Introduction

 

 

 

Hello, welcome to my first ever guide.

 

Herblore is a very misunderstood skill. It has a lot of uses, ranging from healing Hitpoints (Saradomin Brews.)

 

To concoctions to help kill vampryes! (Guthix balance.) Using this guide I plan to help you with,

 

 

 


  •  
    [*:2tjtuqz9]Reasons to train Herblore.
     
    [*:2tjtuqz9]Self efficiency.
     
    [*:2tjtuqz9]Gathering seconds (used to make potions) and comparing with the Grand exchange.
     
    [*:2tjtuqz9]Profit using Herblore.

 

 

 

You might need a high attention span for this guide, it is long!

 

Please, enjoy the guide!

 

 

 

Note:

 

I was inspired to write this guide from the guide (By Lavaownz, The Ultimate Guide to Herblore.)

 

that got lost in the Forums roll-back and is no longer readable.

 

My information and images is from myself, the help of Tip.it, the knowledge base and Runescape Wiki.

 

 

 

A choice

 

Before you wish to read this guide,

 

you must answer the following question if you are planning to train herblore.

 

 

 

Do you want profit or speed?

 

 

 

By choosing profit:

 

 

 

  • [*:2tjtuqz9]You gather most of your supplies yourself.
     
    [*:2tjtuqz9]You choose to use my guide.

 

 

 

The pros of that:

 

 

 

  • [*:2tjtuqz9]It all pays off in the end with spending next to nothing.
     
    [*:2tjtuqz9]Great satisfaction.

 

 

 

The cons of that:

 

 

 

  • [*:2tjtuqz9]It will take awhile to gather the supplies.
     
    [*:2tjtuqz9]It can get tedious at times. (Try to keep it as fun as possible!)

 

 

 

By choosing speed:

 

 

 

  • [*:2tjtuqz9]You buy all your supplies from the GE.

 

 

 

The pros of that:

 

 

 

  • [*:2tjtuqz9]It is fast!

 

 

 

The cons of that:

 

 

 

  • [*:2tjtuqz9]It will cost a lot.

 

 

 

Now decide what you are going to do, if you have a high income, (91 runecrafting or a high slayer level.)

 

you could buy your supplies, but you need to be able to suffer the loss of a lot of cash.

 

If you are buying your supplies, this guide isn't really for you. This is for the DIY'ers mainly.

 

 

 

The Basics & exp Rates

 

Lets get started with the basics.

 

 

 

To make a potion, you need a vial of water. You need your primary ingredient, which is, in most cases; a herb. You use your herb with your vial of water. Once this happens, you are given a Unfinished Potion. Or <name of herb> (unf).

 

 

 

Then you need your secondary ingredient, which depends on the potion it is.

 

(For example, you need a Toadflax Herb and a Crushed nest for a Saradomin Brew,

 

provided you have the level or assist from someone.)

 

 

 

vial_water.png > Herblore_toadflax.gif = Toadflax_potion%28unf%29.png > Crushed_nest.gif = Saradomin_brew.PNG

 

Vial of water > Toadflax = Toadflax potion (unf) > crushed birds nest = Saradomin Brew.

 

 

 

birds_nest.gif > pestlemortar.png = Crushed_nest.gif

 

Empty Birds nest > Pestle and mortar = Crushed nest.

 

 

 

pestlemortar.png

 

Another tool used in herblore is a Pestle and Mortar.

 

It is used for grinding up certain items for making up potions.

 

(These include: Bird nests, Chocolate bars, Goat Horns and other items.)

 

 

 

The Herbs

 

The herbs; of course herblore wouldnt be it without them.

 

Here is a list of the herbs used in Herblore. Also I have the exp rate for cleaning them from a Grimy form to a Cleaned form.

The stat restores

 

Here are the potions that are used to get your stats back to normal, so you can stay at a certain task/monster for a lot longer! The three most used there are the, prayer potions. (From a variety of many things, would be a very long list.) Super energy potion (For generally getting around without having to walk!) and Super restore potion.

