Getting There

These are the fastest ways to get to the Blast Furnace.

  1. Minigame teleport (requires the player to at least have started "The Giant Dwarf" quest)

  2. Taking a minecart to Keldagrim. The easiest one is accessible on the west side of the Grand Exchange (requires the player to at least have started "The Giant Dwarf" quest)

  3. Players can use the fairy ring DKS and run west to the cave entrance where players start "The Giant Dwarf" quest. This is the slowest route to get to Keldagrim and is not recommended

Blast Furnace Worlds

You should use the official worlds whenever training smithing at the Blast Furnace. This is because there are NPC workers there running all of the machines required in order for the Blast Furnace to function, thereby increasing your XP rates significantly.

There are 14 blast furnace worlds, with 3 for each region, except for 2 for Australia.

Items & Gear


Ores are required in order to smelt bars at the Blast Furnace. Depending on what type of bar you are trying to make, you will need the specific ores for it. Any bar that takes coal to make has its coal price halved whilst smelting it at the Blast Furnace.

Cooling Item

The best items for cooling bars, in order, are:1. Ice Gloves (These allow you to left click the bars right away and are highly recommended)2. Bucket of Water (There is a water source near the bank players can refill their bucket at)

Goldsmith Gauntlets

Goldsmith Gauntlets are a reward which are obtained after completing the Family Feud quest and taking the Steel Gauntlets to Avan in the Al Kharid mine. Goldsmith Gauntlets double the xp you get from smithing gold and are a must have if wanting to smelt gold at the Blast Furnace.

Graceful Set

The Graceful set significantly reduces your weight which means you are using less run energy. Ores and bars are heavy so this is highly recommended to have.

Getting Started
  1. Make your way to the blast furnace. The fastest method is by using the minigame teleport or the minecart system in the grand exchange.

  2. Deposit money into the coffer. It costs 72,000 GP/HR to use at 60 smithing or above, or 87,000 GP/HR to use at below 60 smithing.

Runite Bars Walkthrough
  1. Have goldsmith gauntlets equipped and your ice gloves and a stamina potion in your inventory.

  2. Withdraw an inventory of gold ore.

  3. Run to the conveyer belt and deposit your ores.

  4. IMPORTANT: WAIT FOR THE XP DROP WITH YOUR GOLDSMITH GAUNTLETS ON. (If you take them off too early, you will only get half of the XP from the gold bars) After you see the XP drop you can switch to your Ice Gloves and pick up the ores.

  5. Bank your bars and withdraw a new inventory. Use stamina potions when needed if available to you.
