The Magic shieldbow is the strongest shieldbow that can be made. It can use arrows up to rune. The magic shieldbow requires a Defence level of 50 and Ranged level of 50 or higher to wield. Despite being only a level 50 weapon, even players with higher levels benefit from using this strong weapon due to its properties. It has the same stats and uses as the Magic composite bow.
Members can make a magic shieldbow through the Fletching skill at level 85. First, a player has to cut an unstrung magic shieldbow from magic logs, granting 91.5 Fletching experience. Then, the player must string the unstrung magic shieldbow with a bow string, granting a further 91.5 experience.
Like all shieldbows and unlike most other weapons, it incorporates a shield inseparably despite nothing that remotely resembles a shield is involved in its creation. Therefore, it provides armour and life point bonuses, and counts as a shield for Defence abilities, such as Rejuvenate. The attack range of the magic shieldbow is 8 spaces.
After the Evolution of Combat, the magic shieldbow is available for free players. Previously, a sighted magic shieldbow was a members object. It could not be equipped on a free-to-play world, and the only way to remove the sight is to log into a members world. One week later it was patched, and both members and free players can attach and detach it.

Magic shieldbows used to be high alched quite often for a profit. However, this led to them no longer being profitable in terms of gold or experience, seeing as many others things are far more cost efficient to train on.
