Off-hand ascension crossbow detail.png

The Off-hand ascension crossbow is a crossbow requiring level 90 Ranged to wield. It has a main hand counterpart which is able to fire Ascension bolts, made with 90 Fletching. The parts to make an Off-hand ascension crossbow are dropped by legiones in the Monastery of Ascension.

The crossbow is made by taking one each of the six Ascension signets (Ascension signet I, II, III, IV, V, VI) along with a dragon crossbow and 100 ascension shards to Ocellus outside the monastery. After creating the main hand Ascension crossbow, 100 more ascension shards are required to convert it into an off-hand crossbow. It can be converted back to its main hand version for another 100 shards.

Assuming one obtained each signet on the 50th kill, it would cost, on average, 121,433,523 coins to create an Off-hand ascension crossbow.

It degrades in combat like drygore weaponry, having 60,000 charges (but loses 2 per hit, giving a minimum time of 5 hours of combat) until it must be repaired by Bob for 2,000,000 coins or a lower amount on your armour stand depending on your Smithing level.

Players on a budget may consider dual-wielding an Ascension crossbow with tier 88 off-hand Elite Death Lotus darts. When first attacking a target, the main hand weapon is used and thus its ammo is lost far more often than the off-hand ammo. This combination negates the high upfront cost of the Off-hand ascension crossbow and greatly reduces the loss of indirectly expensive/untradeable Elite Death Lotus darts while sacrificing a small amount of damage; you do not lose any accuracy due to it being based on your main-hand weapon only.

The crossbow can be combined with perfect chitin to create a kalphite repriser.

Repair cost[edit | edit source]

The base repair cost of the Off-hand ascension crossbow when completely degraded to 0.0% item charge is 2,000,000 coins. It can be repaired by:

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

If it is only partially degraded, then 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 Off-hand ascension crossbow can be recolored with dyes from Treasure trails for purely cosmetic purposes. A warning message is given when attempting to dye a plain Off-hand ascension crossbow.

Once the dye is applied, the Off-hand ascension crossbow becomes permanently untradeable.
