Iron bar detail

An Iron bar is a bar of refined iron ore. Players can smelt it with the Smithing skill by using an iron ore on a furnace or by using the magic spell Superheat Item.

When a player smelts iron ore in a furnace, there is a chance that the ore will will be too impure to yield an iron bar, resulting in the loss of the ore and the Smithing experience that would've been earned. As you level up Smithing, the chance of yielding an iron bar improves. At level 15, the success rate begins at 50%, and increases by 1% with each level until reaching the maximum success rate of 80% at level 45 smithing.

However, there are a few ways to successfully smelt an iron bar 100% of the time. See:

An iron bar can be smithed on an anvil through the Smithing skill to create iron weapons and armour, granting 25 Smithing experience per bar used. A list of iron items that can be smithed from iron bars and the Smithing levels required can be found at Smithing/Smithing tables.

It may be more profitable to sell iron ore instead of making it into bars, since the release of Artisan's Workshop increased the demand for ore.

Iron bars are also the tertiary ingredient in infusing Iron minotaur pouches for the Summoning skill.

Iron bars are also a 100% drop from Iron dragons, at a rate of five bars each dragon.

Its noted form can sometimes be found inside barrels.
