FANDOM


Members have the advantage of access to more materials for training Smithing than free players. With the right methods and a bit of increased training time, members are able to make money while smithing. Members also have access to areas with less of a distance between the furnace and the bank, such as Port Phasmatys and the Trahaearn section of Prifddinas. For a table showing profits versus experience made by smithing certain items, see Smithing/Smithing tables. Although some methods are cheaper than others, Smithing is generally either very expensive, or very slow, depending on whether you buy or collect your materials.

Useful itemsEdit

Level 1-30: Iron 2h swordsEdit

There are various methods to get level 1-29 in Smithing but the fastest is to complete the quest The Knight's Sword. Then train to level 30 by smithing iron 2h swords.

For efficiency's sake, you might want to consider using rings of forging, which give you a 100% iron smelting rate for 140 ores. You can get them from the Grand Exchange.

Alternative 4: Smelting corrupted oreEdit

Smelt corrupted ore at any furnace. This yields about 220,000 experience per hour but this doesn't take the time needed to get the ores into consideration. You can get the ores by mining Seren stones (requiring 89 mining) or by opening the crystal chest located with the Iorwerth Clan (you get it more often during the Iorwerth Voice of Seren).

Free alternativesEdit

These are some alternative methods that are free or could even yield profit.

Cannonball MethodEdit

Cannonballs are slow and give less experience than any other steel smithing (roughly 13,000 experience/hour). They used to be frequently made since they used to turn a significant profit, however, there are better money makers in game now than there used to be. While wearing Morytania legs 2 or higher, the speed of making cannonballs in Port Phasmatys furnace is doubled so it is possible to reach around 25/28k experience per hour and more profit.

Clan CitadelsEdit

The Clan Citadel can offer a Furnace (provided that the clan the player is in has one), which provides constant and free Smithing experience while doing their cap rate. As players maximize their caps every week to a fealty rank of 3, they will get an extra experience bonus when skilling in the citadel. Depending on the player's fealty rank and cap limit, they can reach to upwards of 342k Smithing experience per week, more with various bonuses. However, the Furnace requires charcoal from the Kiln and regular/precious ore from the Mine in order to function properly.

Completing quests Edit

Some quests grant Smithing experience. Refer to the main article for more details.