Gods Potions

 

Here we are, the two potions named after RuneScape gods. (Not including Guthixs balance, as there is quests required for that one.) But here are the Zamorak and Saradomin Brews. Each with very different effects

 

 

 

For the Zamorak Brew:

 

Level 78 Herblore to make, Torstol and jangerberries needed to make. This potion gives 175 exp for making. The effects are; -10% Hit points yes, this potion takes away hit points, be careful when using this potion. Also takes -10% defence, but gives +15% strength, +20% attack and a nice +10% prayer.

 

 

 

For the Saradomin Brew:

 

Level 81 Herblore to make, Toadflax and crushed birds nest needed to make. This potion gives 180 exp for making. This potion is widely used by Boss Monster Hunters. It is a potion used to level 99 herblore. It decreases strength, attack, magic and range by -10%. It gives +20% defence and +15% of hit points. Used in duo with the super restore potion, its one heck of a combo!

 

 

 

herblore_relicyms_balm.gifpot_serum207.pngpot_guthixbalance.gifpot_blamishoil.gifSuper_Fishing_Explosive-1.gifpot_sanfewserum.gifpot_antifire.png

 

Other Potions

 

Here are the potions that dont fit in with the other groups, and are in a single group to themselves. These include: Relicyms Balm, Serum 207, Guthix Balance, Blamish oil, super fishing explosive, Sanfews serum and anti-fire potion.

 

 

 

For the Relicyms Balm:

 

Level 8 Herblore to make, Rogues Purse and snake weed needed to make. Gives 40 exp for making. Used to cure the disease effect. This potion is unlocked after completing Zorge Flesh eaters quest.

 

 

 

For the Serum 207:

 

Level 15 Herblore to make, tarromin and ashes needed to make. This potion gives 50 exp for making. A cheap efficient potion to make, yet it is debateable with some. It cannot be noted so it is hard to get rid of.

 

 

 

For the Guthix Balance:

 

Level 22 Herblore to make, Stat restore potion garlic and silver dust is needed to make. Gives 50 exp for making. It is used to help kill vampryes.

For the Sanfews Serum:

 

Level 65 Herblore to make, super restore potion, ground unicorn horn, snakeweed and nail beast nails needed to make. This potion gives 160 exp for making. It is a super restore, a anti poison and a Relicyms balm all in one. Three in one, very good, but, the nail beast nails, are hard to obtain.

 

 

 

For the anti fire potion:

 

Level 69 Herblore to make, Lantadyme and ground blue dragon scale needed to make. Gives 157.5 exp for making. Full protection against dragon breath. (Provided you have the anti dragon/dragonfire shield.) The effect lasts 5 minutes+, for each dose. You cannot pile the effect. (Drinking 4 dose of the potion for 20 minutes immunity, it won't work.)[/hide]

 

 

 

Useful Quests

 

Here is a list of Quests that can prove useful for Herblore.

 

 

 

  • [*:2tjtuqz9]Druidic Ritual This Quest is mandatory to unlock the Herblore skill. It gives you 250 Herblore XP which puts you to level three.
     
     
     
    [*:2tjtuqz9]Jungle Potion - Gives 775 Herblore XP upon completion. Great for starter Herblorists, also is needed for other quests that unlocks more in Herblore.
     
     
     
    [*:2tjtuqz9]Shades of Mortton - Unlocks the potion called Serum 207, a cheap costing potion, useful for levelling Herblore. Gives 2000 Herblore XP, which is also good for beginners. (Note you need level 15 Herblore to start this Quest!)
     
     
     
    [*:2tjtuqz9]Eadgars Ruse (Note, Death Plateau and Troll Stronghold, which gives two XP lamps both have 10,000 XP, great for herblore, are also required for this quest.) 11,000 Herblore XP and also unlocks the Goutweed storage room mini-game is unlocked, which can be fun.
     
     
     
    [*:2tjtuqz9]My Arms Big Adventure If you plan to farm your herbs this quest is highly suggested! It unlocks a herb farming patch which doesnt get diseased! Also a hefty 10,000 Herblore XP.
     
