Examine An impling who likes magic. Magic!

The Essence impling is an impling that can be caught in the Impetuous Impulses minigame, and are located throughout Puro-Puro and Gielinor. The player needs at least 42 Hunter to capture this type of impling.

They could be caught with a butterfly net, magic butterfly net, sacred clay butterfly net, or volatile clay butterfly net.

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.

Unlike most other hunter creatures, players can use the spells Bind, Snare, and Entangle to keep an impling from moving further away; this could be useful when in Puro-Puro or while keeping the impling from flying over a body of water. This is done by right-clicking "Target" on the impling, and then click the spell in the ability book or action bar.

When the impling is finally jarred the player can either trade with Elnock Inquisitor or can free the essence impling from the essence impling jar, which will leave an item behind. The player can either get 3 impling jars for one essence impling or, with 3 gourmet implings and 2 earth implings, can get a magic butterfly net, or alternatively can trade 3 essence implings, 2 eclectic implings and a nature impling to receive a jar generator. Capturing an essence impling will grant the player either 160 (if caught on Puro-Puro) or 225 (if caught on RuneScape) Hunter experience.
