I've smelted quite a lot of ore (iron, silver, gold, etc.) into respective bars but it doesn't seem to get my smithing skill increase.
Is this a bug or does only making/improving objects increase this skill?



Using a Smelter does not increase your skill, similar to a Tanning Rack.

Only actually making something using the Forge or improving things using the Grindstone or Workbench will give you Smithing experience.


No, but if you look for a way to level Smithing get a lot of leather (pretty cheap). and make leather glove!

It should give EXP in Smithing just like dragon armor do!
