Ogre Bows and Arrows
Materials Needed to make Ogre Arrows • • • •
Achey logs Knife Feathers Wolf bones and Chisel (For Ogre Arrows) or Hammer and Nails (for Brutal Arrows also see Smithing Guide)

You must have completed the Big Chompy Bird Hunting Quest to make Ogre arrows. To make ogre arrows, follow the instructions below. 1. 2. 3. 4. Cut some logs from the Achey Trees in the Feldip Hills. Use a Knife on them to make Ogre arrow shafts (yield varies, from 2 to 6). Add Feathers to make Flighted ogre arrows (at least 4 Feathers per arrow). Finally, kill some Wolves (any kind) and use a chisel with their bones to get Wolfbone arrowtips (yield varies, from 2 to 6). Making Wolfbone arrowtips (using chisel on Wolf bones) earns 2.5 xp each. Though the yield varies from 2 to 6, the xp each is constant.


Add these to the Flighted ogre arrows to make Ogre Arrows.

After the Zogre Flesh Eater Quest, you can make Ogre composite bows and Brutal arrows. The Composite ogre bow is made by using a Knife on an Achey tree log while carrying Wolf bones. To make Brutal arrows, use the desired type of Nails on Headless ogre arrows while carrying a Hammer. (Black nails may be found in coffins or as a Zogre drop. Comp ogre bows and Brutal arrows may also be purchased from Uglag Nor after you've sold him one Relicym's balm as described in the quest guide.) These cause the most damage to Zogres and can also be used to hunt Chompy birds or for regular everyday Ranging.
