This talk page is for discussing the Gout tuber page.

Eadgar's Ruse[edit source]

Eadgar's Ruse says "The ability to grow and steal Goutweed" is a reward. It would make sense for that quest to be a requirement for growing it. If it's the case, it should be mentioned in this article. Can anyone confirm? Blade Sabre (talk) 15:11, 22 February 2020 (UTC)

Digging someone else’s Gout Tuber[edit source]

The page implies you cannot dig up a gout tuber left behind by another player after a 2017 update. However, I’ve done so in Jan 2020. I hopped into a world and a gout tuber was ready for digging, apparently left behind by another player near Tai Bwo Wanni (in a medium Jungle spot to be specific).

Ironman rules[edit source]

Can ironmen dig up tubers that other players logged out from? I would suppose probably not, but it doesn't seem to be mentioned anywhere. Blade Sabre (talk) 17:08, 30 November 2020 (UTC)

I believe you can, though I have not tested it myself. It is probably worth testing. I don't think there was ever a restriction on irons digging up other people's gout tubers, the logout is only required to remove the anti-griefing protection added in by Jagex.

I also believe it to be possible, and I have heard of players buying gout tubers in Trailblazer League for competitive play. 18:35, 30 November 2020 (UTC)
It'd still be better to ask a Jagex employee on Twitter and cite their response, instead of original research. 18:38, 30 November 2020 (UTC)
I'm not really convinced that's the case. Since it is fairly easy to test, it seems like a waste of jmod's time and effort for them to check something that is not necessarily an intended mechanic. A lot of the information on the wiki is from "original research", including things like drop tables. Andmcadams (talk) 18:57, 30 November 2020 (UTC)
It's possible, I helped a friend of mine with it earlier in the league. If you log out after finding the tuber, anyone can dig it up. -Towelcat (talk) 19:50, 30 November 2020 (UTC)