     
     
    [*:2tjtuqz9]One Small favour Another two XP lamps from this Quest, both aswell have 10,000 XP.

 

 

 

Obtaining Vials of water

 

Now, lets get into the gathering part of Herblore. You can buy vials of water from the Grand Exchange, but I will still include (cheaper) ways to obtain.

 

Vial of Water Price Graph.

 

 

 

There are three methods of collecting vials of water efficiently:

 

 

 

  • [*:2tjtuqz9]Shilo Village General Store.
     
    [*:2tjtuqz9]Ardougne General Store.

 

 

 

Shilo Village General Store

 

Here is the first (and in my opinion, the most efficient.) method. You will need to have completed Shilo Village Quest in order to do this method. I also recommend having Level 52 Summoning for the Spirit Terrorbird, also a few of its scrolls. (Tireless run.)

 

 

 

To get to Shilo for those unaware, Go to Ardougne docks, pay 30gp to go to Karamaja, then pay the cart driver 10gp to go to Shilo, east of which is the bank, west of which Is the general store. You can also easily get to Shilo if you have the Karamaja Diary 3 done, for the gloves which teleport you in the underground mines under Shilo.

 

 

 

So, you should wear light weight equipment; wear nothing that would weigh you down. I did as test;

 

 

 

I started at 18:06 with 0 vials of water, using Shilo general store. At 18:35 I had 1027 vials. (Please note I used the Terrorbird.) So, you could possibly obtain 2200 vials an hour. (If no distractions, I was chatting away occasionally.)

 

 

 

Ardougne General Store

 

Here is the second (I dont find this really good at all, but I shall still put it in.) method. You use the Ardougne General Store, in Ardougne, west of the south bank.

 

 

 

Wear same equipment as above in Shilo, and use Terrorbird and scrolls if possible.

 

 

 

I started at 19:02 with 1027 vials. (I again, used Terrorbird.) At 19:42 I had 1837 vials. Possibly 1600 vials per hour. Note: I disconnected at least three times, so it put on five minutes.

 

 

 

Obtaining the Herbs

 

Now for the most important part of Herblore. The Herbs! Whether you buy your herbs, farm or get them from drops; this is really the barrier of profit and loss in herblore. Although, some potions still need you to collect more items for profit. Yes, if you wish you can buy the vials and secondary ingredient, you either profit *very* small, or suffer a small loss. Its all up to you.

 

 

 

With the release of the Grand Exchange, both people are lazy to gather there things for herblore and it is hard to make a profit with potions. Before it you could easily. Now, not so much. But, thats why you need to DIY and get profit, be the unique person from the rest of the bunch!

 

 

 

If you wish to profit the most efficiently, I suggest you farm your herbs, and depending on the potion, buy the secondary ingredient, but if you wish to profit more by collecting them. Please go ahead.

 

 

 

So we are going to be looking at a few methods of gathering Herbs.

 

 

 

  • [*:2tjtuqz9]Farming. (By far the best!)
     
    [*:2tjtuqz9]Chaos druids. (Good for the low level herblorist.)
     
    [*:2tjtuqz9]Aberrant Spectre. (For the high level herblorist.)

 

 

 

In my opinion, these are the most three efficient methods. I will not be including the mini-games of herblore, as I believe they are not a very efficient method of gathering herbs.

 

 

 

Farming Route Mini-guide

 

Farming is what I think the fastest method to obtain herbs. (Besides buying them of course.) You can be sure you almost always profit, as usually you get more herbs in worth then the seed, for example: Toadflax seed is in the mid 200s, yet it has a very low death rate, and the herb is worth 2,000+ each! Talk about profit, right! I will provide with a mini-guide to farming with my route. (Note this route requires the Lumbridge Diary 3 finished for the Explorers ring, also quests: Ghosts Ahoy and My Arms Big Adventure.)

Chaos Druids

 

The 2nd method, this is mostly used by beginner herblorists, but there is one spot, which is the most efficient, but no one uses! Although you need 50 thieving, it is worth it to have it. It is in Ardougne, North West of the town.

