The well-trained fletcher can create arrows and bows for use by archers, using boards and feathers as resources. Since the fletcher typically works with boards, the Carpentry and Lumberjacking skills complement Fletching very well.
Use a Fletching Knife to begin creating fletching items.

The Fletching skill provides a damage bonus in PvE and PVP when wielding archery weapons.
The damage bonus is calculated using the following formulas:
Fletching Skill < 100.0
FletchingDamageBonus = FletchingSkillLevel / 5
Fletching Skill = 100.0
FletchingDamageBonus = (FletchingSkillLevel / 5) + 10
This means it provides a scaling 20% damage bonus when using archery weapons. At GM Fletching, this bonus becomes an additional 10% bonus (a total bonus of 30%).
