Flambeed is the second boss of Recipe for Disaster: Defeating the Culinaromancer, the final subquest of Recipe for Disaster, and is made of giant hot cakes. Players will need to wear ice gloves while fighting him, or else they will not be able to wield a weapon. He is a reincarnation of Fareed and can be defeated accordingly. Players can visit the bank between each boss.
Flambeed is fight-able along with Agrith-Na-Na and Dessourt as a class D boss monster in the Dominion Tower minigame if the player has completed Recipe For Disaster.
Flambeed is weak to any Water spell, including ice spells. Stunning him, putting a distance between you and him, then casting your strongest Water or Ice spell and repeating this process is a quick and easy way to take care of this monster, and is highly recommended. He uses melee and magic attacks, so players should bring food since prayer is not allowed. His melee attack is the more dangerous attack due to its accuracy, so it is advised to maintain distance from him as much as possible. Ice spells are especially useful for this purpose as they stun him. Ranging him is not recommended, as he has high ranged defence. It is not recommended to melee him either, as his melee attack is extremely accurate. Regardless of your approach, you will need to bring ice gloves to wield a weapon. Otherwise, when he attacks you, it will be unequipped, and you will be unable to fight him back except by punching him - you won't even be able to cast spells or use magic abilities.
The update history project is a work-in-progress – not all updates to this topic may be covered below. See here for how to help out!
- Flambeed is a food-related pun combing flambé and Fareed, one of the bosses from the Desert Treasure quest.
- Before the Evolution of Combat, Goliath gloves could be used at full strength against Flambeed without need for ice gloves.
- Originally, Flambeed had a combat level of 149. This was changed to 199 with the release of the Dominion Tower. It was changed again to 128 with the release of the Evolution of Combat, and to 89 after the release of Legacy Mode.
- After the release of the Evolution of Combat, Flambeed could hit for very high amounts of damage with his melee attacks, often over 5000, regardless of whether Ice gloves were equipped. This was fixed by Jagex on release of RuneScape 3 on 22 July 2013, who confirmed in the patch notes it was caused by a typo that gave him ten times the melee strength than intended.
