1-99 Smithing Guide

Alright. Before attempting this skill I recommend that you get yourself a good amount of cash. Once you have a bit of money, then you should continue with this guide to getting 99 Smithing as it is a highly respectable cape and skill. Let’s proceed shall we?

Where to Smith and Smelt:

My suggestion for F2P accounts is to Smelt at Al-Kharid and Smithing at Varrok West Anvils. For Members it is highly suggested to Smelt at Port Phasmatys and do the Smithing in Yanille or Varrock West. Please note Smithing is Making an object out of a bar and Smelting is making the bar itself.

Levels 1-15 (Both):

Note: You can follow this section or choose to do the quest “The Knight’s Sword” which will get you to level 29 Smithing.

To reach level 15 Smithing you will need:

- 389 Bronze Bars Smelted 

Levels 15-48 (F2P):

To reach level 48 Smithing you will need:

- 2,150 Iron Bars Smelted & Smithed
- 3,225 Iron Bars Smithed
- 6,499 Iron Bars Smelted

- 335 Iron ores
- 670 Coal 

You will smelt this into 335 Steel bars and then proceed in making Steel Platebodies. 

Levels 15-50 (P2P):

To reach level 50 Smithing you will need:

- 3,080 Iron ores

Levels 50-60 (Both):

Simply Smelt 10k Steel Bars. This requires…
