Cooking skillEdit

There is a variety of different foods you can cook in RuneScape. Food is useful because eating it will heal lost hit points. As you practice your cooking, your character will get better. You will burn food less often, and you will be able to make better food which heals you more.

Firemaking skillEdit

To cook food you will need to use one of the many stoves which are scattered around the map. Alternatively if there aren't any stoves nearby you can build a campfire and use that. (although not all foods can be cooked on a fire). To build a fire buy an axe, and use it on a tree to get some logs. Then drop the logs on the ground and use a tinderbox on the logs to light the fire.

Fishing skillEdit

As well as cooking foods such as Meat, Bread, and Stew, you can also catch and cook your own fish. As you get better at fishing you can catch bigger and better fish. Some fish can only be be found in freshwater wheras[sic] others can only be found in saltwater. Also different fish require different fishing equipment to capture.

Cooking and fishing guideEdit

A guide to the different foods you can cook, and fish you can catch, is shown below. In addition to the foods listed there are also some low-level foods and drinks which can be brought directly from the shops and pubs in RuneScape.
