Steel is a metal made of coal ore and iron ore. It is light grey in colour. Steel is stronger than iron and is the third weakest metal in RuneScape Classic. Steel is the last metal in Classic which shares both a name and properties with a metal in the real world.

Iron rocks and coal rocks can be mined for iron ore and coal ore, which can be smelted into steel bars at level 30 Smithing. Steel bars can be used to smith steel weapons and armour. Steel armour and weapons require level 5 in Defense and Attack respectively to wield, whilst 6 Mining is needed to use a steel pickaxe.

Forging steel bars[edit | edit source]

Steel bars can be used for forging as part of the Smithing skill. By using a steel bar on an anvil with a hammer in the player's inventory, steel armour and weapons can be created. Each steel bar gives 37.5 Smithing experience when consumed to make an item.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Although black armour and weapons provide better bonuses than steel, many players decide to stick with steel to save up for mithril armour and weapons.
