Fletching

The Fletcher can make his own bows and arrows, both for personal use and for sale to other players

What is the best strategy to develop and use the fletching skill? Which recipes are the most and least useful? Can you make a profit off of this skill, and if so how? Where is the best city to practice your skill? What classes are best set to take up fletching?

Post your strategies on how to best use the fletching skill, and read those posted by others.

Superb spinneret fluid drop rates whacked?

The Drop rate for these are insanely whacked. I mean either they are super rare or non existent. Anything be done about the drop rate? I camped everywhere listed that they drop and got one and that was after several weeks of hunting. There's gotta be a place they drop at a descent rate. Superb silks- no prob,,, but the superb spinneret fluids are a time killer for sure. Any help/suggestions would be great!

Currently at fletching level of 202 and have been using www.almarsguides.com/eq/tradeskills/fletching

Arrows got me to 202 but now I see that I start making bows that trivial at 282.

I'm going to be going the route using vendors so that I don't have to spend an extortionate amount of time running all over the world for dropped items. Just seems like too much work.

OK ... call me lazy :)

Any other good guides out there?

I am trying to get my fletching to 300. There just don't seem to be many recipes with a high enough trivial that are not requiring rare drops or that you be a specific race/class. I have searched and searched and am just not finding good information. I need a recipe that is trivial over 300 for something that can be made from mostly vendor purchased items. With jewelcrafting, research, brewing, tailoring, smithing and pottery, there were always these type of vendor-purchased ingredient items to make. If anyone knows any recipes that are over 300 trivial, I would sure appreciate the information. And please include what recipe gives the best return on investment. I knew smithing and jewelcraft were spendy tradeskills. Was not expecting fletching to be.

If you are a wood elf the answer is easy. You will want to make Mithril Champion Arrows. Mithril is fairly easy to farm compared to so many components in the other recipes. If you are not a wood elf, but worship Karana you make steel guardian arrows using a Surefall fletching kit.

If you are neither of those, you are not going to get an easy answer. Sorry.

Have you looked at eqtraders? they have a quick trivial list that you can browse. Good luck.
Is fletching dead?
# Dec 23 2008 at 11:20 AM Rating: Decent
Seeing as how there have been no posts in this forum for 18 months or so, it appears fletching is dead.

If anyone still reads this, with the advent of the defiant weapons, specifically the bows, is it even worth continuing to raise your fletching skill to make higher and higher level bows.

As a warrior, I mainly use the bow to pull...I suppose I could use it for some damage before engaging, but for whatever reason, I don't.

So, class 4 arrows are already trivial...do any of the high-level player made bows make it worth pursuing?

Long answer:

Well....a lot of tradeskills have been 'injured' with the advent of defiant gear. Cultural armors are at an all time low price and still not moving. Once you hit level 65 you can get a SoF era bow and smoke anything you will ever be able to make. You can spend a load of cash working on fletching but you will find little justification for your efforts, other than accomplishment and a cool title to wear in front of your name.

On the other hand, if you are a wood elf you can make blessed champion arrows and those are really nice. The main drawback there is that once a ranger gets his everlasting quiver aa he is only going to buy one. Sales will be slow and the complexity of making these expendable jewels is prohibitive for use by most folks.

Short answer:

At the moment fletching adds little value to the world of Norrath in comparison to the quality and availability of defiant bows. Sad but true.

well i have been reading all of this stuff people decided to write about fletching and to me fletching seems kinda weak when it comes to making bows. I mean, i have seen the bows i can make at my level (lvl 54 ranger with 203 fletching) and really they are kinda sad. i would never even think about using a bow that i can make in combat because damage is terrible and some of the ranges only go to 50. so i don't understand how i could make a bow for profit if the bow sucks. maybe a nice augment on the bow would rake in some pp but there is no way i am gonna pay 100k for a nice augment to just go and sell...so please explain to me how these bows even come close to making a profit for anyone

you can locate them in the bazaar or make them yourself.

