A gout tuber can be planted in a herb patch to grow goutweed after completing the Eadgar's Ruse quest. It cannot be planted at the disease-free Trollheim herb patch, and trying doing so the player will say "Murcaily said those wouldn't survive up here." 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 (at level 16 Constitution) and restore 100% run energy.
Gout tubers are primarily obtained during the Tai Bwo Wannai Cleanup minigame, where hacking down any jungle will have a 1% chance to be replaced with a gout tuber plant. When it spawns, the player will receive a chatbox message: The plant can be left-clicked to be dug up by players with a spade on their tool belt or in their backpack. Players can also get one after clearing or harvesting goutweed herb patches if they have read the scroll of life from the Dungeoneering Rewards shop; this requires players to plant the tuber as a seed first, however.
Safta Doc requires a gout tuber when making a gem-bladed machete for a player. Attaining such a machete completes the That's Not a Knife... achievement which is part of the medium Karamja achievements.
