OSRS Firemaking Guide

Firemaking

 

Firemaking is one of the most useless skills in Runescape. Leveling it up tho is rather easy. With firemaking as the name suggests you have to create fires. On these fires you can cook Fish, Meat,.. This allows you to cook from almost any location in runescape.

Fire

If you want to make a fire, you need a log & a tinderbox.
You can chop wood with the woodcutting skill or simply buy logs from the Grand exchange.
Tinderboxes are found in the general store for 1gp.

Use your tinderbox on the log & you'll see your character making the fire. If you're a low level it might take a few seconds for the fire to be made. When you're a higher level you can create them really fast.

Pyre ships

The barbarians loved a good adventure. Very often they go to the Ancient Cave, its a cave underneath the river of the Batorian Falls. Sometimes they never return & their souls floats in the cave, refusing them to rest in peace. You can burn their bones on a special ship & kill the spirit that gets released, this way they'll be able to rest in peace. The spirit has a combat level of 166 & is able to drop a Dragon full helm.

You can receive the bones by killing barbarians in the ancient cave. To get there you must of have completed the Barbarian training. Soometimes they drop "mangled bones" & "chewes bones".  Don't use the chewed bones, You won't receive anything.
