This stat shows how experienced you are at forging together metals mined from the Earth.

To level smithing you must use a metal bar on an anvil and make Armor, Weapons, or Tools with it, or use ore with a Forge to make ingots.

The ores you need can be found across Gielinor, but Forges are only found in populated areas.

SmeltingEdit

Smelting is done at a Forge, and by right clicking the lava with the ore. The menu (Right) shown is always the same, regardless of the type of ore, and the menu is special in that it is the only to include "Make All" functions;The lower of the two ingots performs this function.

Smelting

Make-AllEdit

The Make-All function is unique to the Forge, allowing you to smith multiple bars at a time, provided you have the ore. Using this function will not allow any physical player movement or else the smithing process will halt and you must use the forge again.

Warning: this function will consume all ores it can in your inventory, until it does not have the required materials for the selected ingot.

ForgingEdit

Forging is done by right clicking an Anvil with an Ingot. This then brings up the screen relevant to the material you are using. While the actual items differ; the screen usually looks like the image at the side, with the armour and tools in the same place.

If possible, it's advisable to smith armour, as the pickaxes and swords cannot be sold to the shopkeeper.

For those who are wondering whether to mine and smith iron or steelEdit

These numbers were calculated using the south east Varrock mine, and do not factor in the time it takes to walk between furnaces and anvils, those times would be equal for iron and steel anyway, and therefore do not need to be included here. This guide applies to those who mine, smelt and smith their own ores.

Chestplates were smithed at the smithing stage.

Mining timesEdit

Time to mine 2 stacks of coal = 180 seconds

Time to mine 1 stack of iron = 150 seconds

SteelEdit

total time for one stack of steel = 330 seconds

exp from smelting = 64*18 = 1152

exp from smithing = (64/5)*187 = 2393.6

total exp per stack 1152 + 2393.6 = 3545.6

3545.6/330 = 10.7 exp per second

IronEdit

total time for one stack of iron = 150 seconds

exp from smelting = 64*13 = 832

exp from smithing = (64/5)*125 = 1600

total exp per stack = 832 + 1600 = 2432

2432/150 = 16.2 exp per second

ConclusionEdit

Iron yields 16.2 exp per second, whereas steel only yields 10.7
