Shieldbow detail

The Shieldbow is the weakest shieldbow in RuneScape. Players can obtain this bow for free from Lowe's Archery Emporium in Varrock.

Members can make a shieldbow through the Fletching skill at level 10. First, a player must cut an unstrung shieldbow from logs, granting 10 Fletching experience. Then, the player must string the unstrung shieldbow with a bowstring, granting 10 experience.

Like all shieldbows and unlike most other weapons, it incorporates a shield inseparably despite the fact that nothing resembling 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 Shieldbow is 8 spaces.

  • Before the EoC, all shieldbows used to be longbows. They had a higher Range accuracy bonus and attack range than shortbows, but had a slower attack speed.
  • The shield on the bow appears to be made out of bronze.
