Old School RuneScape has an exceptionally small number of firemaking methods, but subduing the Wintertodt is, without question, the best way to go about it.
Runescape continuing its lifespan to now, more than twenty years since its release, is a point that few (including its creators) thought it would get to. In divergence to what the game has become, Old School Runescape (OSRS) is maintained and updated alongside the modern version and frequently receives just as much, if not more, love from its player base.
OSRS provides a unique feeling of nostalgia that only a medieval clicking simulator can deliver.
However, in a game designed to never be completed, there have been some major changes to skills throughout the years. And if the sound of lighting tens of thousands of logs doesn’t appeal to you, we’ve got you covered with the most efficient way to max your Firemaking.
Utilizing all facets of the Wintertodt boss fight is a great way of maximizing your points gained for rewards by completing the boss solo.
When in a group it is less essential to have all of these aspects, but if you’re looking for free and easy ways to gain XP in Herblore or Construction these are the requirements for Wintertodt’s full usage:
You’ll need a Tinderbox, and Axe at minimum when heading through the Doors of Dinh. Bringing Food to the Wintertodt is also essential, as you will take constant damage from the frosty fiend the entire time you’re within the boss arena.
It’s also recommended to bring a Hammer if you’re seeking to repair the broken braziers for Construction XP. If you’re looking to get some sneaky Fletching XP you’ll also need to bring a Knife to fashion logs into kindling.
Before you start the early-game OSRS pilgrimage to the Wintertodt, you need to decide if you’ll be doing it solo or in a group. If looking for the easiest way to learn, the official world for Wintertodt is World 309, and is always full of players.
There are three main methods to quickly reach the Wintertodt.

This is a brilliant chance for OSRS players to level up an otherwise frustrating skill and gather resources in a multitude of skills at the same time.
