Steel bolts detail
Steel bolts (p) detail

Steel bolts are the fourth available bolt, just after Iron bolts and before Mithril bolts. Steel bolts may be shot from a steel crossbow or anything better.

If a player wished to create his or her own steel bolts, one must obtain a steel bar. At 33 smithing, a player can create 10 unfinished steel bolts per bar by using a hammer and an anvil. After the player receives the unfinished bolts, the player must attach one feather to each bolt. The player must be a level 46 fletching in order to complete the bolts. Feathers, unfinished bolts, and finished bolts are all stackable to the player's convenience. When feathering, each bolt yields 3.5 experience. If a player wished to do so, he or she may attach red topaz bolt tips at a fletching level of 48 to create red topaz bolts.
