All Fired Up (sometimes simply called the Beacon Network) is a minigame released on 26 August 2008. The goal of the activity is to light a series of beacons, a concept initiated by King Roald III to make use of fires as a warning signal in the event of an emergency.

In total, there are 14 beacons in the beacon network, with each beacon requiring 20 un-noted logs of your choice to light. To fully complete this minigame, players must have level 92 Firemaking (or 90 with the god banner boost), along with several other requirements and completion of certain quests to be able to access all 14 beacons. If the player is opted into PvP, they will receive a warning prompt about it when attempting to enter the Wilderness from any beacon within or next to the Wilderness.

See the summarised walkthrough for a brief and simple guide for the minigame or the thorough walkthrough for a comprehensive, step-by-step guide suitable for those aiming for the Inferno adze reward.

Requirements[edit | edit source]

Players may partially complete the minigame without fulfilling all requirements, they will still receive the rewards according to the progress they achieved in the minigame. Players looking for alternative methods for training Firemaking should not be intimidated with all of these requirements. See the Network information section below for the individual requirements for each beacon.

Note that players must reach the skill requirements themselves, as player assisting will not allow players to access these beacons. Boosts, however, could be used to light beacons.

Lighting all beacons[edit | edit source]

The following requirements are needed to light all fourteen beacons to gain all three rewards in the minigame. It is also the requirements of My Adze is Bigger Than Yours.

Log storage[edit | edit source]

Player may use log storage boxes to keep logs or exchange noted logs for lighting the beacons faster and smoother. It requires players to complete the Varrock Elite achievements to be usable.

One of the achievements in the group related to the minigame is It All Adze Up, which requires

Recommended[edit | edit source]

Travelling between beacons by simple running takes time. It also has a risk that the beacons run out of fire during the travel, so the players may miss a chance to obtain rewards. Teleportation and items keeping run energy would help players to travel faster to shorten the travel time.

Teleport spells[edit | edit source]

Players may use magic tablets to alleviate the actual requirement of Magic level, however, relevant quests are the sole requirement.

Teleportation items[edit | edit source]

Weight reduction[edit | edit source]

Running[edit | edit source]

Stat recovery[edit | edit source]

There is a beacon in a bad environment near the God Wars Dungeon entrance reducing the players' overall stats.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

To start the minigame, you must have completed the All Fired Up quest; one of the rewards from the quest is access to the beacon network.

The objective of the activity is to keep as many beacons lit at the same time as possible. There are a total of 14 beacons in the beacon network which are indicated on the world map and minimap by the Fired Up Beacon icon (Beacon map icon.png).

On the basis of the number of beacons kept lit at the same time, the rewards are broken into three groups: 6 beacons, 10 beacons, and all 14 beacons. Players can obtain all three rewards in a single trip, provided they have 92 Firemaking. To get the rewards, players will have to speak with King Roald III in Varrock Palace.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Before making an attempt to the activity, the following must be done to eliminate waste of time:

  • All the beacons should be filled with logs (they will not disappear),
    • All log storage boxes may be filled with logs,
  • The necessary repairs must be performed and,
  • The keepers must be aided,
  • All stats must be recovered.

See "Network information" for beacon and keeper requirements.

Lighting the beacons[edit | edit source]

To light a beacon, the brazier must first be filled with 20 unnoted logs of the same type. Any types of logs, which are able to light, may be used. The better the logs, the longer the beacon will stay alight.

An unlit beacon.

It may be useful for players to use maple or yew logs for most beacons if they want to save expenses or effort to gather the required logs, especially if they are using the network to gain experience rather than trying to earn the rewards.

Once a beacon is lit, the player may provide the beacon keepers with an additional 5 logs to watch the beacon on the player's behalf. In addition, a player may add the 5 logs to the weakened beacon themselves to restore a beacon to its full strength. Providing extra logs to the beacon keepers does not give any additional experience, but it does provide some added time to the lit beacons. Meeting the requirements to interact with the beacon keeper also allows players to check on the status of the network at that particular beacon.

