Level Advancement Tables[edit source]

I know it really doesn't matter, but the first 2 tables' advice for levels 10-30 involve food that you can't start cooking until level 15. Was going to change the first section to 1-15, but I'm sure others may know better methods for the low levels.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) on 01:51, November 30, 2011.

Clean-Up Required[edit source]

This article is in need of some re-coding and checking do to the fact that errors are occuring when the system tries to calcuclate prices and everything like that. I would do it myself, but I'm not that computer smart. Thanks! Royboo 00:04, July 3, 2010 (UTC)

remove f2p cooking spots?[edit source]

This is a p2p cooking guide and unless a certain f2p spot has a advantage over another, it shouldn't be included in this guide since the title assumes the person reading this is a member.-- 16:50, September 20, 2009 (UTC)

Alternative way to train cooking without paying?[edit source]

Being able to build an Oak Larder with a range in your house allows you to just bring a cake tin, collect ingredients from the larder and cook them,you can just drop the cakes and you can stay there until you get your desired cooking level. This should be worth mentioning as this can be done with a decent construction level and only 40 cooking.--Moneypony 04:27, October 4, 2009 (UTC)

Cooks' Guild ground floor range bonus[edit source]

Is there a bonus to cook lvl there??? Discuss here! Air rune.png Tollerach hates SoF Fire rune.png 00:23, February 15, 2010 (UTC)

Cooking with cooking gauntlets[edit source]

It says that its 214b profit to get 99 cooking with gaunties, can anyone fix this?

Yea, you shouldn't get profit at all, because raw rocktail is more expensive than cooked rocktail. --AttackPenko TCE 16:07, March 20, 2010 (UTC)
It was just some ip vandalizing Exchange:Rocktail page, fixed. --AttackPenko TCE 16:09, March 20, 2010 (UTC)





This is a wiki which anyone can improve. If you see something wrong, please be bold and improve it :) Ajraddatz Talk 23:53, March 27, 2010 (UTC)

Number needed until next step[edit source]

It says u need to cook 26,610 sharks to get 99, but that's not true. It is impossible not to burn any shark, which means u need more sharks to get 99.

"Cooking with cooking gauntlets" and "Cooking without cooking gauntlets"[edit source]

How about "Cooking with cooking gauntlets on the Lumbridge castle range"?

--AttackPenko TCE 14:19, May 6, 2010 (UTC)

There seems to be a problem with this section D: TyA

Big Problem with the tables[edit source]

There seems to be a big problem with some of the data in the tables. I have no idea how to fix it, and I'm hoping someone will read this and fix it, or show it to someone who can. TyA 00:45, May 8, 2010 (UTC)

Someone vandalized salmon's Exchange page. --AttackPenko TCE 15:38, May 10, 2010 (UTC)

Swordfish "Sell for" part wrong[edit source]

It says under swordfish in sell for that you sell 22k swordfish for 22k.. thats wrong, could someone fix it? Idk how.

Edit: Fixed.

Cooking Urns[edit source]

Since it's much faster to train with cooking urns, should we readjust the xp rates per hour accordingly? Flajuram 21:14, February 18, 2011 (UTC)

Cleanup[edit source]

The prices are outdated, with recent changes in the market for the speculated double xp weekend this needs to be updated often to not confuse players...  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Godgivenfate (talk) on 09:42, August 1, 2011.

If I get the time in the next few weeks I'll try to add some kind of a dynamic table. At the moment sharks are cheaper than monkfish from level 83-84 and even profitable at 85 (Burned fish loss included). Zaros symbol.png De Lutsi  - 13:29, September 4, 2011 (UTC)

Outdated Images[edit source]

In the "Best Locations" area for P2P, there's an image of the old TzHaar area. Virtually the entire layout of that place was changed drastically, so could someone update or remove that section? I'm not particularly skilled at coding. 04:05, March 14, 2012 (UTC)

amount monkfish[edit source]

the amount of monkfish needed to get 92 cooking is wrong, it says you need about 16k, but it is more like 22k. 14:59, April 7, 2012 (UTC)

Then why not just edit the page yourself and change it? 15:42, April 7, 2012 (UTC)

Untitled[edit source]

Now with bonfires, you should put that on w100, in shantay pass, is a very good spot as there are nonstop skillers there doing firemaking. Nifty.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) on 19:02, June 26, 2012.

Verbatim quote pulled from article[edit source]

"Needs Updating**
Monkfish were averaging over a 7% burn rate at 84 cooking, but gives less than a 7% xp increase over Swordfish (which don't burn at 84). There is also less than a 7% (roughly 3%) profit margin between cooked/uncooked monkfish. This means that Swordfish are better XP at lvl84 (lower xp rate is made up for by not burning any), and you make a profit as "currently" Swordfish sell for more than raw swordfish (whereas you lose money on monkfish due to all the burning). Items used are cooking gauntlets, dwarven army axe (+3xp per cooked item), and bonfire (10% xp boost)." (Thought this was better left in discussion rather than the body of the article - perhaps a little header could be made claiming the article is disputed).

