This talk page is for discussing the Royal crossbow page.


Stats!!! Get some stats on this guy fast please so I can know if its gonna be worth the 30mill I am sure it will skyrocket too.Gormagon 18:13, May 29, 2012 (UTC)

> Its untradeable apparently

I think the royal crossbow also requires 60 summoning indirectly, Because it is forged from the flames of the QBD wich requires 60 summoning to fight. Vosje 18:45, May 29, 2012 (UTC)

Are the stats confirmed?

CCB vs RoyalCB Edit

Should this page be created? Given the stat difference, maybe a comparisson page? Still need studies with the hits for the weapon. Apparently the maxed hit in pvp situation with the coral ccb is only 60, making the CCB much more effective.

CallumRhysEvans 22:04, May 29, 2012 (UTC)

What is a CCB? Dragon longsword Cire04 TalkAttack 22:07, May 29, 2012 (UTC)

Chaotic crossbow - Rather than creating an entire new page I've just added the posts in on each page.

CallumRhysEvans 22:14, May 29, 2012 (UTC)

There we go, that makes much more sense, lol-- Dragon longsword Cire04 TalkAttack 22:16, May 29, 2012 (UTC)

CCB is better in PvP situations. Someone can update Chaotic crossbow

CallumRhysEvans 23:29, May 29, 2012 (UTC)

its not the most accurate range weapon in the game, a sighted magic long has 140-<unsigned

^I just added that :) Gormagon 12:16, May 30, 2012 (UTC)


Can anyone get a better picture of the crossbow, the current one {shown in worn equipment} is a bit confusing - could it be at a diagonal? Steel heraldic helm (Asgarnia) Ant103010 Talk 03:28, May 31, 2012 (UTC)

Factual correction Edit

Im somewhat doubtful that the bleed hits are 8 seconds appart, surely they must be a whole number of game ticks so 7.8 or 8.4 appart.

Degrades? Edit

I heard that this crossbow degrades? 23:58, May 31, 2012 (UTC)

I'd like this to be clarified too. The examine suggests that the crossbow need to sustain a hit from the QBD fire breath attack, where as the text on the article suggests it needs recharging every now and then, but without any mention of how long. cqm  14:17, June 1, 2012 (UTC)
It does degrade. Seems to me like it's the standard 10 hours. Iascan 01:23, June 2, 2012 (UTC)

Corp damage cap. Edit

I dont think it is a glitch, because if youi think about it the crossbow has a max of ~130, so when the non spear damage reduction is applied it would appear as if the damage has been capped as it is in pvp.Jammy Duel 13:59, June 6, 2012 (UTC)

Repair Information Edit

I haven't personally used the Royal Crossbow (though I intend to), but the part in this article that touches on repairs is...completely unclear. I don't think a "free of charge" repair should require all four pieces again, so this doesn't seem right at all.

Could someone who has a better idea of how this works clean up the wording and tell people what they should actually know? Summoning-icon Zack Buster Small obelisk (POH) 19:06, June 8, 2012 (UTC)

Major Edit Edit

I've finally gotten this crossbow, and I did a large amount of testing in different situations, with different equipment and boosts, and I've added the parameters from this data into the page.

Just didn't want anyone to freak out about the page being drastically different - this was all tested and experimented with.

Lose on death Edit

does it appear under your gravestone? 16:22, June 10, 2012 (UTC)

Yes, outside of the Wilderness. (Basically, if you leave a gravestone, it will appear under it, much like a chaotic weapon.)

