OSRS Fletching Guide From Level 1 to 99 | RuneScape Training

May 1, 2020, 17:27

Ever wanted to save on food when fighting but didn’t figure out how to do it? Annoyed by those pesky mages who keep reducing your Hitpoints with what sometimes appears to be a colorful water balloon? Or maybe you need to prepare for a long siege?

We have a solution to all these unpleasant situations – Fletching

Sure, to avoid damage or rid the world of arrogant old men with silly hats you need to use Ranged combat. But in any battle preparation is key. And today preparation starts with Fletching which allows you to make ranged weapons and projectiles and ensures the sound defeat of cloth-wearing weirdos. This OSRS fletching guide is dedicated for those RuneScape players looking for some assistance in improving their fletching skills.

Basics of OSRS Fletching

Fletching, like any other skill, requires dedication if you aim to obtain level 99 Fletching skillcape. Unlike many skills, however, it can be trained extremely fast. Sure, you need to have a good amount of OSRS gold set aside for that, but the result is well worth it. Besides, you can make money with Fletching as well, while training it or once you hit that sweet level 99 and then make up for training costs.

Another strong argument to train Fletching is that it can be done while being busy with other activities. Isn’t it sometimes boring to run from place to place in Gielinor? If you are a scrooge who skimps on teleport tabs and prefers the good old-fashioned method of travel, which is running or walking, then we have good news for you – Fletching can be trained while taking in the sights of Gielinor. Making Darts requires only your clicks and does not stop your character from doing other activities. Making bolts, arrows and javelins is a little bit different because there is a dialog screen that pops up regularly and it can sometimes delay other actions. As you can see, there is no need to stand in one place for hours and hours doing the same thing over and over again. Instead, when training Fletching you can engage in other activities as well and be extremely efficient.

Fast OSRS Fletching Training For Every Level

We've compiled everything you need to know to level up your fletching skills for each level in OSRS.

Level 1-25 Fletching

The fastest way that will skyrocket your Fletching experience is to make Headless arrows. Headless arrows are made by combining Arrow shafts with Feathers at a ratio of 1:1.

This process is extremely click-intensive, but it will help you level up Fletching fast. You can sell the Headless arrows you make but don’t expect to end up sitting on a pile of cash.

Making Bronze darts from Fletching level 10 to 22 and then switching to making Iron darts from Fletching level 22 to 35 or 37 is also a viable option.

Level 25-35 Fletching

From level 25 Fletching you are going to make Oak longbows. To do that you need unfinished Oak longbows and the same amount of strings. This method is a bit more relaxing as it’s semi-AFK and also cheap.

Level 35-37 Fletching

To make your way through these two levels faster, you can opt to make Willow longbows. If you have an abundance of unfinished Oak longbows, you can stick to making them until level 37 Fletching, but you will be gaining XP at a slower pace.

Level 37-52 Fletching

Now we’re really crushing it. At level 37 Fletching you can start making Steel darts. Steel dart requires one of each: Steel dart tip and Feather. This method is both extremely expensive and click-intensive. The upside is that it can be done while being busy with other activities, thus making you the paragon of efficiency.

Level 52-67 Fletching

At level 52 Fletching you can make darts from the legendary Mithril. One Mithril dart requires one Mithril dart tip and one Feather. Fletching Mithril darts can also become your way of reaching level 99 Fletching since it has a decent XP to GP ratio. You will gain XP slower but will save some precious coins.

Level 67-81 Fletching

Advance to making Adamant darts. As with the previous case, you can continue on to level 99 Fletching with this method.

Level 81-95 Fletching

If the previous two methods don’t seem to satisfy your hunger for Fletching XP then we hope this will. At level 81 Fletching you can craft Rune darts. Due to the expensive nature of Runite, there’s no need to tell that this will cost a fortune.

Level 95-99 Fletching

Well, well, well. You must be a very wealthy individual to have gotten up to this stage of the guide. Dragon darts. Make them. Don’t stop until you reach level 99 Fletching.

Cheap Fletching Training Guide

The following Fletching leveling methods are aimed at those who wish to save some money in-between of doing fast leveling methods or are simply not wealthy enough.

Level 1-35 Fletching

You should start by making Headless arrows. If you think you‘re experiencing deja vu, you are not. This was already mentioned before.

Level 35-70 Fletching

From level 35 Fletching an economically-minded player has a variety of choices. You can make Willow shortbows at level 35 Fletching and upgrade to Willow longbows at level 40 Fletching.

Then you can start making Maple shortbows at level 50 Fletching up to level 55 Fletching at which point you should upgrade to making Maple longbows. At level 65 Fletching you can start making Yew shortbows up to level 70 Fletching.

Alternatively, you can choose to make Steel arrows from level 30 or 35 Fletching to level 70 Fletching or upgrade to making Broad bolts at level 55 Fletching and make them until level 70 Fletching.

Level 70-99 Fletching

Once you reach level 70 Fletching you can make Yew longbows and upgrade to Magic shortbows at level 80 Fletching and then Magic longbows at level 85 Fletching and continue on until you can acquire the Fletching skillcape.         

At level 92 Fletching you unlock two alternative leveling routes: making Dragon javelins and Redwood shields. Both methods are cheap yet have low Fletching XP yields. However, choosing to make Redwood shields can actually be profitable since the high alchemy value is usually higher than the cost of materials.

Remember that making unfinished bows and preparing other materials yourself can save you money, but it will inevitably take up more time. When deciding which method is the best for you and whether to make an item from scratch yourself make sure to check the prices of those items on the Grand Exchange. Sometimes it might not be worthwhile to make items from scratch if someone puts a lot of cheap stuff on the GE.

OSRS Money Making By Fletching

There are a handful of different ways you can make more OSRS gold by using your fletching skills, and we've identified some fo them in this section.

Gemstone bolts

Making gemstone tipped bolts is a viable way of making money in OSRS, especially at higher levels.

Rune Crossbows

At level 69 Fletching you can make Rune crossbows. Unlike with most other methods, this one will usually require you to make a Rune crossbow from scratch unless it is cheaper not to do so. While it sounds counter-intuitive, people often tend to put items on the GE at such prices that buying a completed or partially completed item is cheaper than raw materials themselves.

Dragon Bolts

At level 84 Fletching you unlock the ability to add gemstone tips to Dragon bolts. This method can be profitable, however, due to the possibility of low supply you should check the GE first.

Final Thoughts About OSRS Fletching

Overall, Fletching is a skill that can be trained extremely fast compared to other skills. That might be the reason why it is not the best of skills when considering its money-making potential.

Nonetheless, it is still worth training, especially if you have the capital for fast training methods that are expensive. Besides, who doesn’t like to pierce a dragon’s heart with an arrow they made themselves?
