Skill Type Crafting

The art of bowcraft and fletching allows bowyers to rely on the forests of Britannia for their weaponry. One who truly lives off the land, a bowyer may carve his bows and arrows from the very trees around him, thus avoiding the need to ever venture to town.

The well-trained fletcher can create arrows and bows for use by archers, using boards and feathers as resources. Since the fletcher typically works with boards, the Carpentry and Lumberjacking skills complement Fletching very well.

Usage[edit | edit source]

Use a Fletching Knife to begin creating fletching items.

Notes[edit | edit source]

Fletching is currently undergoing a major overhaul. At this time, it's possible to create 3 types of bows (Bow, Heavy Bow, Siege Bow) in 7 types of wood. Bows require 0 fletching, Siege Bows 20 fletching and Heavy Bows 50 fletching. The table below is old out of date data that will be edited once the fletching changes arrive.

Damage Bonus[edit | edit source]

The Fletching skill provides a damage bonus in PvE (against monsters only) when wielding archery weapons.

The damage bonus is calculated using the following formulas:

  • Fletching Skill < 100.0

FletchingDamageBonus = FletchingSkillLevel / 5

  • Fletching Skill = 100.0

FletchingDamageBonus = (FletchingSkillLevel / 5) + 10

This means it provides a scaling 20% damage bonus in PvE when using archery weapons. At GM Fletching, this bonus becomes an additional 10% bonus (a total bonus of 30%).

Leveling[edit | edit source]

The cheapest and easiest method to leveling fletching is by refining raw lumber into boards. Depending on how much you are willing to waste will determine for how long you train on each wood type, as the higher skill the less failures will occur.

Level Range Item
0-30 Skill Book
30-50 Oak Boards
50-70 Ash Boards
70-80/85 Yew Boards
