Smithing

Introduction

Smithing is the production skill of mining; it allows you to turn ore into bars and eventually into your own armour and weapons! It is available to free players but, as with any other free-to-play skill, has extra benefits when you become a member. As you gain a higher smithing level, you are able to make stronger armour and weapons. You can also make a decent amount of money with higher-level smithing! This guide will describe in detail all of the different methods, including an in-depth guide of the best ways to train your smithing level depending on whether you want fast or cheap experience. So, without further ado, RuneZone presents the Smithing guide!

Basics

To start smithing, you will need the metal ore that you can obtain through the mining skill. Alternative ways to obtain ores is to buy them from other players or via the Grand Exchange. Keep in mind however that this can become very expensive. There are two parts to smithing: the first part is turning the ores into metal bars, and the second part is turning the bars into armour and weapons.

Smelting Bars

The first step in making your own weapons or armour is to smelt your own bars! To do this, simply go to a furnace with ores in your inventory; furnaces are located all over RuneScape, but the best ones are listed here.

Notice in the above picture that certain bars have black text beneath them while others are red. If they are black, that means that you have the required level to smith that bar; otherwise, if it is red, you will not be able to make it until you get the required level!

You are also able to use your magic level to superheat the ores by using the "Superheat Item" spell, which requires 43 magic. To cast this spell, you need four fire runes and one nature rune. In the following table, you can see what the different bars are that you can smelt and what levels they require.

Smithing Tables

The next and final step is to use a hammer and an anvil to smith the bars into your own weapons and armour! Simply use the bar with an anvil (for a list of efficient anvils to use, click here) and a pop-up box will appear as illustrated below. All you have to do is left-click on the item you wish to create, or right-click on it and specify the quantity of the item to be made! Keep in mind that you will always need a hammer and a sufficient amount of bars in your inventory to smith anything!

Extra Features

Blast Furnace:

Although an unpopular activity, this is actually an efficient way to train your smithing level while having fun at the same time! The whole thing is a team effort too, so don't worry if you mess up because there will be other people to back you up! As long as you are on the official world for it, that is - world 58; otherwise you will probably have difficulty assembling a team. The Blast Furnace is located in southeast Keldagrim, housed in a building just north of the mine carts. It is definitely worth paying a visit here to see if you like it; as it is an activity, it is definitely a less "grindy" method to train your smithing level!

Artisans Workshop:

The Artisans Workshop is a smithing workshop located in South-East Falador. It provides an extremely AFK-able way and possibly a very fast way to train Smithing. It caters for both Members and Non-Members. Due to how many ores the process consumes, this method is not recommended unless you are considerably wealthy. The ores can be better used, from an economical aspect, on other Smithing methods, like gold bar smelting. The chart below displays the most popular bars used in Artisans Workshop, with calculations of the total time spent to achieve 99 and the amount of bars needed.

Elemental Smithing:

As you complete quests in the Elemental Workshop series (I, II, III and IV) you will gain the ability to smith elemental metal, with higher tiers of elemental metal and equipment becoming available to you as you progress further into the quest series. The methods behind creating elemental metal differ slightly than regular Smithing, which will be learned as you progress through each quest.

Elemental equipment possesses some decent defence stats, in particular against magic, but can be utilised by each corner of the combat triangle as it doesn't provide any hindrances to any form of attack.

Obsidian Smithing:

Once you have completed the quest The Brink of Extinction you will be able to venture into the TokHaar Fight Cauldron, which will pit you in a "survival" mode against endless waves of TokHaar monsters. These TokHaar can drop obsidian shards, which are needed to create obsidian bars (12 shards to create 1 bar), which hence are used to create obsidian items.

Obsidian armour is classified as a hybrid armour set, making it applicable to all combat styles, but against the TzHaar and TokHaar is where it really excels. The armour set can provide up to a 55% damage reduction against creatures in the TzHaar city, but with each hit taken, there is a possibility that the armour will lose charges and degrade completely once it runs out of them(4000 charges for each piece of equipment). In addition, obsidian equipment is untradeable and requires 60 Defence to wear. This armour can also be used in the Fight caves and the Fight Kiln, and is one of the best armours to use to complete these activities.

They require the seed and a certain amount of Harmonic dust which can be harvested by playing harps in the building in the western section of the Ithell area or by pickpocketing Ithell workers (requires 92 Thieving). You can charge your crystal teleport seeds for 150 harmonic dust and gain 150 Smithing experience.

Crystal equipment are level 70 while the Attuned crystal equipment are level 80. Seeds can be obtained by pickpocketing Ithell workers, killing Elf warriors, rangers and mages in Prifddinas, lotted from crystal implings or bought from other players or the Grand Exchange (Attuned seeds are not tradeable hence cannot be bought from other players or the Grand Exchange).

Corrupted Ore

Once the player has gained access to Prifddinas, they will gain access to Seren stones. If they have the correct mining level, they are able to mine these for some decent mining experience. However they will also receive Corrupted ore. This stackable ore can be smelted in a furnace at 89 Smithing, doing so will reward the player with 150 Smithing experience. The player is able to smelt a consecutive 60 ores before they will have to click the furnace again. This training method can provide the player with high amounts of cheap Smithing experience, provided that they already possess the ores.

