Ava's assembler is the upgraded version of Ava's accumulator that requires level 70 Ranged to equip. It provides the best in slot ranged attack bonus for the cape slot, and is the only cape slot item that provides a Ranged Strength bonus. Like all of Ava's devices, the assembler does not work when metal torso armour is worn, as this will cause 'interference'; this includes most melee armour as well as Ahrim's robes.

To obtain the assembler, players must take Ava's accumulator (or 4,999 coins), Vorkath's head (which can only be obtained by killing Vorkath after completion of Dragon Slayer II) and 75 mithril arrows to Ava in Draynor Manor.

Similar to its predecessors, it can randomly gather mithril ranged equipment. It also has an 80% chance of saving ammunition compared to the accumulator's 72%. As the remaining 20% chance is for the ammunition breaking, the assembler will never drop any ammo on the ground.

Ammo recovery rate[edit | edit source]

The breakdown of the ammo recovery rate is as listed:

  • Break on impact: 20%
  • Recovered automatically: 80%

Cost saving benefits[edit | edit source]

The ammo retention of the assembler results in each ammunition being fired roughly 5 times before it is destroyed. This means it is approximately five times cheaper than the price paid. Comparatively, Ava's Accumulator's 72% ammo retention rate, fires ammo 3.57 times per ammunition, assuming it is not picked up from the ground, though picking it up would make it match the assembler's rate.

If is the probability that a single arrow lasts exactly shots and the probability that a single arrow lasts at most shots then


Since ,


Which means the mean number of shots you get from one arrow is,


This makes Ava's Assembler times as efficient as Ava's Accumulator when not picking up arrows.

Death and upgrading[edit | edit source]

If the player dies below level 20 Wilderness, it will remain in their inventory. However, the item will become unusable and must be repaired with 75,000 coins by using the item on Perdu. Alternatively, a Trouver parchment and a payment of 500,000 coins can be given to Perdu in order to lock it (after which it gains the (l) suffix); this allows the item to be kept on death, unbroken, past level 20 Wilderness. If the player dies to another player above level 20 Wilderness and the item is not locked or protected, it is converted to 6,120 coins.

Players can use the assembler on Lanthus to have improved ammunition collection capabilities within the Castle Wars minigame. The assembler can also be used on Nomad for the Soul Wars minigame.

The Ava's assembler can be combined with the max cape to change its appearance by turning it into the assembler max cape. Turning the Ava's assembler into an assembler max cape is the only way for ultimate ironmen to store one, as it counts as a max cape on the cape rack.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The "commune" dialogue speaks of the undead chicken, despite having Vorkath's head in the device.
    • The player also talks about "dead[sic] chicken" when representing the item to Nomad, despite having Vorkath's head in the device.
    • Similarly, the player and Lanthus both exclaim the player to have a "dead[sic] chicken" when representing the item.
