Members have the advantage of access to more materials for training Smithing than free players. With the right methods and a bit of increased training time, members are able to make money while smithing. For a table showing profits versus experience made by smithing certain items, see Smithing/Smithing tables.

Although some methods are cheaper than others, smithing is generally either very expensive or very slow, depending on whether you buy or collect your materials.

Useful items[edit | edit source]

Blacksmith's outfit[edit | edit source]

Blacksmith's outfit equipped.png

Wearing components of the Blacksmith's outfit gives a percentage increase in the amount of Smithing experience gained. There are five pieces in the set: the headwear, chestpiece, legwear, gloves, and boots. Components of the Blacksmith's outfit can be won from Treasure Hunter. It is also purchasable at the Artisans Workshop for 50% respect per piece. If all pieces of the set are worn, the player gains an additional set bonus of 1% bonus experience.

Urns[edit | edit source]

Strong smelting urn.png

Urns can be used to gain additional Smithing experience while training. When held in the inventory, urns are filled as the player smelts ore. Only base experience gains count towards filling the urn. Full urns can be teleported away to receive additional experience, equivalent to 20% of the Smithing experience gained while filling the urn. Only one urn is filled at a time, though players may own up to a total of 10 full urns. If a player owns 10 full smithing urns they must teleport at least 1 away before they can fill more urns. Urns are only tradeable in their (nr), non-runed, forms. In order to use a smelting urn, the player must add an fire rune to it. This makes the urn untradeable and stackable.

Perfect juju smithing potions[edit | edit source]

Perfect juju smithing potion detail.png

When the perfect juju smithing potion's effect is active, the player has a 5% increased chance for double progress when smithing. Each dose of the perfect juju smithing potion lasts for 1 hour. The potion can be bought from the Grand Exchange or created by adding harmony moss (costing 4,940 gp) to a juju hunter potion (3) (costing 6,745 gp) with level 82 Herblore.

Hammer-trons/augmented crystal hammers[edit | edit source]

Augmentor detail.png

Players with at least level 22 Invention can discover how to create Hammer-trons. This also unlocks the ability to create augmented crystal hammers by using augmentors on crystal hammers. A tool gizmo may be added to an augmented hammer to give it perks. The following perks may be useful to players training Smithing:

Name Effect Number of ranks
Heat is lost twice as fast, but progress is earned 5-15% faster. 3
2-6% chance of making double progress. 3
0.8-4% chance per bar used in creation of an item to give the same components that would have been gained for disassembling the item, with the item remaining intact. 5
When equipped, +1% per rank additional experience, up to 50,000 XP per day. 3

To use an augmented hammer's perks, the player must have charges in their charge pack. Use of an augmented crystal hammer costs at most 0.31 divine charges from the player’s charge pack per second. This cost can be reduced by researching charge drain improvements or by adding the efficient perk to the item.

Brawling gloves (Smithing)[edit | edit source]

Smithing brawling gloves, obtainable from revenants, the Chaos Elemental and rare drop table provides a steady source of bonus Smithing experienced based on "charges". In non-wilderness areas, the gloves provide an additional 50% experience, but when used anywhere at or above level 47 Wilderness, the gloves give an additional 300% bonus experience instead.

Even though they will conflict with the blacksmith set, they still provide more experience. As the gloves are dependent on charges, they are best used with Rune ceremonial swords or dragonfire shields for the most experience (the latter can be done in the Wilderness for very high experience rates, but extremely risky); should either option be unfeasible, protean bars can be used instead.

Burial Smithing[edit | edit source]

  • Burial smithing is 2 times faster for the same amount of xp per item.
  • Requires highest upgraded item of that tier
  • Has no extra bar cost, but the item is destroyed in the process
  • Experience rates can exceed 1M/H when 2 Ticking with superheat form
  • You can also make burial sets which are the best XP/H in the game.

Free alternatives[edit | edit source]

These are some alternative methods that are free or could even yield profit.

Clan Citadels[edit | edit source]

The Clan Citadel can offer a Furnace (provided that the clan the player is in has one), which provides constant and free Smithing experience while doing their cap rate. As players maximise their caps every week to a fealty rank of 3, they will get an extra experience bonus when skilling in the citadel. Depending on the player's fealty rank and cap limit, they can reach to upwards of 342k Smithing experience per week, more with various bonuses. However, the Furnace requires charcoal from the Kiln and regular/precious ore from the Mine in order to function properly.

Protean bars[edit | edit source]

Protean bars, obtainable from Treasure Hunter, are a free source of Smithing experience. While the time it takes to "smelt" the bars is considerably slow, it does provide a large amount of experience at no cost to the player.

These bars are especially useful in the Wilderness when paired with Smithing brawling gloves at the lever to the Mage Arena, as the brawling gloves will provide the most bonus experience after level 50 Wilderness.

Completing quests[edit | edit source]

Some quests grant Smithing experience. Refer to the main article for more details.
