Trufitus and the Mysterious Potion
Talk to Trufitus.
Agree to Collect the Herbs.
Note: Throughout the island there are Jungle Spiders and Tribesmen. They are aggressive and there is a chance that you will be poisoned when they attack you. The poison effects from this region is very strong, hitting 110 damage every 30 seconds (fast enough to interrupt Home Teleport). That's why it is recommend to bring along some Anti-Poison Potions.
Go to the Tai Bwo Wannai Village south of Brimhaven. When you get there talk to Trufitus in the most north-eastward shack. Ask him where the people in the village are, and you will find out that they are too afraid to stay in the village and have returned to the jungle. He says that you may be able to help them. Ask him how you can help. He tells you that you can help him make a potion that allows him commune with the gods; however, the herbs required for the potion are deep in the jungle.

Gathering the Herbs
Locating the Herbs.
Collecting the Herbs.
Give the Herbs to Trufitus.
Items needed: Anti-Poison Potion, Food, Armour.
The first herb you need to collect is Snake Weed. He says it grows in an area to the south-west where the ground turns soft and the water kisses your feet. Head south-west until you reach a land bridge. Search the marsh just west of that for the "Marshy Jungle Vine". Search it when you find it, you will find a grimy herb. Clean it and you will have "Snake Weed". Return to Trufitus' shack with the Snake Weed and give it to him.
The second herb that you need to collect is Ardrigal. Trufitus says that it is located to the east on a peninsula. Head north-east to the top of the bottom part of the island. Search the shore until you find a peninsula. Search the search-able palm tree, you will find another grimy herb. When you clean it, it will be called "Ardrigal". Return to Trufitus's shack with the Ardrigal and give it to him.
The third herb that you need to collect is Sito Foil. Trufitus says that it is located south where there is a fire that always burns. Head south of the village where the ground is black. Search the scorched earth next to the two fires. You will find yet one more grimy herb. When you clean it, it will be called "Sito Foil". Return to Trufitus's shack with the Sito Foil and give it to him.
The fourth herb that you must collect is Volencia Moss. It clings to rocks so it is hard to find. Trufitus says that it prefers rocks of high metal content and a frequently disturbed environment. He says you should look for it south-east of the village. Head south-east of the village until you reach a mining area. In the mining area there is three normal rocks; search one of them. You will get a grimy herb. When you clean it, it will be called "Volencia Moss". Return to Trufitus's shack with the Volencia Moss and give it to him.
The fifth and final herb that you must collect is Rogues Purse. Trufitus says that is it only found in caverns. He says that there is a secret entrance to the caverns on the northern part of the island and that it may be dangerous. Head north until you reach a cave. On your way to the cave you may notice there are several harpie bug swarms. If you have a bug lantern, you should equip it to prevent them from poisoning you. Search the rocks when you get there, and you will find the entrance to a cave. Enter the cave. You will find yourself surrounded by Jogres.
Take the south-east passage of the cave, when you get to the end you will find a wall covered in fungus. Search the wall, and you will find the final grimy herb. When you clean the herb it will be called "Rogues Purse". Although Jogres sometimes drop the herb if you kill them, these herbs are "not fresh"; Trufitus will not accept them. Return to Trufitus's shack with the Rogues Purse and give it to him.
