Defence potions are made by mixing clean marrentill and then bear fur in a vial of water, giving 45 Herblore experience. It requires Herblore level 9. They temporarily raise your defence level by 1-8 (1 + 8% of your defence level, rounded down).

They can be bought at the Warriors' Guild Potion Shop for 880 coins.

Defence potions (1) can sometimes be found inside barrels.

Defence potions (3) are a rare loot from a young impling or a young impling jar.

A defence potion (4) is an ingredient in a grand defence potion, one of the combination potions.

This potion can be made into an Defence flask by using at least six doses of it with a potion flask. Players do not need a specific level to turn potions into flasks.

Defence potions became free to play in March 2013.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Defence potions were previously made with clean ranarr and white berries, requiring a Herblore level of 30 and giving 75 Herblore experience.
    • Using white berries on a ranarr potion (unf) now yields the message "A defence potion is now made using a Marrentill potion (unf)."
  • Previously, during the Jekyll and Hyde random event, if a clean toadflax herb was given to Dr. Jekyll, he would give out a defence potion.
