Firemaking is considered to be one of the easiest skills to train in free-to-play given its fast experience rates and low cost. It can be trained in conjunction with Woodcutting by burning the logs cut from trees. With bonfires, training Firemaking is one of the least attention-intensive activities.
Training[edit | edit source]
Equipment[edit | edit source]
The only equipment needed for training Firemaking in free-to-play is a tinderbox to light logs on fire. One is automatically stored in every player's tool belt so it is unnecessary to buy one or keep one in the bank.

General notes[edit | edit source]
- Firemaking should be trained next to a bank for quick withdrawal of logs and thus fast experience.
- World 29 is the official free-to-play Bonfires server, but in practice it is more likely to find bonfires, or better, Portable braziers in the Grand Exchange on World 3 due to its high population.
- Players can add logs to an existing fire to create a bonfire. A log is burnt every 6 game ticks (3.6 seconds) rather than every 4 game ticks (2.4 seconds) when lighting fires the normal way. However, experience per log is increased, and further increased by up to 4% for every other player (up to five) using the same bonfire. With at least 5 players, the experience/hour for bonfires is slightly less than lighting the logs individually, but bonfires are semi-afkable and do not require running to and from banks and are therefore recommended.
Combining Woodcutting and Firemaking training[edit | edit source]
Woodcutting and Firemaking can be trained side by side by cutting logs, then burning them. The most effective free-to-play logs for use with this method are willow logs. A great location to do this is south of Port Sarim. This location is usually almost never crowded because there is no bank nearby, but there is plenty of space to use a bonfire or burn logs individually. Another great spot to perform this tactic is in Lumbridge. On the east side of the River Lum, slightly west of Farming Patch and slight Southeast of the Champions' Guild there are three willow trees. When you stand between the Northernmost willow trees and go all the way East until the fence, you can burn exactly 27 logs individually.
Cutting and burning yew logs would result in slower Woodcutting and Firemaking experience per hour because of reduced Woodcutting speed.
The Daemonheim Peninsula resource dungeon is another popular place in which to train Firemaking in this manner, as it is the only place in the free world where maple trees are found. You can cut and burn maples and willows there, and the only requirement is 30 Dungeoneering. Cutting and burning willows at level 75 Woodcutting yields around 70,000 experience per hour (40,000 for Firemaking), 30,000 for Woodcutting). It's recommended to swap to Maples at level 90 Woodcutting as this yields approximately 90,000 experience per hour (51,400 for Firemaking, 38,600 for Woodcutting).
Level 1-99[edit | edit source]
Level 1-15 - Normal logs[edit | edit source]
- Experience needed - 2,411
- Logs needed - 46
- Time - 3 minutes
- Logs cost = 15,778
Level 15-30 - Oak logs[edit | edit source]
- Experience needed - 10,952
- Oak logs needed - 160
- Time - 8 minutes
- Logs cost = 47,478
Level 30-45 - Willow logs[edit | edit source]
- Experience needed - 48,149
- Willow logs needed - 437
- Time - 27 minutes
- Logs cost = 160,379
Level 45-60 - Maple logs[edit | edit source]
The best way to get from level 45 to level 60 is by burning maple logs on a bonfire to which five or more players are contributing, which grants 140.4 experience per log at level 45 (the experience receiving from burning maple logs is dependent on the player's Firemaking level).
- Experience needed - 212,230
- Maple logs needed - 1,512
- Time - 1 hour 30 minutes
- Logs cost = 199,584
Level 60-75 - Yew logs[edit | edit source]
- Experience needed - 936,679
- Yew logs needed - 3,466
- Time - 4 hours
- Logs cost = 679,336
Level 75-99 - Magic logs[edit | edit source]
- Experience needed - 11,824,010
- Magic logs needed - 36,951
- Time - 37 hours
- Logs cost = 14,300,037
Other methods[edit | edit source]
Level 45-99 - Maple logs[edit | edit source]
Maple logs are the cheapest logs and give decent experience. Burning maple logs on a bonfire to which five or more players are contributing grants an average of 161.2 experience per log (the experience receiving from burning maple logs is dependent on the player's Firemaking level).
- Experience needed - 12,972,919
- Maple logs needed - 80,477
- Time - 80 hours
- Logs cost = 10,622,964
Level 60-99 - Yew logs[edit | edit source]
- Experience needed - 12,760,689
- Yew logs needed - 47,218
- Time - 47 hours
- Logs cost = 9,254,728
This method will take approximately 6 hours longer than using magic logs from 75-99 and will cost 2,855,401 less than using magic logs from 75-99, this works out at an effective saving per hour of 475,900.17.
