Starting out

Starting Witch's Potion

Talk to Hetty in Rimmington and tell her to help you become one with your darker side. She will then ask you to get her 1 burntmeat, eye of newt, an onion, and a rat's tail. In exchange she says she will increase your knowledge of the dark arts (Magic).

Collecting the items

Witch's Potion Map

Locations of the Items

Tail of rat

Kill a level 2 rat. They can be found all over Rimmington, so you should have no trouble finding one. if you find yourself not getting a Rat's tail drop then that means you have not yet started the quest.

The onion

Onion field

Onion field

Walk north a little way and you will find a patch of earth with onions on it. Take one.

Eye of newt

Head east to Port Sarim, enter the Magic Shop and speak to Betty. Buy an eye of newt for 3 coins from her store. If there is no remaining stock, wait for the stock to replenish.


Burning meat witch potion

Producing burntmeat

If you don't already have raw meat, kill the giant rat south of the Port Sarim jail and cook the meat it drops (there's a range in the building west of Hetty's house). If you don't burn it, and get cookedmeat instead, use the cookedmeat on a fire or range, and you'll get burntmeat. You can also get burntmeat by killing Imps.

Finishing up

Head back to Hetty and give her the four items by talking to her. Right click the cauldron and select drink-from.

Congratulations, quest complete!
