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. 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.

They may only be obtained during the Tai Bwo Wannai Cleanup minigame, by trading other players, or through the Grand Exchange. Players can also get one after clearing/harvesting goutweed herb patches if they have read the scroll of life from the Dungeoneering Rewards shop. Sometimes after hacking down jungle during the minigame, players will receive a message: You hack away at the remaining bush to reveal an unusual plant. The unusual plant only has an examine option, "Many plants such as this usually have exotic tubers." Using a spade on the plant gives the player a tuber. The spade from the tool belt will work.

The gout tuber has a 1% chance of appearing when hacking any jungle, regardless of thickness.[1]

Safta Doc requires a gout tuber when making a gem-bladed machete for a player. Attaining such a machete is a medium Karamja achievement.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • A similar item to a gout tuber identified as a goutweedy lump appears in My Arm's Big Adventure when a human was boiled into a stew along with a lump of gout tuber he possessed. The man was eaten but lumpy remnants of the tuber can be found in the Cooking Pot at Death Plateau.
  • If more than one person starts digging up a gout tuber random event at the same time, both players will dig up a gout tuber.
