Smithing is a production skill through which players create a wide variety of metal items from ore and metal bars. It is the companion skill of Mining, which generates raw materials used in Smithing. Ores acquired from Mining are smelted into metal bars at furnaces, and then hammered into items at anvils. Many smithable items are useful in combat, quests, and the training of a number of other skills such as Crafting and Fletching.

Smelting[edit | edit source]

A player smelting some ore.
For a list of furnaces, see Furnace.

Smelting is the process of extracting a metal bar from a metal ore. To obtain a metal bar, a player must use an ore of the desired metal with a furnace. Some metals require multiple ores, and some require coal to be added to the furnace to raise the furnace's temperature.

Metal bars can be smelted by either using ores directly on a furnace or by clicking on the furnace, right-clicking on the desired bar to smelt, and selecting the number of bars to smelt.

Members can also smelt bars at the Blast Furnace, which can be a quicker and more cost-effective alternative to usual smelting at a furnace.

Smelting using Magic[edit | edit source]

With level 43 Magic, players can smelt bars using the Superheat Item spell. Doing so grants the same amount of Smithing experience as smelting using a furnace, and has a few advantages:

  • The player can emerge from a mine with a full inventory of bars, instead of a full inventory of ores which will smelt into only a fraction of the bars.
  • The player receives both Smithing and Magic experience.
  • The player saves time by not having to commute between a bank and a furnace.
  • The player is granted a 100% success rate in smelting iron ore.
  • The player can smelt Lovakite bars without the need to use the special Lovakite furnace.

Success rate[edit | edit source]

All metals have a 100% success rate with the exception of iron ore, which has a 50% chance of success, regardless of level; however, wearing a ring of forging, using the Superheat Item spell, or using the Blast Furnace provides a 100% success rate for smithing iron bars. A failed smelting attempt results in the loss of the iron ore.

  2. 2.0 2.1 This is based on using the Ring of forging for smelting, guaranteeing successful smelting of iron.
  3. Wearing Goldsmith gauntlets increases the experience gained from smelting gold bars.

Smithing[edit | edit source]

For a list of anvils, see Anvil.

Smithing is the process by which players craft a metal item out of one or more metal bars. Smithing is always done at an anvil. When a player clicks on an anvil or uses a metal bar with one, an overlay is shown in which the player selects which item to forge. The player can either click the item to smith one such item, or right-click on the item and select a higher quantity of items to smith. Smithing takes place at a time interval of 5 ticks (roughly 3 seconds) per item created, regardless of the items being created or how many bars are being used per item.

Note: Once a player has selected a quantity of items to smith, the player's character will only cease smithing once the quantity is filled, the player has run out of bars, the player levels up, or the player is attacked.

Smithing tables[edit | edit source]

Different Smithing levels are required to make different items. Below is a table with information about Smithing and what players can create. It is important to note that black armour and weapons cannot be smithed.

Smithing experience is calculated by taking the experience granted from 1 bar and multiplying it by the number of bars used. For example, a bronze platebody is 62.5 experience using 5 bars. 1 bar is 12.5 exp, so go 5 * 12.5 = 62.5. This works for all bars and all smithing items, with a few exceptions such as cannonballs.

Smelting and Smithing tips[edit | edit source]

Making money[edit | edit source]

For making money by smelting ore into bars, see Calculator:Smithing/Smelting.
For making money by smithing bars into items, see Calculator:Smithing/Bars.

Smithing offers several opportunities to make money. Players have the option to cast High Level Alchemy on the items they made with smithing, sell them to specialty general stores, or sell them on the Grand Exchange. Furthermore, members have the ability to smelt metal bars at the Blast Furnace for lowered ore costs and therefore greater profits.

Smithing in conjunction with casting High Level Alchemy is responsible for bringing significant amount of coins into the game. At a Magic level of 55, a player can “high alch” items using 5 fire runes and 1 nature rune to turn items into coins. Several items made by Smithing can be profitable when High Alchemy is cast on them. Some high alchemy values are found in the table below.

Specialty stores are general stores that purchase items from the player for more coins than most general stores. The Jiminua's Jungle Store north of Tai Bwo Wannai village on Karamja with the Karamja gloves 3/4 purchases items at above the high alchemy value.

Other stores include: the general store run by Martin Thwait in the Rogue's Den (Martin Thwait's Lost and Found), the West Ardougne General Store, and the Bandit Duty Free in the Bandit Camp in the Wilderness (although this one is NOT recommended due to its dangerous location). Keep in mind that the buy price at general stores decreases rapidly the more items it has in stock, so it's recommended to hop around frequently if you decide to sell your items.

Other ways for making money include at level 40 Smithing with level 6 Crafting and a necklace mould, gold necklace can be made at the same furnace in which gold ore is smelted into gold bars. Grum's Gold Exchange in Port Sarim buys a gold necklace for 315 coins if his stock is zero; the price decreases 9 coins for each gold necklace in stock, dropping to 45 coins at a stock of 30 or more

High Level Alchemy table[edit | edit source]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • In the early days, Smithing was considered one of the best skills for making money. As such, Jagex deliberately kept anvils and furnaces far away from each other in an attempt to prevent people from levelling Smithing too quickly.
  • For a time after the release of RuneScape 2 through around 2006, the in-game skill guide for Smithing had a tab for smithing black equipment, although this is not possible.
  • Smithing is one of only two skills that unlocks something new at every level with the other skill being Construction.
