Yew shortbow detail

The yew shortbow is a shortbow stronger than the maple shortbow. Yew shortbows require a Ranged level of 40 or higher for the player to wield it. The attack range of the yew shortbow is 7 spaces.

Members can make a yew shortbow through the Fletching skill at level 65. First, a player must cut an unstrung yew shortbow (u) from yew logs, granting 67.5 Fletching experience. Then, the player must string the unstrung yew shortbow with a bow string, granting another 67.5 experience.

  • With the Evolution of Combat, the yew shieldbow and shortbow were both made into member's items, but this was reverted to free-to-play with the second player-owned ports update.
