|Examine||A nice sturdy bow made out of willow.|
The Willow shieldbow is the fifth strongest shieldbow available to free players. The willow shieldbow requires a Ranged and Defence level of 20 or higher to wield. Players can purchase this bow from various shops that sell Ranged equipment. The value of 1 willow shieldbow in investment credits from the activity Mobilising Armies is 97.
Members can make a willow shieldbow using the Fletching skill at level 40. First, a player must cut an unstrung willow shieldbow from willow logs, which grants 41.5 Fletching experience. Then, the player must string the unstrung willow shieldbow with a bowstring, which grants 41.5 experience.
However, players tend to not string these bows for Fletching experience as the cost of the bowstrings ( 357) are significantly higher than the cost of the willow logs ( 20). Many players will use high level alchemy or get rid of the unstrung bows in other ways.
Like all shieldbows and unlike most other weapons, it incorporates a shield inseparably, despite nothing resembling a shield being 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 willow shieldbow is 8 spaces.
