Sara Brews running dry? Finding Overloads underwhelming? Never fear – in this herbilicious new update, we’re introducing a whole cabinet full of new potions, power bursts, and even bombs for you to mix up on your journey to Herblore 120!

For those of you who are unfamiliar with how levelling in RuneScape works, this means that we’ve raised the level cap for Herblore from 99 all the way to 120, and there’s plenty of new content for you herb-heads to enjoy. Let’s take a closer look…

Primal Extract

Primal extract is a mysterious sort of goop found in the fruits of Anachronia. To get it, you’ll need to smush up avocadoes, dragonfruit, golden dragonfruit, guarana, ciku fruit, carambola, lychees, or mangoes.

You’ll need a lot of primal extract on your way up to 120 Herblore – so we recommend training Farming at the same time to maximise your fruit-farming abilities.

  • Super Cooking Potion (3)
  • Primal Extract
  • Beak Snot
  • That’s more potions than you can shake a pestle at – but there’s one more we’d like to talk about before you jet off on your herby adventures.

    Blessed Flask

    Only the most devout herblorists get access to the Blessed Flask, a truly divine item. Making this flask is no simple endeavour. You’ll need to use some extremely high-end ingredients, including Harmonic Dust, and the process is an arduous one.

    But we think you’ll agree that it’ll all be worth it when you come out on the other side with a high-level untradeable item that restores an absolutely godlike 500 Prayer points with each use. The flask is charged with Extreme Prayer potions, which you presumably chug all at once when you use it. Bottoms up!
