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

Farming grimy snapdragon 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 6-14 herbs, but the norm is five to eight herbs per patch, so players can expect an average of 7.5 herbs each patch. There is also a 10% chance herbs will succumb to disease and die.

Players should have eight snapdragon 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 supercompost, but it will make the profit per patch 16,283, thus 130,264 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.
