The firemaking skill represents your ability to light fires using a steel and flint and kindling. It is used to light campfires, ovens, forges, and other burning vessels. It is also used to create torches.
- To create a campfire, equip a steel and flint in your inventory by double-clicking it. Right-click on a kindling in your inventory and select Create > Containers > Campfire. The higher the quality of the kindling, the higher the quality level of the resulting fire. Higher quality fires burn hotter and thus cook food and melt ore faster.
- To light a spent campfire or an unlit forge or oven, equip a steel and flint as above then right-click the campfire, oven, or forge and select Light. You must have at least 1 kindling in your inventory to perform the action.
- A higher firemaking skill results in a greater chance of success in lighting fires. This skill also helps determine the quality level of the ash generated from resulting campfires.
- Lighting a fire can be done while moving, so long as you do not move too far away (two tiles) from the tile you are currently working on.
