Hellfire metal detail.png

Hellfire metal is an Archaeological material that can be obtained through excavating material caches or various excavation sites, requiring level 36 Archaeology, at various dig sites around RuneScape.

Hellfire metal is required to restore various artefacts. As players increase their Archaeology level and use higher tier mattocks, they are able to excavate hellfire metal at quicker rates.

Hellfire metal, like other Archaeology materials, can be stored in the material storage container. An unlimited amount of hellfire metal can be stored in the material storage container.

History[edit | edit source]

Hellfire metal is a form of steel forged at a hellfire forge within the Infernal Source. Hellfire metal is a burning metal used by demonkind to make weapons, armour and art.

During the God Wars, an Aviansie inventor codenamed 'Howl' blended hellfire metal with warforged bronze, Everlight silvthril, and stormguard steel utilizing quintessence as a catalyst to create a new metal, which was named aetherium alloy.
