|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 fishing net in the lake south of Tai Bwo Wannai (fairy ring ckr). Karambwans frequently steal the bait from the vessel without being caught.
The raw karambwan fishing location is north of the shipyards and east of the Harpie Bug Swarms (fairy ring dkp).
When using a 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. A poison karambwan cannot be cooked again to obtain a cooked karambwan. To be able to cook a karambwan thoroughly, you must speak to Tinsay first.
Karambwan will stop burning at 99 Cooking (assuming they are being cooked thoroughly) or 93 Cooking if they are cooked using the Hosidius House range.
- Note: Wearing Cooking gauntlets while cooking karambwan DOES NOT decrease the chances of burning them.
Catching a karambwan is one of the tasks required in the Medium Karamja Diary. Cooking a karambwan thoroughly is also required to complete the Hard Karamja Diary.
Raw karambwan can be caught much faster if you have access to the fairy rings, since you can use code ckr to go to the lake where karambwanji are caught, and then code dkp to go to the karambwan fishing spot north of the Ship Yard and east of the Harpie Bug Swarms. Fairy rings are also the fastest way to access a bank (in Zanaris) from either spot.
Raw karambwan can also be bought from Tiadeche's Karambwan Stall which is a popular way of obtaining the raw karambwan due to the shops fast restock rate and relatively low price of 110-146gp each, depending on stock.
- The only fishing spot is the northeast of the Karamja main island, north of the Ship Yard. The fairy ring dkp is very close.
