Guthix balance potions are modified Restore potions, made using the Herblore skill. To make Guthix balance, players must have started In Aid of the Myreque and have at least level 22 Herblore. Guthix balance can be used against vampyres and vyrewatches in Morytania or Meiyerditch. A potion of Guthix Balance has to be mixed in Morytania to complete a Medium Morytania Task.
First, a restore potion is made (by adding harralander and red spider's eggs to a vial of water). Then, garlic and silver dust are added to the restore potion to make this potion. Silver dust can be made by using a silver bar at the Grinder near the Ectofuntus, or bought at the Grand Exchange. Adding garlic gives the player 25 Herblore experience, and adding silver dust gives another 25 Herblore experience.
Garlic and silver dust can be added to restore potion of any dosage, i.e., 1-4 doses. The experience for the secondary ingredients is the same, independent of the dosage. For maximum efficiency, it is recommended that restore potions are decanted into 4-dose potions before Guthix balance potions are created. Alternatively, if being made from scratch for the experience, making the potions at the default 3 doses would earn more experience at the cost of more materials. If only the garlic is added, players will obtain "Guthix balance (unf)". The number of doses for these unfinished potions is not shown in their in-game names, although it will be for the finished potion.
Guthix balance potions are used against frozen Vampyre juveniles, Vampyre juvinates or Vyrewatch. After freezing a vampyre with the Rod of Ivandis or Flail of Ivandis, the usage of the potion has three outcomes: the vampyre will be destroyed, the vampyre will become angry (+10 combat level, but vulnerable to all attacks), or they will be returned to human form. Using it on a held Vyrewatch will simply deal a random amount of damage.
