Jungle Potion is a short quest that takes place on Karamja. It involves gathering a handful of different herbs for Trufitus Shakaya, in order for him to perform a ritual to communicate with the island's gods.

Official description[edit | edit source]

Trufitus Shakaya of the Tai Bwo Wannai Village requires that you collect five special jungle herbs for a potion so he can commune with his gods.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Communing[edit | edit source]

Talk to Trufitus Shakaya at the house which is northeast from the Tai Bwo Wannai Village (south-east of the Karamja lodestone). When you ask him about the absence of people in the village, he tells you that he is equally baffled. He, however, needs to talk to the gods regarding the matter and needs a potion to perform the ritual.

As he is old and frail, he asks you to gather the ingredients required to create the commune potion. The herbs he needs are, in this order:

  1. Snake weed
  2. Ardrigal
  3. Sito foil
  4. Volencia moss
  5. Rogue's purse

You must go back to him after obtaining each herb. Before Trufitus has told you what needs to be collected, you will not be able to collect any of the ingredients.

Snake weed[edit | edit source]

The level 60 wandering warriors are poisonous, and aggressive to players under level 120. Try to avoid them by staying on the north side of the sea inlet, or bring food or antipoison.

Marshy jungle vines containing snake weed
  • First, he will tell you to collect snake weed.
  • The snake weed can be found by searching a marshy jungle vine within the marsh on the shore located south-west of Tai Bwo Wannai. It may take over a minute to find the herb, but once you click search it would always be eventually successful. Clean it.
  • Return to Trufitus and give him the clean snake weed.

Ardrigal[edit | edit source]

A palm tree with ardigal at the base
  • Trufitus will tell you to find ardrigal.
  • Go north east from Trufitus, past the cliffs there is a small peninsula extending to the north. You will come to some palm trees with Harpie Bug Swarms, which are level 63 and aggressive, although only one attacks at a time and they don't hit very hard.
  • Search the palm trees to find a herb and clean it.
  • Return to Trufitus and give him the clean ardrigal.

Sito foil[edit | edit source]

A lump of mud containing Sito foil.
  • Trufitus will tell you to find sito foil.
  • The herb is found by the fire remains outside the boundary of Tai Bwo Wannai Village, directly south of the middle house. Search the scorched earth there. This will look like dirt on the floor next to the fires. Search the ground for the herb then clean it.
  • Go back to Trufitus and give him the clean sito foil.

Volencia moss[edit | edit source]

These rocks contain Volencia moss.

Rogue's purse[edit | edit source]

Rogue's purse is growing on the cave wall.

Armour and food or the Protect from Melee prayer is highly recommended for low level players.

  • Trufitus will tell you to find rogue's purse. You cannot use rogue's purse from the Shades of Mort'ton quest, from the Grand Exchange, or as drops from the jogres in the cave or the wandering warriors. It must be from the walls. The walls will not yield unless you are given the task to fetch it.
  • The herb is in the Pothole Dungeon. The dungeon's entrance is found to the north along the coast, slightly west of the harpie bug swarms, which you must pass by. Search the rocks there and enter the cave. Beware of the aggressive jogres that inhabit the dungeon!
  • Search a wall with green spots (Fungus covered Cavern wall) to find the herb. They are marked on the minimap as short red sections on the walls. However, a few of them are blocked by fungus on the ground and cannot be reached. This may take some time. Clean the herb.
  • To exit the dungeon, climb up the rocks where you entered. It may also be quicker to use the Karamja lodestone and walk south-east.
  • Return to Trufitus, give him the herb, and claim your reward!
