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.

When a bola is thrown as an auto-attack, it binds the NPC or player for around 10 seconds. It is possible to miss the bind as with other attacks from a weapon, although the bola seems to have high accuracy. Auto-attacks and abilities using a bola deal no damage. Interestingly, Fragmentation Shot always binds the target if it does not miss, but all other ranged abilities (excluding binding abilities) do not apply the bind.

Anticipation and Freedom will work against bolas.

Prior to the Evolution of Combat, bolas held other players for 15 seconds, and the length would be halved if the enemy player was using Protect from Ranged or Deflect Missiles, and halved again if they were wielding or carrying a slashing weapon.

Thrown bolas cannot be retrieved from the ground or 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.
