|A raw green octopus.|
Raw karambwan is a fish native to the tropical island of Karamja. It can be fished by players with level 65 Fishing or higher, granting 105 Fishing experience per catch. Karambwans are caught with a karambwan vessel by members who must have at least started the Tai Bwo Wannai Trio quest. The vessel uses karambwanji bait obtained by using a small net in the lake south of Tai Bwo Wannai (Fairy ring C•K•R). Karambwans frequently steal the bait from the vessel without being caught. Additionally, players must manually place the bait into the vessel each time, making fishing karambwans a click intensive activity (with frequently no payoff when the bait is stolen).
The raw karambwan fishing location is north of the shipyards and east of the harpie bug swarms.
When using the raw karambwan on a heating element, the player is given 2 options of cooking it: either poorly or thoroughly. If cooked poorly, the player will get a poison karambwan. If cooked thoroughly the player will get a cooked karambwan, granting 190 Cooking experience. To be able to cook a karambwan thoroughly you must speak to Tinsay first. At level 50 cooking there is a 40% chance of burning the karambwan. Karambwan will stop burning at 93 cooking with the Hosidius range, and cooking gauntlets. Note: A Poison karambwan cannot be cooked again to obtain a cooked karambwan
The player is required to catch a karambwan as one of the medium Karamja Tasks.The player is also required to cook a karambwan thoroughly as part of the hard Karamja Tasks.
Raw karambwans can be caught much faster if you have access to the fairy rings, since you can use code C•K•R to go to the lake where karambwanji are caught, and then code D•K•P to go to the karambwan fishing spot north of the shipyard and east of the harpie bug swarms. Fairy rings are also the fastest way to access a bank (in Zanaris) from either spot.
- The only fishing spot is the north east of the Karamja main island, north of the Ship yard. Fairy ring DKP is very close.
