An attack potion is made by mixing clean guam into a vial of water and then adding eye of newt. This gives 25 herblore experience, and requires level 1 Herblore (used to be 3 before the overhaul of Druidic Ritual). It is therefore the most basic of potions and is often made by players who have just started training Herblore.
Using an attack potion will temporarily raise the player's Attack by 1-8 (1 + 8% of Attack level), rounded down. If the player adds roe to a 2-dose potion then it will become a 2-dose attack mix which heals 300 life points. Using an attack potion will not allow you to use higher level equipment. For example, if you have an attack of 39, and you use an attack potion, you will not be able to wield adamant weapons. Attack potions became free to play in March 2013.
A better alternative to using attack potions for combat are buying combat potions. They give the bonuses of both a strength potion and attack potion in only one item slot and are cheaper, only costing 356 coins for 3 doses.
An attack potion can be made into an Attack flask by using at least six doses of it with a Potion flask. An attack potion (4) is also an ingredient in a Grand attack potion, one of the combination potions.
