trapping technique is used to catch imps. With the required Hunter level, the player may set up a magic box. When an imp passes the trap, it may be caught, but only when the player is not standing on the trap.
If the prey is successfully caught, the magic box will enclose the imp inside the box. Doing this creates an Imp-in-a-box, which can be used to bank 2 items or stacks of items.
Adding bait (any bead) to a trap will increase the catch rate by +3%, while smoking a trap will increase the catch rate by +2%. Due to the low increase of the catch rate, most players believe that smoking or adding bait to traps doesn't justify the extra actions it takes.
Imp-in-a-boxes can also be used to store items while in the wilderness or pvp areas, provided you are not in combat and below level 30 wilderness.
