A Furnace is an interactive scenery object used in Smithing and Crafting. It is used to smelt various ores into metal bars.

A furnace is also needed for some Crafting purposes. With the appropriate mould in their inventory and the required Crafting level, players can use the furnace to craft gold bars into jewellery (e.g. rings, necklaces, bracelets, amulets) with or without gems. Players can also craft silver bars into jewellery (e.g. rings, necklaces, bracelets, amulets, holy symbols, tiaras, unholy symbols, lightning rods), assuming they have the appropriate mould in their inventory and the required Crafting level. Players may also make molten glass by smelting soda ash and a bucket of sand.

Players with level 43 Magic may choose to use Superheat Item instead of furnaces for smelting, earning both Magic and Smithing experience, although this will prove costly as it requires 1 nature rune and 4 fire runes per bar. Superheat Item does not work for jewellery or melting glass.

The closest furnace to a bank is located in Prifddinas (requiring Song of the Elves), closely followed by the furnace in Edgeville. If you are a new player with limited teleport options and need to make use of a furnace just once, you can teleport to Lumbridge and use the furnace slightly north of the teleport area.

There are several furnaces around Gielenor which are identified with a furnace Furnace icon.png icon on the world map and minimap.

Locations[edit | edit source]

Furnace location # of squares to bank Notes Trailblazer Region
Edgeville 14 The third closest furnace to a bank in members worlds, and the first closest in free-to-play. Members who wear Varrock armour have a chance of smelting 2 bars at once at this furnace, with experience still being granted. Misthalin Misthalin
Al-Kharid 30 This furnace is located directly north of the bank. It was the recommended furnace to use for free-to-play players until the introduction of the Edgeville furnace in free worlds. Desert Desert
Falador West bank: 39
East bank: 54
This furnace is located south of the centre. It is closer to the west bank than the east one. Asgarnia Asgarnia
Lumbridge 2nd floor[UK]3rd floor[US]: 85
Culinaromancer's Chest (m): 93
This furnace is located north of Lumbridge Castle. The next closest bank is in Lumbridge Castle. Misthalin Misthalin
Wilderness, Level 28 Ferox Enclave bank: 116 Located in the Wilderness at level 28, and is only useful for the nearby mines. Wilderness Wilderness
Members-only locations
Prifddinas 11 The closest, free furnace, but requires completion of Song of the Elves (currently the closest furnace to an anvil). Tirannwn Tirannwn
Shilo Village 11 The Shilo Village quest is required to enter the village. Technically the closest to a bank but players must pay 20 coins to use it, unless they possess the Karamja gloves 4, but players do not have to pay every time as they can deposit coins with the nearby NPC. Karamja Karamja
Neitiznot 15 Although this is the 4th closest furnace to a bank, it has the added advantage of being positioned where you don't have to move your camera when smelting or banking. This makes it very good for OSRS Mobile users. Experience rates are on par with Edgeville furnace when not using Varrock Armour. Fremennik Fremennik
Mount Karuulm 15 Tied with Neitiznot in terms of distance. Close to the Slayer master Konar quo Maten and can be quickly accessed using the teleport option on Rada's blessing 3 or by fairy ring (code CIR) and traveling up the volcano. None
Dorgesh-Kaan 99 to Dorgesh-Kaan bank. Can only be used to smelt jewellery and glass. Misthalin Misthalin
Port Phasmatys 17 The fifth closest furnace to a bank in RuneScape, equipping a ghostspeak amulet or Morytania legs 2 or higher, speeds up banking but is not required. Morytania Morytania
Elemental workshop 52 (seers village bank) Can only be used to smelt Elemental ore's. Battered key is required to enter. Kandarin Kandarin
Piscatoris 22 Quite close to a bank. Swan Song is required. Kandarin Kandarin
Mor Ul Rek 25 The furnaces here are Lava forges that are found in both the inner and outer areas. Karamja Karamja
Burgh de Rott 31 This furnace is not a good place to smelt as it is quite a run from the bank, and there are no significant mining areas nearby. Morytania Morytania
Lovakengj 37 This furnace is directly in between the Lovakengj bank and the Lovakengj mine. None
Zanaris 52 The Lost City quest has to be completed to enter this fairy city. A bank is not very close. Misthalin Misthalin
East Ardougne North bank: 41
East bank: 64
There is no practical use to ever use this furnace, since both banks are quite far away. Kandarin Kandarin
Keldagrim Bank chest located in area:18 to conveyor belt, 8 to bar dispenser The Giant Dwarf quest is needed to have been started or completed to enter the city. The furnace is actually Blast Furnace minigame. 2500 coins are needed to use it (if you are not 60 smithing). The upside is it uses half as much coal to make high level metal bars. Fremennik Fremennik
Wilderness Resource Area Edgeville bank:93 mage arena:109 (see notes for more) Notable for being very close to minable rocks as well as an anvil. The closest bank is the Edgeville one. Could also bank in Ardougne or Mage Arena using the Wilderness lever. However, Piles in the area can turn items to banknotes for a fee, possibly replacing the need for a deposit service. Wilderness Wilderness
Darkmeyer 140 from Darkmeyer bank Not very close to bank. Requires Sins of the Father to access and Vyre noble clothing to use safely. Morytania Morytania
Forsaken Tower Lovakengj lovakite bank:177, mount karuulm using shortcuts: 189 lvl 29 agil: 254, no shortcuts: 273 This furnace is not a good place to smelt as it is quite a run from the bank, and there are no significant mining areas nearby. None
Entrana Draynor village bank using shortcut: 95 no shortcut:129 This furnace is mainly used in Crafting to make glass as all the materials are on the island. Bank is very far away. Asgarnia Asgarnia
Rellekka 95 Lunar isle (varies due captain movement but shortest 95) Usable after completing the quest The Fremennik Trials. A bank is a long walk away, and prior to the release of Song of the Elves was the closest furnace to an anvil. Fremennik Fremennik
Enakhra's Temple 241 to Nardah bank Very far from a bank. Very rarely used for smelting gold from the nearby gold mine south-west of Nardah. Requires completion of Enakhra's Lament. Desert Desert
Tyras Camp 80 if chartering to Port Khazard. Costs 3200 Distance varies by couple squares. A really long walk away from a bank. This furnace is the farthest from a bank, and as such, is almost never used. The cost to travel to port khazard via charter ship is 1600 if cabin fever is done or you have ring of charos(a), and price is reduced to 800 if both are used. Tirannwn Tirannwn
Underground Pass 635 with shortcut in underground pass, 657 with no shortcut in underground pass. Banking at south-east Prifddinas bank. This furnace is used in the quest to destroy the orbs of light. It is impractical for training but is a functioning furnace. Tirannwn Tirannwn
