  • It is more profitable to sell Copper Bars than to transmute them into Iron Bars and sell the Iron Bars. However, it is even more profitable to craft them into Trap Bobbers to sell.


  • 1.0: Introduced.
  • 1.4: Can now be used in Tailoring. Can be requested in Fish Pond quests. Now used to make the Charcoal Kiln.
