Unfinished potion calculators

How do these calculators work? First of all, we have the normal process of Herblore:

  • Obtain a grimy herb. Buy, find, or farm.
  • Clean it. A specific level is required. By cleaning, experience is gained and the clean version of the herb is obtained.
  • Add to a vial of water or coconut milk. A specific level is required to add a clean herb into a vial of water or coconut milk. An unfinished potion is obtained.
  • Add secondary ingredient. When this ingredient is added, experience is gained, much more than the experience gained for cleaning the herb.
  • Sell the finished potion.

Here we calculate the profit/cost for 3 cases:

  1. Buy a grimy herb, clean it, make an unfinished potion, and sell it.
  2. Buy a clean herb, make an unfinished potion, and sell it.
  3. Buy an unfinished potion, add the secondary ingredient, and sell it.

Scroll of Cleansing

  • The Scroll of Cleansing is a Dungeoneering Reward that costs 20,000 tokens
  • It has a 1 in 10 (the long term/ large amount chance is 11.11%, see scroll of cleansing for detail of calculation) chance of saving a secondary when mixing potions. This effect may save the herb you are mixing with a vial of water, or the secondary ingredient you are adding to an unfinished potion
  • The potion will be mixed 1 tick faster if the scroll activates.

Portable well

  • The Portable well is a Treasure Hunter reward that costs 37449 coins.
  • Deploying it lasts 5 minutes and can be extended for up to 1 hour.
  • Mixing a potion within 1 square of the well will increase Herblore XP by 10% and 5% chance to mix a duplicate potion.

Assumptions

  • All calculations are based on the 3-dose potion prices using live data from the Grand Exchange Market Watch.
  • For potions based on a vial of coconut milk, the process cannot be split. This is because the unfinished potion with coconut milk is not tradeable.
  • Vial of water A vial of water costs 96 coins.
  • Combining the herb and vial of water grants 1 additional XP, which is factored in.
  • BXP and the botanist's outfit are excluded. The only exception is in profit column 4 where the modified botanist's mask effect is added and thus ownership of the entire outfit is assumed.
