This article is about the spot potion that players can obtain from the apothecary in Varrock. For a list of usable potions, see Herblore.
For the potion created in the Watchtower quest, see Potion (Watchtower).

The Potion is an item given to a player by asking the Apothecary in Varrock for a free sample, with the Apothecary choosing to give it to players roughly half the time and refusing other times. Before Varrock was updated, the potion was available by way of a respawn in the apothecary's building. It has only a few functions in RuneScape; it is a possible item requirement for the Forgettable Tale of a Drunken Dwarf quest, and its other "use" is to be used on the civilians of Sophanem who are covered in spots, which results in various amusing conversations.

  • One can use it on NPCs in Sophanem to get a little bonus dialogue. NPCs with different dialogues are as follows: Priests, Slaves, the Embalmer, Siamun and Raetul (shared with Carpenter). If you use it on one of the plague cows, they will say "Moo". Using it on the plague frogs will not result in anything happening.
