Foods

  • Cabbage (heals 1 hit point) Pick from the fields and eat. (note: cabbage from Draynor Manor raises defense by +1 temporarily)
  • Meat (heals 3 or more hit points) To make, use rawmeat with fire.
  • Bread (heals 5 or more hit pointss) To make, get flour by grinding grain in the windmill, and collecting it in a pot. Then make dough by combining wheat and water (in a pot or bucket). Finally, cook the dough in a stove or on a fire to make bread.
  • Beer (heals 2 hit points and gives +1 strength, but -2 attack) You can buy it in most bars and inns.
  • Kebab (heals randomly, 1/32 chance to make you lose some HP if you are over 2 hp total. Cannot be fatal) You know about the dodgy kebabs, but what about the amazing ones? These not only give you a lot of health back (like 11 HP) but also boost your combat skills for a short while (+3 in attack, defense and strength). Thanks to Rodrigo for this information.
