Burning logs[edit | edit source]

The fastest Firemaking experience is gained by burning the highest-tier log available. The best place to do this tick-perfectly is at the eastern part of the Grand Exchange, as the bank is only one tile away from an area a log can be burned and the area has a lot of empty space. When correctly timed, the player can move to another square in between lighting the logs, which allows the player to burn the logs in any formation. The player should have noted logs in the inventory, and use them on a banker while standing 2 steps away when banking for more logs.

An easier but a slower method is to simply burn logs in a row from east to west. The best place to do this is at Varrock: use Varrock Teleport, light the logs from the fountain and bank at the Varrock west bank.

The below table assumes 1485 logs are burned per hour.

Wintertodt[edit | edit source]


Subduing Wintertodt from level 50 Firemaking onwards is a slower, but profitable and low-effort alternative to burning logs. It also grants passive Woodcutting experience from chopping the bruma roots, and the Pyromancer outfit, which increases Firemaking experience by 2.5%. The fastest way to gain Firemaking experience from Wintertodt is to be on an official world (307, 309, 311), which have fast games that usually last around 4 minutes. Light a brazier as soon as the round starts, chop bruma roots until you have a full inventory and burn them in the brazier. Fix and relight the brazier if needed. Fletching the bruma roots into kindlings is only recommended when the player would not meet the 500-point mark for the extra experience gained at the end of the round. Otherwise, bruma roots should not be fletched into kindlings as this significantly hampers experience rates.

Having the ornate rejuvenation pool and the basic jewellery box in the player-owned house is strongly recommended, as players can teleport to their house after every round, use the pool to heal themselves and quickly teleport back. Alternatively, players can teleport to Clan Wars via a ring of dueling and restore their stats using the free-for-all portal, or teleport to the Elidinis Statuette in Nardah with a Desert Amulet (4). It is also very helpful to have the Hitpoints cape along with a regen bracelet to mitigate the damage dealt by the cold; with all these and using the Redemption prayer, at high Firemaking levels it is very likely that the players will not need any food to heal themselves.

Players can gain extra experience in between rounds by doing other activities during the downtime, such as burning logs, fletching darts or making jugs of wine.

Experience rates scale depending on the player's level. It takes around 600 rounds and 40 hours (assuming an average kill length of 4 minutes and a 60 second pause) to get from level 50 to level 99 Firemaking.
