Runescape Smithing Guide

There are no tricks to smithing, no shortcuts, and it takes a great deal of time and patience to get to 99 smithing. But there are ways to shorten the long period of time.

First, if you are in it only for the money, it’s not worth it, just go merchant. I make around 500 coins for every rune ore I buy, and it depends how many rune ores you can get. You need to want 99 smithing, just because you want it.

For Who?

Not for the extremely rich, if you plan on spending 130m on smithing, just buy the steel bars, although it does take quite a while to get 99 smithing if your smithing purely steel bars-Not for any p2p noob.

If you are a 1337 merchant, just merchant than smith, merchant, smith, merchant, smith, merchant, smith and so on.

It is for the people that aren’t very wealthy and who’d like to get closer to 99 smithing-Those that have patience

What you need


You need money to start you off, around 600k is good to start with, mine ores if really needed.

If you have somewhat a considerable amount of cash, don’t bother mining ores.Just buy the ores so you won’t waste time mining.

Purchasing Prices


These are the prices you should be paying, may change overtime.
Paying a bit more will get them faster, but go to high and you’ll start losing money that could have been saved-if your paying to low it just going to take longer to buy them .

Cost per XP (smithing bars into plates)


What I’d like to do was determine on how much money 1 smithing exp would cost me, assuming we’re always going to be making plates.

Do this because if you think you have enough cash to get to a certain level, like to level 85, you can check it by taking the cash your going to use and divide it by cost per XP and find out how much XP you will get from your cash you used.

Prices can change depending on how much you buy the bars for*also always take the market price of bars, never the cost it took you to make it, the profit/loss is yours when making the bar

Iron is the cheapest-steel is the fastest bars to get in quantity-mith is fast and somewhat cheap, but hard to find-addy is fast and a bit more expensive.

Example:If you have 10m, take 10m and divide it by price per XP for steel bars, 10.1, and you get 990,099, that number is the number of smithing XP you’ll get when you use all of your 10m cash on steel bars

if your using iron bars, 10m / 7.6 = 1,315,789 XP-400k XP difference if your using 10m, but iron bars are slower.

Levels 1-29

Do the Knights sword quest, great smithing XP-Getting to level 30 should not be a problem, smith and smelt bronze or iron, buying bars is ok because it won’t cost to much to get to level 30.

Levels 30-69


Buy a lot of coal and iron and smelt steel bars at Al Karid, try to buy in a 2:1 coal:iron ratio-Do not smith the bars or you will end up losing money, instead sell them at 550-600 ea at world 1, and try to sell in bulk-This method gets you: 7k smithing XP, and 40k an hour-With more money, increase the size of your stock and repeat-Smelting mith is not generally a good idea since it costs more to make the bars than to sell-Also while smelting, try to buy some steel bars from other smelters to merchant off them, you’ll need the extra money.

Levels 70-84


Continue with smelting steel or – Buy the add ores and coal and smelt using the furnace, and sell the bars, it will be difficult to find an add bar buyer, super heating will cost to much-With the money you have gained off smelting steel bars, buy some bars to make it go faster, iron bars are better because they are cheaper waste (refer to cash per XP table).

Levels 85+

Should be a breeze now-Make and sell rune axes (slow XP but good cash)-Superheat rune bars and sell, or get someone like me to smith into better items-Do some rune super heating for people who are to lazy or can’t do it themselves-At this point if you really want 99 smithing, with the profit you’re making off the rune you can continue to smith iron to add plates until you reach 99 smithing, or you can get to 96 smithing and just make rune kites with stouts.

Opportunity Costs


Try to take the best path that suits you, and ask yourself could i have done something else? and analyze your choices and compare it to see which one is better-suppose you have steel bars waiting to be smithed, but since we know that the XP per bar is kind of high, sell them and buy iron bars instead, in the end you’ll receive more smithing xp, but will spend a bit more time-time is still an important factor, smithing steel bars will save you more time than smithing iron bars, and the money you could have saved from the iron bars can be earned back when you make rune because you got their faster.

General Tips

Find something to do while smelting, talk to your friends, surf the web, do your homework, etc.-use smithing/smelting calculators on fan sites if your interested in knowing how close to are to the next lvl-use the Runescape forums or go to w1 fally east to buy and sell ores and bars-you have run, use it-do things in large scale, don’t like make 100 steel bars than sell than buy 200 coal and 100 iron, do things in like 1000s-all smithing should be done at varr west, and smelting at Al karid.

I have probably told you nothing that you didn’t know, that’s how simple smithing is. It just takes a long time.

    This guide is terrible. (Not spamming or anything)
    Merchenting is never really succesful, let alone good for getting a 99 skill

    Quote:lol@u:try something simple like wcing first and get money of that then do it
    He’s right wc for money, or do green dragons.
    Warning:Smithing is an extremely hard 99 skill to get. Do not attempt it unless u have alot of money, very bored, and have alot of patience!

    Nice guide, personally for me I would mine my own coal and iron (for mining xp), smelt them into steel bars and make loads of cannonballs and sell them or use them for training range. Might take longer, but everyone does have their preferences and that’s just mine, I like gaining lots of xp from different skills in the process.

    cannonballs give good profit (REALLY good profit for lvl 40) and are pretty easy to do, but take longer because it takes me about 5 minutes to get through an inventory of the damn things >.< they give better xp than smelting steel bars as well. But, apart from that, they give some overall good experience. I might actually smelt my steel bars and then turn thm into cannonballs, still making money while also making a decent amount of exp :) nice guide btw, are u 99 Smithing?

