Swamp tar can be found in Lumbridge Swamp and Mort Myre Swamp. It can also be collected from the small barrels on the Lady Zay on the floor below Captain Bentley. The player must start Lunar Diplomacy to have access to these barrels.
Uses[edit | edit source]
Swamp paste[edit | edit source]
It can be combined with flour to produce raw swamp paste, and then heated on a fire to create swamp paste. Swamp paste is a sticky item used in the Sea Slug quest as well as the Shades of Mort'ton and Fishing Trawler minigames.
Herb tar[edit | edit source]
When combined with a Guam, marrentill, tarromin or harralander, swamp tar becomes a tar used in the Hunter skill as bait ingredient while catching salamanders. This paste also doubles as ammunition for the salamanders when used as a weapon. 1 herb is needed for every 15 swamp tar.
The action of creating the herb tar can be used in tick manipulation, allowing you to do certain actions faster.
Lamp oil[edit | edit source]
Swamp tar can be processed at the home of the Chemist to turn empty lanterns into filled lanterns so that they may be lit.
