Iron bar detail.png

An iron bar is a metal bar refined through the Smithing skill by smelting two iron ore together, either using a furnace or the Superheat Item spell. Smelting an iron bar requires a Smithing level of 10 and grants 2 Smithing experience. Iron bars can be smelted 25% and 50% faster beginning at Smithing levels 14 and 17, respectively. Additionally, starting at Smithing level 19, there is a chance of smelting an extra bar without consuming additional ores.

The ring of forging enables the smelting of iron bars from only one iron ore.

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