osrs f2p smithing guide

Before you begin your Smithing journey, you’ll need a few essential items. Make sure you have a hammer, which can be purchased at any general store, and adequate ores. The most common ores for F2P Smithing are iron and steel, but you can also mine and smelt other ores for a broader experience.

The Anvil Basics

Your primary tool for training Smithing is the anvil. In F2P, the Lumbridge and Varrock anvils are the most accessible options. Lumbridge has the advantage of being close to a furnace for smelting bars, while Varrock provides easy access to a bank.

Smelting Ores

The first step in Smithing is smelting ores into bars. To do this, mine the ores you want to use and then head to a furnace. The closest furnace to a bank is in Al Kharid, but if you choose to use the Lumbridge furnace, you’ll need to use the nearby bank or the one in Draynor Village.

Training Methods

  1. Bronze and Iron Items (Levels 1-15): Start by making bronze bars into bronze items like daggers or swords. Once you reach level 15, switch to iron bars and create iron items for better experience rates.
  2. Steel Items (Levels 15-30): At level 15, you can start making steel bars. These are a significant step up in terms of experience per bar compared to iron. Craft items like steel nails or steel platebodies.
  3. Mithril Items (Levels 30-50): When you reach level 30, move on to mithril bars. Smithing mithril items, such as mithril platebodies or items for High Alchemy, is a great way to gain experience.
  4. Adamant and Rune Items (Levels 50+): Once you hit level 50, you can make adamant bars and, at level 99, rune bars. These bars offer substantial experience points and can be crafted into valuable items like platebodies, two-handed swords, or rune items.
