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.

Use[edit | edit source]

Once a player has obtained the normal pyre logs they may use them, along with a set of shade remains (Loar/Phrin), upon one of the numerous funeral pyres located to the south-west of Mort'ton's centre. If the player has a tinderbox in their inventory they may then light the pyre and, by doing so, release the spirit of the shade.

The player will see an animation of the shade's spirit floating up, away from the pyre, and then either a key or a stack of coins will appear on the pedestal nearby. The type and level of the key is dependent on which shade remains the player has burnt, with higher level shades leaving higher level keys. Players may then collect the reward and continue with the minigame.
