A detailed image of a magic longbow The Magic longbow is the strongest longbow that can be made (crystal bows, magic comp bow, and dark bows are not player made). It can use arrows up to rune. The magic longbow requires a Ranged level of 50 or higher to wield. This weapon also has a special attack called Power Shot. It's an accurate shot that will almost always inflict damage. It does not fire 2 arrows for its special like the magic shortbow.

Members can make a magic longbow through the Fletching skill at level 85. First, a player has to cut an unstrung magic longbow from magic logs, granting 91.5 Fletching experience. Then, the player must string the unstrung magic longbow with a bow string, granting a further 91.5 experience.

This weapon is not as popular as the magic shortbow due to its slower speed, but is sometimes used to snipe enemies from a far distance.

Profit analysis

Magic longbows used to be high alched quite often for a profit. However, this led to them no longer being profitable in terms of gold or experience, seeing as many others things are far more cost efficient to train on.
