Smithing is the counter-skill to Mining. Raising this skill allows players to be able to craft higher tiered metal equipment of various kinds, ranging from swords and armors to tools for harvesting. An Ingot Mold is required however to smelt Ore into these bars. After the Ores have been processed at a furnace/anvil, a Hammer is required to turn these bars into equipment. Also, there are many pieces of equipment that may require an additional second item (usually a Plank created through Carpentry of their respective tier).
There are currently eight tiers of bars that are craftable through smithing.
