Dr Jekyll is a random event in which Dr Jekyll appears and urgently asks the player for help. If talked to, he requests a clean herb of the player. If the player has a herb in their inventory, he will take it and give them a potion, but if the player has no herbs he will give the player a Strength potion (2) before disappearing. He will not accept noted herbs.

Dr Jekyll transforms into Mr Hyde.

The potion Dr Jekyll awards depends on the herb the player happens to be carrying. If the player has multiple herbs, Dr Jekyll will request the highest level herb[1].

Changes[edit | edit source]

Date Changes
13 October 2016
(update)

The Jekyll random event can now ask for a clean torstol if you have one.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The event is a direct reference to the mystery novel Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson. It is about a doctor who created a potion, splitting himself into two distinct personalities. He existed as the kind, gentle Dr Jekyll, and the fearsome, malevolent Mr Hyde.
  • If a player were to receive this random event underwater, Jekyll would be wearing diving gear.
  • Prior to the update to randoms, if ignored, Dr Jekyll would turn into Mr Hyde (level 14-159, depending on the player's Combat level) and attack the player with Melee. If killed, he would drop a potion, similar to if he was given a herb. However, sometimes he dropped an empty vial. Killing him could sometimes be more profitable than giving him a herb, as he could possibly drop a Super restore potion (4).
