Poison chalice detail.png

The poison chalice is a green, sickly-looking beverage given out by the dwarf Stankers, found at the Coal truck mining site.

Giving a poison chalice to King Arthur is required for the easy Seers' Village achievement La Morte D'Arthur.

The chalice can be drunk by players. Despite its name, it does not actually poison the player. Its effects are random, but include:

  • Temporarily boost Crafting, Fletching, or Thieving by up to 1 level.
  • Temporarily boost combat ability (Attack, Strength, and Defence) by up to 4 or reduce it by up to 4.
  • Heal or damage the player: healing players up to 490 life points or damaging them from 30 to 600.

Damage seems to be based on a percentage of the player's life points, at two levels: 5% damage and 60%. It also seems that player with a high amount of life points have lower chances of being damaged by drinking from the poison chalice.

This could be used similarly to nitroglycerine. After an update it cannot kill you as your health cannot fall below 5 from it.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Stankers and his poison chalice is based on a real-life friend of Mod Ash and the Gower brothers.[1]
  • When it heals it does not produce a healing hitsplat. If it is supposed to damage a player but cannot as they are already at too low health, it produces a "blocked" damage hitsplat.

Mod Ash: "I met this old uni friend at a recent party: Stankers - also a friend of the Gowers, who named the coal truck operator after him back in @RuneScape Classic. They added the Poison Chalice drink to honour Stankers' hobby of inventing "cocktails" by that name and giving them out."
