Dark bow (green) detail

The green dark bow is the second most powerful shieldbow in the game, behind the Strykebow and requires level 70 Ranged and 70 Defence to use. While it shoots at little over 7 seconds between attacks (double the time in between attacks (3.6 seconds) compared to other shieldbows), it shoots two arrows with each shot resulting in the same amount of arrows shot over time as any other shieldbow.

It is obtainable by purchasing the green penance egg paint from Commander Connad for 50 points in any role. Once purchased, players can recolour an unlimited number of dark bows and abyssal whips. The dark bow itself is a drop unique to dark beasts, which require level 90 Slayer to kill. When recoloured, the bow is untradeable, but can be reverted to its regular, tradeable state by using a cleaning cloth on it.

The dark bow is classified as a shieldbow, so wielding it allows the use of abilities requiring a shield.

Special attackEdit

The dark bow has a special attack called Descent of Darkness which hits twice with doubled damage, or tripled if using dark or dragon arrows. The special attack uses 65% adrenaline. Upon using it, no ammo is used. Note: when using dark or dragon arrows the spec is called Descent of Dragons.

Other usesEdit

The dark bow can be used for the Archery competition minigame. It can also shoot as fast as a player can shoot the target and close the score window, allowing the dark bow to be just as fast as any other bow in this minigame.

It is not possible to use this bow for barbarian firemaking. Attempting to light a fire using a dark bow will prompt the message, "The innate darkness of the bow sucks all the heat from your Firemaking attempt. You realize that this type of bow is useless for firelighting."

TriviaEdit

  • Before the Evolution of Combat, this weapon had two special attacks, these were as follows:
    • Descent of Darkness inflicted up to 30% more damage and did a minimum of 50 damage per arrow (25 on players).
    • Descent of Dragons inflicted up to 50% more damage when using dragon arrows and does a minimum of 50 damage per arrow (80 on players).
  • On 8 October 2013 with the release of elder bows, the dark bow's Ranged level requirement was increased from 60 to 70, and the damage and accuracy bonuses were also increased. This was done to preserve the dark bow's title of best shieldbow in the game.
  • On 2 March 2015, a level 70 Defence requirement was added to the bow.
