A Herb is a key ingredient in the Herblaw skill. Herbs are also referred to as unids, meaning unidentified herb. They must be identified before use, and once identified, their name will change to the type of herb it is.

When in a bank, herbs will stack in several bank piles. Each pile is a different type of herb.

Chaos druids are known to have the best herb drop rate, and are commonly killed for that reason, as well as the fact that they drop several herblaw secondary ingredients.


  • In the items database there exists an unobtainable herb, which does not have an identified form. This is most likely that expansion of herblaw was thought of, but later scrapped with the release of RuneScape 2.
