The tome of fire is a book held in place of a shield that is a possible reward from a supply crate, which is obtained from subduing the Wintertodt. The tome of fire requires level 50 in Magic to wield.

The tome is only tradeable when empty. When it is empty, its only function is its magic attack and magic defence equipment bonuses.

The tome can be charged with burnt pages, with each page adding 20 charges to the tome, at a cost of 140.45 per charge. It can hold 1,000 pages, costing 2,809,000. Pages can be removed from the tome, but if one or more charges are used from a page, the page will be entirely consumed upon removal.

When the tome has at least one charge, it acts as an infinite source of fire runes while equipped. Using it as a source of fire runes does not consume any charges.

Casting fire spells with a charged tome equipped will increase the spell's damage by 50% (multiplicative with magic damage bonus from equipment) and consume one charge per spell. The bonus applies only to the standard spellbook's fire spells (Fire Strike, Fire Bolt, Fire Blast, Fire Wave and Fire Surge); other spells such as Iban Blast, Flames of Zamorak, Undead Grasp, Demonbane and smoke spells, and any non-combat spells, do not benefit from the bonus and do not consume any charges.

Empty tomes can be traded in for 250 burnt pages per tome (value of 702,250) by speaking to Ignisia.

This item counts as a warm item at the Wintertodt.