  52. Great Guide
    Posted February 14, 2009 at 9:26 am

    I like the guide, and it’s a shame so many people have negative attitudes. Personally, if time isn’t a big factor, than iron plate bodies are the way to go. For example:

    You spend 1 million gp to buy iron bars. That will give you apprx. 4184 iron bars (239 each).
    With 4184 bars, you can make apprx. 836 iron plate bodies. ( 5 bars per plate body). 836 iron plates will give you 104k experience (125xp per plate)

    For the same amount of money, 1mil, if you buy steel bars, you will only get around 1666 bars. And smithing plate bodies will only get you 187.5xp per plate apprx. 60k experience.

    So you will get on average 40k MORE experience than if you used steel.

    This is great if you don’t want to spend a lot of money, and you are not in a hurry. (you can’t be impatient if you want to up smith anyway so this is a great way to go, try it)

    Great guide.

    Posted February 14, 2009 at 6:11 pm

    this guide is terrible. smithing=money, just buy (if you have tons of time mine) 2:1 ratio of coal and iron, smith the bars, and make c balls, and you earn money plus get good exp. once again, no hurry.

    this guid was ok 5 out of 10 u guess but you should tell us how much exp you get for smelting this stuff. i think wcing is better though because its easy and costs virtualy no money, my wc is 80 now it would be so much higher but i stopped to merchant and me and my friend found an item(s) that can make you 500k a day. i had 10m but spent it and my friend hasnt spent it and now has 15m after a really short period and the best thing is that you can go train or wc and fish for extra cash! pm me on runescape anytime for tips and advise my rs name is xd56.

    platebodies and then continue until you can make get 99 smithing and then just keep making full rune. You can dicide to buy then ores if your rich or mine them i mine them so i’m raising 2 skills to 99 at the same time :)

    I have a suggestion.

    30-35 you should just do what the guide says.

    then 35-70, you could do what the guide says, or make more money with more xp and cash per bar. My advice is:

    Do Dwarf Cannon if you haven’t. It’s a 20 minute quest, very easy. The do what the guide says and make steel bars. But instead of selling them, get a ammo mould from the engineer dwarf on ice mountain. Then use all the bars you just made on a furnace and make cannonballs. You get 4 from each bar, totalling to around 600k every 500 steel bars.

    Your welcome :D

    …. Pretty basic. Lame for f2p, and you should have included p2p. This guide did make me laugh, however, when you put “1337 merchant” lmfao. What a joke, I don’t plan to use this anytime soon.
    Thanks for spending your-apparently wasted-time writing this guide! The path that this takes to 99 smith seems as though it was made for ppl with no-life, much like yourself. Someone with tons of time to waste… but hey, might as well have taken such a long time to write a way for other people to waste their time too, huh? Misery sure does love company.

    cheers blake.

    Good guide, but maybe remove some of the comments as it takes ages for them to all load.
    Or make a next page feature like on youtube.

  77. Posted May 22, 2010 at 3:47 am

    now there is the grand exchange which is a great tool. starting with 100k will help it go faster.

    first i suggest getting to lvl 30 by mining and smithing bronze bars

    then at lvl 30 buy coal and iron in a 2:1 coal:iron ratio. smelt those and sell the bars until lvl 50. good exp and decent $$$

    at lvl 50 do the same with mithrill in a 4:1 coal:mithril ratio until lvl 70 and sell the bars. better exp not as good $$ but still decent.

    at lvl 70 is the real money just do the same with addy but now i suggest superheating. it will take a load of time off. remember buy addy at a 6:1 coal:addy ratio. do this until lvl 85

    at 85 switch to runite bars. 8:1 coal:rune ratio and sell the products. makes great money and then when lvl 99 you can smith plate bodies and make a ton.

    Well, I’ve read it and i\’ve got a lot to add to it.

    First of all, if you want to save money/time you can get sacred clay hammers at stealing creation. Which are easy to get when you’ve got all your skills 60-80 or higher. At that point they will save cash and time! The hammers give 200% xp instead of the usual 100%.
    When your skills are lower like 20-40 don’t get them to save time. Because getting 20k points in the mini-game takes longer then just training the xp.

    Then, you’ve got iron knives. This is the only way to make money with smithing, without mining. And you can just run between G.E. bank and anvil in varrock. Quite a good way to train, but at 70 it gets too slow and too boring.

    When 70, and if you have 60 mining just mine yourself the ingredients to make mithril bars. Make mith plates and sell them, with the hammers this goes pretty quick when you’ve mined a lot of ores.

    What he says is pretty smart, switch techniques. Switch items and bars and do whatever you feel like. If you’ve got 1M buy some bars and make stuff of it that gives you like 900k back. Do research, throwing knives, bolts and arrowheads are usually the your best option. Especially if you will fletch your bolts and heads later.

    So finally, the best plates you can make are the fastest. Iron knives is the only profitable thing at the moment.
    Good luck

    @Snatchy:
    1st – the guide is outdated
    2nd – it was meant for f2p only :D
    3rd – thanks for the comment/tips

    ok guys stop being stupid plz he spent a lot of his work putting this together to help you achieve your goal faster.
    1st he said if you start with 600k it will be easier which it is!
    2nd what i do is buy 25k coal and 12.5k iron which is about 5m…
    3rd i sell then and get 7m.. thats a 2m profit..
    dont rage at me saying i dont have have 5m to start of with bla bla bla…

    you dont ever just start out with money…
    mine clay will you have your 600k thats about 6k clay doesnt take that long maybe like 13 hours….
    and not 13 hours all day long take breaks and take some rests. you guys expect to get money like with a finger snap you wont. it will take some time so sit down and be patient. what i did was mine clay till i got 50k not that long maybe an hour or 2.. then i used the 50k to 1m method.. and then worked from their
