Amethyst arrow detail.png

Arrows are ammunition used by bows, weapons used in ranged combat. They can be created by members through Fletching, by fletching arrow shafts out of normal logs, and attaching feathers and metal arrowheads to them. Arrows can only be fired from bows that are strong enough to use them. Arrow stealing is quite common, and can be a nuisance to some rangers, although this can be mitigated by using Ava's devices.

Arrows can be bought from archery shops owned by NPCs in Varrock (Lowe's Archery Emporium), Rimmington (Brian's Archery Supplies), Catherby (Hickton's Archery Emporium), and the Ranging Guild (level 40 Ranged).

There is a 20% chance arrows will be lost when shot. If you wear the Ava's devices, the arrows you keep will be added to the ammunition slot automatically, instead of being dropped on the ground.
