Blightbound crossbow detail.png

The Blightbound crossbow is a main-hand crossbow requiring level 92 Ranged to wield. It has an off-hand counterpart and is able to fire all bolts. It is the strongest main-hand crossbow in the game. It, along with its off-hand counterpart, once belonged to Erethdor, as the server wide announcement received when a player receives one of the bows refers to it as "Erethdor's Blightbound crossbow."

It is a rare drop from Solak and has a special effect that gives a 25% chance to save bakriminel bolts. Combined with the off-hand blightbound crossbow, there will be a 50% chance in total.

The crossbow will degrade 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). It can be fixed by Repair NPCs such as Bob in Lumbridge, or at an armour stand in a player-owned house. A full repair, without discounts, costs 3,000,000 coins.

The crossbow, and the off-hand variant can be dyed with either barrows, shadow, third-age, blood, or ice dyes. This process is irreversible and will make the crossbow untradeable.

Common bolts used with this weapon are T92 Blight bolts for slayer or T99 Ruby bakriminel bolts (e) and Diamond bakriminel bolts (e) for bossing.

Repair cost[edit | edit source]

The base repair cost of the Blightbound crossbow when completely degraded to 0.0% item charge is 3,000,000 coins. It can be repaired by:

Alternatively, it can be repaired on an armour stand in a player-owned house or on a whetstone device anywhere. This provides a discount of 0.5% per Smithing level (including boosts).

If it is only partially degraded the cost of a full repair is multiplied by the percentage of item charge that needs to be repaired to produce the current repair cost.

Dyed[edit | edit source]

The Blightbound crossbow can be recoloured with dyes from Treasure trails for purely cosmetic purposes. A warning message is given when attempting to dye a plain Blightbound crossbow.

Once the dye is applied, the Blightbound crossbow becomes permanently untradeable.
