This guide assumes 8.8 herbs from each patch, thus 70 (70.4) herbs. Your profit per hour may vary depending on the survival rate.

Farming grimy ranarr weed can be a very profitable way to spend a few minutes at a time. Magic secateurs help increase profits slightly due to the 10% boost to crop yield. Generally, good harvests yield 6-15 herbs, but the norm is six to ten herbs per patch, so players can expect an average of 8.8 herbs each patch.

Players should have five ranarr seeds, some runes, and a means of teleportation. Then, players can start their herb run at any herb patch withdrawing any additional supplies needed from the tool leprechaun. If players have access to the Lunar Spellbook from Lunar Diplomacy, Fertile Soil (83 Magic) can be used in lieu of Ultracompost, but it will make the profit per patch 12,778, thus 102,224 total. Also, Spellbook Swap can be used to access the standard spellbook and Trollheim Teleport, but it requires 96 Magic and Dream Mentor.

After planting, a player can move onto the next patch in any order. An example of a herb run is provided below.

  • Use the Camelot Teleport and run east to the Catherby herb patch, or use the Catherby Teleport and run north to the patch.
  • Cast Ardougne Teleport and run north-east, or use the Ardougne cloak teleport to get to the patch instantly.
  • Empty the Ectophial to Port Phasmatys and run west of the undead farm to the patch.
  • Cast Trollheim Teleport and use the Agility shortcuts to the west continuing downhill and through an area filled with aggressive trolls and into Troll Stronghold. Run south through the stronghold and to a door in the south-west, and then go north to a ladder. Climb it to get to the patch. Alternatively, use a stony basalt to be teleported next to the shortcut up to the farming patch (requires completion of Making Friends with My Arm.
  • Use the cabbage port option on the Explorer's ring to teleport to the patch south of Falador.
  • Teleport to the Hosidius patch with Xeric's Talisman to Xeric's Glade, Tithe Farm minigame teleport, or skills necklace to woodcutting guild.
  • Teleport to Weiss patch with Icy basalt.
  • Teleport to Farming guild patch via Skills necklace or Fancy jewellery box in POH.
