A Potion of Zamorak is a potion that can be made with the herblaw skill. It requires level 78 herblaw to make and gives 175 Herblaw experience. It can be consumed to temporarily boost a players stats. Using a Potion of Zamorak in a duel without informing the opposing fighter (usually called Zammy or Zammying) is considered deceptive and is generally discouraged.
To make a Potion of Zamorak, you first add a Torstol herb to a vial of water, creating an unfinished potion. You then mix Jangerberries with the unfinished potion to make the Potion of Zamorak. As with most potions, you initially make 3 doses of the potion and the doses decrease as you drink them.
When consumed, the player's Attack level increases by 20% + 2, Strength level by 12% + 2 and players Defense level decreases by 10% + 2 and Hits by 10%. The potion will also restore 10% of the player's Prayer as prayer points.
- The potion's full power is obtained from drinking the last dose, giving an additional 2 attack and strength, at the cost of also reducing an additional 2 to defense.
- For this reason the last dose is particularly sought after when stake and commonly passes undetected. This is considered a deceptive and dishonorable tactic, especially if dueling against an inexperienced player.
- It is highly probable that in the RS1 era the potion effects were all the same but when RuneScape 2 was introduced, to match the effects in the RuneScape 2 game, the developer would have gotten an oversight to correct the 1 dose.
