|Examine||A deadly throwing dart made of materials from the East.|
Death Lotus darts are level 85 Ranged weapons from the Eastern Lands, unlocked through player-owned ports. They are equipped in the mainhand slot. They are the strongest thrown weapons and have a range of 6 squares.
They can be created at level 92 Fletching, requiring one set of ancient bones and 25 ascension shards, granting 250 experience and creating 25 darts. As with all craftable items in the workshop, boosts will not work when making them. They are made at the workbench just outside the workshop, at the last option "thrown weapons".
The effective cost of Death Lotus darts depends on the price of scrimshaws. Based on the current most expensive scrimshaw, the darts thus have an effective cost of 12,061 coins per dart.
One strategy players may use is dual-wielding an ascension crossbow with off-hand death lotus darts. When first attacking a target, the main hand weapon is used and thus its ammo is lost far more often than the off-hand ammo. Therefore, this combination negates the high upfront cost of the off-hand ascension crossbow and greatly reduces the loss of indirectly expensive/untradeable Death Lotus darts while sacrificing a relatively small amount of damage. Thus, the initial cost will be cheaper than using only ascension crossbows, while the cost over time will be costlier than using dual ascensions.
