Eye of newt detail

Eye of newt is used in Herblore to make Attack potions at level 1 and Super attack potions at level 45.

They are fairly low in price because players can buy them from many Magic and Herblore stores.

Eye of newt is needed for quests including Witch's Potion and Recipe for Disaster. Also, after players complete Tower of Life, they can use them in the Creature Creation minigame, along with a chicken feather, to create the Newtroost. Finally, they are food for the sneakerpeeper spawn.

This item is almost certainly a reference to the Shakespeare play Macbeth (Act 4, Scene 1), in which the witches add eye of newt to their brew.[1]

At one time Eye of Newt was worth 200 coins on the Grand Exchange and could be bought or sold quickly. However, with the introduction of Eye of newt packs, each of which contains 50 eyes of newts, the increased supply causes the price of this item to drop quickly to 16-18 coins. The price later rose to over 100 Coins, likely due to the price manipulation by a merchant clan, but has fallen again since then.
