  • Step 1: Fill your cauldron with water and bring to a boil.
  • Step 2: Chop 2 apples and add to the boiling water along with the 2 cinnamon sticks
  • Step 3: Stir clockwise until apples become mushy.
  • Step 4: Add 5 werewolf hairs.
  • Step 5: Stir clockwise twice (potion should turn purple)
  • Step 6: Add 2 crushed valerian root.
  • Step 7: Let simmer for 3 minutes.
  • Step 8: Add 1 vial of vampire blood.
  • Step 9: Stir counter clockwise until potion turns bright green.
  • Step 10: Put last apple in WHOLE and take the potion of the fire and let cool.

IMPORTANT: Take the apple out. Biting into the apple (or apple slices) will induce instant petrification which may be reversed using the Mandrake Restorative Potion.

WARNING: Do not, under any circumstance, drink the potion on its own. Even a small dose will be fatal. Drinking the potion will result in death.
