RS3 Firemaking Guide

Before we get into the ways of which you can train your firemaking level with, you will need to know about items and buffs that will make your journey to 99 or 200m much easier. If you are not interested in this part of the guide, please skip to the section titled “1-99 Firemaking”.

Bonfires and Fire Lines

Fire lines is the traditional way of training Firemaking. It’s where you get an inventory of logs and start burning them in a line, one by one. This method is not afkable but it is significantly faster than bonfire training.

Bonfire training is where you light a log and add logs to it. There are also some permanent bonfires throughout the game. You also receive rewards while doing this activity in the form of fire spirits. This is 100% afkable but is slower than line firemaking.

Prifddinas/Max Guild Bonfire

These are the two most popular bonfires in the game. They give the same experience as a bonfire with 5 people around it and they also have a chance to save the log that you have used.

Tinderbox & Augmented Tinderbox

Tinderbox is the only equipment needed for you to start firemaking, this is automatically placed in every player's inventory so you don’t need to buy one. 

Augmented tinderboxes can be created after level 22 Invention. This also unlocks augmented crystal tinderboxes. You can add a tool gizmo to your augmented tinderbox to gain some benefits. Best perks to have while training your firemaking is as follows:

  • Tinker 4: Has a 20% chance to carry out a higher quality work, awarding 25% experience.
  • Pyromaniac 6 & Rapid 2: Has a 0.6% chance of burning all logs of the same type from the inventory.

Has a 10% chance to carry out work at a faster pace.

Ring of Fire and Flame Gloves

These two items are a reward from the All Fired Up minigame and they both provide an experience bonus. Ring of fire can be worn with level 62 Firemaking and flame gloves can be worn with level 79 Firemaking. They both provide a 2% experience bonus but when worn together they give a 5% experience bonus.

Orthen Furnace Core

This is an off-hand item that provides benefits to the Firemaking and Smithing skills when equipped. While having this item equipped you gain two passive buffs:

  • If your pyromaniac perk activates, it will give you a 5% experience buff that lasts 5 minutes. If it triggers again while the buff is active it will refresh the timer.
  • While firemaking, there is a random chance to spawn a forge phoenix instead of a fire spirit. If you have the Fairy Fire buff active it will instead spawn as divine forge phoenix.

Pitch Can

Pitch can is an item that fastens your firemaking training. It reduces the time it takes to burn a log or add a log to the bonfire from 6 ticks to 5 ticks. With this you can burn around 200 more logs per hour.

Brooch of the Gods

This is an item that can be equipped in the pocket slot. It has 2 effects. Firstly, it will rarely spawn a divine blessing when clicked on this blessing it will provide four uncommon or rare invention materials. Secondly, it will boost the rewards you get from fire spirits, forge phoenixes, divine fire spirits or divine forge phoenixes by 20%.

Torstol Incense Sticks 

Consuming a stick will provide 0.5% potency, the level will increase every 10 minutes and will cap out at level 4 which in turn provides 2% more experience.

Summoning Familiars

There are 4 different familiars you can summon to help with your Firemaking training:

  • Pyrelord: Requires level 46 summoning, provides an +3 invisible firemaking boost and gives +10 experience when lighting a normal fire with any log. (doesn’t work on bonfires)
  • Forge Regent: Requires level 76 summoning, provides an invisible +4 firemaking boost and gives +10 experience when lighting a normal fire with any log. (doesn’t work on bonfires)
  • Lava Titan: Requires level 83 summoning, provides an invisible +10 firemaking boost.
  • Reborn Phoenix: Requires level 84 summoning, provides an invisible +12 firemaking boost and has 7% chance to burn 2 logs at once when using bonfires. (works with portable braziers and protean logs)

Protean Logs

Protean logs is an item that is mainly earned through treasure hunter. It is a stackable item that can be used to train your firemaking. The experience received from these logs scales with your firemaking level. Training with this item is even more afk than bonfires.

Portable Braziers

Portable braziers is a stackable item that can be deployed anywhere in Runescape. When deployed it lasts for 5 minutes but you can increase this timer by adding more portable braziers to it. Using your logs on this brazier will give an additional 14.4% firemaking experience and it also has a 10% chance at saving a log.

Relic Powers

There are two relics that can be used to enhance your Firemaking Training:

  • Always Adze: When woodcutting, you will always burn your cut logs for immediate Firemaking experience.
  • Inspire Genius: You will gain 2% more experience when training artisan skills.

Levels 90-99 Elder Logs: For levels 90 to 99 you will be burning elder logs on a bonfire. Each log grants 468 experience and you will need 16,427 logs to reach level 99.


If you don’t have money to do every log in the list feel free to use the next best cheapest log that you can afford.

Woodcutting & Firemaking

These two skills can be combined and trained together. To combine these two skills perfectly you will need to complete the quest “The Light Within” and have 91 prayer to use the prayer “Superheat Form”. This prayer instantly burns all the logs that you cut. Alternatively you can use Always Adze to do the same.

Incense Sticks

Crafting incense sticks is a slower way to train your firemaking but it can be profitable. The profit from these can vary so the player must check the grand exchange prices first before committing to a stick. You can check this link to find which sticks are best to craft at any given time:
