Fletching Guide
The Fletcher's Guide


To start training Fletching, use the ::skill command, it will teleport you to the skilling area.

When you reach the Skilling area, trade the Fairy Shopkeeper and buy a Knife for 6 coins. The Knife will be used to fletch logs.
Items to be purchased are shown in the picture below:




To the fletching!

Now there are two ways to train fletching. There is "the fast, but hard way" and "the slow, but easy way". Both ways will be mentioned below.


"The Fast, But Hard Way":

This way requires you to have at least 90 Smithing.
This way requires you to have at least 75 Fletching.
If you choose this way of fletching, you will be making Rune Arrows, which means you need to obtain 3 different items: Rune Arrowheads, Arrow shafts and Feathers

The Arrowheads:
The arrowheads needs 90 Smithing to be smithed. You will get 15x Rune Arrowheads per Runite bar.
Rune Arrowheads are shown below:


Making the arrowheads gives you a total of 2.550(5.100) Smithing xp per Runite bar.



The Arrow shafts:
You also need to get arrow shafts. Arrow shafts are made by fletching Logs. The requirements for chopping and fletching logs are 1 Woodcutting.
Use your knife on Logs and choose the Arrow shafts-option, rightclick and choose the Make-X option to fletch all your logs, that are in your inventory, into arrow shafts. You will get 15x Arrow shafts per Logs.


Making arrow shafts gives you a total of 100(200) Fletching xp per Log.


The Feathers:
You can get these either by killing Chickens at the Lumbridge farms or buy them at home from the General Store. I suggest you chose the second option as it will be the fastest.
Teleport to home and run towards shops or use the ::shops command. Trade the NPC marked below and purchase Feathers, the feathers will cost you 2 coins each.



The Final Steps:
The final steps are simple. All you have to do is to use the Feathers on the Arrow shafts to make Headless Arrows, doing this will give you a total of 1.500(3.000)Fletching xp.
Do this over and over to make all your feathers and arrow shafts into headless arrows.
When you are done, use the Rune arrowheads on the headless arrows, this will give you 21.000(42.000) Fletching xp per 15x headless arrows.

You get a total of 2550(6.100) Smithing xp and 22.600(45.200) Fletching xp per 15x Rune Arrows you make.
From 75-99 fletching(11.824.010 xp) you will have to make 7.860(3.930) Rune Arrows.
524(262) Runite bars/ores and 524(262) Logs is needed to complete that.
