Untitled[edit source]

does anyone know the cooking xp? ~leinad177

-When released, cooked rocktail was set at 1,400 coins and raw rocktail at 1,300 coins in the Grand Exchangeand at forum is 10k cooked/raw rocktail,some player even offer 35k, people who buy rocktail normally are mercher that they look ge price will going up. -I'm sorry, but this isn't even English.

You can burn rocktail with 99 cooking and cooking gloves. Had someone burn 5 out of 23 with both skill cape and cooking gloves on.

Tomomi 12:46, January 28, 2011 (UTC) Impossible. Even at level 93 cooking the burn rate is lower than 1%, the chances of someone burning 5 in an inventory are lower than 4.165 * 10^(-10) %. If you don't get that, that's lower than the chances of winning a 4 digit lottery twice in a row. Below 93 cooking you can't even cook it, so disease draining his stats can't cause that either. I don't know where you get your information from, but it's clearly not a source that has any place on Runewiki.

0% burn rate at 99 w/ cooking gauntlets[edit source]

I can confirm you burn no rocktail at 99 cooking with cooking gauntlets. I don't know what that unsigned post up here was talking about. Fishing Rct101Crafting 07:36, September 19, 2009 (UTC)

Err...How much did you cook? Santa hat.png Powers38 おはようヾ(´・ω・`) 07:51, September 20, 2009 (UTC)

Ummmm... Rocktail isn't stackable. I'm changing it. --Compdude123 23:46, November 4, 2009 (UTC)

Is the examine right? Shouldn't it be "nicely cooked"?

Not sure, and I tried changing, but I messed it up, so reverted. Crazycheese2 19:30, December 29, 2009 (UTC)

Not only do I never burn rocktail at 99 cooking with the gauntlets, I trained 95-99 cooking with nothing but rocktail and never burned a single one out of all those thousands. I don't understand how some people would be burning them up to/at level 99 with the gauntlets. Pet cat (purple) chathead.pngAhiaorinaTalk 20:23, January 12, 2010 (UTC)

It has been confirmed...[edit source] will "NOT" burn Rocktails at 95 cooking with Cooking Gauntlets On. You will profit about 900 gp per rocktail, and it takes 18,946 Rocktails to get to 99 from 95. This is approximately a 1,856,708 gold profit. However, the total costs is 34,368,044 gold for all Rocktails. (Considering the Grand Exchange Price does not Change.)=====

As of 11/17/2011 rocktail are a very good flipping item it has the hockey shape chart.

Experience per hour[edit source]

So what is everyones xp/hr?

At lvl 92 and without any fishing boosts, my catch rate is around 34k/hr  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Nictalis (talk).

You can max at 45k exp per hour fishing rocktail.

When do you stop burning?[edit source]

This is confusing! It says that you stop burning these at 95 with Cooking gauntlets on, but then on the little box below, it says that you stop burning them at 94 with Cooking gauntlets? Can someone confirm which one is true. 06:26, August 14, 2010 (UTC) Ok. I see someone has changed it. Thank you!

--> Can rocktail be fished at level 85 fishing + eating admiral pie (+5 fishing boost)?


Tomomi 12:46, January 28, 2011 (UTC) Yes, that's done commonly to complete the Falador Elite Achievement Diary task.

The trivia section says rocktail are the third fastest fishing experience in Runescape, but what are the #1 and #2 fastest fishing experience?


I'd guess fly fishing trout/salmon and heavy rod fishing. --Andorin (Talk) (Contribs) 06:16, February 8, 2011 (UTC)

Stop Burn Level.

Just cooked near 10k rocktails starting at level 94, I didn't burn a single one. I did use cooking guantlets.

Hope my feedback can help somebody get perspective on the real no-burn level for rocktails. 16:09, July 8, 2011 (UTC)Rory

Confirmed. At 94 cooking you will not burn a single rocktail if wearing cooking gauntlets. Sample size a little over 3000, or basically the entire 94-95 level. Page updated, I'll see if I can track down any other references. Farmyboy 21:01, July 21, 2011 (UTC)

Trivia Section[edit source]

If somebody can't confirm the dungeoneering fishing experience rate of 100k per hour then someone please remove it. I have tested it myself and have gotten no more than 60,000 experience per hour. The only reason why I won't remove it is that there may be alterations to the method that I may not know about. For what its worth I have asked friends, strangers, and searched the forums and everyone seems to say that dungeoneering fishing in Class 2 dungeons is fast but have never once seen anyone that has actually tested it. -and if somebody would please test it I'd appreciate it if they could add a section to the fishing guide about it Elpasojerry 22:24, November 5, 2011 (UTC)


'Roc'ktails are based on real life Rockfish not the fish mentioned in the Trival

i think this sould also be mentioned as it is pretty trvial that is what is is based on

Misplaced info[edit source]

This is about the cooked fish. 90% of the stuff on this page concerns catching and cooking the fish, which should be on the page about the raw fish, surely? The page doesn't even mention a lifepoint boost when at maximum.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).

Removed some info from the rocktail page. Can't help with the max boost though, sorry. Small recharge gem.png AnselaJonla Slayer-icon.png 19:40, July 7, 2013 (UTC)

Calculator values incorrect[edit source]

I've noticed that the calculator for how many life points are restored is completely wrong. Not even giving the full 2300 lp at 99 Constitution, when 2300 is already healed at 92 Constitution. I've tried to edit the page to correct this but can't seem to find anything related to the calculator. Any hints?

Iyashu5040 (talk) 18:18, October 9, 2014 (UTC)

Unfortunately the calculator is broken, and the one person who says they know how to fix it is not, for whatever reason. Small recharge gem.png AnselaJonla Slayer-icon.png 18:19, October 9, 2014 (UTC)
The calculator has been broken since the last changes to healing amounts of food; and even before that failed for things like rocktail soup. We'll just have to wait for the author to fix it (or someone else who can spend their time on it, and figure out the math). The calculator itself it found at Template:Food calculator. IP83.101.44.209 (talk) 18:21, October 9, 2014 (UTC)
I'm taking a look at the template, as well as the mechanics of lp calculation. I'll be editing the template with the proper values if that's ok? Iyashu5040 (talk) 18:30, October 9, 2014 (UTC)
If you can fix it, go right ahead. IP83.101.44.209 (talk) 18:31, October 9, 2014 (UTC)

Skilling weekend burn rate[edit source]

Just throwing this data in here in case someone finds it useful: I tested cooking 1,000 raw rocktails at the Tower of Voices bonfire at level 99 Cooking without boosts both during May and Winter skilling weekends where the burn rate is supposedly reduced, and yet another 1,000 outside a weekend. Results were a bit strange: 170 were burned normally out of the 1,000. On May weekend I actually burned more: 176, and the Winter Weekend resulted in the exact same 170 as normally. I bet the weekend boost just doesn't work, or is too minimal to have effect Thingummywut (talk) 22:47, January 5, 2018 (UTC)

Cooked 370 more using the same setup. This time the result seems to suggest that the boost does work: burned 86. That's 346/2000 burned during a weekend (17.3% burn rate) and 256/1370 burned outside a weekend (~18.7% burn rate). Thingummywut (talk) 18:50, February 13, 2018 (UTC)
Experimenting continues: 171/1,000 burned this time during a weekend boost. Still not that sure that the boost is working. At most it's like 10% boost. Thingummywut (talk) 15:03, July 29, 2018 (UTC)
