A furnace is an interactive scenery item used by both free-to-play and member players to create items using the Smithing and Crafting skills.

Smithing[edit | edit source]

The furnace is used to smelt raw metal ores into bars. These metal bars may then be sold as-is, or forged into armour, weapons, and tools using a forge and anvil.

Crafting[edit | edit source]

Casting[edit | edit source]

The furnace may also be used to cast gold bars into jewellery (e.g. rings, necklaces, bracelets, amulets, etc.) provided the player has the appropriate mould and Crafting level.

Using silver bars, the player can also cast special items such as holy symbols, unholy symbols, tiaras, and lightning rods, again depending on their Crafting level and whether or not they use an appropriate item mould.

Glassblowing[edit | edit source]

Players may also craft molten glass by smelting soda ash and a bucket of sand, with a glassblowing pipe in their inventory or tool belt.

Players with Level 43 Magic may choose to use Superheat Item instead of furnaces for smelting, earning both Magic and Smithing experience, although this will prove costly as it requires 1 nature rune and 4 fire runes per bar. Superheat Item does not work for jewellery or melting glass.

Locations[edit | edit source]

Furnace chimneys.

With the Mining and Smithing rework, a furnace's proximity to a bank has become generally less important, as the player may store their ores and bars within the Metal Bank, accessible through any furnace, forge, or anvil. This being said, it's helpful to use a furnace located near a bank, as you will likely need to bank your products every so often.

All locations[edit | edit source]

Location Squares to bank Requirements Members Notes
Shilo Village 10 Shilo Village quest Yes check.svg The closest furnace to a bank in RuneScape, although the bankers have a smaller click area since there are no booths. As of an update on 8 May 2017, the furnace no longer requires a 20 coins entrance fee to use.
Edgeville 13 Easy Varrock Tasks Yes check.svg Contrary to what some people think, the removal of the door does not mean that it can now be used without completing the tasks.
Neitiznot 15 The Fremennik Isles started Yes check.svg The third-closest furnace to a bank in all RuneScape. Named clay forge. One-click bank chest. Next to an oven, which can be used to cook soda ash for glass-making. This furnace is superior due to the player being able to see the furnace and the bank chest without the need to move the camera, even in fixed mode.
Artisans' Workshop 16 None X mark.svg This furnace is located at the Artisans' Workshop in Falador with a bank chest in the next room.
Port Phasmatys 17 None Yes check.svg Used to be the closest furnace to a bank in RuneScape. Entering the city requires 2 ecto-tokens before completing the Ghosts Ahoy quest. Wearing a Ghostspeak amulet (or completing the hard Morytania achievements) speeds up banking but is not required.
Lumbridge 17 None X mark.svg This furnace is located north of Lumbridge Castle. The closest bank chest is at the Lumbridge Market (20 squares). It also has a smithing anvil by it.
Worker district 20 The Jack of Spades quest Yes check.svg The furnace can be used upon completion of the quest, however players require tier 6 Worker district reputation in order to access the nearby bank.
Piscatoris Fishing Colony 22 Swan Song quest Yes check.svg Quite close to a bank. A very nice furnace because there's nobody usually smelting here, and you can take short breaks to fish.
Prifddinas 23 Plague's End quest Yes check.svg This furnace is located in the Trahaearn Clan area. The bank chest is near the Trahaearn herald. This furnace is the closest to an Anvil.
Burthorpe 23 (Rear)
52 (Front)
None X mark.svg The furnace is just south of the bank (a one-click bank chest) and adjacent to anvils
Al Kharid 30 None X mark.svg This furnace is located just a little north of the bank.
Burgh de Rott 31 In Aid of the Myreque quest started Yes check.svg The bank is not accessible until partway through the quest. This furnace is not a good place to smelt as there are no significant mining areas nearby (except maybe for the Abandoned Mine). It is useful for smithing quest-related items and ores received from Temple Trekking.
Crafting Guild 33 40 Crafting X mark.svg Very close to a bank deposit box (requires Falador hard tasks). The closest bank chest is located just east of the guild, in the Clan Camp.
TzHaar City 39 (Main Plaza)
74 (Fight Pits)
90 (Fight Kiln)
None Yes check.svg Is actually a lava forge but has the same options as furnace. Bank is near, close by the gold mine.
Falador 39 (West bank)
54 (East bank)
None X mark.svg This furnace is located south of the centre of Falador. This is also a recommended furnace, though Al Kharid's furnace is slightly closer to a bank. It is also near an entrance to the Dwarven Mines.
East Ardougne 41 (North bank)
64 (East bank)
None Yes check.svg This furnace is close to two banks.
Zanaris 47 Lost City quest Yes check.svg
Keldagrim 48 The Giant Dwarf started Yes check.svg The furnace is actually the Blast Furnace minigame. Players with a smithing level lower than 60 must pay a fee of 2500 coins (1250 coins with a Ring of charos) to use it for 10 minutes. The upside is it does not require secondaries to make metal bars, and there is a nearby NPC selling ores.
Ports district 73 The Jack of Spades quest Yes check.svg The furnace can be used upon completion of the quest, however players require tier 6 Port district reputation in order to access the nearest bank.
Dorgesh-Kaan 106 Death to the Dorgeshuun quest Yes check.svg It can be found in Bartak's house in the southern part of the city. It is a unique open furnace, and can be used only for crafting glass and jewellery. An anvil can be found nearby, but both are somewhat far from the city's bank.
Enakhra's Temple 128 (On Tuska's back) Enakhra's Lament quest Yes check.svg Very far from a bank.
Entrana 150 roughly to Draynor bank, varies due to monk movement Yes check.svg This furnace is mainly used in Crafting to make glass as all the materials are on the island. The closest bank, Draynor is far away. However, there is a deposit box at Port Sarim docks near the ship to Entrana. Alternatively, players who meet the requirements can use the bank in their Player Owned Port.
Meiyerditch 74 (only after Lord of Vampyrium) Legacy of Seergaze quest (partway through) Yes check.svg Extremely far from both a bank or a mine, its use is mainly to create items for the quest. Or alternatively after The Lord of vampyrium, go inside of daeyalt mine, push east dayalt cart to Darkmeyer (gatehouse) and run east to bank. you can reverse the route by after entering to Refinery by castle doors, run south and then east until you get blocked by cart, and push it to daeyalt mine where you speak to miner to leave from mines to run back to furnace.
Port Sarim 86
From lodestone to anvil: 41
None X mark.svg This furnace is located inside Brian's Battleaxe Bazaar.
Rellekka 95 Lunar isle (varies due captain movement but shortest 95) The Fremennik Trials quest Yes check.svg A bank is a long walk away, but this furnace is the closest to an anvil in all of RuneScape for those who have not completed Plague's End.
Tyras Camp 104 to Catherby varies by 102-111 due charters moving around Regicide quest started Yes check.svg A really long walk away from a bank, unless the player uses charter ships to sail to a city with a nearby bank. However, players must pay 3200 coins per one-way trip (1600 after Cabin Fever or with Ring of Charos, or 800 with both).
Darkmeyer 107 To be filled Yes check.svg To be filled
Daemonheim N/A None X mark.svg Very close to an anvil, and the Smuggler. However, this furnace is only available while training dungeoneering.
Wilderness (Level 28) Varies (due to the banker moving) None X mark.svg Located in the Wilderness at level 28, it is only useful for the mines in the Wilderness, however players can also be killed by player killers while using this furnace.
