Ascension crossbow detail
The ascension crossbow is a crossbow requiring level 90 Ranged to wield. It has an off-hand counterpart and is able to fire all bolts including Ascension bolts, made with 90 Fletching.
Ascension crossbow concept art

Concept art for the Ascension Crossbow.

Obtaining one yourself (without trading with another player or through the Grand Exchange) requires defeating Legiones in the level-81-Slayer dungeon Monastery of Ascension located northwest of Oo'glog, east of Mobilising Armies.

The crossbow is made by taking one each of the six ascension signets dropped by the legiones (Ascension signet I, Ascension signet II, Ascension signet III, Ascension signet IV, Ascension signet V, Ascension signet VI), along with a dragon crossbow and 100 ascension shards to Ocellus outside the monastery. It can be converted to the off-hand ascension crossbow for another 100 shards.

Assuming one obtained each signet on the 64th kill, it would cost 131,629,441 coins to create an ascension crossbow. If you do a co-op slayer tasks only one key is needed for entry for both party members. A pop-up confirmation will appear for the second party member before entering the lair. When the ascension boss is killed the party member who dealt the most damage will receive the drop regardless of who opened the door with a keystone. A signet, if dropped, will only be given to the party member who has received drop. The other party member will be left with no loot, therefore it is recommended to solo the ascension bosses for signets.

Only the mainhand dragon crossbow will work; neither the off-hand nor the 2-handed bow are accepted by Ocellus.

It degrades in the same manner as drygore weaponry, lasting for 10 hours until it must be repaired by Bob for 2 million coins or a lower amount on your armour stand depending on your Smithing level.

The crossbow and its off-hand counterpart both provide full protection against the four main factions in the God Wars Dungeon, in the same manner as the Zaryte bow, Nex armour, and Shard of Zaros. However, they do not protect against Zaros followers in the Ancient Prison.

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