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


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. Generally, this is not worth the effort, as the fire must be relit manually each time and consumes a great deal of logs.

Instead of lighting bonfires manually, players should use Controlled Heat Potion I (item).svg Controlled Heat Potions, which will relight bonfires for free after the first has been lit. It is not advisable to fully level up Firemaking without these potions, as the bonus is significant. It requires only Herblore Level 20, as well as Mahogany Logs (item).svg Mahogany Logs. This can be combined with the Devil (item).svg Devil and Bear (item).svg Bear Summoning synergy for another 5% bonus XP, if available.

Note that:

  • The With Bonfire section assumes that Controlled Heat Potion I (item).svg Controlled Heat Potions are active, as such the number of logs excludes logs used to light bonfires. Further, using Controlled Heat Potion I (item).svg Controlled Heat Potions 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 Boosters).
  • 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, Astrology (skill).svg Astrology Modifiers, or one of the many Agility (skill).svg 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.
