1.0 [Introduction]

During the reading of this guide you should learn how to maximize your profit from one of the most annoying skills in the game Herblore. The best thing about this skill is many people are willing to pump lots of money into this skill for quick and easy exp, this is where you come in. By expending that little time that someone else does not want to do you can make lots of money very fast.


2.0 [Vials]
The Requirements and suggestions listed here are overall ones where the ones listed only under a sub-heading are case specific.
Requirements.
  • 12,000-100,000 gp
Suggested items.
  • Boots of lightness

  • Spotter/Spottier Cape

  • Pennance Gloves
After you have as many vials as you want log into the forums and create a post selling Water Filled Vials for 200ea. This method can be hard sometimes because you get bored of doing the same thing and you can not always find a buyer.

Hint.
Try posting on the forums after you have 1,000 Vials and keep buying more while trying to find a buyer on the forums.

3.0 [Secondary's]
In this section I will go over different ways to gather secondary items or the item used to make a potion besides the herb itself.

3.1 [Snape Grass]
Requirements.
  • Water Staff

  • Lunar Spells

  • Waterbirth Teleport Runes (2 Astral, 1 Law)

  • 5+ Charged Amulets of Glory
                    
  • 72+ Mage
                    
  • 1 Ring of Dueling
Suggested items.
  • Boots of lightness

  • Spotter/Spottier Cape

  • Pennance Gloves

  • Games Necklace
  • Rings of Dueling
One of the better ways to make money and get mage exp at the same time is collecting Snape Grass. There are multiple areas in Runescape to obtain this item but Waterbirth is one of the fastest with the most spawns and respawn rate.
    [1]Equip your water staff, amulet of glory, Duel ring, and weight reducing gear.
    [2]Cast your Teleport to Waterbirth spell.
    [3]Run to the south-west spawn point
    [4]Gather the snape grass as it spawns.
    [5]Teleport back to Edgeville, bank and repeat.You can use rings of dueling here also.
Refer to this picture for more information.
Posted Image


Hint.
Use the level 73 Waterbirth group teleport spell and you and up to 2 other friends can gather snape grass at the same time. It doesn't even require more runes as long as you are using a water staff.

3.2 [Mort Myre Fungi]

Stats/Items Required:

- 60 Prayer
- 48 Construction
- Silver sickle ( b )
- 200 Law runes   } Used for building a Canifis portal in your house;
- 200 Blood runes } If you already have one then you don't need these.

- House teleport runes Tablets also work

Stats Highly Recommended:

- 70+ prayer

Quests Required:

- Priest in Peril
- Started Nature Spirit


Now to explain. You will be picking Mort Myre Fungi.
The higher your prayer the better, this is because in the swamp your prayer will drain 1-3 points every time you cast bloom.
The construction is for teleporting to your house and praying at your alter, then going through the Canifis teleport alter (Its name Kharill or something).

-Anywho-

Start by getting the required stats. Construction you get get up most easily by cutting regular logs and going to the sawmill. You will want to move onto oak logs as soon as you can because regular planks uses nails. However as this is not a construction guide I will not tell you what to make ect.

Prayer is gotten up most efficiently by using someones Gilded Alter. You get 252xp per dragon bone used there, and level 60 is at 273,742 xp. So just minus your prayer xp from 273,742 and divide the answer by 252. That will give you however many bones that you need for 60 prayer.
Anyone with a gilded alter will tell you how to do it because it's quite simple.


The next thing to do is to build an oak (or higher if you have the level) alter, and a Kharill/Canifis teleport portal. This is where you need the 200 laws and 200 blood runes.

OK- If you have all that stuff then we can get on with the main part of the guide!

Posted Image

Basically you start in Canifis bank. Only bring house teleport runes and your silver sickle, and make sure you have full prayer points! Follow the path as shown on the map, down to the gate of the Mort Myre Swamp. Enter. Stand beside two logs (because then you have the chance of getting two fungi in one bloom), and cast bloom (by right clicking the sickle and clicking 'operate', as shown in the picture). Pick up the fungi and repeat this process of casting bloom and picking up the fungi.
Once you either run out of prayer points, or have a full inventory, then teleport to your house and charge your prayer. Use the portal to go back to Canifis and bank your fungi. Repeat this process as many times as desired.

Now, here's the best part about doing this. Mort Myre Fungi sells for 1k each!
It takes about 3-4 minutes per trip depending on how fast you do it, But I worked it out to be around 400k an hour.

