|Examine||Plant this in a herb patch to grow Goutweed.|
A Gout tuber can be planted in a herb patch to grow Goutweed. It cannot be planted at the disease-free Troll Stronghold herb patch. The Goutweed grown from the patch can be traded to Sanfew in Taverley for random herbs at a 1:1 ratio. A gout tuber can also be eaten to heal 400 life points and restore 100% run energy.
They may only be attained during the Tai Bwo Wannai Cleanup minigame, or by purchasing one from another player. You can also get one after clearing/harvesting herb patches if you have purchased the Scroll of life from Daemonheim Rewards, although this is random. Sometimes after hacking down jungle during the minigame, players will receive a message: "You hack away the remaining bush to reveal an unusual plant." The unusual plant only has an examine option, which reads: "Many plants such as this usually have exotic tubers." Using a spade on the plant gives the player a tuber. (The spade from your Tool belt will work.)
