Pyre logs may be used during the Shades of Mort'ton minigame to cremate the remains of both Loar and Phrin shades. They require level 5 Firemaking to light and grant 50 Firemaking experience when used to cremate a shade.

Preparation[edit | edit source]

To make pyre logs, players must first obtain some sacred oil. Sacred oil may be purchased from other players or made during the Shades of Mort'ton minigame or the Shades of Mort'ton quest. To create the oil, players need to purchase normal olive oil from Razmire Keelgan's store in Mort'ton and then help to restore the temple that lies to the north of the town. Once the temple is rebuilt, players may light the altar in the centre of the temple and use their olive oil on the fire. This converts the ordinary olive oil into sacred oil, which can then be used on logs. Different types of logs use a different number of doses of sacred oil to turn them into pyre logs.

The amount of experience shown in the table below is the experience that is rewarded for using the required amount of oil on a log. However, the actual experience per log is calculated based on the amount of oil in the vial that is being used. For example, using sacred oil(4) on an oak log will result in two doses of oil being used up, and 16 experience being rewarded. Using the remaining two doses of oil will then reward 10 more experience, since a vial containing 2 doses is being used. Because of this, when using full vials of oil, one can expect higher average amounts of experience per log than shown in this table.

Note that each of these interactions use up the same amount of sacred oil, but reward different amounts of experience.

Use[edit | edit source]

Players may use the pyre logs, along with a set of shade remains (Loar or Phrin), on one of the numerous funeral pyres located to the south-west of Mort'ton's centre. The pyre can then be lit using a tinderbox, which releases the shade and rewards Firemaking and Prayer experience, as well as some coins or a key. The type of key rewarded solely depends on the type of remains that are cremated, and do not depend on the logs used.
