Firemaking.png Firemaking is a skill that allows players to light fires and light sources. To train firemaking, a player must obtain some logs through woodcutting or trading, and then use a tinderbox on them. If the player does not have a tinderbox, he or she may buy one at a general store.


Fires, also known as cookfires, logfires, or campfires, are one of the things a player can light using the firemaking skill. As the player's firemaking level increases, he or she will be able to create campfires out of higher quality logs. Below is a table showing the various types of log fires a player can burn, and the experience gained from them:
