General Edit

Smelting Edit

Players can smelt ores into bars at a furnace for Smithing experience. Alternatively, players can superheat which allows players to smelt at a bank or at a mine for the cost of 1 nature rune and 4 fire runes.  Players only have a 50% chance of smelting iron ore at a furnace unless they use a ring of forging or use the superheat spell.  

SmithingEdit

Players can choose to smith bars into armour and other metal items at an anvil. Usually the best things to smith are iron knives, dart tips and platebodies, depending on whether the player wants fast experience or profit.

Blast FurnaceEdit

Players can play the minigame Blast Furnace to smelt ores using half the required amount of coal. There are friends chats that provide free services for Blast Furnace, making it wildly popular as a method for training and a method of money making.  

Quests RewardsEdit

Total: 49,482 Experience

Fastest experienceEdit

Levels 1-29 – Questing Edit

The Knight's Sword is a free-to-play quest that gives 12,725 Smithing experience upon completion. This reward would elevate a level 1 Smithing to level 29 immediately. It is strongly recommended that people interested in Smithing do this quest as soon as possible.

Levels 1-24 – Bronze itemsEdit

If completing The Knight's Sword isn't an option, smith the highest-level bronze item you're able to.

Levels 24-40 – Iron itemsEdit

Smith the highest-level iron item you're able to.

Levels 40-99 – Gold bars (Blast Furnace) Edit

Smelting gold bars in the Blast Furnace is the fastest, although a costly way to train Smithing. This requires having access to goldsmith gauntlets (requires completion of Family Crest), which increase the base experience of 22.5 to 56.2 experience per bar. Players can expect up to 300,000 experience per hour with this method if using one of the official Blast Furnace worlds, which have dwarven workers operating the Blast Furnace.

231,268 gold ores are required to achieve 99 Smithing if using the goldsmith gauntlets. Gold ores are worth 314 and gold bars are worth 67, which means that, when using Goldsmith gauntlets for 56.2 experience per bar, this can be done for -4.4 gp per experience.

Alternative methods Edit

Level 19-34 – Iron nails Edit

At level 19 members can make 15 iron nails from an iron bar. It is possible to make 900 iron bars into 13,500 iron nails per hour at a leisurely pace. This method provides ~25k experience/hr, which is more than double the experience from smelting iron bars.

Levels 34-99 Dart tips Edit

Dart tips are often in high demand due to their use of powertraining Fletching, thus smithing them usually makes profit or breaks even. Always check the prices before attempting to do this. Making any type of dart tips requires completion of The Tourist Trap quest.

At level 34, you can start smithing steel dart tips, which yields 1.89 coins per experience with the current prices. This method grants 37.5 experience per steel bar, resulting an experience rate of roughly 37,000 experience per hour. Doing this method from level 34 to 54 would require 3,905 steel bars.

At level 54, you can start smithing mithril dart tips, which yields 3.22 coins per experience with the current prices. This method grants 50 experience per mithril bar, resulting an experience rate of roughly 49,000 experience per hour. Doing this method from level 54 to 99 would require 257,672 mithril bars.

At level 74, you can start making adamant dart tips, which yields 1.18 coins per experience with the current prices. This method grants 62.5 experience per adamantite bar, resulting an experience rate of roughly 62,000 experience per hour. Sometimes making adamant dart tips will result in a small loss, so the player may wish to continue with mithril dart tips instead. Doing this method from level 74 to 99 would require 191,011 adamantite bars.

Levels 35-99 – Cannonballs Edit

Smelting cannonballs from steel bars is extremely profitable however very slow experience. To smelt cannonballs, players must complete the Dwarf Cannon quest. Each steel bar, costing 519, gives 25.6 experience and 4 cannonballs, worth 780, resulting in a profit of 10.2 coins per experience. 507,704 steel bars are required to achieve 99 Smithing. (~14k xp/hr at a rate of about 540 bars per hour).
