Portable forge detail.png

Portable forge were an item won on Treasure Hunter that acted as both an anvil and furnace when deployed, but not as a barbarian anvil. Using the forge provided 10% additional experience to most smithing actions (did not provide extra experience when smelting corrupted ore). This boost also worked for leveling up the Augmented crystal hammer and Hammer-tron. The furnace provided a 5% chance of providing an extra bar (including bane ore), while the anvil had a chance of saving one bar at a rate of 10% per bar used (this includes protean bars). Any extra bars that were smelted were deposited in the bank, and any bars that were saved while smithing remained in the inventory. When this happens, the following showed up in the chatbox:
You managed to make an extra bar from your ore in this exceptional furnace! It has been sent directly to your bank. or The portable anvil saved your bar!

It could be placed anywhere that you could light a fire and was both visible to and usable by all other players. It could not be placed in a Player-owned house. It could not be placed in an ongoing fight of Vorago, regardless of being able to light a fire there. It vanished after placed for 5 minutes; though more could be added to the already deployed forge which added more time with a maximum of 60 minutes. Although the player could still use the forge after it disappeared if you have clicked on it, they would no longer receive any of the benefits of the forge. When the forge disappeared while Smithing the player would be stopped unless smelting corrupted ore. It is unclear if this is intended behaviour or an oversight.

Right-click configure allows players to choose smelting or smithing as the left-click option of portable forges.

Jewellery that requires a furnace can only be made on a portable forge and not a portable crafter. However, the forge does not provide any of its other benefits when making jewellery.

You can use another player's portable forge and receive the same benefits. A popular place to do this is in world 2 at the bank in Burthorpe or at the Combat Academy in Lumbridge for members. This is particularly useful for training, as players like to use pulse cores at this location, giving a 2% bonus to any experience earned for 10 minutes for all players nearby. This can stack up to 10% and will combine with the forge's bonus experience rate of 10%. A popular free-to-play portable forge location is world 3 at the Combat Academy, next to the bank chest.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Portable forges were replaced with Luminite injectors along with the Mining and Smithing rework.
  • It is possible for wasteless smithing to activate together with the forge's bar saving ability.
  • On 15 June 2015, a bug was introduced that allowed players to use the portable forges in order to block players, preventing them from moving. This has since been fixed.
  • On 13 March 2017, the "Check duration" option was removed and the remaining time can now be checked by examining the item.
