A Gnomish firelighter is a stackable members-only reward from Treasure Trails and fire spirits.
When used on regular logs, they will first turn into the colour of the gnomish firelighter used, then disappear. When the coloured logs are used with a tinderbox, the flame will either be blue, red, purple, white, or green, depending on the colour of the firelighter used.
When burning the logs, the Firemaking experience gained is increased by 10 points, for a total of 50. However, the firelighters do not affect the burn time or Cooking rates of the fire, so firelighters have little use apart from the slight experience boost and decoration. Using a coloured log on a burning log of any type changes its flames to the colour of the log used.
All firelighters can also be struck, consuming the firelighter and granting a 5-minute buff that causes all fire spirits, divine fire spirits and forge phoenixes to be automatically collected into backpack and increasing fire spirit rewards by 30%. This buff can be stacked up to 60 minutes by striking multiple firelighters and does not count down while logged off. The message: The fire spirit would hop in your backpack, but it's full! will be received if the players' inventory is full.
