Smithing is considered as one of the hardest and most expensive skills, because the xp rates are low and the bars require a lot of time to smelt and gather. The Smithing skill uses the ores obtained with the Mining skill to smelt bars and smith items out of them on an anvil. For nearly every bar you need several ores to refine it and for nearly every item you need multiple bars, thus the Smithing skill requires high amounts of ores to advance.
To smelt bars you need ores obtained with the Mining skill. You use one of the ores on a Furnace to start smelting bars. In Emps-World the iron ores will turn into iron bars with a success rate of 100%. All bars can also be smelted with the Superheat Item spell on the normal spellbook, this requires a Magic level of 43. Smelting bars does not have any kind of smithing level requirement.
You can boost the smithing XP you gain by 5% by wearing the Goldsmith gauntlets while either smelting bars at a furnace or while using the superheat spell. This XP boost applies to every kind of bar.
|Tin ore and Copper ore||Bronze bar||24|
|Iron ore||Iron bar||60|
|Silver ore||Silver bar||92|
|Iron ore and 1 Coal||Steel bar||128|
|Gold ore||Gold bar||152|
|Mithril ore and 2 Coal||Mithril bar||200|
|Adamant ore and 3 Coal||Adamant bar||288|
|Runite ore and 4 Coal||Rune bar||380|
To start smithing you need bars and a hammer bought from the general store. Find an anvil, for example in Varrock, use the bar on the anvil and an interface will appear asking you what item you'd like to smith.
Smithing items that require more bars at the same time will speed up smithing a full inventory of bars, but smithing arrowheads or bolts might be more profitable.
Below is a smithing experience table of the amount of smithing experience that you can gain from every bar you smith and the minimum level you need for smithing it.
