Zahur chathead.png

Zahur is a herbalist in Nardah found in the building just north of the bank. She can clean noted or unnoted grimy herbs for 200 coins per herb. However, noted grimy herbs require the Desert Hard Diary. Having her clean a herb is a requirement for the Easy Desert Diary. She is involved in the Beneath Cursed Sands, helping the player to find the origins of the pox in Sophanem and creating a cure for it.

Decanting potions[edit | edit source]

Zahur will decant potions for free. Players can either talk with her or use her right-click Combine option. She will decant all the potions in the player's inventory, noted or unnoted, and the player may choose what dose potions. If the player does not have enough empty vials in their inventory to hold the requested potions, Zahur will automatically sell them the required number of vials at their current Grand Exchange price plus 2 coins each.

Unfinished potions[edit | edit source]

Upon completion of the Desert Hard Diary, or when wearing the Herblore cape, Zahur will make unfinished potions for you for 200 coins per potion. You can take noted clean herbs and vials of water and she will give you noted unfinished potions in return for 200 coins per potion. Right clicking her, after the Diary completion, will make the option to "Make unfinished potion(s)" appear, it will combine all the herbs and vials given that you have enough gp in the inventory. Going through the dialogue with her does not give an option to combine.

Cleaning grimy herbs[edit | edit source]

Zahur is able to clean grimy herbs. Right clicking her will show the option "clean", which will bring you into a confirmation dialogue asking if you'd like to have her clean your herbs for 200 gp each. This can also be accomplished by talking to Zahur and choosing "Please clean all my herbs." At first, she will only clean unnoted grimy herbs. However, if the player has completed the Desert Hard Diary, Zahur will clean noted herbs for the same price of 200 gp each.

Zahur cannot clean Jungle Potion herbs, claming she's "not very good at cleaning jungle herbs."
