Decanting

From Old School RuneScape Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Decanting is the method in which a player combines partially full potions of the same kind to produce one full potion and one partially empty potion. For example, decanting a potion containing 3 doses and another containing 2 doses yields one full potion (4 doses) and one partially full potion (1 dose).

Occasionally it is required for potions to be in 2- or 3-doses, rather than 4:

Players can create 2-dose potions either by decanting two 1-dose potions, decanting two 3-dose potions, or decanting a 4-dose potion with an empty vial.

Decanting NPCs[edit | edit source]

There are two NPCs, Zahur in Nardah as well as Bob Barter in the Grand Exchange, who can decant potions for players for free, only charging them if they did not have enough vials while decanting into smaller doses. The player may decant any potions (noted or unnoted) into potions with any doses.

Although Bob Barter is available in free-to-play worlds, his decanting option is only available for members.

You can now split potions as follow:
  • 4-dose potion + Empty Vial = 2 2-dose potions
  • 3-dose potion + Empty Vial = 2-dose potion and 1-dose potion
  • 2-dose potion + Empty Vial = 2 1-dose potions

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Previously, NPCs could only decant potions into 4-dose potions. The option to select other dose sets was added in an update on 27 September 2018.
