Arrowheads are the first type of Shard items. You can collect them from bow-wielding Goblins and Orcs.
In RF5, Arrowheads are used in a number of recipes that require Shards, such as Scythe Farm Tools.
|Where To Get Arrowheads
|Belpha Ruins, Phoros Woodlands
|Belpha Ruins: Depths
|Phoros Woodlands, Whispering Woods
Like most items obtained from monsters, it’s always best to use your Spell Seal to obtain it.
Note: If the item you obtain isn’t an Arrowhead, defeat that monster and wait for another spawn. Spell Seal only steals one item per monster spawn.
The following will be monsters that drop Arrowhead and their recommended farming spot:
1. Goblin Archer
Belpha Ruins B1 is a good spot to hunt for Goblin Archers because:
- They can be found all over the map
- There’s one Gate that spawns only Goblin Archers (circled in image above)
Note: If you want more of a challenge, Goblin Archers can also be found at Phoros Woodlands at a much higher level
2. Orc Archer
Orc Archers can be found at:
- Phoros Woodlands
- Whispering Woods
The spawn at Whispering Woods is a better spot for hunting because the Gate only spawns Orcs and Orc Archers.
3. Orc Hunter
Orc Hunters can be found at multiple areas of Phoros Woodlands.
Encircled in the map image is a good spot for them since quite a few spawn there.
4. Goblin Sniper
Goblin Snipers can be first encountered at Belpha Ruins: Depths.
Although Goblin Snipers have higher base levels than the rest of the monsters that drop Arrowheads, they’re also a good monster for obtaining Silk Cloth.
Note: Belpha Ruins: Depths is unlocked as you continue the Main Story.
An Arrowhead has multiple uses and is an easy Shard item to collect.
