Bolas detail

Bolas are made using items gained from the Jadinko Lair. They can be made from 2 excrescence and a mutated vine, requiring 87 Fletching and giving 50 experience. They require a Ranged level of 76 to use. Even though Fletching is an assistable skill, Bolas cannot be made via the Assist System.

Bolas will deal no damage to an enemy; they only restrain them. The effectiveness of this restraint depends on the target.

  • On another player, Bolas will hold the other player for 15 seconds. If the other player is using Protect or Deflect Missiles, the time is halved. If the player is wielding a slash weapon or has a knife in their inventory, the time would also be halved, and the two effects stack, cutting down the bind time to a minimum of 5 seconds.
  • On NPCs, the Bolas generally hold them in place for only 10 seconds, but are highly accurate. All ranged abilities will cause a stun/bind when used with Bolas equipped.

If you are far enough away (11 squares) the target can move again.

Bolas are consumable weapons and are rarely retrievable; they cannot be picked up by Ava's Device.

  • These are based on the real world throwing weapon of the same name. Similar to the bolas ability to restrain a target, the real world bolas are designed to entangle an animal's legs.
  • There appears to be a metallic, hexagonal ring holding the bolas, despite that no metal is used in the process of making these.
  • On the day of the release when making bolas using the Assist system, the player making the bolas would receive the experience instead of the one assisting.
  • Bolas are the slowest Fletching item to make, not considering the time it takes to collect the untradeable component.
