Bronze is an alloy made of tin ore and copper ore. Bronze is brown in colour. Bronze the weakest metal in RuneScape Classic. It is used mostly by new players. The usefulness of bronze is limited as Iron is stronger than bronze yet both share completely identical skill requirements needed to wield and use their respective armour, weapons, woodcutting axes and pickaxes.
Tin and copper rocks can be mined for tin ore and copper ore, which can be smelted into bronze bars. Bronze bars can be used to smith bronze weapons and armour. Bronze armour and weapons require level 1 in Defense and Attack respectively to wield, and similarly, level 1 Mining is needed to use a Bronze Pickaxe.
Forging a bronze bar
Bronze bars can be used for forging as part of the smithing skill. By using a bronze bar on an anvil with a hammer in the player's inventory, bronze armour and weapons can be created. Each bronze bar gives 12.5 smithing experience when consumed to make an item.
