Rocktail detail

Rocktail are fish found in the Living Rock Caverns by catching Raw Rocktail. They require a Cooking level of 93 to cook and stop burning at level 94 only if wearing cooking gauntlets. They give 225 Cooking experience per fish (228 when a dwarven army axe is wielded after some completion of some Burthorpe/Taverley tasks), which means 378,000 experience per hour, or, with a dwarven army axe and decorated cooking urns, 474,000 experience per hour. Cooking one inventory of rocktail, as with any food cooked in the same way, takes about 50 seconds.

Rocktail heal up to 2300 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.

} 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 3969, or 0.68%, at the minimum level required to cook them (93).
