The methods in this guide may involve considerable risk, including (but not limited to): loss of money/items, unstable prices, and/or slow GE resale.
Reason: Unstable prices
You can discuss this issue on the talk page or edit this page to improve it.

See the below table for currently profitable items. All items have the same cumulative xp per 2-tick. These values all are cumulative (e.g. cumulative exp). By maintaining high heat plus double progress percentages from recommended gear and using powerburst of masterstroke, players can perform 97,920 progress per hour. This guide will assume 92,500 to give some room for error.

It's highly recommended that the player is at least level 99 Smithing to do this method since at level 99 you can smith elder rune 10% faster. It's also highly recommended to use the Superheat form prayer while smithing, as this allows you to go afk longer before reheating the items. Grace of the elves is optional, but it halves the prayer point drain of Seren prayers, meaning you'll drink fewer super prayer renewals.

Players can gain 6% more xp with full blacksmith's gear, and receive the benefit's of the Varrock elite armour without wearing the armour by completing the Easy New Varrock achievement. Luminite injectors on world 70 also helps.

  1. ^ Less with Scroll of Efficiency.
  2. ^ You can choose any elder rune + 5 item from the Smithing table for elder rune.
