|Examine||It's a bar of rune.|
A rune bar is a bar of metal, refined through the Smithing skill by smelting a runite ore and 8 pieces of coal in a furnace, requiring 85 Smithing and granting 50 Smithing experience. Outside of Daemonheim, it is the highest level bar in the game.
At any anvil, players can smith rune bars into various rune weapons and armour, granting 75 Smithing experience per bar used. A list of items that may be produced from rune bars, the Smithing levels required to produce them, and other information may be found here.
The best high alchemy return for smithed rune items is obtained from the Rune 2h sword, Rune platelegs and Rune plateskirt, each giving 38,400 coins or 12,800 per bar, and requiring level 99 Smithing. A lower level alternative is the Rune sword which gives 12,480 coins from a single bar at level 89.