 

 

 

2n1fh8j.png

 

 

 

In there, they are 4 spawns of chaos druids. (Level 13, 20 HP barely hit you!), they are one of the best herb droppers.

 

You dont need to bring anything in your inventory, but a macaw is good. Summon it when you get into the location.

 

 

 

Heres what I wear.

 

2u7yphk.png

 

Equipment:

 

Helm of Neit

 

Quest cape

 

Glory

 

Abyssal whip

 

Rune platebody

 

Rune defender

 

Black chaps

 

Barrow gloves

 

Dragon boots

 

Ring of wealth

 

 

 

Adjust the equipment to your levels and budget.

 

Once you get there, start killing. Unless you are a shockingly low level, you should have no problem killing them.

 

 

 

I recorded two trips. One with a wealth and one without, there is not much difference:

 

 

 

With Wealth:

 

e5i82e.png

 

Without:

 

300ecfs.png

 

 

 

Aberrant Spectres

 

The high level herb dropper, if you are a decent level, these are really simple to kill. The problem is; they are so crowed! But, in the smoking kills dungeon, its 95% of the time: empty! There can be cannoners at times, just world hop, or find a better spot in the room where the cannon cannot reach them.

 

 

 

I will be only focusing on the smoking kills spot; it is pretty much the same. But they dont attack you on sight. Plus, if you dont want to be paranoid with only 1 HP while fighting them, you need a slayer helmet. (The smoke effect dose NOT kill you.) But, if you have a laggy connection without a slayer helmet: Do not do this method.

 

You can also bring a Summon down here, spirit terrorbird for keeping extra herbs, or a macaw for better drops. I prefer a macaw.

 

 

 

Do get access you need to have completed smoking kills. Not a hard quest.

 

Heres the equipment plus inventory:

 

2i0q1zm.png

 

 

 

2e4xgxz.png

 

For it to work most efficiently, you should have your house in Pollnivneach.

 

 

 

Gathering seconds

 

The next main part of Herblore: the secondary ingredients. If you dont wish to gather these, you can buy them. It doesnt really matter. Not many people enjoy this kind of activities, but if you can keep on to it, means more profit for you! I am going to provide a list of the (main) secondary items, how to get them, with the most efficient method. If possible, Ill provide a amount that can be gathered per hour.

 

 

 

Eye of newt

 

Our first item; eye of newt. Used in the attack type potions, you can buy it from all herblore stores; I have found one herb store which is the most efficient.

 

 

 

You will need to have completed Enlightened Journey, and you must have unlocked the Castle war balloon route.

 

 

 

Youll be using the balloon route from Castle wars to Entrana, beside the Balloon at our destination, there is a herblore store, quicker then all the other herblore stores!

 

 

 

You will need light equipment. A normal log, (have 100 or so in bank.) cash, and its handy to have a few super energy restores in your bank.

 

 

 

I started at 18:29 with 0 eye of newts, at 18:38 I had 270. So you might be possible to obtain 2,500 eyes an hour. (Needs more testing.)

 

 

 

Unicorn Horn

 

The next item, Unicorns horn. Used in super anti poisons (ground up), also high level summoners will buy them for the unicorn stallion pouch. I will be using the Wild to kill Black Unicorns, and banking in Bounty Hunter.

 

 

 

You must be willing to go into the Wild, beware of Revs! Keep in mind that you must take stuff your only willing to lose, but you mightnt have a big problem with them.

 

 

 

33f9veg.png

 

 

 

I took the same equipment as in the chaos druid method.

 

 

 

Limpwurt root

 

These are a fairly annoying item to obtain, the only efficient way is farming them in the plant patch, if you plan to farm these, go back up to the mini guide on the farming route, and add four plant seeds and four extra super compost. The annoying thing is they dont have a very high yield.

 

 

 

Red Spider egg

 

I find that the best way to obtain these is using the spirit spider and the scrolls of it. You can also alchemy outside, (Edgevill for example.) I am not aware of any other faster methods.

