Herblore is a useful skill in Old School Runescape. With this skill players can create useful potions using various herbs and ingredients. Combine ingredients in a liquid (usually a vial of water) create potions that can be beneficial to players throughout the game.
One such ingredient is whiteberries. Whiteberries can be used to create potions as well as valuable quest items.
Whiteberries can be collected in various locations in OSRS. Players with a level 59 Farming can plant whiteberry seeds, however, players do not require this skill to pick the wild plants. Once all the berries are picked from the plant it will reproduce at the rate of one berry every 25 minutes. One whiteberry seed will produce four whiteberries. Harvesting the whiteberry bushes also reduces using up one of the four “lives” of the patch as they replenish.
There are several locations in OSRS in which players can find wild whiteberry plants. One can be found slightly west of the Champions Guild in the south-west Varrock Mine. Another bush can be found by the house portal in Rimmington. Others can be found in Ecteteria, by the monastery in Ardougne, and the Farming Guild in Kebos Lowland.
Several respawn sites can be found in the game world as well. Lava Dragon Isle has two respawns. Isafdar near the Elf Tracker also has some respawn locations. The bush respawns quickly, every 4-5 seconds. Players can use the teleport crystals to bank their supply of whiteberries, which they can sell on the Grand Exchange.
Uses for Whiteberries
Once a player has whiteberries they can be used for various purposes. Whiteberries can be used to create defense and super defense potions. They can also be used for creating super compost.
To create a defense potion, the player mixes whiteberries with ranerr weed in a vial of water. Players require and Herblore skill of 30 and will give the player 75 Herblore experience. The potion will temporarily increase the player’s defense by 10% +3.
Super defense potions are a little more powerful than regular defense potions. This potion will increase a player’s defense by 5-9 levels (5+15% defense level). This potion is created by combining whiteberries with cadanite. It requires a level 66 Herblore and yields 150 Herblore experience.
Players can also use whiteberries to create supercompost. Filling a compost bin with 15 whiteberries will yield 15 buckets of supercompost. However, players can get similar results with watermelons. Watermelons are much cheaper and will have the same effect.
Whiteberries and Quests
Whiteberries are useful in completing several quests in OSRS. Whiteberries are useful in the Hand in the Sand quest. The whiteberries are needed to create the truth serum to complete a portion of the quest.
Whiteberries can also be used in the Fairytales-Part 1 quest. They are are a possible ingredient in making Magic Secateurs.
