Cooking UI
This page is about the skill. For the enchantment, see Cooking (Enchantment).

Cooking is a skill that allows raw ingredients to be cooked into edible food or potions. Players can add up to 5 ingredients into the pot by interacting with the ingredients window on the right and then using heat to cook them.

Food has a chance to burn, depending on the player's effective cooking level and the experience given by the recipe. Either burnt food or burnt fish is produced when failing depending on the type of ingredients used. Effective cooking level and the amount of ingredients used also affects the level of food produced, which directly affects the amount of health and buff stacks the food will have. By leveling cooking, the player is able to cook better foods that give increased healing and better buffs.

Uses[edit | edit source]

  • Recover health by eating food or drinking potions out of combat.
  • Food can be placed in the combat inventory to recover health during combat.
    - Combat buffs are only applied when food is eaten during combat and disappears when leaving combat.
  • Can be used to obtain various buffs that help in other skills such as foraging, mining, etc.
  • Cooking fish has a chance to produce fish oil which can be used in crafting to create pyre logs.

Fish Oil Chance[edit | edit source]

Oil chance is determined by the total size of fish in the pot, with each size giving 5% chance. A chance of over 100% does not give additional fish oil and a negative chance is capped at 0%.

Fish Chance*
Raw Shrimp Raw Shrimp 5%
Raw Anchovy Raw Anchovy 5%
Raw Magnetic Minnow Raw Magnetic Minnow 5%
Raw Trout Raw Trout 10%
Raw Salmon Raw Salmon 10%
Raw Lobster Raw Lobster 15%
Raw Tuna Raw Tuna 15%
Raw Tigerfish Raw Tigerfish 15%
Raw Slippery Eel Raw Slippery Eel 15%
Raw Crab Raw Crab 15%
Raw Shark Raw Shark 20%
Raw Hammerhead Shark Raw Hammerhead Shark 25%
Raw Great White Shark Raw Great White Shark 25%
Raw Huge Tuna Raw Huge Tuna 30%

*Per fish used. For example, cooking with 1 Raw Shark and 1 Raw Tuna results in a 35% chance, while cooking with 5 Raw Sharks will result in a 100% chance to receive fish oil regardless of burn chance.

Determining Produced Food[edit | edit source]

Ingredients[edit | edit source]

There are six factors associated with each ingredient:

  1. "Category" or "Tags" - This denotes which category or categories of food the ingredient belongs to. Ingredients can have multiple tags, and the value of a tag is equal to the size of the ingredient.
    • There are a total of 13 Tags: Fruit, Vegetable, Grain, Dairy, Eggs, Meat, Beast, Poultry, Fish, Monster, Spice, Sweetener, and Preservative.
  2. Size - This is used to calculate the value of the ingredient's category/tag, and the time it takes to cook the dish.
  3. XP - The amount of experience gained when the ingredient is cooked. This is used to calculate difficulty (Chance to burn the food).
  4. Heat - The amount of heat required to cook the ingredient.
  5. Difficulty - Determines the burn chance of food.
  6. Buff - The buff effect that is added to the produced food when this ingredient is cooked. Only some ingredients add buffs to food when cooked.
    • If more than one unique buff-granting ingredient is used in the same recipe, the food produced will always be Questionable Food.
    • The buff effect applies the buff with a level of 2, and cannot be increased or decreased.
    • Buffs stack with enchants from other sources such as armor. E.g., if the player has 5 Gathering scrolls on their ring and consumes a dish that grants Gathering 2, the player will have a total effect of Gathering 7.

Recipes[edit | edit source]

There are a total of 39 discovered recipes in the in-game recipe database. Each recipe has the following properties:

  1. ID - The unique ID of the recipe in the recipe list within the game's code.
  2. HP - The base hitpoint recovery value granted by the food when cooked without factoring ingredients or other quality bonuses.
  3. Value - The price that the dish can be sold to the vendor for.
  4. Ingredient Tags - The ingredient types that are required to cook the fish. E.g., the Birdie Pasta recipe has the poultry and grain tags, meaning that cooking 1x Raw Chicken and 1x Rice would create this recipe.

Food Quality[edit | edit source]

The quality of food is determined by the following formula:

Any fractional amounts gives the chance to craft a food with an additional +1 quality.

Every 40 Effective Cooking levels will provide +1 Quality to food produced.

Food Healing[edit | edit source]

The amount of HP recovered when the dish is consumed is based on the quality of food.

Seafood Curry has a base HP value of 41 HP and 8 ticks of 37 HP. A Seafood Curry with +9 Quality will recover hitpoints.

Food Buffs[edit | edit source]

The number of stacks of buff that will be applied when a dish is consumed is determined by the following formula:

Food with buffs can be created by using special buff-granting ingredients while cooking.

Cooking Speed[edit | edit source]

Cooking speed is determined by the following formula:

  • The first part of the formula represents the base cooking speed of the ingredients.
  • The second part accounts for the speed bonus from cooking stats on an augmented ladle.
  • The third part accounts for the speed bonus from the Haste enchantment.

There are further modifiers depending on the cooking types.

  • Preparation time uses the general cooking time. Preparation can be sped up indirectly with the Blitzing enchantment which prepares multiple ingredients at a time.
  • Alchemy uses the Deep Frying enchantment to speed up brewing.
  • Food cooking also uses the Deep Frying enchantment and additionally has it's duration doubled.

All cooking types are also affected by the Inferno enchantment which gives a chance to instantly complete the next action.

Difficulty[edit | edit source]

Chance of success is determined by the following formula:

where difficulty is the total difficulty of the ingredients, effLvl the effective cooking level, clvl, mlvl and olvl are the level of the Cooking, Master Chef and Overly Well Done enchantment.

Buffs[edit | edit source]

Cooking and eating food created with a few specific ingredients (see below) can give various buffs, similar to those from enchantments. The amount of buff stacks given by the food is determined by the quality of the food and players effective cooking level (base cooking level + additional modifiers such as an augmented ladle), players can hover over the cooking skill icon to see their effective level.

Identical food buffs and enchantments will stack. For example, if a player has an active 30% Inferno buff from a scroll of inferno, and a 10% inferno buff from food, they will have a total of 40%.

Food can be eaten any time out of combat to recover health, food added to the combat inventory may be used during combat. Combat buffs will only be applied if the food is eaten during combat. Combat buffs will not be kept upon exiting combat, while skill-based buffs gained from eating food in combat will be kept until used once out of combat. Non-combat buff stacks are consumed by performing an action out of combat, regardless of the type of skill being trained. I.E inferno stacks will be used even when not smithing