 

 

 

Chocolate Dust/Bar

 

It is quite annoying and hard to obtain this item nowadays, with the release of the infinite stock; most shops have stopped stocking it! The only ok way is to use the RFD chest in Lumbridge basement. Note they are other people who might be trying to buy it as well, so it can be hard at peak times. World hop when you have bought out the stock. I am not aware of any other faster methods.

 

 

 

White Berry

 

To guide this item, I found it a pain in the rear. This item is very annoying to get to. Beware when collecting this. I used the Isafdar spawn. BEWARE OF THE TRAPS. This was my downfall. I lost 50+ HP trying to get to the spot! Food is needed in your bank. Try your best to have a spirit Terrorbird, its almost crucial. Instead of teleporting in the Elf town, its more efficient to use the Castle wars bank.

 

 

 

2rxw8xw.png

 

 

 

Toad Legs

 

The next item, toad legs, they arent really used in herblore much, more used in summoning for the Barker toad pouch. The best way to collect these is in Gnome Stronghold North west of the Grand Tree. Pick them from the ground in the swamp. You have to pull the toads legs off, be careful not to eat them!

 

Also, spirit Terrorbird, again, is one of your best friends for this. Cannot stress enough how well you get on with this summon, if you dont have it, get it ASAP!

 

 

 

2v3swm8.png

 

 

 

Snape Grass

 

In no doubt, this item is one of the most used herblore item; Snape grass. Can be tedious to come by if not using the right method. However, I find collecting them in WaterBirth Island, is quite the way to go. To do it right, you need lunar spells on. You need a decent magic level aswell. Level 72 or 73+ magic, you should use the level 73 spell because you gain more magic exp.

 

 

 

Bring runes of the spell, a water staff so you can take an extra Snape grass, a duelling ring for banking, this teleport is the best way to bank, using a glory is just a waste of a charge!

 

 

 

For the most efficient method to go about, collect Snape grass at the tip of the island, which is west of the boat, you will 99% of the time see a pure type account, training there so you know where you are. Just collect grass along the shore. Terrorbird is good for extra grass. Once your inventory is full, teleport to Castle wars, and repeat.

 

 

 

15ow3g9.png

 

 

 

Mort Myre Fungi

 

This is generally easy item to obtain, you need to have completed Priest in peril to get to the gate of Mort Myre, and have started Nature Spirit to gain access. You will need a silver sickle blessed, which the nature spirit alter can bless for you. You will need light weight equipment as well. Spirit Terrorbird, yet again saves you walking, so bring some scrolls.

 

 

 

When you get into the swamp, find rotten logs, there is a good spot with three logs a bit down the swamp. Operate your sickle, to cast a Bloom which allows you to pick the fungi, this time it is more efficient to bank in Canifis unless you are on Ancient Magicks, you can use a duelling ring to teleport to bank, then use runes for the Canifis teleport spell. Otherwise you should bank in Canifis.

 

 

 

Blue Dragon scale

 

Before I even start, do not do this method, only if you have 70+ agility. It is not efficient to go all around the long way. If you are 67 agility or so, and eat a summer pie or sip a dose of agility potion, ok. Bring light weight equipment, and a duelling ring

 

 

 

BRING A ANTIFIRE SHIELD!

 

These are found in Taveraly Dungeon; use the pipe beside you when you go down the ladder. Go in it, to end up in the blue dragons domain. Avoid contact with the mother (level 111) dragons, but they are usually been killed by other players. Go east and you will see the scales on the ground. Spirit Terrorbird isnt compulsory but it is still useful for extra scales, when you have your inventory filled, teleport to Castle wars, bank then teleport to Falador and repeat.

 

 

 

Levelling

 

 

 

This for levelling to 99 herblore, using as much DIY where it can be possible. For dealing with weather to buy or to collect secondary items, its really up to you. If you want more profit, go for collecting, if you dont care or mind spending cash, go for buying the secondary items.

