Iron bar detail

An iron bar is a bar of refined iron. It can be created through the Smithing skill at level 15 by using an iron ore on a furnace, granting 12.5 Smithing experience. When a player smelts iron ore, there is a 50% chance that the ore will be too impure and lacking in actual iron ore to yield an iron bar. When this happens, the iron ore disappears and the player is granted no Smithing experience. However, if a member wears a ring of forging while smelting iron ore, or casts Superheat Item on it, there is no chance that it will be too impure. An iron bar can be smithed on an anvil through the Smithing skill to create iron weapons and armour. When smithed, each bar grants 25 experience, with a maximum of 125 being given for the iron platebody.

16 Iron bars are required for quests (18 if you want your own blurite sword). Animal Magnetism requires 5, The Knight's Sword requires 2 (4 if you want your own blurite sword), Death Plateau requires 1, The Giant Dwarf requires 1, Troll Romance requires 1, Swan Song requires 5 and One Small Favour requires 1.


A single iron bar can be found west of the Graveyard of Shadows next to the bears in some trees in level 18 Wilderness.
