Aluft Gianne snr. has decided that the time is right to expand his gnome food business. He knows that gnomish food is hard to obtain and not the most straightforward cuisine to prepare, so he has decided to provide a delivery service.
If you have the Cooking skill and the speed to deliver anywhere in RuneScape, maybe a job in the gnome fast food business is for you!
This activity ties in directly with gnome cooking, so it is advisable that you browse that article first.
To play this activity, you must have at least level 29 Cooking to complete the training section. While level 29 Cooking will mean you can play most of this activity, it is ideal to have 42 Cooking or more, so that you can make everything on the gnome menu, and hence satisfy any order that gets placed.
Although not a requirement to play, having completed The Grand Tree quest will give a massive advantage when delivering hard orders, as the gnome glider network is extremely useful for traversing RuneScape at speed, and sometimes takes a player directly to their customer.
As the world of fast food is fast(!), it is advisable that you keep your weight down to ensure you have plenty of energy to run around with.
Gianne's gnome cookbook is vital when learning about gnome cuisine. It contains all of the recipes you will need, so it is suggested you have a copy with you at all times for quick reference when you are competing against the clock to complete an order. If you have lost your cookbook, you can buy another cheaply from Hudo's food shop, just north of Gianne snr.
Similarly, as some orders will be for gnome drinks, it is beneficial to have the cocktail cookbook on hand to get your recipe quickly. If you have lost your cocktail cookbook, you can buy another cheaply from Heckel Funch's food shop, near Blurberry's bar.
When an order comes in, it is wise to head straight to the gnome shops to buy any supplies/tins or dough you will need. You may also find that, depending on your method of transportation, you might need to pay for ships or gates, etc. to get around the world.
Higher level players may find teleporting supplies such as runes, teleport tabs, jewelry and the like will make beating the clock a breeze in most cases.
It does not matter in what order you complete the training programmes, but they both must be completed if you wish to participate in the business.
The map to the right shows the location of the key people you need to speak with when training.
Gianne snr. is happy to welcome budding chefs and will happily provide you with your first copy of his cookbook, along with any ingredients you may need for his training program. If you burn or misuse the items he gives you, replacements can be bought from Hudo's foodshop nearby.
To complete Gianne's training and get his recommendation, you will need to prepare and give him the following:
When these are complete - and of course, when Gianne has taste-tested them - he will give you his recommendation.
An expert on all things 'gnome cocktail', Blurberry will welcome anyone with an interest in following his training and becoming skilled in making gnomish concoctions. Similarly to Gianne snr, Blurberry will provide you with a copy of the cocktail guide and then proceed to ask you to make him items from it. He will provide all the items you need the first time, but if you get it wrong or need more, then speak to Heckel Funch - found running the food shop nearby.
To complete Blurberry's training and get his recommendation, you will need to mix and give him the following:
Blurberry has a strong stomach for drinking cocktails one after the other, so don't be surprised when he is still standing after the Short Green Guy and gives you your recommendation for Gianne Jnr.
Welcome to the Aluft Aloft Food Delivery service! When you have located Gianne Jnr, he will explain how the activity works, and what rewards you can get from it.
When you speak with Gianne Jnr, you will find that he is constantly on the phone, taking orders from all around RuneScape. There are easy orders and there are hard orders.
When you are 'on task' you will have a delivery basket in your inventory. If you click on this, it will show you your current delivery target, food/drink and time remaining. The time remaining is also displayed in the chat window every minute. If you click to continue on this text (shown below-right), a hint of the target's location can be requested.
If you turn down a hard order then you cannot take another hard order for five minutes. When turning down an easy order, this time is much less (1-2 minutes). The gnomes calling for deliveries have strict timescales for when they want their food/drink, so be warned that if you log out during a delivery, the time continues, making it likely that when you log back in, the delivery time has passed.
The aim of the game is to gain at least 12 'credits', which are earned through making deliveries.
For completing an easy order, you will receive 1 credit, a cash based tip, and a small Cooking XP award. For completing a hard order, you will receive 3 credits, an item based tip, and a small Cooking XP award from around 40 XP to several hundred.
12 credits gets you one item on the reward token (see the rewards section below). As this token can hold up to 10 items of food or drink, the maximum credits you can get is 120. You can continue delivering after this for tips; however, no more food items will be added to the token.
Aside from the Cooking experience you receive for mixing drinks and Cooking food and delivering it, you can also get useful and unique items from deliveries. For the experience you will receive from Cooking gnomish recipes, check the Gnome cooking page.
As you will have gathered, the gnomes only deliver to gnomes, so you should be honoured that when you get 12 credits, you are presented with the reward token. You can only have 1 token at any one time, and it only has one use, so make sure you use it when you really want to.
Right-clicking shows the options that you have. Clicking the 'check' option shows how many items you can have delivered if you 'activate' it. This number will go up by one for every 12 credits you receive by completing orders. You can have credit for a maximum of ten items.
When you activate the token, the gnomes will pinpoint your location in RuneScape, and then after a short wait, the food/drinks will arrive - terrorchick style!
When the gnome has made his big announcement of your order, he will pass you the amount of items you are permitted (found again by 'checking' the token). These items will be randomly selected from the gnome food and drink menu, but effectively you could be carrying ten food items in one inventory slot (please remember that the food, when delivered, will require ten free inventory slots).
Aside from getting items such as gnome balls, noted uncut gems, clean herbs or even half keys, there are a few unique items that you may randomly receive as a tip for completing a hard order.
Gnomish mint cake
Gnomes are known for Agility, shortcuts and speeding up travel; maybe they are so fast because they eat mint cakes which restore 100% of your run energy. A few of these are a fairly common reward.
Even gnomes have to keep warm! Some make their way to the top of mountains after all, so as a random reward, you may receive this uniquely styled scarf. These can only be obtained from Captain Ninto and Captain Daerkin.
The Grand seed pod
As a random reward, you may frequently receive a few grand seed pods; a seed pod from the Grand Tree itself. This item will be destroyed on use; however, it is tradeable and stackable.
The Grand Tree is a tree like no other - it has magical properties of some sorts, and so do the pods from which it grew.
If you receive this item, aside from the fact they are stackable, they also have a few uses, found on the right-click menu.
If you 'squash' the pod, you will soon notice that the roots of the Grand Tree appear, and pull you back to the main ground floor room of the Grand Tree, where the King resides. For squashing a pod so precious, you will temporarily lose 5 Farming levels. If you continue to squash pods, this effect will continue.
If you 'launch' the pod, it sends a signal (outdoor use only) into the sky, from which a gnome pilot can see you. He will appear after a short amount of time, and take you to the glider station atop the Grand Tree. Doing this will also grant 100 Farming experience.
Neither of these functions will work in the deeper parts of the Wilderness.
