An iron bar is a bar of metal, refined through the Smithing skill by smelting 2 iron ores in a furnace, requiring 10 Smithing and granting 2 Smithing experience. You can smelt iron bars 25% and 50% faster at 14 and 17 Smithing respectively. At 19 Smithing, you gain a chance of smelting an extra bar without using extra materials. For members, it is strongly recommended to use the ring of forging as it allows iron bars to be made with only 1 iron ore each.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Before the Mining and Smithing rework, noted iron bars could occasionally be found inside barrels, now iron stone spirits may be found instead.
- Before the Mining and Smithing rework, iron bars required level 15 Smithing and a single iron ore to be smelted. At that level, players had a 50% chance of failing, which would consume the ore without producing a bar. This chance decreased by 1% per level until reaching 20% at level 45. To obtain a 100% smelting sucess ratio, players needed to use Superheat Item, a ring of forging, the blast furnace or have level 99 Smithing.
