Crystal bow detail.png

The imbued crystal bow was a degradable bow created by imbuing a crystal bow at the Nightmare Zone, costing 20,000 reward points. It offered the same stats as a fully charged crystal bow, and unlike the crystal bow, its stats did not degrade as it lost charges.

Degrading[edit | edit source]

The crystal bow degraded over time. After 250 hits, it would degrade into a "Crystal bow 9/10 (i)", and thereafter for every 250 hits, it would degrade another 1/10th until it reverted back into a crystal seed after a total of 2,500 hits, and required recharging before it could be used again. Unlike its unimbued version, the stats of the imbued crystal bow did not degrade as it lost charges.

Recharging[edit | edit source]

Ilfeen will recharge crystal seeds into crystal bows, crystal halberds, or crystal shields. She can be found teleporting back and forth between two clearings in Isafdar. Once an imbued crystal bow reverted back into a crystal seed, it would lose its imbue, and would need to be reimbued after being recharged into another crystal bow.

Initially, Ilfeen charges 900,000 coins to re-enchant a crystal seed into a crystal bow. However, the price is decreased by 180,000 coins each time Ilfeen re-enchants a seed for a player, in the following manner, until reaching the minimum recharge cost of 180,000 coins:

Enchantment Cost for re-enchantment
First 900,000
Second 720,000
Third 540,000
Fourth 360,000
Fifth and thereafter 180,000

The amount that Ilfeen charges is dependent on the number of crystal seeds she has re-enchanted, not the number of crystal bows she has recharged. For example, a player who pays Ilfeen 900,000 coins to re-enchant a crystal seed into a crystal shield will only have to pay her 720,000 coins to recharge a seed into a crystal bow.
