Other information

Smelting allows a character to process raw ore into purer bars of the base metal or combine other smelted metals into an alloy such as Bronze. Requires a forge.

To smelt metals you must be near a forge with the needed ore in your bags, open your Spellbook, click the General tab, and click the Spell fire flameblades.png Smelting button.

This is the primary sub-skill of the Mining profession which now grants Toughness (mining).
