Black candle detail.png

A black candle is a Firemaking item which is used during Merlin's Crystal. It can be lit with a tinderbox to create a lit black candle. The black candle can be obtained by trading a bucket of wax with the Catherby Candle-maker. The bucket of wax is obtained from one of the beehives west of Catherby by spraying the beehive with insect repellent and using a bucket on it. This item cannot be substituted with a standard white candle for Construction in a player-owned house.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Black candles are considered to be unlucky by the candle maker.
  • After the quest it is possible to buy black candles from the candle maker for 3 coins each, as he claims that the player "started a trend" with the black candles, and has begun selling them, despite being considered unlucky.
