The Smithing Guide in Runescape


Smithing is a production skill in which players make a wide variety of metal items from raw ore and purified bars of metal. It is the companion skill of Mining, which generates all of the raw materials used in Smithing.


The first step in making your own armor or weapons, is to smelt your ore into bars. To do this, go to any one of the furnaces located in towns all over the land of Runescape. When you have the ore in your inventory, simply click on the furnace to start smelting.

You can also use magic to smelt your bars if that is more your style by using the level 43 spell “Superheat Item” It requires 1 Nature rune and 4 Fire runes to cast this spell. Below you can find a list of the different bars you can smelt, and the required ores to do so.

At level 15 Smithing, you will succeed 50% of the time, and from level 45 Smithing onwards, you will succeed 80% of the time (gaining an extra 1% chance of success per Smithing level earned in between).

The next, and final step in making your own armour/weapons is to use an anvil. Simply use your bar with the anvil and you will get a pop-up box (shown below). All you have to do is click on the item you wish to smith. You can smith items in multiples of 1, 5, x, or Smith all. Please note that you need a hammer and the required bars in your inventory to make anything.
