Sinew detail

Sinew is created through the Cooking skill, by using a piece of raw beef, raw wolf meat or raw bear meat with a range and choosing to make sinew. Members can use it on a spinning wheel with 10 Crafting to create crossbow string, granting 15 Crafting experience in the process.


  • This is not the same material as flax and cannot be used for regular bows.
  • Do not attempt to use the raw beef or raw bear meat on a fire, as no option to make sinew will appear and you will just cook the raw meat.
  • Do not attempt to use raw yak meat, despite the fact that yaks can be considered as cows' relatives. You can make only cooked meat from it, not sinew.
