Hetty the WitchEdit

Talk to Hetty, in her house in southeast Rimmington, and tell her you want to know more about the black arts. She will tell you she needs four ingredients you have to get: a rat's tail, a piece of burnt meat, an eye of newt, and an onion.

Rat's tailEdit

You need to start the quest to get a rat's tail. Go west of Hetty's house and kill a rat in the archery shop to obtain a rat's tail (only the level 1 rats drop the tail - you will have to kill a level 3 rat for the meat and a level 1 rat for the tail, although it may take a couple or so kills, so bear that in mind.)

Burnt meatEdit

Kill a giant rat just north of the chapel graveyard southeast of Rimmington and cook it. There is a range marked by a pan on your map where you can use to cook the meat on just south of the magic shop in Port Sarim and a range in the house north of Hetty's; logs also spawn in the general store of Rimmington. If you didn't manage to burn it, use the cooked meat on the fire or range to produce burnt meat. Alternatively, imps can be killed for a chance at dropping burnt meat. You can also buy raw meat from Wydin at the food store in Port Sarim.

Eye of newtEdit

You can buy an eye of newt from the magic shop in Port Sarim for 3 coins, it is labelled with a small fire rune on your map.


Onions can be found in a field northwest of Rimmington (directly east of Melzar's Maze) or in the backyard of Fred the Farmer's farmhouse west of the sheep pen in Lumbridge.

Finishing upEdit

Witch's Potion cauldron

The cauldron you drink from in Hetty's house.

When you have all these items, talk to Hetty. She'll put them in her cauldron and tell you to drink from it. Drink from the cauldron to complete the quest and gain your reward.
