Diamond bolts (e) detail.png

Enchanted diamond bolts are adamant bolts tipped with enchanted diamond. Diamond bolts can be enchanted by using the spell Enchant Crossbow Bolt (Diamond) by a player with 57 Magic. The spell enchants 10 diamond bolts per cast and uses 2 law runes, 1 cosmic rune, and 10 earth runes.

Enchanted diamond bolts have a 10% chance (5% chance against another player) of triggering the Armour Piercing effect. This increases the maximum damage by 15% (25% when under the effect of the Zaryte crossbow) for that hit as well as becoming a successful hit.[1][2][3][4] The maximum hit is calculated based on current ranged level, so if your ranged level is reduced (e.g. by brewing down) your max hit will go down too. A twinkling sound can be heard when this activates.

If the player has completed the hard Kandarin Diary, there is a 10% increase of the likelihood that the special effect of an enchanted bolt will occur, giving enchanted diamond bolts an overall 11% chance (5.5% chance against another player) of the special effect activating.[5] This effect is always active regardless of whether the headgear is equipped or not.
