Onyx bolts (e) detail.png

Enchanted onyx bolts are rune bolts tipped with enchanted onyx. Onyx bolts can be enchanted through the spell Enchant Crossbow Bolt (Onyx) by a player with level 87 Magic. The spell enchants 10 onyx bolts at a time. These bolts are rarely used due to their cost, but are often fletched and enchanted by ironman players for their High Level Alchemy value.

Enchanted onyx bolts have a chance of triggering the Life Leech effect. This will deal 20% extra damage (30% when under the effect of the Zaryte crossbow) and heal the attacker's Hitpoints by 25% of the total damage dealt. This does not work on the undead, as they have no "life" to leech.

The special effect has a 10% chance of activating in PvP and an 11% chance of activating in PvM. If the player has completed the Hard Kandarin Diary then these values increase to 11% and 12.1% respectively. The Kandarin Diary boost is always active regardless of whether the headgear is equipped. When used in PvP without the completion of the Hard Kandarin Diary, the effective average damage increase is 2%, and the expected health to be regained is 2.5% of the total damage dealt over time. In PvM or with the diary completed, this only increases.
