so, i browse the GE database like once a day to check on a particular set of items. However i notice things occasionally on the movers/shakers list. I am familiar with most items in the game but, these caught my eye.





Crayfish, well that came with the lumbridge A/D



Truffle

Button Mushroom



these two, i however have no idea what they are. And the Button mushroom is on a 750% rise, so I assume they are in fact new.





does anyone have any idea what these are used for currently? if their is one? because i can only see it being an addition to cooking. No, sorry this isnt something like OMFG WE GET ARCHEOLOGY. Unfortunately, it just might mean we get a bit of an interesting cooking/herblore.





also, no seeds to these items were found, ruling out a farm update.





if anyone knows or can find out where these two items grow in real life maybe we might have a clue to a possible new area(s)



but, i am going to bed now.

Button mushrooms are items from the spirit of summer quest, they grow on a log there, no idea why they are tradeable, didn;t even know they were.



Truffle-no idea.
Hmmm....

I need a new siggy, get round to doing it later.

Probably.

Truffles are generally black, round mushrooms. They grow near the base of trees in Europe and gatherers of said mushroom would send a dog or a hog to look for them in the forest. They are known to be incredibly gourmet in the culinary world.

hm, i knew all that except for the europe part. I do believe some are white, but are more rare.





Also, do we know what the truffles are for? i havent done the last 3 quests so excuse me on that button mushroom part.

before i knew the mushrooms were apart of another quest i figured, they might be found some where. Like in a fairy area, since they use a lot of mushrooms, or maybe even the elf lands.





The elf lands honestly to me seem like a great place for something new like these items. But, we know about some already.





and the crayfish thing also seemed a bit weird that we got it. Just weird that they added another level 1 fish. Is it maybe part of the tutorial island thing?

The reason button mushrooms are on a 750% rise is A: Each person can only get 3 normally, B: Like all rareish items, there are collectors and people who are willing to spend a fortune and C: Every item introduced it's percentage is what it is because it was boosted from 0 gp to whatever it's price is.
