Elder logs detail.png

Elder logs are obtainable from elder trees by players with level 90 Woodcutting and grant 425 experience per log cut.

With level 90 Firemaking a player may burn the elder logs for 434.3 experience. When lit, they burn for approximately 6 minutes. Using these logs on a bonfire will provide a 5% boost to a player's maximum health for 66 minutes.

Players may also utilise the logs through the Fletching skill. The abilities to make elder shortbows and elder shieldbows are unlocked at level 90 and 95 Fletching, respectively. Making an elder shortbow (u) from the logs will grant 101.2 experience for cutting the bow and 101.2 for stringing it for a total of 202.4 experience. Fletching an elder shieldbow (u) will provide 116.4 experience, as will stringing it, for a total of 232.8 experience. Elder logs can also be fletched into 45 arrow shafts, or 15 elder arrow shafts, granting 20 experience per log.

After completing the Tirannwn Elite Tasks, players can persuade Coeden once a day to give a random set of 28 elder, magic, or yew logs; or a random combination thereof.

Firemaking with an augmented crystal tinderbox or Pyro-matic will grant that item with 30 item XP per log, or 840 XP per inventory of 28.

Elder logs can be used to make enchanted notepaper at level 97 Invention.
