Black (metal): Misc

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape

Black is a metal stronger than steel, but weaker than mithril. It is also equal in power to white and is available to free-to-play players. Black, like Dragon and White, cannot be smithed. This makes it more valuable, sometimes, than mithril or even adamant weapons and armour. Black weapons and armour can only be obtained by being bought from stores or other players, picked up from monster drops or respawn points, or (as a member) received from Treasure Trails. As its name suggests, it is black in appearance. It is considered to be rarer than mithril and sometimes adamant, and when players are level 20-30, they often keep wielding it until they can use rune items. Black metal armour and weapons are used by the Black Knights.


  • It is possible that Black items are Steel items with a high Carbon content, giving it more strength and blackening it.
  • Black metal is a coloured form of Steel made by different forging techniques which slightly increases the defensive capability.
  • It is also possible that black metal is a completely different sort of metal which does not relate to steel or any other real-world metal, much like Runite or Adamant.
