A Gout tuber is a rare item which can be planted in a herb patch to grow Goutweed. It cannot be planted at the disease-free Troll Stronghold herb patch. Goutweed can be traded to Sanfew, in Taverley, for random herbs at a 1:1 ratio. It is highly recommended that players do not grow Goutweed since the herbs received from Sanfew are random.

The nearby gardener will not watch over your growing Goutweed.

A Gout tuber can only be obtained while hacking jungles during the Tai Bwo Wannai Cleanup activity, or by trading other players. Sometimes after hacking down jungle during the activity, players will receive a message: "You hack away the remaining bush to reveal an unusual plant." The unusual plant has a 1% chance of appearing when hacking any kind of jungle[1], and only has an examine option, which reads: "Many plants such as this usually have exotic tubers." Using a spade on the plant gives the player a tuber.

Safta Doc requires a gout tuber when making a gem-bladed machete for a player. Attaining such a machete is a medium task in the Karamja Diary.


  • A similar item to a Gout tuber identified as a Goutweedy lump appears in My Arm's Big Adventure when a human was boiled into a stew along with a lump of Gout tuber he possessed, the man was eaten but lumpy remnants of the tuber can be found in the Cooking Pot at Death Plateau.
  • Before an update on 30 March 2017, gout tubers can be dug up by other players. If a player left it alone after it appears, someone else could dig it up.
