XP bonus

I was using someone else's portable forge to smelt some mithril, and I was getting 33xp per bar smelted instead of 30. Is it possible it grants an XP bonus? 14:25, August 14, 2014 (UTC)

It does. I'm curious why that was never mentioned on the page... I added it though, thanks for pointing this out. MolMan 14:31, August 14, 2014 (UTC)

Gold Bars Smelted per hour

How many gold bars can one expect to smelt every hour at optimal speed on this forge? In other words, what is the exp per hour? Puretppc (talk) 04:16, October 10, 2014 (UTC)

Can you use protean bars on it? Djpailo (talk) 00:41, November 19, 2014 (UTC)

Bar saving drops items?

I was doing an Adamant Daggers Daily Challenge on one of these and whenever a bar was saved for me, it appeared to have stayed in my inventory while the dagger I smithed was dropped on the ground since my inventory was full.

I was awarded full experience for the action but I was unpleasantly surprised to see daggers on the ground and to have come up short when it came time to hand the Challenge in.

Am I misinterpreting how the bar saving works? Should 1-bar-item tasks done on these forges be done with inventory only half-filled? 22:57, July 31, 2015 (UTC)

With a chance of 10%, you should be safe with just 3 open spaces. MolMan 23:00, July 31, 2015 (UTC)

The description should be updated to reflect that saved bars are actually kept in the inventory and not sent to the bank. Whenever I save bars they remain in my inventory. WiggleCat (talk) 04:52, September 27, 2018 (UTC)


I believe it's supposed to be 1k rune plegs made, not 1k bars used. Otherwise, 1k bars = 13 forges (65 minutes) but 3,105 bars can be done in 60 minutes? Dsctatom (talk) 01:55, October 20, 2015 (UTC)

Can these be made?

Profitability section

I was regarding the profitability section on this page finding it to be quite far off. First of all rune bars can be smelted about twice as fast as the guide suggests quite easily too using a coal bag and presets (not including Varrock Body 2 or Rapid perk). This severely hampers the suggested profit in the guide and also nearly doubles the spending per bar smelted in the guide. In addition to this most players will be leeching forges in order to make more money. Maybe the section can be removed and from this page, revised and put in the money making guide?
