–==III. Finding Herbs==–
There are several monsters that seem to drop herbs often…
Men :: Level 9 – Men will actually drop herbs somewhat often, but about 90% of
the time, they are Guam Leaves. This is still useful for beginning Herbloreists
Chaos Druid :: Level 19 – These low-level druids are found in dungeons
scattered across the game, and drop tons of herbs. The first of these is in the
Member’s Dungeon south of Taverly. Just past the area with all of the ghosts,
there is a small room in which several of these guys respawn. However, there
are usually so many people here that it is hard to get in a battle. The second
location is in the Edgeville dungeon up at the Northern-most reaches of the
map. Go back towards the wilderness part of the dungeon, and some Chaos Druids
respawn around lvl 2. The last place to check is for only those very skilled in
Thieving. There is a tower to the Northwest of Ardougne in which 4 of these
guys spawn, but you have to have at least 46 Thieving to pick the lock, and
even then, you will usually fail.
Druid :: Level 29 – There are several of these druids that hang around Taverly
and the Druid’s Circle to the north. These guys are slightly higher level, but
still go down fast, and drop loads of herbs.
Once you get the herbs, you must identify them. The higher the level you are,
the more herbs you can identify. You also gain a small amount of xp for
sucessfully identifying an herb.

–==IV. Second Ingredients==–
Along with an herb, every potion also requires a second ingredient. Here is a
list of all of them, and where to find them:
Eye of Newt – This can be purchased in any magic or Herblore store for 3-5gp.
Ground Unicorn Horn – You must kill a unicorn (lvl-21) to get it’s horn. They
respawn around Camelot, and in the forest southeast of Varrock. Then, use it
with a Mortar and Pestle to grind it up.
Limpwurt Root – These are dropped by various monsters, most often by
hobgoblins and giants.
Red Spider’s Egss – These respawn in the two DeadlyRed Spider nests (one in the
back of the Varrock Sewer dungeon, and another in the Volcano of Karamja).
White Berries – These can be found in the Red Dragon’s Nest in the Wilderness,
and are dropped by various other monsters.
Snape Grass – This respawns on a small little piece of land sticking out into
the ocean right by the Crafting Guild and the Makeover Mage.
Ground Blue Dragon Scales – You can grab a few Blue Dragon Scales if you dare
in the Blue Dragon Nest towards the middle of the Member’s Dungeon south of
Wine of Zamorak – This one is nearly impossible to get without help. North of
Falador, on the edge of the Wilderness, is a small temple in which there are
several Monks of Zamorak. If you try to attack one, or take the jug of wine on
the table, they will curse you (lowering all of your stats,) and attack you.
Bring some Stat Restore Potions and some friends to try to take out all of
them, and then grab the wine from the altar.
There are a multitude of potions that you can make. Here is a complete chart:
