Mithril bar detail.png

A mithril bar is a bar of metal, refined through the Smithing skill by combining 1 mithril ore and 1 piece of coal in a furnace, and granting 5 Smithing experience, or by casting the Superheat Item spell. Smelting a bar of mithril requires level 30 Smithing. You can smelt mithril bars 25% and 50% faster at 31 and 37 Smithing respectively. At 38 Smithing, you gain a chance of smelting an extra bar without using extra materials.

Mithril ore can be mined at level 30 Mining, while coal requires level 20 Mining.

A mithril bar can be smithed, creating mithril weapons and armour at an anvil. A list of mithril items that can be smithed from mithril bars and the Smithing levels required can be found at Smithing/Smithing tables.

Lore[edit | edit source]

Mithril is a bluish purple-tinged metal which is both stronger and lighter than steel. The early dwarves used it widely in their equipment and machinery, but by the end of the First Age they preferred the more durable adamant and used mithril almost exclusively for jewelry. Mithril is the strongest metal that humans can easily work with, because it can still be melted in primitive coal furnaces. Being rare on the surface, it was highly prized by the early Fremennik and swords made of the material became valuable heirlooms.[1]