Fletching Components: file, taelosian stone, water flask
In: fletching kit, planar fletching kit, collapsible fletching kit, surefall fletching kit
Yield: 2
Also Returns: file
On Failure Returns: file
Trivial at: 188

the taelosian stone comes from chunk of taelosian rock found in GoD zones. i farm mine in natimbi but there maay be better places. seems to drop best off the land critters rather than water critters. but it's still slow going to get enough to be meaninful.

also, to process the rock to stone, you'll need to have done one of the fletching quests in abysmal sea. you'll want to check the quests listed on alla's for that portion as to how they work and which might be best foryou.

The Easy way to get fletching from 202 to 227:
(Before you do Condensed flame,ice,or shadow arrowheads)

make these http://www.eqtraders.com/items/show_item.php?item=10809&menustr=080060024000

You have to do the quest, to make serrated or discord arrow heads, first, here http://www.eqtraders.com/articles/article_page.php?article=q151&menustr=120037000000

I suggest doing the freebie quest, as it is alot faster, you can get "chunk of taelosian rock" to drop off mobs in Natimbi, or you can buy it in the bazaar.

If you want the collect quest, go here http://www.eqtraders.com/articles/article_page.php?article=q152&menustr=120037000000

Do this before you attempt to make condensed (flame,ice,or shadow) arrowheads. It will get your trivial up to 227, and you will have better luck starting condensed from there.

Well you can hit the search button to get a list or put in part of the name like class 6 for all class 6 arrow types that you know.

If you don't know an item. then you have to make one in experiment mode first before it is added to your list.

If not, what can they make or how limited are they?
2. Is there a good way to trade items between characters? This one seems problematic now that I want to give my new character all my good equipment.

Thanks in advance for anyone who can answer this.

You know. I've been reading a lot of the posts above and one thing that no one is hitting on is the stupid amount of plat you can make with fletching.

I'm sitting at 186. I can make damn near any arrow there is...except magical ones. I'll sit there for hours with 2k pp and make arrow after arrow. Then I setup my little bazaar character to sell them off. You know I have about 5k pp right now and I just keep spending it all on my fletching. It's an addiction I am NOT seeking help for. I've probably made 80K on fletching in the last month alone. Setting up you bazaar character before going out on Friday or Saturday night when all the guilds are getting raids together is awesome. Even guys with good fletching don't want to waste the time making them and will by my 6dmg 150rng arrows for 1pp a piece. Most by out my stock and I have to log back in my fletcher to move over more arrows to the bazaar character.

Last week I made 5k profit on my arrows. Bows don't sell that well when people can pick up the dropped good ones for cheap.

Anyway. Good luck to all. Even if you don't use fletching to make money it's a great skill to pick up if you plan on using a bow ever.

get STR and DEX buffs from shammy before fletching, and try harder trivals.

For ex. if you are at 180, try at least 192 or 202, you will fail more, but raise fletching much, much faster.

RE: can't raise skill level

Greetings,

It doesn't sound like you're doing anything wrong - unfortunately, in all tradeskills, you'll eventually come to a time when you'll have an extended run with no skillups. Smiley: frown

Having as high an INT/WIS as possible helps - INT for you I assume, as you're a SK. Using a geerlok device increases your chance of a successful combine, but not necessarily the chance of a skillup - although recent revelations of the inner workings of the tradeskill formulae at Fan Faire show that a successful attempt does give you a better chance at getting a skillup. Confused?! Smiley: confused I certainly was....

The best thing is to just keep plugging away - you will get a skillup eventually, and then two or three within a few combines - it's just the way the random number generator works.

Hope this helps, and if you want to know more about successes/skillups, take a trip the eqtraders.com message board and attempt to follow the mathematical discussion there! Smiley: grin

Cheap after 105?
# Nov 26 2003 at 10:26 PM Rating: Default

86 posts
Well my fletching is now 105, yay! But noticed its getting quite expensive. A stack of hooked arrowheads cost about 7pp. A stack of wooden arrow vanes I think are about 14pp. I'm making class 4 wood point arrow which trival at 122. Being this my first character, plat doesn't come easy unless I keep doing Ldon groups. Even though I'm a human with decent charisma, I'm thinking of getting those stiens that have +25cha on them? Seeing if that will make a difference in my purchasing.

Well if anyone can mention any cheap ways to raise fletching after 100 please post. I'll try and find different combines myself to see which one is the cheapest and repost here :)

May I suggest trying www.eqtraders.com Also you don't have to upgrade every part of the arrow the trival goes off of the highest part you are using at least to 182 and I think until 202. example class 1 wood silver tip arrows: bundled wooden arrow shafts, large groove nocks, several round cut fletchings, silver tipped arrowheads = trival 182.

