Herblore is a useful skill to work on in Onyx, as it allows for players to create potions such as Overloads and Prayer Renewals which are both extremely useful for all levels of PVM content in-game. This will provide you with all you should need to know in order to gather supplies and/or prepare for the 99 Herblore grind. 

*Disclaimer - Experience rates used do not include donation bonuses or skill of the day.
I have also not taken 'cleaning herb experience' into consideration for the sake of less work on my behalf

 

The Basics

The main method of gaining Herblore experience is by creating potions. To do this, there are two steps.
Step 1: Adding the primary ingredient to a vial of water to create a unfinished potions.
(With exception to some of the higher level potions where the primary ingredient is a potion it self.)
Step 2: Adding the secondary ingredient to the unfinished potion to make a complete potion.

You also however, gain Herblore from initially cleaning grimy herbs.

Gathering Herbs

The most consistent way of gathering herbs is to grow them yourself through the Farming skill, especially for Ironmen.
So I advise you to keep in mind when you are killing monsters, if you have space, collect some of the higher level seeds.

The majority herb seeds can be pickpocketed by Master Farmers (Level 38 Thieving)(Apart from Dwarf Weed Seed),
but you can also get seeds from looting birds nests or killing NPCs.

Some NPCs which are good for seeds include:

Abberrant Spectres
Cave Horror
Chaos Druids
Ankou
Basilisks
Kurask
Jadinkos (All types)
Crazy Archaeologist
Demonic Gorillas
Skotizo
Kraken
Kree'arra

Herblore Training

Since Herblore is a skill that revolves around gathering supplies and secondaries a specific training path is hard to determine, as you should just make all the best potions you can with the supplies you have. But here are possible routes anyway...

 

Level 3 - 26: Attack Potions

Level 26 - 38: Energy Potions

Level 38 - 45: Prayer Potions

Level 45 - 55: Super Attack Potions

Level 55 - 63: Super Strength Potions

Level 63 - 66+: Super Restore Potions

Level 66 - 69+: Super Defence Potions

Level 69 - 72+: Anti-fire Potions

Level 72 - 76+: Ranging Potions

Level 76 - 81+: Magic Potions

Level 81 - 85+: Saradomin Brews

Level 85 - 88+: Super Antifire Potions

Level 88 - 89+: Extreme Attack Potions

Level 89 - 90+: Extreme Strength Potions

Level 90 - 91+: Extreme Defence Potions

Level 91 - 92+: Extreme Magic Potions

Level 92 - 96+: Extreme Ranging Potions

Level 96 - 99: Overloads

 

*If you plan on making as many overload potions as possible while getting 99 Herblore:

96 - 99 = 305 (102) Overloads to make

Preparing a overload from scratch is 13200 xp, if we times this by 305 you will gain 6,408,050 xp.

Therefore if you start the process at roughly level 92 Herblore, you will finish 99 when you're done making all your overloads.

I requested this guide for you yesterday and already you have made such a great guide for our server that was much needed. Again, I like the efforts of the exp ratios you include for both hero and legend/ironman.

I hope to see more guides in the future from you if this is something you enjoy doing. Thank you.

If you continue to make guides of this quality I'll be forced to make a subsection just for you.

Stop it.

 

Just kidding, in reality thanks for these quality guides. Extremely helpful and well written.
