Maple shieldbow detail.png

The maple shieldbow is a shieldbow available to free players. The maple shieldbow requires levels 30 Ranged and Defence to wield. Players can purchase this bow from some shops that carry Ranged equipment. The maple shieldbow is slower than the maple shortbow, but shoots from a longer distance.

Players can make a maple shieldbow through the Fletching skill at level 55. First, a player must cut an unstrung maple shieldbow from maple logs, granting 58.3 Fletching experience. Then, the player must string the unstrung maple shieldbow with a bowstring, granting 58.2 experience.

Like all shieldbows and unlike most other weapons, it incorporates a shield inseparably. Therefore, it provides armour and life point bonuses, and counts as a shield for Defence abilities, such as Rejuvenate. The attack range of the maple shieldbow is 8 spaces.

With level 45 Dungeoneering and 10,000 tokens, a shieldbow sight can be purchased and attached to a maple shieldbow to create a maple shieldbow (sighted), raising its bonuses to those of a level 45 weapon. This also increases the wielding requirements to 45 Ranged and Defence. Unlike its other higher level counterparts, the magic shieldbow (sighted) and the elder shieldbow (sighted), the maple shieldbow (sighted) is not a tier higher than its non-sighted version; its wielding requirements increase by 15 levels instead of 5, and consequently becomes stronger than a yew shieldbow.

It may be stored in a Medium type Hidey-holes (Treasure Trails) in the Mausoleum off the Morytania coast.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This bow was originally members only item. This was changed as F2P rangers were weaker than their mage or melee counterparts.
