This article is about training the Smithing skill. For the skill itself, see Smithing
|This page is out of date (v1.0.1).
There are several items you can use to increase the rate at which you train the Smithing skill:
It should be noted that the results of Smithing are used in other methods, so unless you need to unlock some item to craft it, there is no need to rush Level 99.
If you have some other leftover ores, the general approach is to smelt bars and then use most of them per craft by smithing platebodies if they're unlocked. You can smith other items - it will just take longer because the XP per used bar is always the same.
The method below assumes that you have Mining Skillcape. If you don't have it yet, please refer to Mining/Training.
The idea of the method is to make items that take most bars per craft.
- Mine ores
- Smelt bars
- Make items that eat most bars. The best one is the highest available Platebody. Stop on Rune Platebody and do it until Level 99.
Use Smithing Gloves if you can afford to maintain charges above zero.
- If you have not enough coal and will need Rune Essence in the future, mine it with Mining Skillcape. Otherwise mine Coal Ore with it.
Use Mining Gloves if you can afford to maintain charges above zero.
- Sell created platebodies.
The table below shows how many bars you need to smelt and then use to create items with in order to reach the next threshold. The Steel Bar is skipped because it triples the mining time, and you're likely to overmine something with such short timings.
|The number of bars was calculated by using the "Melvor Idle Rate & Resource Calculator" by Kidbiz20 from Spreadsheets_and_Theorycrafting and then adjusting the number from the column "Resources to Level X" by the fact that we account for the XP from the bars that are need for the items. For instance, to go from level 40 to 55, you need 2,589 Mithril Bars if you craft items. If you account for the XP from the required bars then it's|
[math]x\times 50 + x\times35 = 2589\times 50[/math],
[math]x = 1523[/math].
Useful Items method
The idea of this method is to create the items that you will use to buy things or level other skills.
The table below provides notable examples where the bars can be used.
