For information on training this skill, see Smithing training.

Smithing is one of several skills in RuneScape Classic. It allows players to make armour and weapons to sell to other players or to use for themselves.

Unlike Mining, Fishing and Woodcutting, which are gathering skills, Smithing is a production skill. It takes raw materials obtained from a gathering skill, in this case mining, and makes something else. It is popular because it can make a profit, and lets you provide equipment for you and your friends.

Smithing has two distinct parts: smelting, which is taking the ores from mining and turning them into metal bars, and forging, which is taking those bars and turning them into metal items.

Tools[edit | edit source]

Although most of the times the smithing skill requires for players to make use of the hammer, there are some additional tools that they may seldomly make use of. The Gauntlets of goldsmithing is a quest reward from Family Crest and although the Cannon ammo mould is tradable, players still need to have completed the Dwarf Cannon quest to make use of it.

Smelting[edit | edit source]

A player smelting steel. A coal bubble is visible above their head.

Once you've acquired all the ores you need, you need to smelt them into bars.

Furnace locations consist of:

The Al Kharid furnace is considered to be the most efficient because of its small distance from the bank.

Below is a table of bars, experience, and ores required:

Legendary Dragon Square Shield[edit | edit source]

Half Dragon Square Shield 1.png + Half Dragon Square Shield 2.png = Dragon Square Shield.png

At level 60 smithing you can repair the Dragon Square Shield. You will need both the left square half, an extremely rare drop from various monsters, and the right square half, purchased from Legends' Guild store for 750,000 coins. Hammering the shield at an anvil gives 75 smithing experience.

Boosts[edit | edit source]

Item Boost Visibility
Dwarven Stout 1 level Visible

Quests[edit | edit source]

The following quests give smithing experience rewards:

  • Tourist Trap - ability to smith dart tips and a choice of 2 x
  • The Knight's Sword -
  • Hero's Quest - Failed to parse (syntax error): {\displaystyle XP = (Level ∗ 50) + 75}
  • Legend's Quest - ability to smith Golden Bowls and a choice of 4 x

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Coal can be used on a furnace with iron ore in the player's inventory to smelt steel bars. This does not work with any other bar which requires coal to create.
  • Drinking a dwarven stout temporarily[Clarify] increases a player's smithing level by 1
  • The first player to gain 99 smithing was Bluerose13x [1]
  • If a player were to mine their own ores entirely they would accrue approx. 39,700,000 mining XP (this is calculated using various smithing methods, mostly by smithing steel platebodies) [Clarify]