Greetings,

More CHA will certainly help your buying and selling prices, but there is minimal difference once you go past about 115. Another thing affecting the prices you're getting could be the faction of the merchant involved. Better he likes you, the better prices you will get.

Hope this helps.

I wish I had never taken up fletching. I am currently at 216 skill level, and going balistic. I started out today with about 250 condensed shadow heads and acrylia shafts. I went through almost 100 for a single stinking skill point! My wisdom was at 234, so that can not be the issue. Even if I am lucky, I have to do about 40 combines with the 250 triv. arrows. It doesn't help that I'm a dwarven fletcher...I don't get the oportunity to try some alternate items for advancement. Can anyone help me? This is so frustrating. Some have tried to say that it was because I didn't have my dexterity close to max, but with all skills that possibly use something other than wis/intel as a help in skilling quicker, it's always the greatest valued stat that the point increase goes by. For instance..Smithing: Strength will replace intel/wisdom as the factor stat to increase your smithing point raising speed...IF IT IS GREATER than your intelligence or wisdom. Intel/wisdom are the general help stats in all skills, and whatever is the highest is what is used (unless every post of note I've ever read is wrong). SO..those who believe dexterity or agility are able to increase your fletching ability quicker, this may be true, but only if it is higher than your intelligence or wisdom. Please set me straight if you know this to be incorrect. I'm going to give up totally on maxing out fletching if I can not figure out a way to do it more efficiently. I've purchased the "stuff" to make 3 artisan seals, and want to some day to Grimel's Aid Quest (or whatever it is called), but I'm not going to throw several thousand pp's away for trophy attempts at 216+5% for geerlok (making it 226.something). There has got to be a cheaper way to do this. With the darkwood compound bows, you lose about 80PP per successful combine in selling it back to the merchant, but it is still taking me 20-35 bows per point! Lets say I get 4 points per hundred, with 5 fails in that hundred. That will cost me 8,000PP(+1500 for the 5 fails)...so I get 4 points for 9500pp..hmmm..what's wrong with this picture? I sure hope I did my math wrong there, because that is staggering even to me. Please help.

(Before you do Condensed flame,ice,or shadow arrowheads)

make these http://www.eqtraders.com/items/show_item.php?item=10809&menustr=080060024000

You have to do the quest, to make serrated or discord arrow heads, first, here http://www.eqtraders.com/articles/article_page.php?article=q151&menustr=120037000000

I suggest doing the freebie quest, as it is alot faster, you can get "chunk of taelosian rock" to drop off mobs in Natimbi, or you can buy it in the bazaar.

If you want the collect quest, go here http://www.eqtraders.com/articles/article_page.php?article=q152&menustr=120037000000

Do this before you attempt to make condensed (flame,ice,or shadow) arrowheads. It will get your trivial up to 227, and you will have better luck starting condensed from there.

Small profit on arrows

Thought I'd share some of my hard earned knowledge about fletching. I used the EQTC guide and made the cheapest arrows for my skill then tried to sell them in the bazaar. They didn't sell well and I barely broke even with what I sold. Now I make silver tip, steel shaft, small knock, parabolic fletched and make about 4 plat profit per stack and I can't seem to make enough of them to meet demand. Considering that's only two successful combines per stack it's not bad money. I recover my costs plus a little extra and use the rest for shooting at mobs while the tank goes toe to toe. I just wish I had the sense to make better arrows earlier so they would have sold better. By the way, I have tried selling arrows with more expensive fletching, reducing range while increasing damage, but the parabolics sell much better, probably because I can keep the price down.

Happy Fletching!

