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


There are several items you can use to increase the rate at which you train the Firemaking (skill).svg Firemaking skill:

Name Description
Ancient Ring of Skills (item).svg Ancient Ring of Skills The Ancient Ring of Skills is a rare drop that can be found while Fishing (skill).svg Fishing. It increases the XP gained from non-combat skills by 8%.
Firemaking Skillcape (item).svg Firemaking Skillcape The Firemaking Skillcape provides a +5% boost to XP gained in any skill when worn. While this cannot be used for training before Firemaking Level 99, it may still prove beneficial if training to a higher virtual skill level such as 120.
Pyro (pet).png Pyro The Firemaking pet provides a +1% boost to XP gained in any skill.
Book of Scholars (item).png Book of Scholars The Book of Scholars provides a +3% boost to XP gained in any skill when worn.
Art of Control (upgrade).svg Art of Control After beating the Fire God Dungeon (dungeon).svg Fire God Dungeon players can purchase Art of Control, which decreases the time per action for Firemaking and Smithing by 15%.
Devil (item).svg Devil A high level Summoning (skill).svg Summoning familiar, which reduces the burn time of logs by 5% of the base burn time when active.
Agility (skill).svg Monkey Bars When built, this obstacle provides a 4% reduction to the base burn time of logs.
Agility (skill).svg Stepping Stones When built, this obstacle provides a +3% boost to Firemaking XP gained.
Mastery.svg Log Mastery Level The burn time for a log is reduced by 0.1% for each mastery level that same log has.
Controlled Heat Potion I (item).svg Controlled Heat Potion Automatically relight Bonfires for free using the currently selected Logs.

Players should also consider utilising the Crown of Rhaelyx (item).png Crown of Rhaelyx and Agility obstacles which provide a chance to preserve resources. While this will not reduce the time spent training Firemaking (skill).svg Firemaking, it will reduce the amount of time required to gather logs in preparation of any Firemaking training.


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.

Instead of lighting bonfires manually, players may also choose to use Controlled Heat Potions, which will relight bonfires for free after the first has been lit.

Log Bonfire Bonus XP Firemaking (skill).svg Level Time Potion Doses p/hr
Normal Logs (item).svg Normal Logs 5% 1 20 secs 180
Oak Logs (item).svg Oak Logs 10% 10 30 secs 120
Willow Logs (item).svg Willow Logs 15% 25 40 secs 90
Teak Logs (item).svg Teak Logs 20% 35 50 secs 72
Maple Logs (item).svg Maple Logs 25% 45 1 min 60
Mahogany Logs (item).svg Mahogany Logs 30% 55 1 min 10 secs 51.4
Yew Logs (item).svg Yew Logs 35% 60 1 min 20 secs 45
Magic Logs (item).svg Magic Logs 40% 75 1 min 30 secs 40
Redwood Logs (item).svg Redwood Logs 45% 90 1 min 40 secs 36

Strategy: Level 1-99

Note that:

  • The With Bonfire section assumes that Controlled Heat Potions are active, as such the number of logs excludes logs used to light bonfires. Further, using the Controlled Heat Potion is highly recommended due to the significant time and log saving they provide
  • The below table assumes no XP bonuses or burn time reductions apply. In reality, the time experienced by the player will be lower than is stated below due to each log's burn time reducing by 0.1% for each Mastery.svg Mastery level that same log has, and any other burn time reductions the player may have active (See Boosts).
  • Log amounts stated are before resource preservation, so the actual number of logs used will be lower if the player is using things that provide a chance to preserve resources such as the Crown of Rhaelyx (item).png Crown of Rhaelyx or one of the many Agility obstacles that provides resource preservation.
  • If the player does not have enough Magic Logs (item).svg Magic Logs to reach level 99, then burning Yew Logs (item).svg Yew Logs instead is preferred to Redwood Logs (item).svg Redwood Logs due to their higher XP rate.

1 Due to the time taken to gather Magic Logs (item).svg Magic Logs, burning them is only worthwhile if they have already been acquired. If additional Magic Logs would have to be acquired through Woodcutting (skill).svg Woodcutting or otherwise, then consider burning Yew Logs (item).svg Yew Logs instead.
