In this guide i will tell you how to train herblore, what the fastest and most efficient ways are to lvl up to 99 and eventually prestige the skill. Herblore is the art of cleaning herbs and making potions out of them. The higher your lvl, the stronger the potions are you can make. Herbs drop from a lot of monsters, usually the higher the lvl, the higher the lvl requirement herbs they will drop, and/or the quantities of the herb. You can use the drop table guide to search for what monsters drop which specific herb. Note that Sinister keys can be used on the crystal chest at home, which give a lot of herbs. The skill point shop at home also sells herb boxes, which contain a lot of herbs. These 2 are a good way to start out your herblore training.
To make a potion you will need 3 items. A clean herb, a vial filled with water, and a secundary item. The secundary item you need is tight specific to this herb/potion.
In osrs you need to complete a quest, which brings you to lvl 3 herblore, a requirement to make your first potion. We do not have this quest and the first potion can be made at lvl 1 instead of lvl 3 herblore.
Below shows a table which potions you can make at which lvl, and what items you require. You'll see that the higher you lvl, the better potions you can make. The easiest way to train herblore is to start after you've collected some herbs, make only a few low lvl potions and move on to the next one, since the xp drops are so big, sometimes you only need to make a few potions before you can move to the next one. A very efficient way to make the same potion at a higher lvl is to make a bank preset with all of the items you need for a full inventory of options and put it under the quick load button, so you can one click refresh your inventory.
Mysterious herbs are customly added. They are required to make overloads, which are at the bottom of the table. Mysterious herbs are sold by the boss points shop, but also drop from a few high lvl PVM activities.
