Smithing

Smithing is a skill that uses ores and bars to make useful things. It is popular, because players can sell their bars and armor they make. You make more money selling the bars made from the ores rather then smelting the bars into armor or weapons.

Smelting

There are two things in smithing, smelting and forging. Smelting is the process of taking a metal bar from an ore. To smelt a bar, you need an ore and you need to find a furnace. next, you right click on the furnace and select “smelt furnace” Then at the bottom of the screen, you need  to click the type of ore you want to make; you can right click the type of ore and select to make 5, 10 or “X” amount of bars.

All metals, with the exception of iron, have a one hundred percent success rate.  This means that every time you attempt to smelt it, it works. Iron has a 50% success rate which means it makes a successful bar only half of the time.

You can also smelt using magic, at magic level 43 you obtain the superheat spell. This gives you some smithing and some magic experience, it also gives you the advantage of not having to find a furnace.

Smithing

Smithing is making metal objects out of bars. Smithing requires a hammer and must be done on an anvil.  To do this, you click the bar in your inventory then click the anvil. A page will come up asking you what you would like to smith, you can left click the picture of the item to make one, or right click it and select to make 5, 10, or”X” number of that item.

Money Made

If you do not wish to smelt bars into armor or weapons, you sell them, along with ore you would not like to smelt. This gives more money than making armor or weapons and then selling them.  The most reccomended un smithed bar to sell is steel.
