Red spice (4) detail.png

Red spice is one of the four spices dropped by Hellrats in Evil Dave's basement. If red spice is used in a stew, it becomes a Spicy stew, which can temporarily raise or drain the stats of Attack, Strength, Defence, Ranged and Magic. The amount it can raise these stats depends on how many doses used in the stew (between 1 and 3). Each dose of spice can cause the boost to either increase or decrease a stat by -2 to +2. Once all 4 doses are used, it becomes an Empty spice shaker, which cannot be used for anything. Red spices are essentially useless, since potions can be used to give better bonuses with consistency.

Spices of the same colour can be used with each other, so that they are combined to save space. The maximum number of doses is 4. Once all doses are used, it becomes an Empty spice shaker, which is currently useless.

It is suggested that you use a Wily cat to catch the Hellrats because they offer a better chance to kill the rats than any other feline. At the very least, one should not use kittens, as their success rate is extremely low. After the completion of Evil Dave's Big Day Out, players can catch them bare-handed and the use of a wily cat is unnecessary.
