The rates assume 2500 potions are mixed per hour with the scroll of cleansing, portable wells, modified botanist mask, 3 pieces of the factory outfit and botanist's amulets. Always make sure to check prices before you invest heavily into the method.

It is possible to obtain rates of up to 2800 potions per hour by using a Beast of Burden such as a Pack Yak along with bank presets to optimise time spent potion making. This will require a higher intensity in order to manage both inventories.

Even if you opt to not actively use a Beast of Burden, it is still recommended to use one in order to better utilise the ingredients saved by the Scroll of Cleansing. For this method, the inventory setup should be 15 Spirit weed potion (unf) and 13 Cockatrice eggs with 2 Cockatrice eggs in a beast of burden.

It is recommended to use your own portable wells on a world which you have a good connection to as the benefits outweigh the costs in most cases.

When selling the potions its generally best to decant to 4 dose potions first for the best price.

Each item that is missing will result in less profit. Rates are as follows:
