What is Smithing?
Smithing is a production skill that allows players to smelt ores from mining into bars and then forge them immediately or at anvils.
It’s useful for making weapons, armour, accessories such as rings and amulets. Items you’ll need in combat quests are the perfect way of training Smithing while doing other things (Crafting).

Recently, the Elder Scrolls Online game developers have released a new update that has sparked controversy among players.
The update introduced pay-to-play Smithing training, which is designed to make it easier for players with in-game currency to train their skills. This change has been met with mixed reviews and opinions on social media channels by gamers.
Some say this takes away from the quality of gameplay, whereas others are more supportive of the change because they can’t afford to spend too much time playing due to life commitments like work or school.
Experiences relating to Smithing
If players need to fix struts for the Smithing experience, they can hop between worlds until their desired world appears. A hammer is conveniently near the machine, and players get 1.5 times their level in XP when using it.
It’s not difficult at all with such high rates of exp, so even ironmen could give this method a try if there are enough machines nearby where they want to train smithing ability. Hop to another world where the strut needs repairing.
Experience rates vary depending on efficiency and skill level, but a player can gain between 12,000 experience per hour at level 10 Smithing.
At the Blast Furnace, players can smelt bars from various ores. It is recommended to use Ice Gloves and Coal bags for higher experience per hour, which usually results in a decent profit too. Optimal bar patterns are found on their respective pages of this website, so you know what kind of ore combination will give the best output.
The Smithing of darts
To make money while smithing darts, consider the following. The experience per hour is relatively low (128xp/hr), but it requires little effort and can be done in bulk, leading to an overall decent hourly profit of 120K coins (~$2).
Smithing various armour pieces at an anvil offers the fastest experience outside of the Blast Furnace, and it requires a fairly low amount of effort.
Players should smith platebodies that they can from steel plates to mithril and adamant as these offer fast experience rates with lower costs than iron or less expensive materials.
Smithing mithril’s into either legplates or skirts is a slightly slower but cheaper alternative to steel for levels 66-68 which will still provide good XP/hr depending on Grand Exchange prices.
