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.

Players with 15 Smithing can smelt iron ore into an iron bar by using it on a furnace, granting 12.5 Smithing experience. At level 15, there is a 50% chance of success (-72 coins profit), increasing by 1% per level, maxing out at 80% at level 45 (153 coins profit). Wearing a ring of forging (213.51 coins profit) or using the Superheat Item spell (-681 coins profit) ensures 100% success. The Blast Furnace can also be used to smelt iron ore at a 100% success rate.

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.

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

Its noted form can sometimes be found inside barrels.
