Mithril bolts detail

Mithril bolts are crossbow bolts that may be shot by any crossbow.

Mithril bolts may be created by members. First, a player must smith unfinished mithril bolts by using a mithril bar on an anvil while carrying a hammer. This requires a Smithing level of 53, and for each mithril bar that player smiths they will get 10 unfinished mithril bolts and 50 Smithing experience. Then a player must attach flights to the bolts. Attaching flights to each bolt requires a Fletching level of 54 and 1 feather, granting 5 Fletching experience per bolt. They are also a somewhat common drop from Chaos Druids.

Mithril bolts may be tipped with sapphire, emerald, or a grapple. To tip the bolts with sapphire, a player must have a Fletching level of 56 and use sapphire bolt tips with the mithril bolts, granting 4.7 Fletching experience for each sapphire bolt tip attached and making the mithril bolts into sapphire bolts. To tip the bolts with emerald, a player must have a Fletching level of 58 and use emerald bolt tips with the mithril bolts, granting 5.5 Fletching experience for each emerald bolt tip attached and making the mithril bolts into emerald bolts. To tip a bolt with a grapple, a player must use a mithril grapple tip on the mithril bolt, granting 11 Fletching experience, and also a rope, making a mithril grapple.

These bolts are commonly used for mid-level PvP and general monster killing and/or training, as they have proven to be cheap yet effective. However, they are not recommended for upper-level player killing, as other bolts, although more costly, have a higher maximum hit and a higher average damage.
