Primal Extract Run Guide

Why

This is alternative or supplemental Farming/Herblore method to Herb runs.

Classic Herb runs yield about 31k Herblore XP per run (102 herbs, with about 300 XP per herb) every 90 minutes with perfect setup, which includes Legendary Greenfingers Aura, Perfect Juju Potion and Ultracompost.

Primal Fruit runs are very different. Here are some pros:

  • XP per run is significantly higher

  • Gold earned from the run is significantly higher (this can change as 120 Herblore is pretty new)

  • Once you have all trees/bushes/cacti planted you don't need to buy any more seeds and you don't need to worry about Super or Ultracompost

  • Mature trees/bushes/cacti can't become diseased and eventually die, which makes this method very reliable (unlike herbs)


What to grow
  • Bush - Lychee

    • 111 Farming, you need 5 seeds and these seeds come from T2 or T3 Big Game Hunter

  • Fruit Tree - Guarana Tree

    • 107 Farming, You need 7 seeds, they come from Lost Grove creatures

  • Cactus - Golden Dragonfruit

    • 116 Farming, you need 3 seeds and most reliable way to obtain them is Elite Clues

It is important to note that Farming Level requirements can be boosted when planting the seed/sapling. You can gather fruit even if you don't have required level and by doing so you'll lose all XP (which is not that concerning since gather XP is rather low)


Requirements

Unlockables - if you don't have these you will get lower fruit yield and Herblore XP

  • Quests

    • Mourning Ends Part 1 (started) - Lletya

    • Plagues End - Priffindas

    • Jack of Spades - Menaphos

  • Built Menaphos + Anachronia Cactus Patch

  • Desert Amulet 3/4 - doubles Cactus yield

  • Spirit Wolpetinger Pouch - doubles Bush yield

  • Giant Ent Pouch - increases Fruit Tree, Bush and Cactus yield by 50%

Transportation - If you don't have all these don't worry, you should be still fine with alternative transportation methods it will just take more time and effort. There might be more efficient methods of transportation (such as teletabs), however this guide is optimized for the least effort and prep, not speed

  • Juju Spiritbag/Witch Doctor Mask

  • Teleport Crystal (pref. Attuned)

  • Miscellania Spirit Tree

  • Totem of Abyss @ Northern Anachronia

  • Quick Lodestone Teleports (not required but very recommended)

  • Rimmington Teleport Tablets


Actual Run

Note that many steps can be done out of order.

  1. Bushes:

    1. Summon Spirit Wolpetinger

    2. Teleport to Varrock Lodestone, run south and gather bush

    3. Teleport to Port Sarim Lodestone, run west and gather bush

    4. Use Kandarin Monastery Teleport, run east and gather bush

    5. Teleport to Crwys Clan (Teleport Crystal), run west and gather bush

    6. Run west to Spirit Tree, teleport to Etceteria and run east and gather bush

  2. Fruit Trees

    1. Summon Giant Ent

    2. Run back east to Spirit Tree, teleport to Gnome Stronghold, run south and gather fruit

    3. Run back north to Spirit Tree, teleport to Tree Gnome Village

    4. Run east to Elkoy, select Follow, run south and gather fruit

    5. Teleport to Catherby Lodestone, run west and gather fruit

    6. Teleport to Melyir Clan (Teleport Crystal), run north and gather fruit

    7. Teleport to Lletya (Teleport Crystal), run west and gather fruit

    8. Teleport to Herblore Habitat (Spiritbag/Mask), run south, cross vine and gather fruit

    9. Teleport to Brimhaven Lodestone, run north and gather fruit

  3. Cacti

    1. Anachronia Teleport (Totem of the Abyss @Brutish dino spot), run south and harvest dragonfruit

    2. Teleport to Al Kharid Lodestone, run north-east and harvest dragonfruit

    3. Teleport to Menaphos Lodestone, run north-west and harvest dragonfruit


Rewards
  • 40x Lychee Fruit (7x pulp)

  • 63x Guarana Fruit (6x pulp)

  • 27x Golden Dragonfruit (unknown at the moment, assumed 9 as standard Dragonfruit yields 7)

By crushing all this fruit you will get 901 Primal Fruit Pulp. This will require 90 Herblore and 90 Cooking.

Pulp can be further processed into Primal Extract, with yield based on your Herblore Level. This yields 145 Herblore XP per pulp, so the perfect run will give you 131,945 Herblore XP.

  • 90+ Herblore - 901 vials of Primal Extract

  • 102+ Herblore - 1802 vials of Primal Extract

  • 112+ herblore - 2703 vials of Primal Extract

Herblore level doesn't affect the amount of experience you get, and you can use boosts to get more Extract.

I do not have precise data, but based on my experience this run can be repeated about every 6-8 hours and takes about 12-15 minutes

Thanks mate!

Maybe I'm mistaking, but according to the world map, regarding the Cacti patches:

- Al Kharid patch is north-east of the lode

- Menaphos patch is north-west of the lode

- Anachronia patch is north at the Brutish Dino's

It assumes you've placed a totem of the abyss @ the northern spot by brutish dinos, so you tele to it and run slightly south.

 

I'll change the other 2 to better reflect directions.

You can gather fruit even if you don't have required level

I just tried to pick Dragonfruit. It allowed me to check the health of the tree, but it didn't allow me to pick the fruits. It gave me a message to either clear the patch or boost the level.

 

- with Lychees it seems to work without the xp
