Oil lantern (empty) detail

An empty oil lantern is a light source used for exploring dark caves. It is made with level 26 crafting by using an oil lamp (empty) with an iron oil lantern frame (requires 26 smithing), giving 50 Crafting experience. The empty lantern can then be filled with lamp oil at the Chemist's west of Rimmington to produce an oil lantern (oil). With level 26 Firemaking you can click on the oil lantern (oil) to light it and make a lit oil lantern. It will eventually go out, and will require more lamp oil. Although it does make dark places lighter, they are still darker than the outside world. If you wish, you can carry another light source along with your lantern or use the bat familiar to brighten dark areas even further.
