To train Bowcraft, you will require a number of different things, firstly wooden logs, which are obtained through Lumberjacking and using an axe on a tree. To craft the logs into weapons or instruments a skinning knife is required. After double clicking the knife and targeting the logs, you can choose what item to try and craft. The wooden weapons can be crafted in different qualities dependent on the crafter's skill.

To create arrows or bolts, the skinning knife is used once again, however you need to craft shafts, you must also have feathers in your inventory. When the shafts are complete you can double click on the shafts and choose what type of arrows or bolts to create. Different wood types can produce different types of elemental ammunition.

Bowcraft is complemented by the skill Arms Lore, which when trained to a similar level as your bowcraft, will allow you more success with your crafting.
