A broken lamp in Dorgesh-Kaan.
A map of all possible broken lamp locations that require a new Light orb to grant Firemaking experience.

Light orbs can be used to fix magical lamps in Dorgesh-Kaan. Level 52 Firemaking is needed to fix a lamp, giving 1,000 Firemaking experience. When a player has replaced 100 light orbs they will receive the message "You have replaced 100 orbs and have gained extra experience." The bonus received is 5,000 Firemaking experience. Broken lamps are mostly found on the second and third floors. The large street lamps throughout Dorgesh-Kaan never need replacing. Because of this it is rare to encounter a broken lamp. However, if repairing lamps is combined with Thieving training on Dorgesh-Kaan average and rich chests it is possible to encounter up to seven broken lamps on a single complete circuit if one visits every room, including those without chests. It is important to note that world-hopping will not help the player find a broken lamp faster as their state of repair is not unique to each world; fixing a lamp in one world will fix that particular lamp in all others.

In addition to attaching cave goblin wire to empty light orbs via the Crafting skill (requires 87 Crafting, granting 104 experience), complete light orbs are sometimes obtained from Dorgesh-Kaan Average Chests, specifically from the chest on the 2nd floor in Oldak's house. Empty orbs are obtained by looting a chest only slightly more frequently than completed light orbs. However, given the player has sufficient levels in Crafting and Thieving, training Thieving and Firemaking together in Dorgesh-Kaan is reasonably efficient.

A Light orb is needed for a Sherlock elite clue scroll step, and one must be crafted for a master clue scroll.

Despite the large amount of Firemaking experience given, finding the broken lamps can be time-consuming. It may be useful to make fires in the city and take quick glances at nearby lamps in hope of a broken lamp being found, though don't go asking people if they have seen any because they are different for each person.
