Steel is a metal stronger than iron, it is the third weakest metal in Classic. Steel is the last smithable metal in RuneScape which coincides with a metal in the real world. It is light grey in colour.

A steel bar is smelted using coals and iron ore. They are used for steel smithing weapons and armour. Steel armour and weapons require level 5 in Defense and Attack respectively to wield, whilst 6 Mining is needed to use a Steel pickaxe.


  • Although black armour and weapons provide better bonuses than steel, many players decide to stick with steel to save up for mithril armour and weapons.