Pictures:

Posted Image
This is where you stand, and I've put the inventory space up to show anyone confused.

Posted Image
Shows casting bloom with your silver sickle while having it in your weapon slot.

Posted Image
This is why you should stand next to two logs :)

Posted Image
You can see in this picture how I have got my alter set up. The purple portal on the left is the exit of my house, it is also where I come in when I teleport.
The white portal on the right is the Canifis teleport.

3.3 [White Berries]
White berries are a second that are not bought as commonly as most but people do buy them and usually in very large numbers.


3.31 [Red dragon lair]
Requirements
  • 57 Woodcutting
  • Axe
  • Anti-Dragon shield
  • Charged glory
Recommendations
  • Weight reducing gear
  • High level agility
Posted Image
Follow the Red path from edgeville, make a wakka when you reach the canoe tree.
Run North following the red path until you reach the berries.
After you have enough berries follow the blue path and teleport when you reach level 30 wilderness.
Posted Image
The spots where the people are standing are the spawn points.



3.32 [Elven lands]
This way can be much faster and less dangerous than the wilderness way if you have the stats and quests done.

Requirements
  • Regicide Quest Started
  • 56 Agility
  • Tiny Elf crystals
Recommendations
  • Weight reducing gear
  • Lobsters or cake
Posted Image
Follow the red path to get to the berry spawn. The green circles are traps.
After you have enough berries teleport with your elf crystal and follow the blue path to the bank

Posted Image
This is where the one spawn point is.



4.0 [Unid Herbs]
In this section I will go over different ways to gather unid herbs or herbs that a play does not identify so as to get the same price for all sold..


4.1 [Taverly Dungeon Chaos Druids]
Stats/Items required.
  • Rune or better weapon.
  • Mithril or better armour.
Stats/Items suggested.
  • Some food if your a lower level.
  • Weight reducing gear.
  • Falador Teleport
  • Games Necklace
Posted Image
Follow the Red line if you have Level 5+ and are coming from Falador.
Follow the Blue line if you cant use the agility shortcut and are coming from Falador.
Follow the green line if you are using games necklaces.

Climb down the ladder and follow the Red or Blue line to the Chaos druids.


I will only mention what to do once you arrive once as its the same for all three places
Kill the chaos druids picking up the herbs they drop.
Once your inventory is full teleport out, bank and repeat.

4.2 [Edgeville dungeon Chaos Druids]
Please not that this method holds the low risk of pker's. If your are properly prepared you should be able to evade them but know that you enter the wilderness at your own risk.
Stats/Items required.
  • Rune or better weapon.
  • Mithril or better armour.
Stats/Items suggested.
  • Some food if your a lower level or worried about pker's.
  • Weight reducing gear.
  • Charged Glory's
  • Ancient mage Edgeville Teleport.
Posted Image
Follow the red line.
Blue dot is where you teleport to if on ancients.




4.3 [Ardounge Chaos Druids]
This method is much safer than edgeville dungeon but at the cost of many less druids and it can get crowded with more than one person killing druids.
Stats/Items required.
  • Rune or better weapon.
  • Mithril or better armour.
  • Lockpick
  • 46+ Thieving
Stats/Items suggested.
  • Some food if your a lower level.
  • Weight reducing gear.
Posted Image
Follow the red line from bank if you have Level 33 Agility.
Follow the blue line if you cant use log bridge.

Pick the lock on the door and kill chaos druids picking up the herbs they drop.
Once your inventory is full retrace your steps and bank.

5.3 [Kingdom Management]
The Kingdom of Miscellania can be very profitable but you must know what to do with it and have some wealth to begin with.

Requirements
  • Throne of Miscellania Quest
  • Royal Trouble Quest
  • 1.5-2mil cash
  • Rune Axe
Suggested Items
  • 1-2mil additional cash
  • Fairy ring teleports unlocked
What to do
Use this map for the following section.
Posted Image

First arrive on the island through either the use of a fairy ring teleport or the boat from Rellekka.
  • Follow the blue line form the purple circle for fairy rings
  • Follow the green line if coming from the docks.
Then follow the red line to the red circle and go to Advisor Ghrim.
Posted Image
Once there goto the management menu and place 1.5-2mil gp in the coffers, also select the amount of labor wanted for each grouping.
Posted Image


Once that is done ensure that your kingdom approval rating is at 100% by cutting the teak trees near the bank at the green circle.
Posted Image
And finally you can bank at the blue circle.

