This is the regular Fletching guide, the guide for ironman / hardcore ironman players can be found here.
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.
To train Fletching, all you need is a knife, and some logs.
The knife is very easy to obtain. Just Teleport to Edgeville (Home) and buy one from the general store, located north west from the teleport spot, for 100gp.
As for the logs, there are three ways to obtain them.
- Chop them yourself using the Woodcutting Skill.
- Buy logs from other players.
- Completing the 'Make the Cut' task by reaching 99 Woodcutting. (Can only be done once)