Someone wanna explain to me what Verant had in mind when they made a Karana cultural fletching bow series? I've always been proud to say I'm a WOOD ELF Ranger because of one thing I have special about me. I can make a set of bows in the game noone else can. To me, that's a very cool thing. Halflings have slightly better stats than Wood Elves, so I've always looked at it as the cultural fletching balanced it out. SO you can imagine when a cultural bow series was announced for Karanians, I was not too happy. But I decided to make the best of it...it's cool if they get their own series...because I still have mine.
Well, the Thunderbolt Equivelant, the Eternal Tempest Compound Bow, has all the same stats. They wanted to "balance out" the races, and they did that perfectly on the stats.
So what am I upset about? Has anyone had a look at the Karana bows? Allow me to explain why I'm ticked off. The Blessed Faydark Thunderbolt has a 33% fail rate at 250 skill. That to me says it's trivial above 250. Sound about right to everyone? Well, if you'll have a look at the Eternal Tempest...it's got a trivial skill of 243 fletching.
Someone explain to me how you balance the classes by making it a whole lot easier on the Karana race while us Tunarians have to work our back-sides off to get to 250 skill, and then STILL have a nice large fail rate.

Well seeing that we Karanians have been missing out on ALL the neat cultural fletching stuff for years I think its fair. You Tunarians still get LOTS of neat gear as well. Well my fletching is nowhere near 250 much less 200. Its only 104, but after reading all the posts about people having trouble raising ANY tradeskill past 200 to get to 250 it seems to me that its quite tough. And so what if the Tempest bow is trivaled at 243? I'm sure it has a pretty high failure rate to. I tip my hat to anyone who gets any tradeskill to 250 and can make these uber bows.

Oh, I just noticed something to on eqtraders. It says the trival for it is 243> Which means its greater than 243, so theres a chance that the trival is really 250 for it. Untill someone actually tries to do the combine for it at 243 and weather its sucessful or not we won't know for sure untill then.

OK all, i have read as many boards as I can find about this skill and am currently at 185. I am doing this skill to make the planer bows and make money)) Your right of course, you can not make money in large amounts till you make good bows. MAKING ARROWS IS FOR RAISING SKILL AND BOWS ARE FOR PROFIT!! If you plan on making bows to increase skill you are going to waste an emense amount of money. In all my reading I have found 2 ways to go about this skill.

1- Make the cheapest arrows possible to raise your skill and sell bows to make the money. The arrows you make are usually used to pull mobs at lower lvls and thus 100 range is great and dmg is negligable. The fastest and cheapest way to raise your skill is to buy all cheap parts less 1. Meaning= the arrow becomes trivial at the highest component. Ceramic shafts for example become trivial at 162 skill, making whatever components(no matter how weak or cheap) good to raise your skill until at 162 skill. Then you would simply change out the ceramic shaft for the next higher piece, being either a tip, shaft, fletching or veins, or nock. Remember the whole point of this one is to SAVE pp while raising skill. There is a good list of trivials at EQTRADERS.com. Remember, cheapest parts cept for 1 that matches your desired skill increase(185 skill using field point, steel shaft, parabolic fletching, and small nock will become trivial at the steel shaft's 202 trivial). Do not start using steel shafts at skill 30, it would waste money. Go for the component that raises your skill by 15-30 for the best results. If you wish to increase your skill past 202 you need to use condensed material heads and shafts that trivial at 250+.

The other way....

2- The other way to go about this skill is for the best arrow you can make for your lvl. This is quite expensive in the higher end(100 skill+) and is good only if there is a demand for high end arrows or you use the arrows yourself for the damage.

Just remember...to raise your skill to make better bows-make arrows.

Ok, I have been using a bow for a while and I have yet to figure out the correlation between the bow range and the arrow range. If I have an arrow of range 25 and a bow of range 150, how far will the arrow shoot? If I have an arrow of range 150 and a bow of range 150, how far will the arrow shoot? Finally, if I have an arrow of range 150 and a bow of range 250, how far will the arrow shoot? I think that answering those three questions will tell me what I need to know. Thanks!

You never actually get to make any decent pp from fletching. It's just a skill you work just so you don't run outta arrows and that's about it. People usually buy the bows that are dropped by mobs, not the player made ones...

