Overview[edit | edit source]

Main article: Herblore training

No herb patches are available in the starting area. Players will have a pestle and mortar included in their starting equipment. A player may wish to wear an amulet of chemistry while mixing potions for a 5% chance of obtaining (4) dose potions instead of (3).

Herblore is modified by two tier 1 relics.

Training[edit | edit source]

The most useful potions to create for training purposes are the prayer potion, super attack, super strength, super defence, super restore, and saradomin brew. Alternatively, players may train by creating herb tar although it will be difficult to obtain enough swamp tar to sustain this method.

Water-filled vial packs may be purchased in the starting area from Jiminua's Jungle Store or Obli's General Store, see additional sources.

ZahurDesert may be paid 200 GP per item to clean herbs and create unfinished potions.

Obtaining herbs[edit | edit source]

Herbs are most easily obtained in the starting region from the Herbiboar hunter activity on Fossil Island. Otherwise players will be limited to uncommon monster drops until they are able to unlock additional regions with herb patches or monsters with more common herb drops.

Herb patches[edit | edit source]

Maximum: 6

  • Asgarnia, Kandarin, and Morytania.

Minimum: 0

  • Any combination of Desert, Fremennik, Tirannwn, or Wilderness
