Feather detail

Feathers are items used in the Fishing and Fletching skills. Feathers are used as lures for fly fishing, and may also be used as bait for Barbarian heavy-rod fishing, but it is sometimes cheaper to use fishing bait. Feathers are also used to make arrows, darts, and bolts.

Buying feathers from shops and selling them on the Grand Exchange was previously a decent money making method, but following the release of feather packs on 20 August 2018, which made them much easier to obtain, the prices of feathers has fallen.

These are the only feathers that can be used to summon a Newtroost during the Creature Creation activity in the Tower of Life, as coloured feathers are not accepted by the altar.

Obtaining feathers

Feathers can be bought at a number of stores across RuneScape and can also be obtained as drops from many monsters, most notably chickens, which drop them in amounts of 5, 10, and 15. They can of course also be bought from players.

Coloured feathers can be acquired from snaring birds using the Hunter skill.
