What is smithing?
Smithing is a production skill through which players may create a wide variety of metal items from ore and metal bars. It is the companion skill of Mining, as the ores are acquired from mining are smelted into metal bars at furnaces, and then hammered into items at anvils. Many smithable items are useful for combat and completing clue scrolls.
All you need for smithing, are a hammer, ore and bars.
There are different places to get a hammer, but an easy way is to get it from the shop keeper or the shop assistant at north west of bank at Edgeville for 177 coins.
See the Mining skill how to get ores.
There are a few ways to get bars:
- Smelt them at a furnace;
- Buy them from players;
- Get them from achievements;
- Buy them from the mining store.
You can only buy bronze and iron bars at the mining store. His name is miner Magnus. You can find him at Neitznot mining, dwarf mining guild and members zones.
To make bars, you have to smelt ores at the furnace. The most recommended furnaces are at Al Kharid and donator zone, because they are close to a bank.
Walk to the north after your teleport.
Walk to the south to see the furnace. You can also type ::dz to to go the donator zone.
How to train smithing?
When you made or bought your bars, you just need your hammer and bars in your inventory and click on the anvil. Click on the item you want to make and you will get the xp.
There are a few smithing locations near to a bank.
Teleport to Yanille and run to the south east.
Teleport to Varrock and run to the west.
Teleport to donator zone and run to the south.
The smithing master can be found at Neitiznot, dwarf mining guild and the members zones. He can give you your skilling cape for free when you reach level 99. In addition, he can give you skilling tasks to obtain money or smithing points (you will also get participation points when you finish your task). Finally, you can see his master's shop where you can spend your smithing points.
This is the suggested method for 1-99 smithing (without smithing xp while smelthing and when you start at level 1 smithing):
Note: to make a fast start with smithing, it's recommended to buy bronze and iron bars at the shop.
Note: you can buy iron bars at the shop, so it recommended to make iron armour until mithril.