POH training method[edit source]

Hello. I was reading this page as I'm planning on leveling up my cooking a bit, and I read about the POH training method that recommends you to teleport to your house, grab a Chef's delight from a barrel in your house, cook food, tele Edgy and so on... but then I read on this page that you can't take the beer outside of your house? I haven't tried it myself, but if it indeed is not possible, then I think that section should be removed from the cooking training guide.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) on 23:28, September 25, 2013‎.

Well, if things are indeed being done in the order that you say they are, then it's entirely possible, as you're never taking the Chef's delight outside of your house. --Jamamon (talk) 23:39, September 25, 2013 (UTC)

Portable Range[edit source]

I'm wondering if we should include the portable range at the Range section as it's a very good way of training cooking, it gives 21% xp and a 5% chance to double the food. Although, obviously, it's hard to obtain without buying it since it's on TH and the street price is around 65k per range. --JorisCeoen 21:53, May 26, 2014 (UTC)

Yup it should be included. And you can now get them shared at "Portables FC" friends chat which runs almost 24/7.

Best xp (AND PROFIT) at lvl 67+[edit source]

At level 67 cooking, combining a bowl of tuna (580gp) and cooked sweetcorn (48gp) gives 202xp and gives Tuna and Corn (1100gp) for over 80% profit. It also takes half the amount of game ticks to complete the task, as opposed to cooking fish. It can however be hard to buy the tuna/sell the tuna+corn, but if the player is willing to simply break even (700 for bowls, sell for 800 [52gp profit]), it can be an easy way to gain about 4x the xp of cooking tuna (per unit of time) 23:44, November 27, 2014 (UTC) Hero ofThyme (RS3)

New Fish[edit source]

Three new fish have been added — Desert sole, Catfish, and Beltfish. They need to be added to the guide.-- F-Lambda (talk) 07:17, June 21, 2017 (UTC)

Raw Catfish/Swordfish in 2019[edit source]

This information did not age well; raw catfish are now twice the price and due to the lack of f2p demand, don't sell well cooked either (nothing near 1/7th as previously stated at an unknown time). Is it possible to revert that section of the table back to Swordfish some time? Techhead7890 (talk) 13:40, 22 March 2019 (UTC)

To be clear, raw prices are: 491 to 263 (raw cat/sword) for 5 xp difference. Likewise 804gp raw beltfish to 649gp raw monkfish, 15xp in favour of the beltfish (165xp to 150) but still not particularly worth it from an efficiency perspective. Techhead7890 (talk) 13:52, 22 March 2019 (UTC)
Go for it! (and ask in Discord/talk pages etc. if you get stuck) ^^ - Rawny (talk) 12:24, 30 March 2019 (UTC)

Bank With Glory[edit source]

I'm pretty sure teleporting to Shantay Pass/Al Kharid with glory is faster banking than teleporting to Edgeville? RastaJedi (talk) 05:57, 29 April 2019 (UTC)

Desert Soles instead of Lobsters[edit source]

I find it questionable that the guide recommends cooking Desert Soles instead of Lobs for the reasons given: 1) No longer efficient. 2) Cost less. 3) Better exp. 4) Menaphos.

Desert Soles:

142.5xp/ea GE: 345gp/ea (As of writing)

Notes: - Stops burning at level 81 Cooking *with* cooking gauntlets otherwise never. - If fishing them yourself, banking is a long walk and there is no nearby range. Not sure about the distance if you actually have the bank chest unlocked for that district. - An inventory slot is taken up due to bait - At level 58 Cooking, I cooked these at the Lumbridge Range with Cooking Gauntlets and burned 5-7 each time. That's a loss of 712.5xp - 997.5xp.

Raw Lobs:

120xp/ea GE: 355gp/ea (As of writing)

Notes: - Stops burning at level 74 Cooking (64 with gauntlets), rarely at 60. - If fishing them yourself, the lobster pot is on the toolbelt saving one extra inventory slot. There's a nearby Bank and Range in Catherby. Requires no additional bait. - At level 58 Cooking, I burnt 1 lobster from two inventories at the Lumbridge Range with Cooking Gauntlets.

I question if whoever wrote this guide was drunk. Kyxlect (talk) 00:14, 20 July 2022 (UTC)

It removed all of the new lines I had for different points. Dunno why, but that's why the text got all scrambled. Kyxlect (talk) 00:19, 20 July 2022 (UTC)

It is interesting, especially since it then changes to swordfish. Lobsters are probably better at 58 is the burn rate is that high. If you don't burn, swordfish is more efficient than both. Desert soles are more efficient than lobsters if you don't burn. Fishing them yourself is a bad idea, extremely inefficient. But if you do, the Menaphos fish are way faster and the deposit box/bank is way closer in both the port district and the VIP area than in Catherby. The one lost slot is irrelevant due to that. Closeness to a range has no effect at all. Non-irons should always use a portable range at for example Lumbridge market while irons should use a fire. The important price is the difference between raw and cooked, not the price of the raw. ArcticFire (talk) 23:21, 24 July 2022 (UTC)
