Adamantite rocks are found as natural deposits and can be mined for adamantite ore, which can be smelted into adamantite bars. Adamantite bars can be used to forge with adamantite smithing various types of weapons and armour. These generally require 30 attack or defense to use respectively. Using an adamantite pickaxe requires level 31 mining. Equipment of this type is notable because the next best metal has a much higher price, thus adamantite is often used over runite by players on a budget.
Players have sometimes used addy pures for PKing. These characters have a defense level between 30 and 39 (enough to equip adamantite but not runite), and usually have low magic and prayer. An addy 2her has between 30 and 39 attack, uses a adamantite 2-handed sword, and may have a low defense level.
Forging adamantite bars
Adamantite bars can be used for forging as part of the Smithing skill. By using an adamantite bar on an anvil with a hammer in the player's inventory, adamantite armour and weapons can be created. Each adamantite bar gives 62.5 smithing experience when consumed to make an item.
