Smithing is one of several skills in RuneScape Classic. It allows players to make armour and weapons to sell to other players or to use for themselves.

Unlike Mining, Fishing and Woodcutting, which are gathering skills, Smithing is a production skill. It takes raw materials obtained from a gathering skill, in this case mining, and makes something else. It is popular because it can make a profit, and lets you provide equipment for you and your friends.

Smithing has two distinct parts: smelting, which is taking the ores from mining and turning them into metal bars, and forging, which is taking those bars and turning them into metal items.

SmeltingEdit

Once you've acquired all the ores you need, you need to smelt them into bars.

Furnace locations consist of:

The Al Kharid furnace is considered to be the most efficient because of its small distance from the bank.

Below is a table of bars, experience, and ores required:

Bronze bar Bronze 1 6.25 Copper 1 Tin
Iron bar Iron 15 12.5 Iron (50%* chance of success) None

Legendary Dragon Square ShieldEdit

Half Dragon Square Shield 1 + Half Dragon Square Shield 2 = Dragon Square Shield

At level 60 smithing you can repair the Dragon Square Shield. You will need both the left square half, an extremely rare drop from various monsters, and the right square half, purchased from Legends' Guild store for 750,000 coins. Hammering the shield at an anvil gives 75 smithing experience.

QuestsEdit

The following quests give smithing experience rewards:

TriviaEdit

  • Coal can be used on a furnace with iron ore in the player's inventory to smelt steel bars. This does not work with any other bar which requires coal.
  • Drinking a dwarven stout temporarily increases a player's smithing level by 1
  • The first player to gain 99 smithing was Bluerose13x.
