A juju farming potion is a potion made from ingredients obtained from the Herblore Habitat activity. It requires 64 Herblore to make and 74 Hunter and 70 Farming to collect the materials to create. It gives a one in three chance of picking twice the amount of herbs from a herb patch for five minutes (no experience is given for the extra herbs). If there is no inventory space available for the second herb, it will be dropped on the ground. This potion will work on the Herblore Habitat herb patches.
This juju potion can be stored by the tool leprechaun found in the Herblore Habitat. In order to do so, the potion must consist of 3 doses, otherwise it cannot be stored. The maximum amount of potions of one type that can be stored is 30.
When there is one minute left for the potion, a message will warn the player of this fact unless game messages have been turned off. Logging out will immediately end the effects of the potion.
By starting at the Trollheim patch, a single dose can be in effect for all five herb patch locations depending on travel methods. It is also possible to include the two Herblore Habitat vine herb patches by starting a herb run at the Trollheim farming patch. It is recommended to harvest one's original herb plants and only replant the patches that require teleport runes, such as the Trollheim patch. This will save crucial time when farming the last vine herbs on the island east of Herblore Habitat. After picking all the herbs while the potion is active, use free teleports to replant the herb plants at the Falador patch (with Explorer's Ring), the Morytania patch (with Ectophial), the Catherby patch (Catherby lodestone), and finally the Ardougne patch (with Ardougne Cape 3/4 or Ardougne lodestone).
Many players on the Forums have complained that it doesn't work as sufficiently for Torstol as it does for lower level herbs. This is yet to be confirmed. On that note, be warned that even with this potion, you still MAY lose money buying the seeds and farming torstols.
For instructions on how to obtain the ingredients and make this potion without fully understanding the complexities of Herblore Habitat, a guide is provided here.
|Juju farming potion|
|Juju vial of water||1|
The Juju farming potion is expected to increase harvest by 33%, where there is a 1 in 3 chance of harvesting an additional herb.
For example, if a harvest would have otherwise produced 9 herbs, with the effect of the Juju potion, an additional 3 herbs (on average) would also have been obtained, increasing the harvest to 12. If the average harvest is 7 without the farming potion, then with the average will go above 9 (9.31 precisely). The extra herbs received from the use of the potion come from the same seed, therefore the additional 2.31 herbs from the above example are pure profit. If you are utilising all of the five herb patches, each farming potion will improve the harvests of 15 seeds and on average produce an extra 35 herbs. For Torstol seeds, a Juju farming potion (3 dose) could be worth 700k.
You should always aim to harvest all 5 herb patches (including the one on top of Trollheim) with the aid of various teleportation devices (Combat bracelet to Ranging Guild, Ectophial, Explorer's Ring). You may also have time to visit Herblore Habitat whilst the potion is still in effect - this would be very beneficial for Ugune seeds. Any additional crops planted, flower or fruit/veg, can be harvested on a second trip.
The above calculation does not consider dead crops. You could first check the seeds to see if all have grown healthy before drinking the potion and gathering. Though if you were doing Torstol you probably would have regularly visited the harvests during the 70–80 minutes they take to grow.
Many players decide to use the flask so if they are unable to make it to all the farming patches in under 500 ticks it takes up less space within their inventory.
