no ranged bonus[edit source]

The update didn't raise the range bonus on this xbow :( darn it.. Red partyhat.pngDreadnoughttalk 08:13, 22 June 2007 (UTC)

I don't think that the speed is accurate. Base says that Karil's Crossbow has six points of speed, not five.

Also Called[edit source]

Is it also called Karil's x-bow or cbow?-- 18:37, 23 September 2007 (UTC)

Yep. Go ahead and add that.Yellow partyhat.png Ilyas Talk Contribs 18:41, 23 September 2007 (UTC)

No longer aplicable[edit source]

"It is recommended that players do not repair this item when it is fully damaged as the resale value minus the repair cost is less than if the player were to use the spell High Alchemy on it."

Ge price - (12'th july) 278k High alch price - 96k repair price - 100k This makes it a whopping 82k more to repair it then sell. 19:17, 12 July 2009 (UTC)

Stop comparing to crossbows[edit source]

This item is a shortbow with the model of a crossbow. It's two handed, has a speed of 6, has comparable (but higher) stats to bows, and fires ammunition of comprable (but higher) power to arrows. Every article on the wiki tries to compare it to the rune crossbow and steel bolts. This needs to stop, as it is far more relevant to compare it to a magic shortbow and rune arrows. It is better than both.

"Due to its 2-handed nature, firing speed and the ratio of its ranged attack to its ammunition's ranged strength, some players regard Karil's crossbow to not really be a crossbow at all, but rather the most powerful shortbow in the game "in disguise"."

Obviously we, the wiki editers, have recognized this fact, but have made no attempt to actualize this.

I'm not saying that we should completely eliminate the comparison to crossbows, but its current state is so unstandardized. No other shortbows are regularly compared to crossbows, so why should this one? I think it might be of global importance for the ranged articles if we added crossbow comparisons to the bow pages, and bow comparisons to the crossbow pages. How does the magic shortbow stack up compared to the rune crossbow? This should be looked into or the Karil's Shortbow should be regarded as an equivalent to a shortbow.

Wikis are about standardization. Let's get to work. 03:14, March 4, 2011 (UTC)

one-hand and/or two-hand version?[edit source]

I was wondering is this is a page for both the one-hand and the two-hand version, which the ranged weapons-page states there is. Thanks ;) {{SUBST:#ifexist:{{subst:Signatures/Leon Art}}|[[User:Leon Art|Leon Art]] ([[User talk:Leon Art|talk]])}} (talk) 13:25, December 10, 2012 (UTC)

Buy Limit[edit source]

Karil's items have a linked buy limit of 1 item per 4 hours.  If you purchase one Karil's item (Karil's crossbow, Karil's coif, Karil's top, or Karil's skirt) You can not purchase any other item for 4 hours. Westseen (talk) 18:27, March 10, 2013 (UTC)
