The Herblore Guide
Herblore is a skill where the player mixes potions with the help of a vial of water, a herb and a secondary ingredient.
It is highly recommended that you train Farming before you start Herblore, as the majority of the herbs used will be gotten from herb seeds.
This guide will include the best methods to obtain herbs, second ingredients and what potions the player should aim to make. Remember that the guide is also ironman-friendly, meaning that all ironmen can take use of this guide. If you have any suggestions on improvements, please comment below.
Portable Wells: Create extra potions and 10%more xp
Vote Books: 50% increased xp for 15min/book
Botanist's Outfit: 1% bonus xp per piece
Purple Lumbridge: 2% bonus xp for 30min
Pulse Cores: 2%/core bonus xp for 10min
Bottle Brew (Perk): 25% Chance to save secondaries and 50% speed increase
Level 1-12: Attack Potions
Level 12-38: Strength Poions
Level 38-45: Prayer Potions
Level 45-88: Super Potions (Combat)
Level 88-96: Extreme Potions
Level 96-99: Overloads
Remember that you want to create potions that you will use to avoid dropping/selling potions. However, if you do have the ingredients to make potions that aren't in this guide, make them. It's better to take advantage of everything you have rather than getting rid of it.
The reason you only want to focus on Super Potions is because you will be able to easily upgrade them from super to extreme to overloads. This will simplify your leveling by a substantial amount as you don't have to hunt or look for secondaries.
Eye of Newt = Eye of Newt Pack (Shop)
Red spiders' eggs = Spirit Spider Scroll
Potato cactus = Fungal Mages
Ground mud runes = Patriarchs
Grenwall spikes = Grenwall Hunting
You may also look into Herb Burners if you have very high experience rates.
The best herbs to focus on while Farming are Avantoes, Kwuarms, Cadantines Lantadymes, Dwarf Weedsand Torstols. These will be your bread and butter as you can use them for both super potions, extreme potions and finally mix them all together into overloads!
To obtain them, I recommend Thieving from Master Farmers
Best of luck on your grind to 99/120 Herblore!
