I think bowstrings should be stackable.

Fletching is one of the least AFK-able skills because stringing bows requires that you halve your inventory between the bow and the string, making your full inventory only take a few seconds to get through. I kept having to stop writing this so that I could reload the inventory rather than busting it out in one thunderous typing session during one inventory.

I can grab a whole fistful of bowstrings in real life. If I divide a backpack into 28 sections, I can fit a whole bunch of tangled-up bowstrings in 1/28th of the backpack, and I can fit a whole lot more than 28 individual strings in a full backpack. Thread and feathers are stackable, and what are bowstrings if not really thick thread or really narrow feathers?

Regards,
Bulbazard

Uhh just saying, but stringing bows isnt the only way to train fletch.

So if you choose to do this, then you choose to lose out on afk time.

You cant have better xp/hr and decent afk time.

Might as well ask for broad arrows to be more afk.

It's much less about the AFK time and much more about it not making any logical sense for bowstrings to not stack. They stack in real life. I understand that changing it would impact xp rates, but it's an illogical way to prevent higher gains. Things can be balanced so that making arrows is still competitive xp/hr without making us all pretend that 28 bowstrings will fill up a backpack. No need to be a negative nancy :p

Just saying, but online games arent meant to make logical sense.

I mean you play a game were dragons and gods among countless other fictional things exist, so this should be the least of your worries.

There are way too many skills which to train you simply interact with the bank, lets not forget we have only 28 backpack spaces because Andrew when making the game couldn't physically fit more and not of some deliberate calculation.

If you look at runes, which stack, lying on the ground they're as big as your head, so using logic with this would imply everything smaller than a rune (most stuff in RS) to be stackable as well. Yet it would be a bad idea to make everything stackable.

You can fastly fill your backpack already using presets, something you couldn't do in the past, so I believe it's fine already the way it is.

This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.

Like said above, just use presets to make it faster.

Not everything needs to be stackable as that doesnt make logical sense.
