Hey guys,

Just wondering what is the best thing to smith in F2P to get some money back? Like what actually sells on the G.E.?

At the moment i'm smelting steel, which generates good profit, but I'm looking to get some xp quickly so I don't care about losses, I just wondered what was the least expensive way of doing it? (No smelting)

Cheers guys :)

Did you even read his post? He says he doesn't wanna smelt steel anymore. :P I can't say I know what's the best thing to try and smith, but platebodies would be very fast, and I'm pretty sure they alch for a decent amount.

He said no smelting... *rolls eyes*

Well tbh,
I raised most of my smithing in F2P too. I also gained most of my XP with smelting bars.
The only difference is that I mined all my ores myself, which is the reason why my mining is higher than my smithing I guess.
If I were you I'd try that too. Makes it 100% profit and you raise two skills at a time...
If not, I'd just make mithril platebodies and sell those on GE. Many alchers buy em, same with steel bodies.

You could try Superheating(technically it's not smelting, so stfu). It's a lot faster, usually around 15-20k experience an hour using Steel Bars, it profits, but very minuscule. It also gives great mage experience, though I don't know about the exp/hour.

Thank you, the xp rates from this are much much better than just smelting :)

The bonus of Mage xp is also good :)

Whilst the profits are gone, the speed of it outweighs that.

Thanks guys

Pro tip: you can superheat while smelting for faster xp+more profit.

DK drops (solo/LS): 66 hatchets, 14 archer rings, 13 berserker rings, 17 warrior rings, 12 seerculls, 13 mud staves, 7 seers rings

QBD drops: 1 kite, 2 visages, 4 dragonbone kits, 3 effigies, lots of crossbow parts

CR vs. CLS threads always turn into discussions about penis size.
...
It's not called a Compensation Longsword for nothing.

I've sent a 12k combat mission to have Aiel assassinated (poor bastard isn't even Pincers-tier difficulty).

Canviently using my superheat spreadsheet ;) (in siggy) you can switch between steel and mith, when ever one or the other becomes profitable

the rest of the guys who posted pretty much have it, but here is a note.

buying silver ore and smelting it will give you pretty good xp and you can sell it back to the GE to break even.
This is pretty good xp if you ask me. Just go to Al Kharid and smelt smelt smelt.
