The full recipe for the Wizard's mind bomb is as follows; ingredients must be used in the order given:

  1. 2 Buckets of water
  2. 2 Barley malt
  3. (optional) 1 "The stuff," to increase chance of maturity
  4. 4 Yanillian hops
  5. 1 Ale yeast
  6. Wait two to five days
  7. Collect the completed ale using eight Beer glasses or two Calquat kegs*.

* Calquat kegs are highly recommended, especially if the ale has matured. Simply by collecting the ale in a keg, the value of the batch will increase by several thousand coins. This ale is considerably more useful in a keg, as it stacks 4 doses into one inventory slot. This will fill two Mind bombs.


  • Increases Magic level by 2 (under level 50) or 3 (above level 50) for up to one minute
  • Lowers Attack by 4
  • Lowers Strength and Defence by 3

The boost to the player's Magic level is different depending on the player's level. The player will receive a +2 boost if they are level 49 or below, or a +3 boost if they are level 50 or above. The boosted Magic level can be applied to extra damage calculation, increasing 3% for every increased Magic level, to a maximum of 9%. This makes it the only drink in F2P to enhance magic damage.

Other uses

This item is widely used (and highly recommended) to get around the requirements to enter the Wizards' Guild in Yanille without actually having level 66 Magic. This is useful for various quests, for essence runners, and for players interested in accessing the specialty shops in the guild.
