Bronze bar detail.png

A bronze bar is a metal bar refined through the Smithing skill by smelting one copper ore and one tin ore together, either using a furnace or the Superheat Item spell. Smelting a bronze bar requires a Smithing level of 1 and grants 1 Smithing experience. Bronze bars can be smelted 25% and 50% faster beginning at Smithing levels 2 and 5, respectively. Additionally, starting at Smithing level 9, there is a chance of smelting an extra bar without consuming additional ores.

Bronze bars can be forged at an anvil into bronze equipment. A list of items produced from bronze bars and their requirements may be found here.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • It used to be possible to find noted bronze bars in barrels.
  • Bronze bars are used in a number of quests, including Observatory Quest, Tourist Trap and Dealing with Scabaras.
  • Bronze bars are smelted from an equal amount of copper ore and tin ore. In real life, bronze is typically around 90% copper and 10% tin.
