Guide to quick levels
  1. Get logs and make them into shafts until level 35.
  2. At Level 35 you can make willow bows, so cut them but do not string as it would be a waste of money. Continue this until you get to level 70.
  3. At level 70 you can make yew longbows. Once you can do this, you can really start making money as well. Continue making Yew Longbows until level 80 and then you can make Magic Shortbows!
