What's a good firemaking level to start using the handcannon? I went to TD's earlier today, it pwnt there....till my handcannon exploded.

No, I'm not dumb, I took a second one.

This exploded less then 30 seconds later.

I currently have 71 firemaking. What would be a good level to start using the handcannon so they don't constantly explode?

Most Pk'ers or common users have around an average 90 FM when they use it, since its not wasting a full 13m exp to it to be efficient but enough so it wont blow up all the time.

90 is a good idea because it doesn't really take long to get around that.

99 because it's a very fast & cheap skill, there's no reason not to get 99.

It can't be both fast and cheap. For fast methods you end up having to spend more gp, but to get it cheap you have to burn more logs making it slower.

Also some reasons is because its a boring skill and a waste of time to get to 99 if you don't want too.

Reason: I don't want it. :P

I would suggest a level 90+ firemaking for best results from what I've overheard.

Sorry for forgetting the sarcasm tags. :P

80-99 with Magic logs is 48M and takes under 25 hours, that's both fast and cheap.

When I say there is no reason not to, I mean there is no reason not to get 99 instead of any other level. If you find Firemaking boring then you wouldn't get 90.

Mirrorforced, I said there is no reason for the OP not to as they stated that they want to train Firemaking in order for their hand cannon to explode less often. Whether you want to or not is irrelevant. :P

If you're not too keen on Firemaking, at least get it up to 80-85.

I would say you should shoot for 92 fm. If you are going to get 90 fm to handcannon, you might as well get 92 for the adze. Its a very cheap skill and is incredibly fast. If you use maples, fm ring/gloves, you can reach like 165k exp an hour with maples. Granted, fming is dull, but getting it high has its uses. The adze is a big one for me. Free d-hatchet that burns some of your logs. Perfect for powerchopping.

By all answers, this one is most useful. Firemaking is indeed a fast skill. If you have Firemaking Brawlers, you can always do this for a neat 1.2m experience. I noticed you will play BA, which is a great plan. You can even do some burning / more games / burning and then burn your whole Penance Horn in 1 go once it's full. That will get you pretty close to 85+.
Firemaking 92 is great and not TO hard to get if you want it. If you ever Runecraft with the abyss, the adze is lovely. Doing mining, the adze! Doing woodcutting, the adze!

How in the hell is 48 million cheap!? 25 hours does sound fast for a 99 though.

Sounds like my best bet, I guess. I'll file this one under longt-erm goals however...
