Vial: Misc

This article is about the item used mostly in Herblore. For the item used in Lunar Diplomacy, see Special vial.
A detailed view of a vial

A Vial is a glass container that players generally use in Herblore to make and store potions. They can fill a vial with water by using it on a water source (all the vials in their inventory will fill automatically), except a well. if a player attempts to fill a vial from a well, they will receive the game message: "If I drop my vial down there, I don't think I'm likely to get it back.". Players can also use the lunar spell Humidify to fill vials with water.

Alternatively, they can use half a coconut on it to fill the vial with coconut milk. They can then add a herb and a secondary ingredient to make a potion, depending on their Herblore level.

When trying to use a empty vial on the red mist from killing Armoured zombies it will say: "I don't seem to be able to collect the mist with this."

In real life a vial would be cylindrical, whereas in RuneScape it has a wide bottom and tapered top. This makes it more like an Erlenmeyer flask.


Obtaining vials for free


Members can make a vial via the Crafting skill by using a glassblowing pipe on a piece of molten glass (which they can make for free), and then choosing "vial" when selecting the item they want to make. Making a vial requires level 33 Crafting, and will give 35 experience points[1].

Two vials also spawn in Frincos's Fabulous Herb Store in south-west Entrana. A vial is also obtained through the Swept Away quest.


Even though vials are mostly used in Herblore (a members-only skill), they are not a members-only item. The apothecary can make a strength potion to any player who supplies him with a limpwurt root and red spiders' eggs, and pays him 5 coins[2]. The player can empty this vial or drink all the doses of the potion to obtain an empty vial. However, the potion itself is worth more than the empty vial.

Before it was removed, players could obtain a good number of vials simply by waiting outside Bounty Hunter, as player-killers used potions and then dropped the vials because they could not be taken into the craters.

Vials are also an incredibly common low value drop in PVP worlds and many can be collected in a short period of time.

Obtaining vials as drops from monsters

Some non-player characters, such as Chaos Druids, will drop vials when killed. Water Elementals always drop a vial of water, and are close to the bank. They are level 34, and players must have at least started Elemental Workshop I.

Buying vials

From NPCs

Members can buy vials in a Herblore shop (for example from Jatix in Taverley), or buy plant cures from gardeners and then empty the vial. Players can also buy them from the general stores in the following places:

Other places to buy vials from NPCs include:

They are most easily obtained in quantity (from NPCs) by purchasing vial packs, each of which can be "opened" to obtain fifty vials.

From other players

After the Shop Improvement update in October 2007, the street prices of empty and water-filled vials dropped in price substantially, because shops began stocking them in infinite quantities. This in turn caused drops in the prices of several potions, due to the ease of obtaining vials.

The Grand Exchange (GE) was introduced the following month, and players can use this to trade vials freely with other players - the current price is 18 coins each. Even though the street price has dropped, players can buy vials from NPCs and sell them on the GE for a profit, if they are willing to spend the time to do so.

The 2 September 2009 Personalised Shops update removed infinite quantities and replaced them with shops unique to each player account, so that one player's purchases or sales did not affect what was available to another player. Store quantities were reduced to 300, with a respawn rate of approximately 12.5 vials per hour. Prices of vials rose dramatically. Packs of vials were added to many stores with the 9 November 2009 Champions' Challenge update, and empty vial prices fell once again.

Making vials

Using the Crafting skill, members can make their own vials. This requires a glassblowing pipe, a molten glass, and 33 Crafting and gives 35 experience per vial made.

Vials appear to have a cork inserted into the top. However, nowhere during the process of making a vial do players come into contact with cork.
