Ores in the metal bank

The metal bank is a dedicated bank where players can store all core ores and bars. It can be accessed via any anvil, forge, furnace, Burial Anvil, Burial Forge, ore box, or through the regular bank interface. The metal bank can also be used while smelting and smithing at the aforementioned objects. When smelting or smithing, ores and bars are taken directly from the metal bank without the need to withdraw to the inventory first. However, the metal bank cannot store smithed items - they have to be banked normally. When smelting, bars are not automatically deposited into the metal bank unless smelting gauntlets are worn. Silver or gold bars cannot be stored in the metal bank without completion of Family Crest and corrupted ore cannot be stored in the metal bank at all.

Just like the regular bank, every item in the metal bank can hold a maximum limit of 2,147,483,647 per item.

Bars in the metal bank

Depositing and withdrawing[edit | edit source]

The metal bank can be filled with regular or noted items and has a 'deposit-all' option, which deposits all ores and bars in the inventory and ore box. The ore box alone can also be emptied into the metal bank. The metal bank also has a 'withdraw-all' option that places noted versions of all the ores/bars in the inventory.

It is possible to deposit or withdraw specific ores and bars from the metal bank without having to empty the bank every time. However, ores can only be withdrawn from the furnace interface and bars can only be withdrawn from the forge/anvil interface. For example, to withdraw 10 rune bars, a player can visit any forge or anvil, right-click on the rune bar icon under 'Core Metals' and select the 'withdraw-x' option. The player will then be prompted for the value of x as usual.