 

 

 

1-38 Herblore

 

For the starting levels, try all you can, lamps from quests/randoms. Tears of Guthix and do Jungle potion aswell, at level 15 do Shades of Mortton. But Id try killing chaos druids and making potions with the herbs they drop. With the herbs you cant do anything with, either sell for some cash or keep for later.

 

 

 

38-45 Herblore

 

Now, for making prayer potions, you should farm your ranarrs, and collect your snape grass. Your getting awesome profit and a lot of exp.

 

 

 

45-55 Herblore

 

You can either switch to super attack potions, or stay at pray potions, its all up to you. You farm your irits, but you wont get much profit.

 

 

 

55-66 Herblore

 

Super Strength potions! These are brilliant to make. Farm your kwuarms and either buy or farm your limpwurt roots, limpwurts are annoying to obtain, I would try buying them in this case.

 

 

 

66-81 Herblore

 

You can either stay at super strength potions or move onto super defence potions. Cad. Herbs are good to farm but the secondary item, as I stated before are a pain. Buy them if you cant stand it like me. You can move onto other potions along the way, experiment, have a try at ranging potions if you want.

 

 

 

81-99 Herblore

 

Saradomin Brews all the way! The most efficient potion to make, but in terms of DIY we will be having a problem with Crushed Nests, you can try to collect them yourself, from a combination of Manage Thy Kingdom and Giant Mole hunting and trading in the claws and skins for nests, you can make some nice extra cash from the seeds. But, personally I would buy them, have a go at collecting if youre bored.

 

 

 

Toadflax is one of the best herbs to farm. Low death rate, high herb yield rate, and to top it all off, they are cheap! (200 coins~ each)

 

 

 

___________

 

 

 

If you manage to get 99 herblore completely from DIY, I cant even describe how awestruck I would be, reach for the goal!

 

 

 

Happy levelling!

 

 

 

Comparisons

 

 

 

This is for the comparison between DIY and just plain cash burning. You dont necessary need to DIY just because I told you so. You can see if you can afford spending based apon your cash per hour made.

 

 

 

To see if you can spend X amount on Y potion instead of DIYing.

 

 

 

New: I made a sheet that grabs the prices straight from the GE Database and it updates when the GE updates!

 

 

 

Click here for the Herblore GP/XP Sheet!

 

 

 

BROKE AT THIS MOMENT - WILL FIX ASAP.

 

 

 

Here is the manual way to do it for the potions you want to calculate but I didn't include:

 

[cost of herb] + [cost of second] + [vial of water] = [total cost of potion made]

 

 

 

[total cost of potion made] [sell cost of potion] = [total lost]

 

 

 

[total lost] / [XP of potion] = [XP / GP]

 

 

 

Now, to compare it to your amount made per hour.

 

 

 

First, check how many you make in 10 minutes. (This will work with most, if not all potions.)

 

 

 

[How many you make] x 6 = [How many made per hour.]

 

 

 

[Amount made / hour] x [XP of potion]

 

 

 

[Answer] X [XP / GP] = [Total money used per hour.]

 

 

 

I checked it myself with prayer potions, using the current market prices and using a example of 500 potions made per hour. I got 112,000 gp as my end result.

 

 

 

So,

 

 

 

If you make less then the total money used per hour (which Im just going to call the total for short now.) you should avoid buying the XP. Either move onto a lower potion which you can afford.

 

 

 

If you make more then the total, go for it, but DIY is always an option!

Wow, just by looking I can see this guide is great. :thumbup: Tbh, this guide reminds me alot about mine. The title too :lol:

 

 

 

Can't wait to read it.

 

 

 

Edit: I'll post my suggestions here as I read your guide.

 

 

 

Str pot is the only f2p pot.

 

You might want to mention theres tons of cannoners at abby specs, and you can bring a familiar.

Well written guide, keep up the good work, update the guide whenever possible.Time to post corrections:

 

"plant your herb seed and teleport using the ectophail."

 

"Go bank in Catherbuy Bank and teleport to Ardougne."

