I just heard (July 4) from two rangers in game that the mage shortbow is slower since the update. They said it is as slow as the mage longbow used to be (which they said is now slower too). Can anyone confirm this? I couldn't find anything on the RS forums about this. Horsehead 03:49, 4 July 2008 (UTC)

"Also popular for lighting fires in remote places." - is this vandalism? How does a Magic Shortbow light a fire in a remote place?
- "With the release of barbarian skills", which means you can light fires with a bow.
About the 3 shot picture[edit source]
That picture is NOT a fake. It has no lag (some people have said) and has no effects in it. It is a orginal. I did it by perfect timing as I found out it could hit 3 times at once in my slayer task. Thanks. Mo 55 55 Talk|Sign 10:40, 24 May 2009 (UTC)
Magic shortbow combat tactics.[edit source]
I recently discovered a new gear combo with the mage short.
Snakeskin boots or better.
Amulet of ranging or amulet of fury.
D'hide Vambraces, green, blue, red, black.
Rune arrows or God arrows.
85+ Range, 85 being minimum.
Potions are optional but recomended.
Add vengence for an extra bite.
Its a range tank combo. I can still deal consaiderable range damage well being highly resistant to both range and melee attack in return. I have killed people in Barbarian gear, Bandos, and Armadyl. Barrows is harder but possible. Also, Korasis' or Dragon claws, SGS or AGS are very helpful. Those specials are much better then the mage bow spec.
