You must have completed All Fired Up to use the Beacon Network.
The kingdoms of Misthalin and Asgarnia, concerned by increasing activity in the Wilderness and the darkening shadows over Morytania, have established an early warning system of beacons along the southern and western boundaries of the Wilderness, and as far east as the Temple of Paterdomus on the River Salve.
Locations of the Beacons
Some of the beacons are difficult to get to, or may have specific requirements (such as repairing a ladder)
Maintaining the Beacons
You can light any of the beacons using 20 logs of the same type, or restoke them by using 5 logs of the same type. In addition to this, you can leave 5 logs with the beacon guards, so they can maintain them for you. For them to do so, however, you may need to help them first. Note that the two northern-most beacons do not have guards (as it's much too dangerous, obviously), so you will have to maintain them yourself.
Higher quality logs will burn for longer, but also require a higher Firemaking level to burn. You will not receive different experience for different logs, but the extra time better logs will burn for will increase your chances of earning the best rewards.
Each beacon awards a set amount of experience, regardless of the logs used. In addition to this, you will receive bonus experience for having several beacons alight at the same time. This is calculated at the time you light a beacon, so if five beacons are burning when you light the sixth, you will receive 2514.6 Firemaking experience, plus the experience for lighting that specific beacon.
Note that some beacons require other skill levels or equipment in order to make use of them.

* Because lighting a single beacon achieves this, you will always receive this bonus experience the first time you light a beacon.
- For keeping 6 beacons alight, you can claim the Ring of fire.
- For keeping 10 beacons alight, you can claim the Flame gloves.
- For having every beacon burning simultaneously, you can claim the Inferno adze.
If you lose or destroy any of these items, you will have to earn it all over again.
