Getting startedEdit

Make your way to the Wizards' Tower, which is south of Draynor Village and over a stone bridge. You will know you have arrived at the right place if you see level 9 wizards there. Climb the stairs, and go up to the 2nd floor[?]. Talk to Wizard Mizgog and ask him questions to find out that he needs your help. He will tell you that Grayzag's imps stole his beads and he wants you to get them back for him. He needs you to get:

To obtain the beads, you can buy them from the Grand Exchange for 8,894, get them from another player, or if you want to, you can kill imps. Imps can be found almost anywhere. One possible place, however, is on the island of Karamja, specifically on top of the Karamja Volcano. There are a few imps there, but they are guarded by level 14 scorpions, so if you're lower than level 29, look for imps around the outskirts of Lumbridge. Keep killing imps until you have all four beads on you. The imps will sometimes teleport, making them annoying and hard to kill.

A large number of imps can also be located in between the Ardougne Monastery and Tower of Life south of Ardougne.

Another place to find and kill imps is the southern entrance to Falador. Besides having around 3 imp respawns, it's a multicombat area, so you may enlist a friend to help you weaken the imps.

Note that the beads can be traded between players, and sold to stores. Many players will often pay high prices for beads to avoid the hassle of finding the beads themselves.

Once you have all four beads, return to Wizard Mizgog and give them to him to finish the quest.