How this helps you
This is mainly something that people with extra money laying around can use to cheaply train skills. While you can always choose to use all the items gathered it is much more profitable to sell everything and average around a 4-5mil profit every month.

This is an example of someone who placed 10 workers in herbs, 4 on maples, and 1 on coal. He gained 419 unid herbs and 4 herb seeds.
Posted Image
I would recommend either placing 10 workers on herbs and 5 on maples or 10 on maples and 5 on herbs. There are many combinations all netting different amounts of profit but these are 2 of the best for gathering herbs while still making money.
For more help with kingdom management try this guide.

For the mort myre fungi, you can get an extra 3 fungi per trip if you take something such as a glory ammy or dueling ring, bank and then withdraw house teles. There are also spots with 3 logs in 1 area

Pretty well put together. Don't forget that if you buy your vials in Shilo, you can use Karamja Gloves 1 and get a small discount on the vials. Shilo General also sells vials 3-5 gp each, I believe, while Ardougne's Vials cost 12gp each.

Also, you can collect more fungi with House TeleTabs.

There are no more barriers to cross. All I have in common with the uncontrollable and the insane, the vicious and the evil, all the mayhem I have caused and my utter indifference toward it I have now surpassed. My pain is constant and sharp and I do not hope for a better world for anyone, in fact I want my pain to be inflicted on others. I want no one to escape, but even after admitting this there is no catharsis, my punishment continues to elude me and I gain no deeper knowledge of myself; no new knowledge can be extracted from my telling. This confession has meant nothing.

If you go down to near the nature alter for mort myre fungi, there is an alter 5 seconds away, assuming you've done the quest  :-)

A good and semi-efficient way of making some quick cash. Though, in the long run I think this isn't good for actual income. It will suffice for only so long before the user either gets tired or cannot find more buyers. Hopping worlds, continuosly putting in that PIN number (if you even have one, which you should  :-P) can get rather annoying after 15 times :-).

Good guide. Good information. I like it :-).

You could but it takes about 70% run just to get there from the gate and then you would have to go all the way back up bank and repeat.

Hopping worlds, continuosly putting in that PIN number (if you even have one, which you should  :-P) can get rather annoying after 15 times :-P.

Good guide. Good information. I like it :-).
Ya i noticed that too when I was getting myself some vials at shilo, the best way to avoid that is if your planning on making a career out of this either get a mule for all your expensive stuff and get rid of the pin on your main or take the risk and dont have a pin. If you buy vials at ardy you can avoid the bank and just use the deposit thing there.

the choas druids in Ardy need a much lower theiving lvl than the 59 you've said, thats the lvl you need for the blood chest downstairs, if you just want the choas druids its more like lvl 25??? KB doesn't do doors and I can't find the right lvl but its around 25.

You can also collect blue drag scales, if your going to taverley only need the sheild and key(or shcut).

Dragon scales are pretty impossible to sell. And it's 47 thieving for Ardougne Chaos Druids, but Ardougne Thieving Tower is a HORRIBLE place to kill druids, do to at least one person always being there.

There are no more barriers to cross. All I have in common with the uncontrollable and the insane, the vicious and the evil, all the mayhem I have caused and my utter indifference toward it I have now surpassed. My pain is constant and sharp and I do not hope for a better world for anyone, in fact I want my pain to be inflicted on others. I want no one to escape, but even after admitting this there is no catharsis, my punishment continues to elude me and I gain no deeper knowledge of myself; no new knowledge can be extracted from my telling. This confession has meant nothing.

you forgot aberrant spectars, great way to make money through herblore if you have the slayer lvl.

Well done.

Although, you should provide a link to a thread about how to herb merchant. Just a thought.

As for your guide ... 9/10.

Pretty well put together. Don't forget that if you buy your vials in Shilo, you can use Karamja Gloves 1 and get a small discount on the vials. Shilo General also sells vials 3-5 gp each, I believe, while Ardougne's Vials cost 12gp each.

Also, you can collect more fungi with House TeleTabs.
Good point  :suspect:

Most people dont buy blue scales anymore since there are much better pots from the latest herb update. Also I wasnt sure about what exact level was needed for the tower since im above the thieving level for blood chests. If anyone can confirm what level is needed for that it would be great.

