Training Strategy Edit

Early levels most people choose to cut arrow shafts, and feather them to create headless arrows. This also extends into the midgame as one of the easiest ways to train if you have been thieving from men for arrow shafts, and guards for feathers.

People usually choose to make arrow heads after training smithing, and this provides nice AFK experience once combined with the headless arrows you have made earlier.

Bows are a lot less common as a training method, but if you did want to do it, it is a lot better experience to just cut the log into a bow, and not string it, unless you want to incinerate the bow for force essences.
