Fletching level up (50-99)
The sound that plays after gaining a Fletching level.

Fletching is an artisan skill that involves the making of bows and arrows. The products of this skill are primarily used in the Ranged skill. It also provides material with relatively high alchemy prices, so its products are often used to train Magic as well.

At higher Fletching levels, the skill can be trained without losing any coins, although a decent amount of working capital is very useful.

A player uses the Fletching skill to carve a log.

The current minimum requirement to be ranked (at approximately rank 954,654) on the HiScores for Fletching is level 15. As of 27 January 2023, there are 247,748 current members that have achieved level 99 in Fletching. There are 13,935 current members that have achieved level 120 in Fletching.

Materials used[edit | edit source]

Fletching requires various items, depending on what a player wishes to create. These items are relatively universal, with slight differences based on exactly what is made. All sorts of fletching require logs, a knife, and other various supplies, which can be found below.

It gives a 5% chance of getting double arrow shafts from fletching logs, and it gives a 5% chance of giving a strung bow instead of an unstrung bow when fletching unstrung bows. The charges will be used up after 28 uses (with double efficiency when used in Prifddinas, up to 56 uses), at which point it will revert into a crystal tool seed again and must be recreated. Not sold

It can be spun into a bowstring on a spinning wheel. There is a spinning wheel on the ground floor[UK]1st floor[US] of the house north of the churchyard. Spinning flax gains 15 Crafting experience. There is also one on Neitiznot, which is the closest one to a bank. Another spinning wheel can also be found on the ground floor[UK]1st floor[US] of Lumbridge Castle, which is just downstairs from a bank. Flax plants give multiple flax per plant but do not last forever. They require time to "grow" or spawn again. Flax is a common way of making money. Flax can be picked and sold (98 coins each), or they can be spun into bowstrings to sell for more.

Making the items[edit | edit source]

Bows[edit | edit source]

A player stringing a shieldbow (u)

To fletch bows, players must use a knife on a log to whittle a shortbow or shieldbow of that wood. Then, either a piece of bowstring or fungal bowstring must be attached to the unstrung bow. Bows, especially yew shieldbows and magic shieldbows, are frequently high alched as a means of income or Magic experience. Yew shieldbows are often made by many fletchers because of their high profit and experience.

A general rule of thumb for fletchers is to wait until you hear 3 "plucks" of the log being strung to know when you are done. This is an especially helpful tip for those who tend to be multitasking on other things when fletching. The plucking noise only applies to unstrung bows being strung though. Generally, however, each 5 logs that are fletched result in one plucking sound. Since 14 is the number most commonly used for fletching (14 of one type of log, 14 bowstrings), around 3 plucks are needed. Of course, if you are just cutting the logs with your knife then all you need to do is wait until you do not hear any more animation of the cutting to check back on your character. You can make 5000 unstrung bows in 3.13 hours.

Arrows[edit | edit source]

To fletch regular arrows, use a knife on logs to create arrow shafts. Each regular log yields 15 arrow shafts, and higher level logs yield more. Add feathers and arrowheads.

Achey logs can be whittled into ogre arrow shafts. Each achey log yields between 2 and 6 arrow shafts. Four feathers are needed for each shaft. The shafts may be tipped with wolf bone arrowheads or with nails. Ogre shafts tipped with nails are called "brutals" and are especially useful for killing Zogres. Any type of metal may be used for the nails.

The following table shows experience per item made, although a batch of items are always made at a time.

Bolts[edit | edit source]

Bolts are made by using a metal bar at an anvil while you have a hammer in your inventory. This grants Smithing experience. The bolts created in this process are unfinished and still require fletching (they need feathers). This part provides the Fletching experience. Bolts are also the fastest way to acquire experience, and you will not lose much money. It is also great combined with Smithing
