Gout tuber detail
Gout tuber plant

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.)

Safta Doc requires a gout tuber when making a gem-bladed machete for a player. Attaining such a machete is a medium task in the Karamja Diary.

Trivia Edit

  • A similar item to a Gout tuber identified as a Goutweedy lump appears in My Arm's Big Adventure when a human was boiled into a stew along with a lump of Gout tuber he possessed, the man was eaten but lumpy remnants of the tuber can be found in the Cooking Pot at Death Plateau.
  • If more than one person starts digging up a gout tuber random event at the same time, both players will dig up a gout tuber.
