Start pointQuest point icon.png Speak to the Cook in Lumbridge Castle.
Official difficultySpecial
DescriptionThe cook in Lumbridge has a surprisingly small number of ingredients on hand in his kitchen, possibly as a result of an endless stream of newcomers with light fingers, taking anything that isn't nailed down from his kitchen.

Luckily, in the past, a kind Cook's Assistant was willing to help him in his culinary duties, but a problem has now appeared that could spell... a Recipe For Disaster!

Almost all members may attempt to solve his tricky predicament, and be rewarded accordingly, but only the very elite of Questers will be able to put an end to his problem permanently!

The final battles[edit | edit source]

  • You will need 175 Quest Points and complete Desert Treasure before entering the portal.
  • Remember, you can bank between every kill. Enter the portal and defeat without prayers:
    • Agrith-Na-Na – Range or melee it, wear dragonhide.
    • Flambeed – Mage him with water spells + snare. He can unequip your weapon, unless you are wearing ice gloves.
    • Karamel – Run into melee distance and use fire spells. Ranged and melee work as well, but are less accurate. She will lower your stats frequently. Bring at least 2 restore potions. If going melee, use super combat potions
    • Dessourt – Mage (air spells or Iban blast) or range him. Snare will help.
    • Gelatinnoth Mother – Bring runes for all 4 elemental spells, a melee weapon, and a ranged weapon. Aim for high range defence without sacrificing too much magic attack.
    • Culinaromancer – Attack with whatever you can hit hardest with. Most of his damage comes from a magic attack that hits at a flat 1-in-3 rate, so your magic defence is irrelevant.
