A Defence potion is a potion made by using white berries on a ranarr potion (unf), requiring 30 Herblore, yielding a Defence potion(3) and 75 Herblore experience. A dose of Defence potion provides a temporary skill boost to Defence equal to 3 + 10% of the player's current Defence level, rounded down. This is less than the super Defence's boost of 5 + 15% of the player's current Defence level, rounded down.

After Barbarian Herblore Training, caviar can be added to a Defence potion(2), requiring 33 Herblore, yielding a Defence mix and 25 Herblore experience. A Defence mix has 2 doses, boosts Defence equal to 3 + 10% of the player's current Defence level, rounded down, and heals 6 Hitpoints.

A Defence potion(3) can be purchased from the Warrior Guild Potion Shop for 144 coins.

A Defence potion(4) is a reward from Jekyll and Hyde random events if a toadflax is given to Dr. Jekyll.
