This guide outlines the best methods for training the Smithing skill in free-to-play. There are few ways to make profit with Smithing in F2P, such as making bars or making rune equipment, but it is more beneficial to simply perform the fastest experience methods and use the saved time to make money from alternative methods.

When Smithing, use all bars in your inventory because the experience gained is based off of the tier and number of bars used not item itself. Smithing platebodies is always the fastest experience.
