OSRS Blast Furnace - Complete Guide

The Blast Furnace is a smithing activity found in Keldagrim which involves the players smelting bars in a big furnace. Players can start the Blast Furnace at any smithing level, however players will have to pay a 2500 coin fee every 10 minutes if the player is not 60 smithing or above. Whilst using the official Blast Furnace worlds, there is also an additional 72,000 gold per hour fee players have to pay. This however is not all taken at once and is taken overtime. In order to access Keldagrim, players will have to have at least started The Giant Dwarf quest in order to access the city. If going for xp, players can expect rates upward of 370k XP/HR and if players are trying to profit, they can expect profits of upwards of 1mil GP/HR.

Guide Quick-Links



Getting Started

The only requirement to use the blast furnace is starting "The Giant Dwarf" quest. You can smith at level 1 with bronze bars, however if you are lower than 60 smithing, players will have to pay an extra fee to use the furnace.


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



BF 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

Item

Description

Coins

Required to run the blast furnace. It costs 72,000 GP/HR to just run the furnace and in paying the workmen. If players are below 60 smithing, they will have to pay another 15,000 GP/HR on top of the 72,000 GP/HR making it a total of 87,000 GP/HR to run the Blast Furnace for an hour on the official worlds. On top of that you will need coins to buy the ores to smelt.

Ores

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.

Coal Bag

The Coal Bag is a reward that can be bought from Percy's Motherlode Mine shop. The Coal Bag costs 100 golden nuggets and allows the player to store up to 27 pieces of coal within it, effectively making coal based bars much more efficient.


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.

  4. Go to the conveyer belt and deposit the inventory of iron, then empty your coal bag and deposit the inventory of coal.
