|Examine||A very strange eel.|
Raw lava eels require level 53 fishing to catch, and level 53 Cooking to cook to turn it into a lava eel. Fishing them gives 60 Fishing experience. Raw lava eels may be caught using an oily fishing rod and bait in the lava rivers found in Taverley Dungeon or in the Wilderness Lava Maze. The Fishing rod-o-matic cannot catch lava eels.
Players who wish to reside in Taverley dungeon for extensive periods of time can bring equipment (logs, tinderbox, oily fishing rod and bait) to fish and cook the lava eels to produce food for combat. This is especially true for players given black demons or blue dragons as a Slayer task.
During the Heroes' Quest, guild-master Achetties will ask players to obtain a cooked lava eel to prove that they are worthy of membership to the Heroes' Guild. Players will then need to visit Gerrant in Port Sarim to learn how to make an oily fishing rod, followed by going to either Taverley Dungeon or the Wilderness Lava Maze to catch an eel.