Fletching wont skill up anymore?
# Feb 16 2003 at 8:06 AM Rating: Default
I worked my Fletching to 110 and i cant get it any higher. It usually takes me only a one stack of each component to combine and that takes my skill up about 1 or 2.I have made 860 arrows since without it going up. I then thought of using my training points on it but when i click train it says "You must learn advanced trade skills in this field" message. I have only been playing eq for not even 2 months and there is many things i dont get. I have a 37th Wood Elf Ranger.So if someone could explain to me what im doing wrong, id appreciate it. Thank you

A great guide for fletching can be found at http://members.bellatlantic.net/%7Eewj/fletchguide/raising_skill.htm
There is a spreadsheet you can download there that will show you the cheapest way to advance skill. It has been invaluable to me (169 skill currently). Also a lot of other good advice. It is out of date in that none of the new PoP recipies are there, like the new Nightmarewood Compound Bow, but great to get to the point that you have even a SHOT at making a NCB later.

Fletching / Bowyering ...

Not easy. The bows that sell well trivial around or above 250. They require very rare components, which usually aren't even for sale in the bazaar, so if you're not looting them in the planes (usually elemental planes), you're not making these bows.

Plus, getting over 202 is hiddeously expensive, and / or takes an EXTREMELY long time in terms of farming acrylia and condensed materials. plus there are sub combines because you gotta smith the parts together, then combine into arrows. when you're done you'll spend a ridiculous number of hours farming materials and smithing sub combines, and then out of 200 attempts, you may, if your wis is 250 and you're quite lucky, get around 10 skill ups. if you're like others though, who's wis is lower, say 200 ish, and you're less likely, you may go through 80 combines just to get one skill up.

not easy. very frustrating. only very profitable if you have at or very near 250 skill.

trying to discourage you? no. but if you want a GM item, along with the cool 100% weight reduction bag and very decent stat bonuses, i reccommend brewing. for what you lose in the cost of the GM item being more expensive, you make up for in the fact that you can hit 248 skill in it for probably under a thousand platinum. plus make your own qeynos afternoon tea. still interested in fletching? well, i am. making bows sounds much cooler than making drinks. but you may want to reserve post-200 skill ups in fletching until after you have the AA's to spare to get a 'new taanan crafting mastery' point.

pre-post-fyi:not speaking from experience
from what i've read on bowyering, it's not the easiest thing in norrath, but very profitable with some bows selling for well over 1kpp, if i remember correctly.you will need at least the string(hemp, linen, or silk) and the wood(of which there are many different types, hickory being the easiest, and i think nightmarewood is the best right now, not sure though).you can use a whittling blade or planing tool and/or a 'standard bow cam' or '2 standard bow cams' to decrease the delay.you can also restring bows to sometimes change the dmg/dly on a bow(haven't seen much info on this).you can usually find a bowyering merchant near a arrow-making merchant, i haven't travelled much, but i know that there is a bowyering merchant in kelethin and plane of knowledge.again, i only know this from what i've read, and a good place to go is http://www.eqtraders.com/index.htm

use field tips large nocks and wood shafts when you trivial out on an arrow advance the fletching 'tip you eventually reach the ceraminc vane (or steel, whichever is top vane can't remember offhand). This will increase fletching to 202. After that you need more than class type arrows to advance. Silver tips are too expensive to learn on

Why make cheap crap to advance skill?
# Jan 18 2003 at 10:47 PM Rating: Default

619 posts
Everyone says that if you are a ranger, you should be more dependent on your bow as a damage dealer than other classes and should be practicing archery and fletching as often as possible. These points I agree on. Where I diverge is the theory that you should make the cheapest, crappiest arrows possible to advance your skill. You might save a lot of money and level up your fletching faster, but what do you do with all those arrows you made? You can't sell them, and if you think you can depend on them to save your ass in a fight, you better think again. I always make the best arrows I can possibly make with at least a 70% success rate. Currently I am making hooked point, bone shaft, shield cut fletch, small nock arrows. My skill is only around 61 or 62 but I have great success making these and I can depend on them doing more damage from further away than the crappy arrows I'm told I should be making in the fletching guides. I have also made a carved elm silk recurve on only my second attempt, which is still not trivial for me. It may take me longer to get my skill high enough to start thinking about assembling my Trueshot, but at least I won't be seeing the words LOADING, PLEASE WAIT.. because my bow let me down due to cheap arrows.

I have a question. Can you make any arrows in the Feir'Dal fletching kit, or do you still need the regular fletching kit to make regular arrows?

