Fletching icon (detail).png

Fletching is a skill which allows the player to create various types of ranged weapons and their ammunition. The products of this skill are primarily used in the combat skill, Ranged. It also provides some of the most popular materials used for High Alchemy, which is a commonly used method for training the Magic skill.

At a higher Fletching level, the skill can be trained without losing any coins, although a decent amount of working capital is very useful. Money can usually be generated at higher Fletching levels. Alternatively, it can be extremely fast with more expensive methods.

Ogre arrows[edit | edit source]

Achey logs can be whittled into Ogre arrow shafts. Each achey log yields between two and six arrow shafts. Four feathers are needed for each shaft. The shafts may be tipped with wolf bone arrow heads 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.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • There was once an error with the chat filter that led to the word 'Fletching' being blocked when typed in chat for an entire day because it was too similar to the sexual term felching.
