The Herblore calculator contains the cost/xp factor as well as the profit of making finished potions from grimy herbs, clean herbs, and unfinished potions. Potions is a type of liquified medicine or drug that is required to be brewed over a period of time for them to work.
If you are interested in calculating the XP/hour, you can by default assume that 2400 potions (that is the optimal banking speed) or 2200 potions (or which is the average banking speed) can be made per hour, using the unfinished potions and other secondary ingredients.
Unfinished weapon potions and unfinished antidotes are not allowed to be traded. Thus, they are not included in this calculator and are excluded for the purpose of calculations.
The scroll of cleansing (abbreviated to SoC in the tables, also known as the wasteless herblore effect) may be purchased as a reward from Dungeoneering (a category of potions) for 20,000 tokens. It has a 1 in 10 chance of saving a secondary when mixing potions.
- When adding herbs to water (making unfinished potions), the clean herb may be saved.
- When completing potions (adding secondaries to unfinished potions) the secondary ingredient may be saved.
