Tail of RatEdit

Head out of Hetty's house and enter the building to the west. Kill a level 1 rat. It should drop a rat's tail, as long as you've started the quest.

The OnionEdit

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


Onion picking

Eye of NewtEdit

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.


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 north 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 UpEdit

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!
