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 of triggering the Armour Piercing effect. This increases the max hit (and thus damage) by 15% and ignores your opponent's Defence and your own accuracy for the hit it activates on.[1][2][3][4] Not only is your range accuracy ignored when the spec activates, so is your range level, so if your stats are reduced (e.g. by brewing down), you will still roll with guaranteed accuracy and 0-115% of your usual max hit.[5] A tinkling 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 of the special effect activating.[6] This effect is always active regardless of whether the headgear is equipped or not.
