A detailed image of Bob Barter.

Bob Barter is one of the Market Price Guides located in the southwest corner of the Grand Exchange. He has little use in free player worlds (only to decant strength potions), as herbs can only be used by members.

Bob appears to be poor, garbed in unwashed clothing. However, he is actually a wealthy merchant from East Ardougne. By pretending to be poor, he is able to more easily manipulate the businesses and individuals he trades and deals with.

With the update of 9 September 2008, players can now talk to him and he will combine any 3-dose, 2-dose and 1-dose potions in your inventory into vials containing 4 doses. He will also combine barbarian potions and calquat kegs.


  • Zahur in Nardah will decant 4-dose potions into 3-dose potions, for a small fee of 50 coins per inventory converted (regardless of how many potions are in inventory).
