Rocktail detail

Rocktail is a type of fish that can only be found in the Living Rock Caverns. The Living Rock Caverns are located underneath the Dwarven Mine, which is located under Falador and extends to Ice Mountain. Players need 90 Fishing to catch rocktails and a Cooking level of 93 to cook them. They stop burning at level 94 only if wearing cooking gauntlets. They give 225 Cooking experience per fish which adds to 378,000 experience per hour, or, with decorated cooking urns, 474,000 experience per hour. Cooking one inventory of rocktails, as with any food cooked in the same way, takes about 50 seconds.

Rocktail heal up to 2,300 life points, depending on your Constitution level; the optimum healing for rocktail starts at level 92. They can also boost a player's life points by 10% above the maximum.

The minimum Constitution level to receive the full amount of healing from this food is 92.

Enter your Constitution level name=skillstat_Constitution_level|type=int|value=1|range=1,99|size=4|sublist=calchealing

let(base,92) let(hp,skillstat_Constitution_level) if(hp < base){




} let(healing,"Rocktail will heal " + heal + " life points at level "+hp+".")

A series of tests conducted with cooking gauntlets equipped yielded a burn rate of 27 rocktails out of 3,969, or 0.68%, at the minimum level required to cook them (93).
