Maximum XP

Make items that use the most bars, usually Platebodies if they are unlocked. Stop on Rune Platebody (item).svg Rune Platebody and make it until Smithing Level 99.

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. Steel Bar (item).svg Steel Bars are skipped because it triples Mining (skill).svg Mining time, and you're likely to overmine something with such short timings. Adamantite Bar (item).svg Adamantite Bars are skipped because you will miss Mastery.svg Mastery bonuses for Mithril Bar (item).svg Mithril and Runite Bar (item).svg Runite otherwise. The numbers below are without XP bonuses, except for the Smithing Gloves (item).svg Smithing Gloves. With bonuses, the number of required bars is lower.

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 Bar (item).svg 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].

Level Item Quantity Required
Without Smithing Gloves (item).svg Gloves With Smithing Gloves (item).svg Gloves
1-10 Bronze Bar (item).svg Bronze Bar 78 49
10-30 Iron Bar (item).svg Iron Bar 437 274
30-40 Silver Bar (item).svg Silver Bar 1,591 995
40-70 Mithril Bar (item).svg Mithril Bar 8,241 5,151
70-99 Runite Bar (item).svg Runite Bar 98,375 61,485

Useful Items

The idea of this method is to create items that you will use to buy things or to level other skills. This is considerably slower for just Smithing (skill).svg Smithing, but should save time in the long run.

The table below provides notable examples where the bars can be used. For Summoning (skill).svg Summoning in particular, various tablet recipes make use of Dragonite Bar (item).svg Bars, Dragon Dagger (item).svg Daggers, Dragon Battleaxe (item).svg Battleaxes, and Dragon Shield (item).svg Shields.
