Additional information

Theft risks

the apothecary ghost may steal GTP (£££), XP, plasma or bait from you if you fail to capture it.

Using Nessy's, one of the Shadetouch family, or a mocktail as bait will prevent the bait being stolen.

In general, increasing the security measures of your setup can help reduce your total losses. Adding a stat like security measures, though, can hurt your stat totals in other areas. You must decide if increasing your security measures stat to reduce the chance of theft by ghosts like apothecary ghost is worth sacrificing other stats in your setup.


The apothecary ghost is vulnerable to arcane mechanisms.

If you catch this ghost with an arcane trap mechanism, you have a chance to trigger its vulnerability bonus, overdrive.

When the overdrive bonus is triggered, your hunting cooldown is immediately re-set.


The apothecary ghost can be captured in region 6, Central, in Gloamin Tower.

Mystic resistance

The apothecary ghost is resistant to mystic power.

Mystic-resistant ghosts have three primary types:

  • Ghosts that can be caught with a strong raw-power setup
  • Ghosts that can only be caught with a combination of willpower (to overcome their mystic resistance) and high mystic power
  • Ghosts that require brute force in your setup to activate before they can be caught

Use a high mystic power, high willpower setup when you are trying to catch the Apothecary ghost.

Brute force may also strengthen your setup when you are trying to catch the Apothecary ghost.


The apothecary ghost has been known to occasionally drop the following types of ghost loot:
