Oil lantern (oil) detail

An unlit oil lantern is a light source used for exploring dark caves. It is created by filling lamp oil into an oil lantern (empty), and can be lit to create a lit oil lantern. It can also be made by combining an oil lantern frame with an oil lamp (oil). It is made with level 26 crafting by using an oil lamp (empty) with an iron oil lantern frame at 26 smithing to create a oil lantern (empty), then filling the empty lantern with lamp oil at the Chemist's west of Rimmington, requiring swamp tar. 26 Firemaking is required to light it. 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.
