Nettles (plant)

The Nettles (plant) is a piece of interactive scenery found throughout Misthalin and Morytania. It is typically found growing near walls or structures.

The plant may be harvested via the Pick option where, supposing the player has an item in their glove slot, Nettles can be collected for use in Nettle tea. If gloves are not worn, no nettles will be obtained and the player will be dealt up to 20 life points of damage.

The hitsplat of the damage is green similar to poison and can be negated by antipoison effects, but the player does not receive further damage over time as with regular poison. The message in the chatbox upon being damaged states "You have been stung by the nettles." as opposed to "You have been poisoned." as with regular poison hitsplats.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Prior to the update on 17 March 2014, a player had to wield certain gloves to pick nettles. Not all types of gloves worked.
  • A glitch allowed free players to collect nettles for a short period of time; however, these nettles cannot be used in any way on a free world since they appear as "Members Objects".
  • The sound you hear when you are stung by nettles is the same sound goblins used to make when hit by a player in combat.
  • There is a glitch when a player tries to pick a nettle without gloves; their skin turns the same colour as a darker skinned vampyre.
  • You do not need gloves to pick up the item version of nettles (i.e. dropped nettles).
