Food

(Redirected from Meat)
Jump to: navigation, search

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 pizza. Some foods, such as pies and pizzas, have two or more "bites" or "slices" meaning they can be eaten multiple times. There are also foods which can be grown with the Farming skill or found in some farm areas such as potatoes, cabbages, and onions. Lastly, there are holiday food items such as pumpkins and easter eggs. It is not advised to eat one of these holiday items due to their low availability and high price.

Common foods[edit | edit source]

These are commonly used food items. A complete list of cooked foods can be found under the Cooking skill.

Notes[edit | edit source]

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

  • Effectiveness: Ensure that the food you take is good enough for your next encounter. Tuna is cheap but it only heals 10 hitpoints, making it not the most effective against stronger opponents, whereas swordfish heal 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. As an example, a TzHaar-Ket has a max hit of 16. Therefore, sharks and monkfish are effective, swordfish are passable, and lobsters are much less effective.
  • Cost: Use food that you can afford. Sharks are often sold by players for around 1,231, whereas monkfish are just as effective in many situations and typically sell for 502 coins. Weigh the cost of food against the possible profit of the venture, and avoid using expensive food unless it is going to make a significant difference to your chance of survival.
