Revision as of 17:30, 15 June 2014

Food, in RuneScape, is what enables the player to regain hitpoints, although some foods may have other effects as well. Food can be obtained through the Cooking skill, as a drop from certain monsters, from some random events such as the Sandwich lady random event, from other players, or from non-player characters.

There are several kinds of food, such as fish and meat, bread, cakesPies, and even pizza. Some foods, such as pies and pizzas, have two or more "bites" or "slices" There are also food which grows from the ground such as potato, cabbage, and onion. There are also special foods such as spinach roll and baguette gained from random events. Lastly, there are holiday items food such as pumpkin and easter egg . It is not advised to eat one of the holiday items foods because of the rarity therefore costing a lot of money.

Notes

When selecting the right food for your next venture, two things should be thought about.

  • Effectiveness: Sure, tuna is cheap, but it only heals 10 hitpoints, making it not the most effective for the outgoing adventurer. Whereas, Swordfish heal a solid 14 hitpoints, a major difference. Also, if you know exactly what you're going to be facing, you should try to find food that heals for more than their max hit. E.g., a TzHaar-Ket will generally hit 15 at the utmost maximum. Therefore, sharks and monkfish are effective, swordfish are passable, and lobsters are ineffective if not dangerous.
  • Cost: How costly is your food going to be? Sharks are a whopping 900-1000 coins. Whereas the equally effective monkfish typically sell for 450-500 gold in most places! Weigh the cost of food against the possible profit of the venture to find out if its worth setting out.
