The reset time for jadinkos is the same as weekly resets; Wednesday 00:00 UTC. (Players need to be aware of the weekly reset for their geographical location.)

Jadinko hunting is a weekly Distractions and Diversions for Witchdoctor clothing and farming, hunter, or herblore experience which was released with members only Herblore Habitat on 24 November 2010.

Regular jadinko[edit | edit source]

If the player catches at least one of each regular jadinko type in the same week, Papa Mambo will message in 'All Chat' regarding the reward. A player may choose to receive experience in farming, hunter, or herblore. The amount of experience earned is equal to twice as much experience as the player would receive for turning in a pair of strange rocks. The three tracking jadinkos (Shadow, Diseased, and Camouflaged) must be caught within Herblore Habitat while the remaining jadinkos may be caught in either Herblore Habitat and/or Anachronia.

Anachronia strategy[edit | edit source]


The Anachronia jadinkos are easier - bring a 2-3 dose juju hunter potion for red/green vine blossom (only for Cannibal, Aquatic, or Draconic jadinkos) and marasamaw plants, no noose wand hunting and without the need for changing habitats.

  • For Igneous jadinkos take the Lodestone Network to Anachronia base camp and go to north-west corner OR  Use Slayer cape perk to Laniakea and go to north-west room.
  • Take the Anachronia Agility Course south from base camp to the end of Section A - cross the tree obstacle - then go east and north to Draconic (red vine blossom) and Common jadinkos
  • Go north from Common to Aquatic jadinkos (red vine blossom - juju hunter potion lasts 10 minutes if used for Draconic jadinko on previous step)
  • Go north and east, then north and west around lake to Amphibious jadinkos
  • Go north, then east of temple to Feral dinosaurs, then west past Venomous dinosaur to Cannibal (green vine blossom) and Carrion jadinkos
  • The three tracking jadinkos (Shadow, Diseased, and Camouflaged) must be caught within Herblore Habitat in order to be counted for Jadinko hunting

God jadinko[edit | edit source]

If the player catches at least one of each God jadinko in the same week, Papa Mambo will message in 'All Chat' regarding the option to receive another reward - which will be 50% of the regular jadinko reward. If the player catches the God jadinkos before catching the regular ones, the player will NOT get a message from Papa Mambo about collecting all the God jadinkos, but the player can still claim the bonus reward after all 10 regular jadinkos are caught.

Reward[edit | edit source]

If the player catches all the jadinkos but does not claim the reward from Papa Mambo, the reward will be lost at the next reset.

Extra experience in Herblore Habitat[edit | edit source]

In addition to the "chunk" experience bonus given by Papa Mambo for catching all three god jadinkos in a given week, there is a thirty minute experience bonus given to all Herblore Habitat related Hunting, Farming, and Herblore training. This time begins when the player collects the chunk experience bonus, and ends prematurely if the player logs, so only collect the reward when ready to use the thirty minutes. The bonus experience depends on the witchdoctor clothing worn, with the mask and top giving 2% each and the legs 1%.

Witchdoctor camouflage gear[edit | edit source]

A player wearing full Witchdoctor gear

On any week that the player catches all of the normal jadinkos at least once, the player will have a random chance to get either the witchdoctor legs or witchdoctor robes regardless of what piece(s) the player has already obtained.

The player will receive the witchdoctor mask when the player has managed to catch three god jadinkos in the same week as the player has caught ten regular jadinkos.

If the player already owns one or more Witchdoctor masks, the player will not receive an additional one after capturing all the normal and god jadinkos. It is helpful to have a Witchdoctor mask stored in the bank for quick teleporation to Herblore Habitat and another to complete the Witchdoctor Camouflage gear set stored in the costume room of the player-owned house. The drop trick can be used to bypass this restriction.

In order to obtain all 3 pieces, the player must have 55 Agility, 81 Hunter, 77 Farming, 54 Herblore and optionally 80 Construction (or money to pay for environmental features to be built). Boosts and assists can be used for Construction, but assists cannot be used to bypass the Farming requirement as the Kalferberry and Lergberry seeds are untradeable. Players can only receive one piece of either witchdoctor robes/legs during the same week and it is not uncommon for a player to get the same piece multiple weeks in a row.

The Witchdoctor camouflage gear set can be stored in the armour case of the player's costume room in the player-owned house. All three items are stored together.

After obtaining one or more pieces of the witchdoctor armour, if a player talks to Pauline Polaris at the Livid Farm on Lunar Isle, they will receive Mambo's potion. When consumed, Mambo's potion will grant the player an extra 3,000 Farming experience. The player may only receive the potion after having watched the Livid Farm introduction.
