Steel javelin detail

The steel javelin is a type of member's only Ranged ammunition used by the light and heavy ballistas.

They can be fletched by attaching steel javelin heads to javelin shafts at level 32 Fletching, granting 75 experience per 15 javelins made. They can also be obtained by buying them from the Ranging Guild, the Void Knight Archery Store or from Oobapohk's Javelin Store after Monkey Madness II.
