Players of Old School Runescape can find many useful herbs in the game. These herbs can be used to make many valuable and useful potions that can be used for various abilities and restoration. Toadflax is one such herb that has many uses in OSRS.
Toadflax is a low-level herb that can be found in OSRS. It can be acquired through random events, and can also be farmed from toadflax seeds. If a player has a 38 Farming skill, they can grow toadflax from toadflax seed in an herb patch. These seeds can be acquired from killing monsters or pickpocketing Master Farmers. Unlike some herbs, farmers will not watch over you toadflax.
Toadflax requires a level 30 Herblore skill to clean. Players can also gain toadflax from the Agility Arena in Brimhaven. The player can trade 3 tickets or gain the toadflax as a reward for the Temple Trekking. Tree spirits will also drop toadflax.
If a player is trying to farm for profit, toadflax is a great herb to go with. Players will find a very profitable price per herb which makes the time vs. price better than many other herbs.
Uses for Toadflax
Toadflax is an important ingredient in three useful potions in OSRS. The player must first make a base potion by combining toadflax with a vial of water. This will create an undrinkable toadflax potion that can then be combined with other ingredients.
At a Herblore level of 34 players can make an agility potion. This potion raises the player’s Agility skill temporarily by 3 points. To create this potion players must add a toad leg to the toadflax potion. Toad legs can be acquired by pulling the legs of swamp toads. Making this potion gains the player 80 experience points.
Once a player has a level 68 Herblore they can make the antidote+ potion. This potion cures poison and is in effect for nine minutes. Instead of using water the player must use coconut milk to create the toadflax potion. To the potion add yew roots. For each dose of this potion, players will gain 155 experience points.
While it is cheaper and is less effective than antidote++, it is a good choice for players that are playing ironman. It can be useful in fighting off ranged and magic attacks in areas such as the Skeletal Atoll.
One final potion that players can make using toadflax is Saradomin brew. Players need a level 81 Herblore to make this potion, and it will gain them 180 experience points. To create this potion the players add crushed birds nest to the toadflax potion. This potion has a lot of benefits. It will restore hit points by 15% of their maximum +2. It will also increase defense by 20% +2.
With its benefits, Saradomin brew does have its drawbacks. While in use it will lower strength, attack, magic, and ranged by 10%. This potion is recommended for players that are tanking as it will increase their resistance to damage by enemies.
