See table below for individual beacon requirements.
There are 14 beacons across Misthalin from the River Salve through Varrock, Edgeville, Goblin Village and spreading through the Wilderness as far as the Frozen waste Plateau. The object of the game is to keep as many beacons lit simultaneously as possible. In order to light a beacon you will need 20 logs of the same kind. As with other fires, the beacons can die down. To prevent this from happening you will require 5 more logs of the same kind per beacon. You may however give the 5 logs to the person tending a specific beacon and they will keep the fire lit automatically when it begins to die down.
As you are progressing in lighting the beacons, you might want to know about the status on the beacons you have lit. You can gather information on the status of the neighboring beacons by selecting the "information"-option on each attendant. If you give all of these people a Macaw pouch you will be able to get information on all of the beacons, simply by using the Macaw's "Talk to ..."-option.

it will function as a Rune pickaxe. There is a 25% chance of incinerating logs while
woodcutting, providing both Woodcutting XP and Firemaking XP at the same time.
Hints and Tips:
The beacons can be lit in any order to receive the rewards. Therefore, if you have not fulfilled the requirements for one, you may just proceed to the next beacon.
Setting up each of the beacons before you light them will give you more time to reach each beacon.
You can leave 5 logs with the Person tending the beacon and they will keep the fire lit automatically when it begins to die down.
Those of you have completed the As a As a First Resort... quest, may use the salt water pool to have their run energy constantly reverting to 100% for a certain period of time. If you have not completed this quest you may use a Beast of Burden familiar to carry extra logs, (super) energy potions. You may also use some Beast of Burden's scrolls to replenish your run energy.
