Quest Walkthrough

Getting Started

HettyFirstly, visit Hetty the witch in Rimmington and tell her that you're looking for a quest. She says that she may have something for you to do, and she asks you if you want to get better at the "Dark Arts" (also known as your Magic skill).

Say yes, and she will inform you that she needs your help in obtaining the ingredients for a brand-new potion she's cooking up. The required items include an Eye of Newt, a Rat's Tail, an Onion, and a piece of Burnt Meat.

Making the Potion

All of the ingredients needed for Hetty's potion can be found near Rimmington:

  • You can buy an Eye of NewtEye of Newt from the Magic Emporium in Port Sarim for 3gp.
  • Fresh onionsOnion grow in the garden just north of the town.
  • You can find some Rats just south-east of town, which you can kill for meat to later burn on a stove.
  • Kill a small level 1 Rat and pick up its Rat's Tail,Rat's Tail another needed ingredient.

Tip: If you're too high of a Cooking level to burn meat, there's no need to worry! You can simply just re-cook an already-cooked meat to burn it!

That's Hetty the Witch

After obtaining all of the required ingredients, go back to Hetty and give her all of the items. She mixes a potion in her Cauldron, which you can drink from to complete the quest.

Congratulations, Witch's Potion Quest complete!
