Dragonfruit Pie (+4 level boost)
Dragonfruit pies are the new meta for fletching in osrs. These 2-dose foods cost less than 1K each in the grand exchange and they temporarily boost your fletching with 4 levels. Making the fletching skill even faster!
Using dragonfruit is recommended if you want to get 99 fletching using the fastest way possible.
Stash your dragonfruit pies in your inventory (while doing darts) or your bank tab (while doing bows) for maximum efficiency.
Fastest Way to 99 Fletching in OSRS
OSRS Fletching Darts 1-99
Fletching darts from 1-99 fletching is the fastest method currently in Oldschool Runescape to train your fletching. Taking this method to 99 can give you realistic experience rates of up to 1.5M per hour.
This method is only for those that have the money to do it. Do not even think about this method if you don’t have around 150M to waste!
Total Time: 12 to 18 hours (realistically)
The current world record is held by EVScape: 1-99 fletching in 3 hour and 9 minutes using only darts.
Total Cost: 143M
Since prices change constantly you’ll want to use the fletching calculator for a more accurate gp/exp.

|10 – 22||Bronze Darts||1.8||2484||72K/hr – 108k/hr||– 42K|

OSRS Fletching Darts with Dragonfruit Pie
Using dragonfruit you can constantly boost your fletching level +4. If you want to get 99 fletching as fast as possible it is 100% recommended as it will cut your time by about 2 hours and you’ll pay only around 3M more in total.
Total Cost: 146M
Total Time (100% dependent on your clicks): 10,5 to 16 hours (realistically)
|Levels (dragonfruit pie)||Method||Exp per Dart||Amount (of Darts)||EXP Rate||Money Lost|
|6 – 18||Bronze Darts||1.8||1,673||72K/hr – 108k/hr||– 28K|
|18 – 33||Iron Darts||3.8||3,875||150k – 230K/hr||– 80K|
|33 – 48||Steel Darts||7.5||8,636||300K – 450K/hr||– 470K|
|48 – 63||Mithril Darts||11.2||25,499||450K – 670K/hr||– 1.8M|

|91 – 99||Dragon Darts||25||285,264||1M – 1.5M/hr||– 85M|
Alternative – Adamant Darts to 99
Alternatively, from 63-99 (using a dragonfruit pie to boost to 67) you can stick to Adamant Darts. This will give you between 600-900k experience per hour and cost you 84M to reach 99. Using this method will take you 14-21 hours to reach 99 fletching.
Fletching Darts on OSRS Mobile
A new method for getting 99 fletching with insane speed is fletching darts on OSRS mobile. You can tap faster than you can click making this method up to twice as fast as usual. Of course, it takes a while to get used to the mechanism and this method is extremely click-intensive. I’ve tried it and I can’t keep it up for more than 30 minutes, but you should go see for yourself if you want to.
Some of the experience rates you can expect when fletching darts on OSRS mobile (90,000 darts per hour):
- Mithril Darts: 1M EXP/hr
- Adamant Darts: 1.35M EXP/hr
- Rune Darts: 1.7M EXP/hr
- Dragon Darts: 2.25M EXP/hr
This means that you can get 99 fletching in under 6 hours with the osrs mobile method.
OSRS Fletching Guide – Most Profitable Way to 99
Method 1 – Cutting unstrung bows
Cutting logs into unstrung bows is a common method players take to reach 99 because it is profitable and very AFK. You can easily do this method while watching a movie or focussing on other work. Since yew shortbows result in significant loss and it just isn’t worth it for the experience gained, we have left them out of this table.
Again, prices of bows change quickly in osrs so to stay on top it is advised to use the fletching calculator.
|Levels||Method||Exp per bow||Amount of bows||EXP Rate||Profit||Approx Time|
|10 – 20||Longbow (u)||10||332||15K/hr||-2k||13 minutes|
|20 – 25||Oak Shortbow (u)||16.5||205||25K/hr||-2K||8 minutes|
|25 – 35||Oak Longbow (u)||25||583||40K/hr||-20K||20 minutes|
|35 – 40||Willow Shortbow (u)||33.25||446||50K/hr||2K||20 minutes|
|40 – 50||Willow Longbow (u)||41.5||1,545||70K/hr||4K||50 minutes|
|50 – 55||Maple Shortbow (u)||50||1,307||80K/hr||45K||45 minutes|
|55 – 70||Maple Longbow (u)||58.25||9,803||90K/hr||215K||6 hours|
|70 – 85||Yew Longbow (u)||70||33,613||120K/hr||1.9M||21 hours|
|85-99||Magic Longbow (u)||91.5||9,775,837||150K/hr||850K||65 hours|
|Total Time||94 hours|
Method 2 – Stringing bows
Even though the process of stringing bows gives you the same amount of experience as cutting a bow, the string method is a lot faster. For this method you’ll need bowstrings and unstrung (u) bows which you can get from the grand exchange or make yourself.
This method is not nearly as AFK as cutting bows but it will provide you with a higher profit starting from maple longbows. The experience rates are also significantly higher.
|Fletching Levels||Method||Exp per bow||Amount of bows||EXP Rate||Profit||Approx Time|
|10 – 20||Longbow (u)||10||332||23K/hr||-50K||8 minutes|
|20 – 25||Oak Shortbow (u)||16.5||205||40K/hr||-32K||5 minutes|
|25 – 35||Oak Longbow (u)||25||583||60K/hr||-88K||15 minutes|
|35 – 40||Willow Shortbow (u)||33.25||446||80K/hr||-57k||12 minutes|
|40 – 50||Willow Longbow (u)||41.5||1,545||100K/hr||– 63K||30 minutes|
|50 – 55||Maple Shortbow (u)||50||1,307||115K/hr||-18K||30 minutes|
|55 – 70||Maple Longbow (u)||58.25||9,803||130K/hr||560K||4 hours|
|70 – 85||Yew Longbow (u)||70||33,613||180K/hr||3.3M||14 hours|
|85-99||Magic Longbow (u)||91.5||106,840||200K/hr||7.2M||49 hours|
|Total Time||68,5 hours|

Create your own path
Since prices change so quickly there will always be new methods that become profitable and old methods that will result in a loss. To stay on top of this, use the fletching calculator alongside the methods in this osrs fletching guide to create your ideal path to 99.
Combine fletching with other skills
Some zero time methods such as creating darts and bolts can easily be done while doing other activities. These fletching methods require just two inventory slots and you can spam-click them between certain activities and skills such as agility, questing, etc.
Summary: Osrs Fletching Guide
Hopefully, this osrs fletching guide was helpful and will aid you in getting 1-99 fletching as quickly as possible. Fletching is a very low key skill that you can train semi-AFK while you do quests, NMZ or skilling on an alt account.
If you want to train as AFK as possible and still make some money, cutting is highly recommended. If you don’t want to AFK you can opt for stringing and still make money while fletching or you can opt for darts and spend money to get 99 fletching as quickly as possible.
Remember: you can buy dragonfruit pies from the grand exchange to boost your fletching levels by 4 so you can get access to higher darts/bows and achieve higher fletching experience rates. Stash these in the same bank tab for efficiency.
Definitely check out fletching on mobile if you plan on doing darts all the way to 99. Let us know if any information is missing so we can keep this osrs fletching guide as updated as possible.
