New Runescape 3 1-99 Smithing Guide 2014 (EOC)

Updated on April 20, 2014

In this guide i will tell you the best,fastest and cheapest way to get 99 Smithing (smith) on the online game Runescape.

Smithing is known to be as one of the hardest skills to master on Runescape. The reason for which it is believed to be one of the hardest skills is that it can cost quite allot of money and it is also quite boring making platebodies. If you are looking for a fast and cheap skill-cape to get then Smithing is definitely not the best cape to be going for, instead you want to go for a cape such as cooking (this guide can be found on my profile). Now on with the Smithing guide :)

In order to carry out my method to 99 you will need to complete The Knights Sword Quest, this is a very easy quest and on completion you will be rewarded with 12,725xp in Smithing which will give you a Smithing level of 29.

Fastest Method to 99

Levels 1-29 = Complete The Knights Sword Quest

Levels 29-33 = Make Iron Bolts (unfinished)

Levels 33-48 = Make Iron Platebodies (90k xp P/H)

Levels 48-68 = Make Steel Platebodies (140k xp P/H)

Level 68-88 = Make Mithril Platebodies (170k xp P/H)

Levels 88-99 = Make Adamant Platebodies (210k xp P/H)


From levels 29-99 you will need to use an anvil so i recommend going to Varrock west bank and using the anvils directly south of it. Smith on the anvils and then when done run back to the bank to deposit the platebodies and take out your new bars, this technique should be used all the way to 99 Smithing.

Profits and Losses

By doing this method you are going to make a loss of around 150-200m depending on the current prices in the grand exchange. Below i will show you how to calculate this loss:

1)Find out the price of one bar of the particular metal that you wish to smith in the grand exchange.

2)Multiply that price by 5 (this is because it requires 5bars to make a platebody)

3)Find out the sale price of that particular platebody and then subtract it from the cost of 5bars. the final figure will be the amount you will lose per platebody that you make.

If you have any problems calculating prices leave a comment in the section below and i will get back to you within 48hours thanks! :)

      At today's current prices, levels 68-99 alone would cost 347M.

      Mithril: 75615 Bars x 1661gp = 125M

      Mithril Platebodies: 15123 Platebodies x 2881gp = 43M

      Cost For levels 68-88: 125M - 43M = 82M

      Adamant: 138379 Bars x 3941gp = 545M

      Adamant Platebodies: 27676 Platebodies x 9787 = 270M

      Cost For levels 88-99: 545M - 270M = 275M

      Total Cost for levels 68-99: 275M + 82M = 347M

      I calculated 1-99 with ge prices today, and 1-99 cost now 179M if u sell all platebodies what u need make. All bars cost today: 445,25M, when u sell all pl bodies u can get ~ 265M

      So 1-99 cost today 179,5M. I starting doing smithing tomorrow with my 400m cashpile :)

      Thanks for sharing that information with us, for those who do not have allot of money but really want 99 smithing I advise using the same method as @Anthorock has.

      Just to inform you, I decided to go the long way and do gold ores into bars and then into bracelets all the way lol. For 74-99, it will take me 200k gold ores, but only cost me 3.7m in the end when I sell bracelets to rogue. I also get 92 crafting that way. This technique will take me a lot more time though (more than 1 month). Just wanted to say what are the statistics for this technique

      I am fully aware that there is other cheaper methods to get 99 Smithing but as this guide states, it is the FASTEST way to 99 smithing, if you do not have the cash there are other alternative ways to get 99 smithing such as smelting gold ore with the goldsmith gauntlets.

      there's also the building right near the mining guild in falador. you can deposit ores there and take them out shorter time than going to the bank. I think only up to coal with f2p, there are tasks there you can do to improve you smithing, downstairs on f2p you can assemble mine cart tracks. it's boring and low xp but doesn't cost anything, so quicker leveling for lower level smith.

      Might want to consider gold ore to bars? If you have the goldsmith gauntlets this can be a much needed variety to smithing.
