"Brew" redirects here. For other uses, see Brew (disambiguation).

A Saradomin brew is made by mixing toadflax and a crushed bird's nest in a vial of water, giving 180 Herblore experience. This requires level 81 Herblore.

A Saradomin brew temporarily raises Hitpoints by 15% + 2 and Defence by 20% + 2, both rounded down. It temporarily lowers Strength, Attack, Magic and Ranged by 10% + 2. It can heal above the player's maximum Hitpoints level.

They are primarily used for healing whilst using prayers and super restore potions — used carefully, they restore far more hitpoints per inventory slot than any other item other than purple sweets. Saradomin brews are often used when fighting bosses, player killing, and in minigames such as the TzHaar Fight Cave. Its ability to heal above the maximum Hitpoints (similarly to anglerfish) as well as providing a slightly higher boost than a super defence potion also make it useful for tanking.

To offset the losses to offensive stats inflicted by a Saradomin brew, players may use a 3:1 ratio of Saradomin brew to super restore in order to restore the lowered stats for three doses of a Saradomin brew, or four if the stats were boosted beforehand (through a super combat potion, for example).

Mixing a Saradomin brew in the Falador east bank is needed to complete the elite Falador Diary.

Hitpoints per dose[edit | edit source]

One dose of a Saradomin brew heals and can boost Hitpoints beyond a player's current maximum. The amount of Hitpoints is based off a player's base Hitpoints level. The formula is floor(lvl * 15% + 2).
