Lava eel detail.png

Lava eels are the result of using a raw lava eel on a fire or range. They require level 53 Fishing to catch, and a Cooking level of 53 to cook, granting 30 Cooking experience. Lava eels may be caught using an oily fishing rod and bait in the lava rivers found in Taverley Dungeon or in the Wilderness Lava Maze. They heal 11 hitpoints.

During the Heroes' Quest, guild-master Achietties will ask players to obtain a cooked lava eel to prove that they are worthy of membership to the Heroes' Guild. Players will then need to visit Gerrant in Port Sarim to learn how to make an oily fishing rod, followed by going to either Taverley Dungeon or the Wilderness Lava Maze to catch an eel.

When cooking lava eel, it will never burn.


  • Despite living in a lava pool, you can cook the lava eel on fire. In real life, lava is much hotter than a simple campfire. This is also stated in the examine information.
  • There was previously a glitch that caused the fishing spots for lava eels to float far above the actual lava. This has been fixed.