Available logs[edit | edit source]

Below is an estimated time for how long each type of log burns:

Log Firemaking level Total burn time Time to dying Price per beacon [b 1]
Regular logs 1 12 minutes 42 seconds 5 minutes 36 seconds 15,300
Achey tree logs 1 13 minutes 6 seconds 6 minutes 31,520
Oak logs 15 13 minutes 45 seconds 6 minutes 39 seconds 14,380
Willow logs 30 14 minutes 6 seconds 7 minutes 3 seconds 13,820
Teak logs 35 14 minutes 27 seconds 7 minutes 24 seconds 4,920
Arctic pine logs 42 14 minutes 48 seconds 7 minutes 45 seconds 10,540
Maple logs 45 15 minutes 30 seconds 8 minutes 27 seconds 4,640
Acadia logs 47 21 seconds N/A 20,760
Mahogany logs 50 15 minutes 57 seconds 8 minutes 54 seconds 21,700
Eucalyptus logs 58 15 minutes 57 seconds 8 minutes 54 seconds 19,300
Yew logs 60 16 minutes 36 seconds 9 minutes 30 seconds 7,480
Magic logs 75 17 minutes 18 seconds 10 minutes 15 seconds 10,640
Elder logs 90 17 minutes 57 seconds 10 minutes 54 seconds 191,660
  1. ^ Calculated using 20 logs per beacon

It is possible to light all 14 beacons using only regular logs; the entire network may be lit in as little as 7–9 minutes.

Storing log in chests[edit | edit source]

There is one box next to each unlit beacon, and each one is capable of holding 60 logs. With 20 logs also stored in the beacon itself, this allows for each beacon to be lit four times before needing replenishment. Addition and removal of logs from the chest can only be done in amounts of 20 logs, which is the amount needed to add to the beacon. Logs can be placed in the chest in noted form, but can only withdrawn in item form. Therefore the players may hold the noted logs to exchange required amount of item form of logs added to the beacon.

The chests only accept the following types of logs. The players can use elder logs in the minigame but not put in the chests.

Name Firemaking level required
Logs 1
Achey tree logs 1
Oak logs 15
Willow logs 30
Teak logs 35
Arctic pine logs 42
Maple logs 45
Acadia logs 47
Mahogany logs 50
Eucalyptus logs 58
Yew logs 60
Magic logs 75

Useful tips[edit | edit source]

Audio options icon.png
The tune that plays when all 14 beacons are lit.

The Inferno adze can be obtained by lighting the beacons in any order, as long as all 14 are lit simultaneously. Players may therefore find it useful to light the higher level beacons first, as these have higher risks, and should players die in the wilderness/outside the God Wars Dungeon while lighting the higher level beacons, less progress would be lost.

Friends may also help in this minigame to save repeated trips to the bank - a player provides an inventory of logs to some friends and asks them to wait at the beacons. Once the player arrives at a beacon, the friend trades the logs with the player for the next beacon.

Players may save money by using cheaper logs on the beacons that will be lit last. The difference in burn times of magic logs and maple logs is relatively minor, but obtaining the first may be either much more expensive (if you are buying logs), or more time-consuming (if you are cutting them).

Using the salt-water spring after completing As a First Resort, or other replacement will give you unlimited run energy for a temporary period of time, increasing your chance of success/save you money from buying energy restoring items.

Players who don't have access to Trollheim teleport can use the games necklace teleport to Troll Invasion and run along to the beacons near the Trollheim hill. However, this takes a relatively long time and it is therefore recommended to light this beacon first, if using this method.

Network status[edit | edit source]

An example of status information regarding the beacon network

To keep track of the status of the beacon network, players can:

  • Talk-to any beacon keeper and select the chat option: "Can you tell me about other beacons?" or
  • Right-click any beacon keeper and select the action: "Information"
    • to display a status update similar to the one shown above. Information is available for any neighbouring beacons on the network, or for one station beyond the last beacon that is lit and currently in operation.
  • Talk-to and select: "Is it possible to get information about beacons that are further away?" (This option appears only before giving a macaw pouch to a keeper)
    • Giving a macaw pouch to a keeper will allow that one keeper to get information about every single beacon in the network permanently, instead of only the two neighbouring them. This is also a requirement for the I Can See For Miles and Miles, a requirement of master quest cape. To give the macaw pouch when one is in your inventory, go through the long "Talk-to" dialogue or just "Use" the macaw pouch on the beacon keeper.