 

 

 

You could leave a bit of space in between the pictures and the text, when you refer to the farming route. I use a different farming route, but this is your choice so leave it in the guide.

 

 

 

When chaos druids get too crowded I head to the Yanille agility arena, home to chaos druid warriors. Take a sharp object( I use ddp), that you must use to cut the spiderwebs at the entrance. You need atleast level 40 agility , to be able to get to the warriors, but beware: IF you fail the obstacle you will fall down into a pit of venomous spiders, so be careful. The drops from the warriors are similar to those of the druids, you can bank relatively fast in Yanille and head for a new inventory.NEVER pray at the altar nearby the warriors, because you will drop in the spider pit below.

I can't see anything in there about levelling up, which is surely what a Herblore guide should be about. Other than that it is well written, but there isn't anything in there that can't be found in the KB or Tip.it guide other than the bit about monsters to kill for herbs. A levelling strategy for all costs (profit, break even, loss) would make it more useful.

 

 

 

I'll give it a 6/10 for now, there are a few grammar mistakes in there but it is well written and pretty easy to follow. :)

Ok, I'll do them corrections now, thanks. I find my route is very efficent, takes less then 7 minutes. Chaos druids in Ardy, I have yet to see another person there. I might add the yanille guide, but I'd rather get level 82 theiving first. (is that the level?) But thanks for the suggestion.

About levelling up, I might add that, but its hard to say about the costs, since (if) you are following the guide, its all DIY and the prices are always changing. Thanks for giving a honest opinion. :thumbup:

 

I plan to slowly update my 2nd collecting, go in more detail.

i could wish for you to make at least a small guide on what potions to make from what level and comparing the time used for secound with other potions around a level.

Great guide.

 

 

 

If I remember correct, Harralander Tar used to be a quick herblore money maker. I'm not sure if it is still good, but getting the tar from Cave Slimes/Warped Terrorbirds/Collecting and adding bought harralander then selling to Black salamander barrowers was an ok method. Does this still work?

 

 

 

Although I never gather my seconds, I can tell this is very helpful for people who do. Deserves AoW in my book!

Easily the best player made heblore guide around. Well thought out. I especially loved the way you layed out the potions section, grouping them in that way with the nice pictures above.

 

One small thing, you missed out the legends quest, it uses heblore in it to create the bravery potion.

Heh, Lavaowns guide is the much better one. But thanks for that.

 

Yeah, I forgot about the legends quest, i'll add that in soon.

 

 

 

Spirit terrorbird is good, but War tortoise is sometimes better. The time saved banking pays back for the super energies and the tortoise itself. A good example is whiteberries.

 

 

 

Pack yak... common sence there. :lol:

 

 

 

Maybe... but with the problem buying tortoises in the ge is a setback. Pack Yak, don't even suggest that to me, way out of my leauge! :-#

Mm

 

 

 

Well, I think the secondarys are one of the most essentials in a herblore guide. Those are what most people want to know how to get. With herbs, its easy to get a drop or buy from the GE. Seconds are usually out of most people's price range to buy in bulk.

I am planning to go in-depth with 2nds, for now I just gave a brief overview.

 

I will be doing more how many your can get /hr ect more detail if possible. I won't be doing any other methods besides the most effiicent one, I don't want to waste my time on something slow.

 

 

 

Thanks for the replies!

@ Kent/Pant/Sentry,

 

Just an idea.

 

Because the main process of "processing" skills [smithing/Herblore/Summon]

 

is to gather ingredients and make a product.

 

 

 

To compare Herblore to Summoning...

 

Charms are Herbs

 

Shards/Pouches are Vials w/ Water

 

Seconds are well... Seconds.

 

 

 

With the gathering of Charms/Herbs being the main part, there are a few places to get them efficiently, however...

 

Seconds are the wild card in the equation, which is where, in my experience, most people buy. But the people who gather/want to gather, need the places to gather them efficiently like the charms/herbs.

 

 

 

So, just my Two Cents, the Knowledge of Gathering Seconds, is as crucial to the skill as is the gathering of the main ingredients.
