To start, speak to Kaqemeex, North of Taverly in the stone circle. He wil tell you he needs to purify their cursed altar south of Varrock, which has been taken over by the Dark wizards. He then informs you to speak to Sanfew.
Go South, towards Taverly, to find Sanfew. He is located on the 2nd floor of the herblore shop, marked with a herb on the minimap. Inform Sanfew you were sent to help with the purification of the stone circle. He will state that he needs 4 raw meats (raw beef, raw chicken, raw bear meat, and raw rat meat) to be placed into the cauldron of thunder to complete a ritual.
All 4 items can be bought on the Grand Exchange. If you prefer to get the meats to save money or because you are an Ironman the animals required are all close to each other. One way to get the meats is as follows:
- Teleport to Lumbridge.
- Kill a Cow in the pen North-East of Lumbridge (Raw beef).
- Kill a Chicken at the farm just North-East of the cow pen (Raw chicken).
- Kill a Bear North-West of the chicken farm, South-East of Varrock (Raw bear meat).
- Kill a Rat just North of the Bear (Raw rat meat)
Once you have the 4 meats head southwest to Taverly Dungeon. It's in a clump of dead trees.
Enter the dungeon and head North until you come to the prison door. Try to open it and the Suits of armour will attack you unless your combat is level 55 or above (bring food if you are low level and think you may need it). Kill or ignore them and open the door to enter the room. Once in the room use the raw meats on the Cauldron of Thunder. The meats will turn blue and become enchanted versions. Once this is complete head back and talk to Sanfew.
Sanfew will take the meats from you and be grateful. He will then tell you to visit Kaqemeex.
Kaqemeex will give you your reward and then explain the basics of Herblore. He also refers you to the Council's instruction in the Skills section of the website for more info. As an example on how the herblore skill works he uses an Attack potion.