Helpful Smithing Items:

There are several items associated with the Smithing skill that can assist you with your training by providing certain effects, such as "boosting" your Smithing level temporarily or unlocking abilities that can assist your training, which are listed in the table below.

Item Effects

Varrock Armor (1-4)
Varrock Armor 1 (Gives a 5% chance to smelt 2 ores at once at the Edgeville furnace, up to and including steel bars).
Varrock Armor 2 (Gives a 5% chance to smelt 2 ores at once at the Edgeville furnace, up to and including mithril bars).
Varrock Armor 3 and 4 (Gives a 5% chance to smelt 2 ores at once at the Edgeville furnace, up to and including adamantite bars).

Ring of forging
A ring of forging gives a 100% success rate while smelting iron bars, and lasts for 140 bars.

Goldsmithing gauntlets
While worn, goldsmithing gauntlets will give you 56.25 experience per gold bar smithed rather than the usual 22.5.

Sacred clay hammer
Obtained through the minigame Stealing Creation, this hammer doubles the amount of experience for each item smithed, but degrades after too many uses.

Dwarven stout/Dwarven stout (m)
A Dwarven stout gives a visible Mining and Smithing boost of one., while a mature Dwarven stout gives a visible Mining and Smithing boost of two.

Scroll of efficiency
Obtained through Dungeoneering for 20,000 reward tokens, a scroll of efficiency unlocks the wasteless smithing ability: When smithing an item that requires 3 bars or more, there is a chance of retaining a bar, all the way up to runite items.

Spicy stew (orange)
Created by adding orange spice into a Stew, this can provide a varying Smithing boost ranging from +5 to -5.

God Banners
God Banners can provide a Smithing boost of 2 which lasts for 30 minutes and can be used once a day. Must have completed the skill jobs for your chosen emissary.

Repairing Armour + Degradation

Some particular weapons and armour throughout the realm of Runescape "degrade", meaning that they gradually deteriorate over time the more that they are used, up to a point where it becomes "degraded", rendering it unusable, having reduced stats, or disappearing completely. Some particular weapons and armour can be repaired though the Smithing skill at a player owned armour stand, provided that is high enough, or through particular NPC's depending on which piece of equipment requires repairing. Both methods require a set amount of money to do so.

Listed in the table below are the select pieces of equipment that can be repaired through the Smithing skill at a player-owned armour stand or repaired by an NPC.

Equipment Notes

Barrows equipment
Last for 15 hours in combat before degrading and requiring repair. Degrades in increments of 25 each. Can be repaired by 4 NPC's: (Bob in Lumbridge, Tindel Merchant at Port Khazard, Dunstan at Burthorpe, Squire at the Void Knight''s Outpost (workshop area) or through a player owned armour stand.

"Superior" Player-owned Port armour
Lasts for 12 hours in combat before it degrades and requires repair. At 99 Smithing, Crafting and Runecrafting respectively, each set can be repaired for 2,100,000 coins.

Zaryte Bow
Obtained from Nex exclusively and requiring 80 Ranged to wield, this bow degrades completely after 60000 shots, and can be repaired at 2,000,000 through Bob in Lumbridge, however with 99 Smithing, this can be done for around a million coins at a player-owned armour stand.

Drygore weapons
Requiring 90 Attack to wield and dropped exclusively by the Kalphite King, Drygore weaponry lasts for 10 hours of combat before degrading and requiring repair. Regardless of Smithing level, 3,000,000 coins are required to repair a main-hand weapon, and 1,500,000 for the off-hand weapons. Can also be repaired through set amounts of "chitin scraps", yet the costs for repair are still relatively the same.

Ancient armour (Torva, Pernix and Virtus)
Ancient armour, requiring 80 Defence and Constitution, as well as 80 Ranged and Magic for Pernix and Virtus respectively, last for 10 hours of combat before degrading, and is obtained exclusively as drops from Nex. The costs of repairing Ancient armour vary depending on which piece of equipment requires repairing, at 100 Smithing (with a skillcape boost), this would equate to around 2,000,000 coins, more if chosen to repair by Bob at Lumbridge.

Smithing in Daemonheim

The player can smith various melee armours in Daemonheim. These use special ores which the player can only find in the dungeons. These ores can be obtained as monster drops, mined or bought from the smuggler.

Smelting Bars

Similair to on the surface the player first has to smelt ores they obtain into bars before they can use it for smithing.

Skill Mastery

When you have reached level 99 in the Smithing skill, you can purchase the Smithing skillcape and hood for 99,000 coins from Thurgo located south of Port Sarim, close to the entrance of the Asgarnian Ice Caves. The skillcape has a "boost" option that will push your Smithing level to 100 for a short time and allow you to perform the Smithing skillcape emote. Only members can purchase the cape itself, but free players can still perform the emote if they are wearing the cape.

If Smithing was your first skill to reach 99, you will be given an untrimmed Smithing cape, but if any of your other skills are at 99, you will be given a Smithing cape (t). If you have the untrimmed version of the cape and achieve level 99 in another skill, the cape will become trimmed automatically.The only way to keep an untrimmed cape is to used a Keepsake Box from Solomon's General Store.
