Ingald Belger the apothecary is a man who runs an Apothecary in southwest Varrock. He claims that he is 'quite the expert' on poisons, and appears to know of Pox, for whom he still has great fondness. The Apothecary possessed an airtight pot which he claimed was a family heirloom.

His zombie counterpart in New Varrock also plays a small role in Dimension of Disaster: Curse of Arrav, where he is used to make a potion for Dr Harlow. He also provides a potion to make Romeo appear dead, as part of the New Varrock Tasks.

He is listed in the Varrock Census taken in Year 160 of the Fifth Age.

Potions[edit | edit source]

The Apothecary makes potions for players if they provide him with ingredients:

  • If you look closely at one of the jars on the cabinet you can see a sea slug in one of the jars.
  • The chart in his shop looks like the periodic table, as seen in the image to the left.
  • Dr. Jekyll, a former random event, will sometimes teleport to Varrock Square and run to the apothecary for medicine.
The periodic table of the elements. Gielinor seems to have many fewer elements than the real world.
