Ava's attractor is a reward from the Animal Magnetism quest. It randomly generates iron arrows directly into the players inventory. The attractor can be upgraded to Ava's accumulator when the player reaches level 50 Ranged for 75 steel arrows; if the player already has 50 Ranged when they receive it, it will already be upgraded. Its appearance is blue when first received (and if the player does not have 50 Ranged, it will also stay blue), however once upgraded, its colour changes to green.
As of the completionist cape update, the benefits of Ava's accumulator became a passive effect, meaning it no longer has to be equipped for it to function.
Previously, the device only worked when equipped, and the player had to not be wearing any metal torso armour since it interfered with the magnet. Note that granite equipment and Fremennik armour are not considered metal armour so the attractor and those armours could be worn simultaneously. Additionally, the Bandos chestplate, sacred clay armour, Varrock armour, white armour, Karil's set, studded leather armour, Armadyl chestplate, fighter torso, and the proselyte hauberk did not affect Ava's accumulator or attractor. Although Ahrim's robetop is a piece of magic armour, it interfered with the accumulator as it is made of metal. Elemental armour and all variants also interfered.
The device will collect most of the players' own arrows, bolts, etc. as they fire them, saving them from having to pick them up, but it cannot do this if there is something in the way. When it is working properly, the player's ammunition should often not be consumed.
The player may bring the attractor to Nomad in Soul Wars to have it enchanted. Once enchanted, the ability of the device to retrieve lost arrows will be passed on to the player's Soul Wars cape. Players have the option of preventing their device from picking up random iron items but still letting it retrieve their arrows. This can be toggled on or off by right-clicking the attractor.
In a Postbag from the Hedge letter, Ava asked a player how they would like their accumulator upgraded. This hinted at a third version in a future update, which turned out to be Ava's alerter, obtained during the Do No Evil quest, and kept as one of the rewards.
