Is there a reason why the Firemaking benefits aren't going to be similar to the Hitpoints base level boost that bonfires offered in RuneScape 2?
Moreover, why not release something akin to the Dwarf handcannon, whereby Firemaking affects its usage? Because we already have the Ballistae, perhaps it could be for a different combat style, or serve even other purposes than combat use.
Perhaps the Firemaking benefits could be similar to what RuneScape 2's Prayer renewal potions offered, or even allow for gradual Hitpoints restoration overtime (possibly restoring 1-5 Hitpoint per 15 seconds, depending on the logs used or Firemaking level, for 5 minutes or something).
I don't know exactly what to suggest, but what's currently being offered does not seem useful in any way - at least not personally, for my play style.

How about you use this opportunity to allow players to create and use Fire arrows (i.e. Rune fire arrows from the Underground Pass quest) more effectively, and provide them a useful benefit over regular arrows. Perhaps the Fire arrows could cause an additional 1-5 immediate damage on any opponent, depending on the user's Firemaking level, and be created through new means (instead of using a Damp cloth and Tinderbox on them) unlocked through this new Troll series quest - likely through a method that trains the Firemaking and/or Fletching skills.
