Candle lantern detail.png

The white candle lantern is a type of members-only light source used in the Firemaking skill. It can be obtained as a drop from a cave bug, through Crafting, or through trading. Candle lanterns can also be obtained by looting an eclectic impling that has been caught. They cannot be traded whilst lit.

To make a white candle lantern the player must first have an unlit white candle, an empty candle lantern frame (made with the Crafting skill), and at least level 4 Firemaking. The player places the white candle in the lantern frame and lights it, using a tinderbox to produce a candle lantern (lit white). No experience is received when lighting a candle lantern.

The empty candle lantern can instead be filled with a black candle to give a candle lantern (black), then lit to produce a candle lantern (lit black).

Candle lanterns are highly unused and not recommended for the Lumbridge Swamp Caves, as they have a high chance of igniting the swamp gas, which will cause an explosion and hit the player for up to 200 life points. The preferred alternative is a bullseye lantern, although if that is not available then an oil lantern will suffice.
