Enchanted bolts

From Old School RuneScape Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Enchanted bolts are gem-tipped crossbow bolts enchanted through the Enchant Crossbow Bolt spell to obtain a secondary effect. All enchanted bolts can be traded, with the exception of enchanted jade bolts.

While players can only add certain gem bolt tips to specific metal bolts, dragon bolts can have any type of gem bolt tips added to them.

The enchanted bolt's effects are randomly triggered, and offer a variety of effects depending upon the type of gem tipped onto the bolts. The chance of the special effect occurring is increased by 10% upon the completion of the Hard Kandarin Diary.

The Zaryte crossbow has a passive effect that will increase damage inflicted by bolt effects by 10% of damage inflicted. For example, with enchanted ruby bolts, the bolt's special effect, Blood Forfeit, would deal 22% of the opponent's current hitpoints with a cap of 110 damage, rather than the usual 20% damage and 100 hitpoint damage cap.
