User:Zorak plorak/Smithing release
Jump to navigation Jump to search
Upon release, smithing items required much higher levels, which meant that obtaining higher-tier Plate Mail Bodies or 2-handed Swords was virtually impossible. By April 2001, almost half of the tip.it-users, the biggest fan site at the time, thought that smithing was the non-combat skill that needed to be updated most urgently. Eventually, new smithing tables were released on 8 May 2001. While smelting levels remained the same, items that required more bars could now be made at lower levels.
