Enchanted ruby bolts are adamant bolts tipped with ruby bolt tips and enchanted with the spell Enchant Crossbow Bolt (Ruby) by a player with level 49 Magic, requiring 46 Ranged to wield. The spell enchants 10 ruby bolts at a time and uses 1 blood rune, 1 cosmic rune, and 5 fire runes.
A player activates the Blood Forfeit effect
Special effect[edit | edit source]
Enchanted ruby bolts have a chance of activating the Blood Forfeit effect. When activated, damage dealt to the target will be 20% of the opponent's current Hitpoints with a cap of 100 damage and at the cost of 10% of the player's current Hitpoints. The effect does not activate if the player cannot spare the hitpoints below 10. A long, shrieking noise can be heard when this activates.
For low hitpoint opponents, this effect can be disadvantageous because the effect overrides bolts damage; for example, the effect might only cause 15 damage while a regular hit would cause 30. For this reason, it is often useful to also bring enchanted diamond bolts to use at the end of a fight when ruby bolts cause diminishing returns.
The special effect has a 11% chance of activating in PvP and a 6% chance of activating in PvM. If the player has completed the Hard Kandarin Diary then these values increase to 12.1% and 6.6% respectively. The Kandarin Diary boost is always active regardless of whether the headgear is equipped.
Enchanted ruby bolts are particularly powerful in conjunction with the Zaryte crossbow's special attack, which will guarantee the effect of these bolts with 10% boosted effectiveness for a max hit of up to 110 if the player successfully hits their target.
This effect rolls its chance of activation regardless of whether or not it passes an accuracy roll.
