Coal is only required from uh.. steel to mithril, if I can remember rightly. Addy to rune requires a new ore called luminite which will replace coal and then the new bars requires a secondary ore as well which I think is luminite for one or two up until the high end bars that require each other basically.

I'm working off a foggy memory of what I remember of the M&S beta, so don't quote me on that but I think that is how it goes now in terms of secondary ores for bars.

Coal is used for both Steel and Mithril respectively with Steel needing I believe either 1 or 2 coal to make it and Mithril taking 4 if I recall so I'll check when I get on the beta later in the day to confirm this.

Both Adamant and Rune each require 1 Luminite ore to make their respected bars as of now while in the beta.

Smelting bars is faster in the Beta as well as effect that when procs produces extra bars. The proc can also chain but it's quite rare for it to chain but of course it has a max limit to it. All in all, Smelting is oh so much better and faster. Le Infamous XP Waster... Part-time Demon Flash Mob Hunter; 8 titles found

A note, coal will still be used for the autoheater.

Source: https://runescape.wiki/w/User:Suity/MSRework#Autoheater

"The Coal bag, purchasable via Dungeoneeering tokens, has been reworked into the Autoheater since the Ore Box usurps its function. The pre-rework iteration of the Coal bag has been removed from the game and players' Dungeoneering tokens refunded (if a player is at the maximum capacity of tokens, they have instead been given an Autoheater). A new item called the Autoheater has been added to the store for 4,000 Dungeoneering tokens (the same price the Coal bag was).

The Autoheater only works when the player has it in their inventory when Smithing. It consumes one coal from the metal bank, inventory, or ore box every time your heat depletes to refill it for 1/3rd of your maximum heat allowing you to continue AFKing. This means that every coal would refill your heat 1% away from medium heat and so, instead of zero-heat smithing for 5 progress a strike, you AFK on low heat for 10 progress a strike. When used in conjunction with Superheat Form, the Autoheater will allow you to AFK on medium heat for 15 progress a strike.

The amount of Coal used per hour scales with maximum heat. Players can expect to use around 100-300 per hour based on Smithing level/maximum heat."



TL;DR autoheater lets you AFK without dropping into half smithing speed territory.

As of the update in the Beta (not sure when it was) Steel bars will now require just 1 coal to make and Mithril bars will require just 2.

As SteelWeaver has said the Autoheater will use coal only when you have it in your inventory while Smithing.

If your Max heat is 894 with your Firemaking and Smithing skills at 99 your heat will be brought up to 298 with the Autoheater when ever it's in your inventory.

You can boost your maximum heat to 900 for 1 minute before it drops to 297 for a minute by eating a Smoulderberry if you have access to the Arc and a high enough Farming level to crossbreed the berries.
