While it does make sense to add this feature, I don't think it's a necessity.

Here's why I see it this way, currently oil lamps aren't the most used light source because you have to constantly fill them with oil, and there exist a multitudes of light sources whom doesn't required this while still providing all the benefits of the oil lamp. (Namely ; the sapphire/emerald lantern, the burma torch, the firemaking cape, etc.)

This being said, I'm not 100% against the idea itself, but I would only support it should more tool require oil than few light-sources.


You have zero clue what you're talking about.

You don't have to "constantly refill them with oil." You only need to do so once. Secondly, a bullseye lantern (and subsequently the sapphire/emerald lanterns) all require lamp oil as well.

Already debunked. Bruma torch is essentially a skilling boss drop. Firemaking cape is endgame content. Bullseye, sapphire, and emerald lanterns all actually require lamp oil.

You don't have to refill them.

And, as I just said, lamps are not the only things lamp oil is used for, so answering why someone just doesn't use an alternative light source still doesn't address the other utilities this update would provide.
