Introduction

The art of Fletching allows the player to create ranged weapons and ammunition.


It is also a fun and quick way of making money!


As your Fletching skill improves, you will be able to shape a wider variety of items, from a multitude of wood types.



Arrows


When you make arrows you will always make 15 at a time. This applies to making arrow shafts all the way to putting the heads on the headless arrows.


Follow the steps below to make arrows:

  1. Use a knife on a normal log
  2. Add feathers to arrow shafts
  3. Add heads to headless arrows.

Arrow Repairing


In the members world arrows will end up breaking sooner or later and this is where your house from the construction skill comes in handy. If you have a repair bench in your house you can use the arrows on it and earn 8 experience for each arrow you fix.

Crossbows


Crossbows are a less common way of training Fletching, as it is rather complicated. These crossbows are used in conjunction with bolts.


Follow the steps below to make crossbows:

  1. Use a knife on a normal log
  2. Use a metal limb(of your choice) with crossbow stock. (You need a hammer to do so)
  3. Add a crossbow string to the crossbow