You've missed one vital point early in your post - yes people say rangers should use archery as their primary damage dealer, but ONLY after about lvl 55 (at the least) when you get the AA archery skills. Before then your damage from archery will be lower, with a much higher delay, and much more expensive (because of arrow cost) than hand to hand. Even with a Tolan's bracer (unlimited summoned arrows) your damage will still lag behind, and killing level 40+ mobs with the low delay on any bow (compared to much lower dly dual weapons) will take about 10 minutes...
RE: Why make cheap crap to advance skill?
# Feb 01 2003 at 10:13 AM Rating: Good
Per you question on the Fire'Dal fletchin kit being used for arrows the answer is yes. Bleesed Mithril arrows are made using this fletching kit.

I think he meant can you make just standard arrows with out special components (i.e. plain old hooked etc) that way you could just carry around the cultural kit and didnt need a reqular kit taking up space in inventory or bank.

I am now a level 30 Wood Elf Warrior. I just saw the posting on the cultural aspects of the craft. For the low level people who want to learn fletching I have several words of advice. Start now with Forage, Fletching (within trivalís that you can do), and Smithing. It will cost money, but there are ways to make money, if you want to. Head to Crushbone and beat the heck out of the Orcs and loot the belts and pads. Sell them. Two belts and you have your Fletching Kit. I gave up selling the arrows, as you can not make money at that... I use the heck out of them pulling critters to get my Archery up. Even if you are not the main tank, let the target get in range and let fly with one, or if you have time two. Then fight. keep that up, and you will increase not only your Archery, but your other skills. My fletch is now at 81 and I have not made a bow yet. I can crank out some nice arrows though. Having a 150 distance arrow is nice when you are in PC and you want to pull and run like all get out if you agro 4 or 5 or 9.(ahem, thank the gods for Rez) Take it as it is, again I am by no means an expert yet, but if you are on the Terris-Thule server look me up Wanluwen If you are having any trouble, I will try to help.

Find a merchant that sells fletching supplies and buy a book. This will tell you what you need to start. But buy stacks of Field Point tips, Wooden shafts, round fletching, and large nocks. Buy a fletching kit to combine these in. Control click the items and place one of each of the above things in the kit and hit combine. Keep doing this and your skill will go up. That should get you started.

Also, you have to pay attention for the phrase, "You can no longer advance this skill with these materials." That's about right.....when I saw that an OOC got me the hint to change at least 2 of those items. It worked lovely, buuuut it got MUCH harder to make em and it makes different types AND different Class.....I wound up giving a TON of arrows away the day I committed to fletchin'. I'm just adding that to the real good response just b4 mine.....Peace n Love to you all.....

Hail, It has been a very troubling factor in my life that Half Elves do not seem to have any cultural trade skills. Normally this would not bother me but lately (as a half elf ranger) some of the new wood elf bows that can be made are troubling me. When I first made my main, I had little idea that there was such thing as culteral tradeskills. But now that I am well awair it seems almost mocking that I cannot use my fletching skill to reach more specific goals like the blessed faydark stinger. Is there any half-elf only recipies or exceptions to the wood elf fletching skills?

Karana Rangers also have to get their faction with the Tunare Rangers up a bit before they can get the Trueshot/Raincaller quest. It's not hard to do with all the orcs running around Gfay and CB, but it's still a pain that they don't trust you well enough to give you the quests right away.

Anybody know if crafting trueshot longbows would be a good alternative to get fletching past 202? *giveing that one had the patience to gather materials*

Hawkster said it above. You make arrows to level up, you make bows to make money. The expense, and in this instance the gathering of components, makes making bows as a means of levelling up an expensive and time consuming process. The only thing I can suggest is to keep checking the fletching guides for updates. Everytime a new expansion comes out, new tradeskill components and recipes are discovered that can raise your skills higher if you think you have hit the ceiling.

I would say no. The main reason is because the materials. It can take a whole day to get the right materials for just one, let alone at least 20. I would highly advise against it.

I'm a woodelf ranger and my fletching skill is at 102, so I wanted to start with wood vanes, but any time I want to use them there is the message appearing telling me that I cant combine then! Do I need another fletching kit(Fier'dal)? Are there so minimum requirements on the other materials? Any clue??
Thanks for any help.

the woodvane recipe is arrowhead/shaft/vane/nock, not arrowhead/vane/fletch/nock...I learned the hard way, but I hope this helps!
