It's highly recommended that the player has at least level 94 Smithing to use this method since at level 92 you have a 10% chance of doubling a bar while smelting and at level 94 you smelt elder rune bars 50% faster. It's also highly recommended to use the Superheat Form prayer while smelting as this allows you to smelt bars 0.6 seconds faster. Grace of the elves is optional, but it halves the prayer point drain of Superheat Form, meaning you'll drink less super prayer renewal doses.
Without Superheat Form, at level 94 Smithing you can smith 2,000 bars in an hour.
With level 94 Smithing and Varrock elite and New Varrock hard achievements completed, wearing a modified blacksmith's helmet and using the Superheat Form prayer, you can smelt 3,390 bars in an hour on average.
