Information[edit | edit source]
A Knife can be bought at Logava Gricoller's Cooking Supplies, or at the Warrens General Store, which requires at least partial completion of The Queen of Thieves to access. Alternatively, there is a free Knife spawn near Alry the Angler at the centre of Lake Molch, easily accessed by the Boaty west of Shayzien.
For making Bow strings, the best place to pick Flax is around Land's End, as the Bank deposit box in Land's End makes it easy easy to stock up a large amount to spin later. Bow strings can then be spun on the Spinning wheel in Watson's house, using the bank in the nearby Hosidius Kitchen. Feather packs can be bought at the Warrens Fish Monger in The Warrens, which requires at least partial completion of The Queen of Thieves to access.
Training[edit | edit source]
1+ : Headless arrows[edit | edit source]
Each set of 15 Arrow shafts gives 25 Fletching experience when made, and attaching Feathers to them to make Headless arrows gives 5 Fletching experience each. Headless arrows are a good way to train early Fletching levels, as one of the best Fletching training methods at higher levels is creating Broad arrows. It would take making a little over 20,000 Headless arrows to reach level 53 Fletching, if the player did no other Fletching training. Depending on how the player is training Smithing, they may have unfinished bolts or arrowheads to use in early Fletching training as well.
1+ : Wintertodt[edit | edit source]
While training Firemaking at the Wintertodt, using a Knife on a Bruma root turns it into Bruma kindling, and gives Fletching experience equal to three times the player's Fletching level. Because the amount of Fletching experience the player earns is based on their level, it is recommended to do at least a little bit of Fletching training before fighting the Wintertodt a bunch.
52+ : Broad arrows[edit | edit source]
Players who have unlocked the Broader Fletching perk with 300 Slayer reward points can buy Broad arrowheads in packs from Konar quo Maten, and attach them to Headless arrows to make Broad arrows. Broad arrows are in between Mithril arrows and Adamant arrows in strength, but the comparative ease of getting Broad arrowheads compared to Mithril arrowtips or Adamant arrowtips makes this a much easier way to train Fletching and produce good ammunition for Ranged training. Making a Broad arrow gives 50 Fletching experience, not counting any experience gained while making Headless arrows.
55+ : Broad bolts[edit | edit source]
Much like Broad arrows, Broad bolts are a solid general-purpose Ranged ammunition, and are easy enough to get in bulk by buying Unfinished broad bolt packs from Konar quo Maten. Attaching Feathers to a Unfinished broad bolts gives 15 Fletching experience each. This is significantly less experience for the cost when compared to Broad arrows, but Broad bolts only require Feathers to finish, making them a bit easier to make. The choice of which Broad ammunition to make comes down to what ammunition the player needs more of, and how much they are willing to spend on Fletching training.
70+ : Yew longbows[edit | edit source]
One low-intensity method to train Woodcutting and Fletching together is to chop Yew trees and fletch the Yew logs into Yew longbows. The unfinished bows can be strung with Bow strings, which the player may have anyways from low-level Crafting training. Fletching a Yew longbow (u) gives 375 Fletching experience, and attaching a Bow string gives 375 more Fletching experience, for a total of 750. Yew longbows can be sold or alched for a decent amount of coins, making this a good way to gain some money while training in a relaxed way.
85+ : Magic longbows[edit | edit source]
Similar to making Yew longbows, making Magic longbows is a low-intensity method to train both Woodcutting and Fletching. Fletching a Magic longbow (u) gives 457.5 Fletching experience, and attaching a Bow string to it gives another 457.5 Fletching experience, for a total of 915. Magic longbows sell or alch for a good amount of coins, making this training method potentially quite profitable.
