This article is about the Firemaking skill. For training the skill, see Firemaking/Training.

Firemaking is the ancient art of making fires. Increasing the Firemaking skill level allows the player to purchase higher tier cooking fires from the Shop. Burning a log has a 40% chance to give one Coal Ore (item).svg Coal Ore. Raising Firemaking to Firemaking Level 99 will unlock the Firemaking Skillcape (item).svg Firemaking Skillcape for purchase from the Shop. Equipping the Skillcape increases the chance to receive Coal Ore from burning logs to 100%, and provides a 5% bonus to experience gained from any skill.

Purchasing the Art of Control (upgrade).svg Art of Control upgrade reduces the time to burn a log by 15%, and the Devil (item).svg Devil familiar will reduce this by a further 5% of the base burn time. In addition, Mastery.svg Mastery can be used to reduce the burn time further still, with the 25% pool checkpoint reducing burn time by 10%, plus an additional 0.1% reduction for each mastery level in the log being burned.


While firemaking the player has the option to light a bonfire at the cost of 10 logs. This action itself does not give experience; bonfires instead provide bonus experience for firemaking when lit. By using Controlled Heat Potions, bonfires will automatically be started at the cost of no logs.
