Gabooty chathead

Gabooty is one of the natives in Tai Bwo Wannai Village, a small village located on Karamja. He wanders around inside the village walls and acts as the village store. In order to see him you need to have completed the quest Jungle Potion. Both stores can only be used after asking Gabooty what he does around there, after which they will be unlocked for future right-click use. Unlike regular stores, Gabooty uses trading sticks for currency, these may be earned in the Tai Bwo Wannai Cleanup minigame. Gabooty also hands out trading sticks to players who have the appropriate favour percentage and who have not asked him for sticks in a while.

Gabooty is also the destination for a medium clue challenge scroll with the anagram "Got A Boy". He will give you a challenge scroll, asking how many buildings are in the village, the answer to which is 11.

  • Gabooty's name is probably drawn from that of the nation of Djibouti (jih-boo-tee), which is located in Africa. Karamja is based on the jungles of Africa and the Caribbean, so it is probably a reference to that relation. Despite this, Djibouti is located on the east coast of Africa and contains no jungles, instead cointaining a very arid climate.