Very nice and perfectly illustrated guide

please, let me suggest mentioning
- banshees and aberrant specters as the great herbs source, not only chaos driuds
- Salarin the twisted is ok too, but there is 67 agility requirement and 82 thieving is highly recommended to utilize this NPC the best way

also there is the sense to mention the skill of farming
- it provides me with enough limps for super str and whiteberries or poison ivy (the only way to get it except buying)
- belladonna can be grown by farming and it is possible to re-obtain skavid map after watchtower quest to collect belladonna at skavid caves while alching (to make super weapon poison)

Miscellania management deserves to be mentioned as well
i had placed 10 workers on herbs, retrieving commodities once per week (not raising approval each every day, only while retrieving goods), keeping 2M in coffers (1,5M is ok too).
Here is the sample what i get weekly (actual numbers may vay each week, but overall herblore xp is about steady 45K)
Posted Image
(if your curious - the rest commodities: coal, uncuts, nests, logs and seeds - 1 worker at coal, 4 at maples)
Herbs in details:
78 Tarromin (id = 5, serum 207 = 55, 60 xp ea) 78*60 = 4,680
68 Harralander (id = 6.3 xp, combat pot = 64, 70.3 xp ea) 68*70.3 = 4,780
28 Rannar (id = 7.5, prayer pot = 87.5, 95 xp ea) 28*95 = 2,660
66 Irit Leaf (id = 8.8, super attack = 100, 108.8 xp ea) 66*108.8 = 7,180
60 Avantoe (id = 10, super energy 118, 128 xp ea) 60*128 = 7,680
23 Kwuarm (id = 11.3, super str = 125, 136.3 xp ea) 23*136.3 = 3,135
25 Cadantine (id = 12.5, super def = 150, 162.5 xp ea) 25*162.5 = 4,062
37 Lantadyme (id = 13.1, magic pot = 172.5, 185.6 xp ea) 37*185.6 = 6,867
34 Dwarf Weed (id = 13.8, ranged pot = 165, 178.8 xp ea) 34*178.8 = 6,079

Total 419 herbs, total cost 350K, 835 gp ea
Total 47,123 herblore xp
to repeat: this takes 5 minutes once a week

Kwuarm is faster to get from abberatnts rather from fewer spiders

The best source of vials for me is Mortton general shop (it is never crowded, has 100 vials at stock) with banking at Burg de Rott, it requires some running, but it is still faster than swapping worlds to discover the empty shop at Ardy or Shilo
(requires Shades of Mortton and first 2 Myreque quests)

Also i do agree, best sellers are prayer pots and super strs. Supersets also goes pretty fast at world 2
the rest: mage pots, antifires, sara brews, antipoisons etc are harder to sell. Super-restores are great
but obtaining snapdragon is a pain (i grow it with farming at Troll Stronghold ffarming patch when aberrants
drop me appropriate seeds). You forgot super strong weapon poison, selling it 10K ea is not a problem
(dragon daggers can be bought at Zanaris (world hopping) for 30k, after poisoning dds sells for 55K
and there is a reasonably good demand for DDS as people often lose it in wildy)

Thats it, fell free to use figures if you want, let me repeat: very nice made guide

Truth be told about farming when I was planning this guide there was going to be a farming section but I was feeling lazy and didn't put it in final, although i might write up something for it in the next month or so :-) . About banshees I never though they were really a good source of herbs from the times when i get them as slayer tasks, Abby Specters I have never killed but have been told they have good herb drops, the only problem is the sorta high slayer level needed to kill them. If I were to include kingdom management it would most likely be in the farming section. While this is more of a guide on how to make money not really herblore exp the herbs from here are a great source of potions. One of my friends has his set at 10 maple 5 herb which is a good mix of money and herbs, the maples and tree seeds can be burned/planted or sold the nests can be used/sold for sara brews and then you get a healthy amount of herb to make pots with. I recall there being vials at mortton and 100 per server with a little walk is by far much better than server hopping 10sec after you log in. For belladonna I beleive that the "Cave" version cant be used in herblore but i might be wrong the only thing is even if you did almost no one buys it except for maybe the odd 1 or 2. For herb/pot merchanting I would need a second guide just for that but I have very limited knowledge in that subject.

Thanks for the input, I should make changes in a few days or so when I have time to sit down and work on it.
