Level 1 to 99 herblore guide

Introduction

Herblore consists of cleaning herbs obtained from various methods such as Farming or PvM'ing and mixing the cleaned herbs into vials of water in which you add a secondary ingredients different to every potion.

Obtaining Herbs

There are a couple of ways you can go about gathering herbs in Xeros.

The most common way would be through the Farming skill.

Another way to obtain herbs is through PvM. Slayer is the most common way of obtaining herbs, as most of the assigned task monsters are notorious for dropping them.

Buying the Herb Sack from the Slayer Shop is an ideal investment as it can hold up to 50 of each clean herb in the sack, making for longer trips at tasks.

Cleaning herbs

Make sure you have grimy herbs to clean them. The clean ones, are already cleaned and ready for use.

Cleaning herbs is an easy way to train Herblore at lower levels.

To clean herbs, simply left-click on the grimy herb, if you have the level to do so.

Obtaining Secondaries

Non-ironman players

The easiest way to obtain secondary ingredients as a non-ironman player is via the shop at ::skill

The shop can easily be accessed through talking trading Zahur, who can be found in the northwest corner of the building.

TIP: Another thing to note about Zahur, is that you can use noted clean herbs on him, with GP and noted vials of water in your inventory, and he will turn the herbs into unfinished potions for a cost.

This is a lot faster and more cost effective than manually cleaning them yourself.

How do I obtain Overloads?

Overloads are obtainable through chest rewards and can be bought from the NPC named "Supplies" at ::dz, ::lz or ::oz for 1m gp each.

Ironmen can also make the potion by having all 3 divine potions, 1 clean torstol and 1m cash in the inventory. Use the torstol on the divine ranging/magic potion.

What are Divine Potions, and how can I obtain them?

Divine Potions are “normal” potions, except the difference is your stats do not drain over time like they would with a normal sip of the potion.

**To note - you do incur 10 Hitpoints of damage when drinking Divine Potions**

The easiest, static way of obtaining Divine Potions is via Chamber of Xeric. You have a chance of obtaining them from a Common Raids Key.

How to make

You obtain Crystal Dust through Crystal Slayer. Use Pestle and Mortar on the divine shards and you'll get 4 crystal dust for each 100 shards.

Then use 4 Crystal Dust per Potion and it will turn into a Divine version of the Potion


The current Potions you are able to turn into Divine are:

Super Combat

Ranging Potion

Magic Potion
