Witch’s Potion Guide (Quick Guide)
This quest guide assumes you purchase everything from the Grand Exchange first.

Witch’s Potion Start
You can start the quest by speaking with Hetty in Rimmington.
She wants you to gather four ingredients:
- Burnt meat
- An eye of newt
- An onion
- And a Rat’s Tail
Luckily you already bought 3/4 from the Grand Exchange.
Obtain the Rat’s Tail
Go into the house next to Hetty’s where a bunch of level-1 rats are running around. Kill any one of them and they will drop a Rat’s Tail.
NOTE: The quest must be started for them to drop the rat’s tail.
Finish the Quest
Speak with Hetty once you have all the ingredients, she will put them in her Cauldron and the quest is complete!
Another super short buyable quest out of the way.
Witch’s Potion Guide (Ironman Guide)
For ironmen accounts who don’t have access to the Grand Exchange, here is a list of locations where you can gather the ingredients.
The map below shows all the locations where you’ll be picking up the ingredients.
Onions can be picked from the farm in Rimmington, North of the house portal.
Eye of Newt Location:
You can purchase Eyes of Newt from the Port Sarim Magic Shop, just East of Rimmington.
Burnt Meat Location:
To get burnt meat, you can kill Giant Rats, Cows and other animals that drop meat which you can burn.
The closest monster to the quest start are the Giant Rats located in the Rimmington Graveyard.
Kill one of them, and pick up their meat.
And then you can cook their meat on the Cooking Range in the house just next to Hetty’s.
Cook the meat twice to burn it.
That’s all the ingredients you need to start the quest.
