|Examine||Enchanted Ruby tipped Adamantite Crossbow Bolts.|
Enchanted ruby bolts are adamant bolts tipped with ruby bolt tips and enchanted with the spell Enchant Crossbow Bolt (Ruby) by a player with level 49 Magic. The spell enchants 10 ruby bolts at a time and uses 1 blood rune, 1 cosmic rune, and 5 fire runes.
Enchanted ruby bolts are given the special power Blood forfeit which gives the bolts a chance of removing 20% of the opponent's current life points but at the cost of 10% of the player's current life points. It does not work if the player cannot spare the life points. Note that it removes 20% of the target's current life points and 10% of the attacker's current life points - for example, even if the target has 750 total life points, if attacker has reduced its life points down to 20 life points and the ruby bolt (e)'s special occurs, it will only inflict 4 life points (20% of 20). The same is true if the attacker is not at maximum life points. A long, shrieking noise could be heard when this activates.
Note: The chance of it occurring increases as you complete the Seer's Tasks.
This enchantment is especially effective against opponents with a high number of life points, such as black dragons. These bolts are most often used in boss-hunting, commonly against God Wars Dungeon bosses such as Kree'arra, Commander Zilyana, especially Nex and the Queen Black Dragon.
Note that these bolts require a crossbow of level 60 to fire. The addition of gem bolt tips and enchantment both add +10 levels each over the base requirement of 40 ranging from the adamant bolts.
The previous highest hit recorded whilst using enchanted ruby bolts was for 2000 on a Decaying Avatar during the Nomad's Requiem quest. With the release of Ritual of the Mahjarrat the max hit recorded has gone up to 3000 on the Ice demons.
Other UsesEditRuby bolts (e) are also used against the Corporeal Beast with a high ranged level. However, because of the beast's damage cap, the attack will only hit up to a maximum of 10000, instead of the theoretical 40000 life points. Other opponents with a very large number of life points against which the effect is useful include the avatars of Creation and Destruction from Soul Wars, as well as the Decaying avatar and Nomad from the quest Nomad's Requiem with a maximum life of 750 instead of the theoretical 2000 life points. In addition the new Queen Black Dragon can take up to 1000 life points damage from this effect.These are also good for Ice strykewyrms, which have 3000 life points. They may also be used in certain situations against a Tormented Demon. In theory, one could hit up to 6000 life points on Nex with the special effect of these bolts, which would make killing her much easier and could make trips as short as a few minutes, however, due to damage on her being capped at 500, this would be impossible to accomplish.
