The exterior of the workshop

The Artisans' Workshop is a Smithing workshop founded by Aksel, located in the south-east corner of Falador.

The workshop is divided into two rooms. The western part of the building is a general purpose smithing area. It contains forges and furnaces. Egil and his rewards shop can also be found here.

The eastern part of the building is where players can make burial equipment, which requires 40 Smithing, but all players can access the area. A bank chest is located in the middle of the east wall.

It was first mentioned in the Behind the Scenes article of March 2011. It was released on 8 March 2011. The music Metalwork unlocks inside.

Activities[edit | edit source]

Burial equipment[edit | edit source]

Main article: Burial equipment

Adamant equipment and above can have their highest +X items made into burial equipment (i.e. Rune+3 and Elder Rune+5 can be made into Rune and Elder Rune burial equipment respectively.). Burial equipment works like upgrading equipment but requires no additional bars and, once complete, destroys the item automatically. They still use the standard smithing mechanics of heat and progress. The burial process requires half of the progress required for the highest +X while providing the same XP for no extra cost in bars (e.g. Elder Rune+5 requires 1600 progress per base bar cost and gives 16,000 XP; Burial Elder Rune requires 800 progress per base bar cost and gives 16,000 XP).

Players can also make burial armour sets (helm, platebody, platelegs, gauntlets, and boots) in one go for +5% base XP. This requires the same amount of progress for smithing the pieces individually (but is slightly faster due to not having to waste heat/ticks between items). This is the best XP/h for smithing.

Ceremonial swords[edit | edit source]

Main article: Ceremonial sword

Whenever the player finishes smithing any item in the workshop (including burial equipment), they have a chance to receive a ceremonial sword design. The chance scales with the progress required for the item to ensure faster or slower items generate designs at the same rate. Players can only own one design at a time. If they do not have the inventory space to hold the design when this random event happens, Egil will hold it for the player temporarily. Players may speak to him to claim it when they have made space for it. Alternatively, Lige Tonweight will keep trying to give players the design each time they finish smithing another item and stop when there is space for it.

The design received is random and determines which sword pattern is to be made (I-V) and the metal the sword is to be made from (iron-rune). The experience reward is balanced to be generous for the player's level for the time spent, and very generous for materials since no materials need to be used.

Burst pipes[edit | edit source]

Players smithing at anvils, with pipes in the foreground
  • The burst pipes can be found on the floor of the main level around the furnace that gives you ingots; the burst pipes will have steam coming out of them.
  • A minimum Smithing level of 50 is required to repair burst pipes. Boosts can be used.
  • Prior to the purchase of Repair Expert fixing a burst pipe gives Smithing experience equal to two times the Smithing level.
  • 50 more experience is received for fixing burst pipes after the Repair Expert reward is purchased, for a total of (level*2)+50 smithing experience.
  • Burst pipes are instanced; each one will be seen by only one player. If not repaired, burst pipes persist for a long time (perhaps indefinitely), but they do not persist when a player logs out.
  • Fixing ~21-26 pipes awards 1% respect.
  • Only a maximum of 6 burst pipes may appear at a time: 3 on the north side of the workshop and 3 on the south side.
  • There is a high chance a burst pipe may appear immediately after completing a ceremonial sword order.
  • The same pipe may burst again immediately after having had repaired it.

Respect[edit | edit source]

Respect is a currency used in the Artisans' Workshop to buy rewards from the Artisans' Workshop Reward Shop. Players earn 1% respect for every 10,000 experience gained while smithing in the workshop. Players cannot have more than 100% respect at a time.

Smelting ore into bars does not yield respect, even if the player gains 10,000 experience while smelting. This includes corrupted ore. XP obtained from protean bars also yields no respect.

Rewards[edit | edit source]

Artisans' Workshop Reward Shop

Players can buy these rewards from Egil in the west of the workshop: Rewards can be bought using 'Respect', which is earned for working in the workshop. The respect goes up roughly 1% per 10k experience[1] (assuming no experience bonus is applied). Unlocking Work on Your Artisan II rewards is one of the requirements needed to get a trimmed completionist cape.

The maximum amount of respect a player can have is 100%. Therefore, players will need to to buy rewards in exchange for their reputation in order to continue earning more reputation for further rewards.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • After an update, the armour smithing interface was changed. The progress meter was titled "Cooking" and had the cooking skill icon.
  • The desk with moulds in the cannon repair room used to be called cannon barrel desk, even having the same examine text as the real barrel desk.
  • Two houses were taken out in order to make space for the workshop, one of which housed a scared man who claimed to have seen a "thing". He was removed and is no longer in the game.
  • A glitch exists when using the ceremonial sword interface. Normally when a player runs out of cooldown or finishes the sword perfectly, the smithing interface automatically closes. If the player has a sword polishing kit in their inventory, breaks their sword and runs out of cooldown, the kit will stop the interface from closing as normal and allow the player to "continue working" without any cooldown left.
