Smelting Magic Items
How To: Smelt magic weapons & armor
Q: Can you smelt all magic weapons and armor?
A: Yes. All items can be smelted, both player crafted & magic dropped items.
Q: Can you get resource types other then iron when smelting?
A: Yes! If you have a magic item that has the resource type of Platinum for example. You can smelt it down and get 1 platinum ingot.
Q: When I try to smelt down a magic item I get the message, "You can’t melt that down into ingots."
A: This is the most important part that you need to understand when smelting magic items. In UO Roleplay we have multiple crafting tools. If you are using a crafting tool other then the tool that will let you craft that item you will not be able to smelt it.
For example: Lets say you find a very rare Damascus War Mace (#4). In order to smelt that item down and get 1 damascus ingot form it. You would need to use the tool called “Weapon Smith’s Tong’s.”
Another Example: Lets say this time you find a Thorium Halberd (default UO halbard). You would need to use the “Tongs” or another similar smelting tool that allows you to craft the default items.
Last Example: Lets say you find a Mithril Chainmail Leggings (new item from set two). In order to smelt this item you would need to use a “Mail Armor Smith’s Hammer” or a “Mail Armor Smith’s Tongs” or a similar item.
