Limpwurt root detail.png

Limpwurt roots are used to make Strength potion at level 7 Herblore (combined with a Tarromin) and Super strength potion at level 55 Herblore (combined with a Kwuarm).

Limpwurt roots are dropped by many monsters, and can also be purchased at Poletax's Herblore Shop and the Meilyr Clan Store. With level 26 Farming, players can grow their own roots in a farming patch using Limpwurt seeds.

At level 20 Dungeoneering players (both F2P and P2P) may enter the Edgeville resource dungeon located in the east of the hill giant area where four limpwurt roots spawn. Varrock Sewers resource dungeon also has four spawns but it requires 65 Dungeoneering and is further from a bank.

The Apothecary in western Varrock will make a 4-dose Strength potion if you bring him Red spiders' eggs, a limpwurt root, and 5 coins.

According to the official bestiary (now removed), hobgoblins often chew limpwurt roots, which may be a reference to the common drop of these roots for hobgoblins. In addition, the minitrice pet use them as food, which may be related to limpwurt roots being a common drop of cockatrices.

Three limpwurt roots are found in the chest in Evil Dave's compound in New Varrock. They can also be used to make strength potions, but the potions cost 5 zemomarks instead of coins.

  • Limpwurt may be named after limpwort, an alternative name for Veronica beccabunga.
  • Limpwurt roots used to look identical to arcenia roots, until an update around 2005 gave them their current appearance.
  • They cannot be stacked using magic notepaper. Upon trying to do so will yield the message "nothing interesting happens". Withdrawing noted forms from the bank will still work and players still also receive noted drops. It is unknown why this is like this.
