This profession is very simple in nature but essential for many professions such as Weaponsmithing, Armoring and Engineering. With the help of Smelting, ores are processed into different types of ingots. In order to process the ores, you must go to a Smelter in the settlement.

For some materials there are two ways to make them, which is why they are listed twice in the recipes overview in the game. Different materials are used, one lower level and one higher level. So you have a choice and can craft with the materials that are available to you in larger quantities.

Procurement of raw materials
In order to upgrade your profession from 1-200, you need a lot of ores. With the profession “Mining” you can acquire these materials yourself. The expansion of “Mining” 1-200 is very time-consuming, but you get a large amount of ores.
You can find all Ore Nodes on NewWorld Map
With these materials you can ideally expand your Smelting.
Theoretically, you can also buy all materials at the trading post, but you will notice that especially platinum ore and orichalcum will be in great demand and expensive.

How does the skill system work?
For each item you craft you get experience. For items that are available from Skill Level 0, you’ll get significantly fewer experience points compared to an item that is unlocked at Level 150. Theoretically you can increase your Skill Level with every item. But beware: The cheapest material is not always the cheapest solution!
Level 1-50: Charcoal, Iron Ignot, Silver Ingot | Smelter Tier Rang 2
In contrast to the other refining professions, you can use different resources for leveling in smelting from level 0. The cheapest option is probably Wood for Charcoal. You only get a few experience points, but wood is much easier to get than Iron Ore.
Level 51-100: Steel Ingot, Gold Ingot | Smelter Tier 3
As soon as you reach level 50 you can produce Steel Ingots for the first time. For this you need 3 Steel Ingots, 2 Charcoal and Sandflux, Shelldust Flux or Obsidian Flux which you can find in chests in the World or produce yourself via your Smelting from level 50.
Since the amount of Iron Ingots and Coal from step 1-50 will not be enough for you, you will still have to produce a lot of Iron Ingots at 51-100. You will advance more slowly, but you will still get experience points.
The experience points increase per level a little bit more.
In every city, the Smelter is standard at Tier 2, so if you want to build Steel Ingots, you have to do it in a city that has this building upgraded to at least Tier 3.
Level 101-150: Starmetal Ingot, Platin Ingot | Smelter Tier 4
From level 100 you can already produce the first Starmetal Ingots and Platinum Ingots. However, Starmetal Ore and Platinum Ore are more difficult to obtain, which is why the prices at the trading post are very high. With a mining level of 100 you can mine your own Starmetal.
Once again you need Flux (Sand Flux, Shelldust Flux or Obsidian Flux) that you can craft yourself or gather from crates and chests in the world.
Level 151-200: Orichalcum Ingot | Smelter Tier 5
Then, once you are at a level of 150, you can craft Orichalcum Ingots. For this you need Orichalcum Ore and Starmetal Ingots. Orichalcum Ore is the rarest ore which you can find in high level areas in the north of the map. With a mining level of 150 you can mine your own Orichalcum Ore.
NewWorld Map can show you all available Orichalcum Nodes.
Once again you need Flux (Sand Flux, Shelldust Flux or Obsidian Flux) that you can craft yourself or gather from crated and chests in the world.
Level 200: Asmodeum | Smelter Tier 5
From a level of 200 you can create epic ingots, which are needed for very valuable armor and tools. Besides Orichalcum Ingots you need Tolvium and Cinnabar which you get very rarely for skinning animals.
Once again you need Charcoal and Obsidian Flux, that you can craft yourself or gather from crated and chests in the world.
