Extreme defence detail.png

Extreme defence potions are made by players using the Herblore skill. It requires a Herblore level of 90 to make. When consumed, the player will get a boost in the Defence skill. The boost is between 3 to 17 (15% + 3) levels depending on the player's Defence level.

A Super defence potion (3-dose) and Clean lantadyme are the ingredients required to create this potion. Making this potion will give 240 Herblore experience. The potion cannot be made with the assistance of others.

This potion, along with a Extreme attack, Extreme strength, Extreme ranging, and Extreme magic, can be used with a clean torstol at 96 Herblore to make an Overload potion.

* However, the untradeable potion can still be used.


This potion can be made into an Extreme defence flask by using at least six doses of it with a Potion flask. Players do not need a specific level to turn potions into flasks.


  • Before the Evolution of Combat, this potion could not be used anywhere in the Wilderness. If a player travelled to any part of the Wilderness after drinking an extreme defence potion, the boost would be reduced to the power of a super defence potion.
