Making Bows

First you need to acquire some wood. There is several types of trees that you can cut, depending on your lvl of wood cutting. Next use knife on logs to cut them into either shortbow or a longbow. To string a bow you need to find flax plant.This can be found behind the bee hives in Camelot. Then you need to spin flax on a spinning wheel to make bow string. Finally add the string to the bow to complete it. Ordinary trees can be found all over Runescape but rarer trees can only be found in Camelot.

Note: making bow strings gives 15 exp in crafting per string.

  • The rarer types of bow, need higher wood cutting levels and fletching levels to make.

    Making Arrows

    To make an arrow, first cut some ordinary logs and use knife to cut them into shafts. Add feathers and then arrow head to finish arrow. Arrow heads can either be purchased from member's archery store, or smithed at anvil. Feathers can either be brought from fishing shop in Port Port Sarim or kill chickens to get feathers.

    The better the arrow, the more it will inflict damage. You will require a better bow to fire better arrows.
