The Third Age-dyed Ascension crossbow is made by dyeing an Ascension crossbow with Third Age dye. This process is irreversible, and the dyed version is untradeable. It has the same combat bonuses and degrade/repair mechanics as the regular Ascension crossbow: it degrades to a broken state after 60,000 charges of combat (but loses 2 charges per hit, so has a minimum duration of 5 hours of combat) but can be repaired at Bob in Lumbridge, or at an armour stand.
Making a Third Age-dyed ascension crossbow costs 2,256,821,861 coins.
This item costs at most 2,000,000 coins to repair completely. The repair cost is precisely calculated by the degradation percentage (i.e. with 75% charge remaining, a full repair would only cost 500,000 coins). It may be repaired through a variety of methods.
These methods cost more as they do not consider player's Smithing level for a repair discount.
These methods provide a repair cost discount of 0.5% per Smithing level (including boosts):