The icons on the map have the following meanings:

Icon Status In-game message Explanation
Unknown Unknown No information is available about this beacon. This beacon is located too far from the beacon station you are at to determine its status.
Extinguished Extinguished The beacon near ... is out. The beacon has consumed all of the logs and needs logs and be lit to become a part of the network.
Loaded Loaded The beacon near ... is loaded with logs. This beacon station currently has logs and is waiting to be lit up.
Beacon Status Lit.png Lit The beacon near ... is blazing brightly. This beacon station is currently in operation and has been lit.
Beacon Status Flameout.png Flame out The beacon near ... is dying out. The flame at this station is about to be extinguished unless more logs are added.

    • Wearing a ring of fire and/or flame gloves grants additional Firemaking experience.
    • 608.4 experience is gained for lighting one beacon at any location.
    • 39,599.9 experience is rewarded for having all 14 beacons lit without either gloves or the ring. The experience is 41,579.5 for completing the beacon network with the fire ring and gloves being worn.
    • If any beacons are still on fire when logs are added to the network, even if the beacon station where you are is extinguished after you had previously lit up the network, no additional bonus will be granted and lighting that beacon will only grant experience for that station alone. This includes adding logs to the network and then shortly afterwards the remaining beacons also become extinguished. To maximise experience earned while lighting the network for training purposes, light all beacons within a short period of time, then wait until all beacons go out before re-loading the network with new logs.
    • In terms of experience gained per log, this is assuming that players only put 20 logs in each station and then complete the entire network up to that point, including all bonuses. While not necessarily a faster method of earning experience, it may be possible to earn more experience per log if using willow or oak logs for the beacon network and be able to reduce the costs both in terms of time and money to gather these logs and use them for training purposes. As a firemaking training method, using maple logs is only effective if you have the firemaking level to nearly complete the entire network, where you would otherwise gain more experience simply burning the maple logs in a conventional manner. Yew and Magic logs should only be used if a player is having difficulty claiming a reward.
    • You can't use logs coloured with Gnomish firelighters to light beacons.
    • When you successfully light 6, 10, or 14 Beacons you will get a message stating you can now pick up your ring of fire, flame gloves, or Inferno adze from King Roald III.

    Items[edit | edit source]

    • King Roald III will also reward players with items according to the number of beacons simultaneously lit.
    Image Item Beacons lit Level Attributes
    Ring of fire Ring of fire 6 beacons 62 2% more experience per log.
    Flame gloves Flame gloves 10 beacons 79 2% more experience per log. When worn at the same time as the Ring of fire, this grants a 5% bonus instead of the expected 4%.
    Inferno adze Inferno adze All 14 beacons 92 See the Inferno adze article.

    Level indicated is minimum Firemaking level required; additional requirements may be needed (see above, or beacon network).

    Experience chart[edit | edit source]

    To show the benefits from the rewards of the minigame while doing normal Firemaking.

    • No bonus is the experience gained from burning the log normally.
    • Ring of fire.png: RS3 Inventory image of Ring of fire / Flame gloves.png: RS3 Inventory image of Flame gloves is the experience gained burning the log with the ring of fire or flame gloves (2% bonus).
    • Ring of fire.png: RS3 Inventory image of Ring of fire + Flame gloves.png: RS3 Inventory image of Flame gloves is the experience gained with both the ring of fire and the flame gloves (i.e. 2% + 2% + 1% = 5% bonus).

    Note: Using Summoning familiars with ring of fire and flame gloves will not stack the Firemaking bonus gained. For example, using Pyrelord with ring of fire and flame gloves will not add 15% Firemaking bonus, instead it will add 5% + 10 exp. However, a Penance horn or Penance master horn will grant you 200% experience bonus over the total experience gained (including the bonus from the flame gloves and/or ring).

    Trivia[edit | edit source]

    • The minigame was quoted to essentially be an evolved version of the unreleased Wilderness Tag minigame.[1]
