Examine A cheeky little imp

Imps are a type of low-level monster with the appearance of a small, red demon. They are unique in that they can be found wandering long distances over RuneScape Classic. They also drop the beads needed for the Imp Catcher quest. They are not usually killed except by those looking to complete the quest or obtain a chef's hat to access the Cooking Guild.


These locations are approximate and are areas that imps tend to be frequently found. Imps can generally wander further from their respawn points than other non-player characters.

  • Draynor Village - Near the cert exchange stalls (1 spawn)
  • Edgeville:
    • Around town and sometimes the forest to the east (1 spawn)

        • West lawn (1 spawn)
        • North lawn (1 spawn)
