Forever, or not?[edit source]

If you buy it do you have it forever or do you need to pay 8 tickets each time you lose it? I mean I would think the ammo cost would be enough... otherwise idk how this is worth it.

Not Worth It[edit source]

I have not yet personally used the Ballista, but by using all of the information that I know and my (expert) skills of analysis, I have concluded that it is NOT worth your hard-earned tickets to buy the parts for a Ballista. Here's why:

There are 4 parts, each costing 2, so that's 8 tickets so far, and then you need to buy at least 1 pack of (100) bolts, costing 4 more, for a total of 12 tickets. You'll be using the Ballista for a single game and then it's gone.

And for what? You paid 12 tickets to win 1 game, and earn 2 tickets? And sometimes if the enemy is overwhelming, your team might not even win. Your enemies can even destroy the Ballista in the battle and remove it from the game before the game is over.

In my opinion, I don't think this is worth buying. Somebody, PLEASE prove me wrong or else JaGeX will need to come out with a patch that makes the Ballista overpowered (like it should be) if you're going to be spending so many tickets on 1 game.

Actually, the parts can be picked up when they're destroyed, so you actually don't lose anything (except the ammo when you use it up). In my opinion, it's an okay weapon. Disk of returning.png Malcolm33 Disk of returning.png 13:18, September 1, 2010 (UTC)