Reparations Edit

So this crossbow can be REcharged by either the brandishing or the rebuilding, while its initial construction will require BOTH? Also, can it be recharged while partially degraded? 03:23, June 21, 2012 (UTC)

No you can't recharge it while partially degraded. 19:04, June 23, 2012 (UTC)

XP Edit

Does the bleedout damage give xp? Nothing special here. (talk) 01:41, September 9, 2012 (UTC)


With the EoC it seems that my Royal Crossbow doesn't degrade anymore. It was at 96% when the update came out and it's still 96%, even though I've been using it a lot in combat since the update. To me it looks like it isn't degrading, which is odd because the Check State option still exists and tells me it's at 96%. Does anyone know more about this? --Amarian 08:08, November 25, 2012 (UTC)

It most likely does not degrade through the use of abilities, is my best bet on why it would still be at 96%. Try using it on autoattack for a while and see if it has any impact on its condition. 02:38, November 28, 2012 (UTC)

That's a very good thought! Will try out momentum sometime, it'll be really interesting seeing how it works out. --Amarian 10:17, November 28, 2012 (UTC)
   Any new information on whether or not it degrades? 18:34, December 29, 2012 (UTC)
It no longer degrades. 04:26, December 30, 2012 (UTC)
I think it jumps straight from 100% to 0% after 10 hours. Still not sure just got mine yesterday. Cat maskMaceyPantsOvergrown cat (white) 04:49, December 30, 2012 (UTC)
I got my crossbow after the EoC came out, it's now at 96%. It seems to not degrade while using abilities, but definitely degrades with auto-attacks. Furah (talk) 02:59, March 11, 2013 (UTC)
I use the Momentum Ability (meaning I nearly always use Auto-attacks) and I'm sure it lasts much longer now. I've been fighting Black Dragons long enough for my Karil's Armour to go from 100% to 25%. although I didn't catch the RCB's %, it is currently on 74% (Wild guess it was on 90% before I started), if it truly was 10 hours of combat, even if it was at 100% by the time my karil's had degraded to 25% is would most likely be at 40%, not 74%. I'd also like to note that ever since I got the crossbow, I've gotten around 1.6m xp with it, and it's just at 74%. Baptiejames (talk) 09:21, August 16, 2013 (UTC)

Takes 50 hours to degrade Edit

According to my calculations, the crossbow lasts for nearly 50 hours of continuous combat. I just did waterfiends for about 5 hours 40 minutes (not including banking). I started at a fresh, fully repaired, crossbow. After the 5.666 hours of continuous Waterfiends, I checked the crossbow to discover it was at 88%.

5*60 + 40 = 340 minutes

340 min / 12 percent = 28.333 minutes per percent

28.333 minutes per percent * 100 percent = 2,833.333 minutes

2,833.333 minutes / 60 minutes per hour = 47.222 hours

That's a lot higher than the expected 10 hours listed in the article. A lot longer than chaotic equipment's lifespan. You must also understand that this was 5hr 40min of intense, uninterrupted combat. I was also often in multi-way combat (2-3 waterfiends). I was also using abilities the whole time (not Momentum, the regular ranged abilities).

What do you guys think? Would anyone care to conduct a similar experiment, perhaps while using momentum?

Nootropic (talk) 04:16, January 20, 2013 (UTC)

While I don't have a Royal c'bow to check; it might be due to your usage of abilities. At least, if degrading reacts the same as rune/ammo use. If you use abilities, magic doesn't consume runes and range doesn't use ammo; so perhaps degrading of weapons works the same way? I was told Crystal bows also keep their charges much longer when using ablities (again haven't tested this myself). 11:29, January 20, 2013 (UTC)

Recharging Edit

I have noticed that my Royal Crossbow has jumped from <50% back to 100% charge during the QBD fight. I am not sure if this was automatic, or whether it was because the "brandish" option might have appeared. I have the weapon assigned to my quickbar to allow changing of items so it is possible this triggered the recharge. Any ideas? 16:14, January 21, 2013 (UTC)

Smithing requirement Edit

Can the smithing part be assisted? 13:58, January 23, 2013 (UTC)Fire Atlas4201.83.133.172 13:58, January 23, 2013 (UTC)

About requirementsEdit

Just to correct something; 70 smithing is required to brandish the crossbow at QBD's flames, it is NOT optional (corrected this already). 13:39, July 14, 2013 (UTC)

Is it possible to have 2 at a time?Edit

I was wondering if it was possible to have 2 or more at a time, if it degrades, I really wouldn't want to go back and try to reforge it. I personally do not think it's possible, correct me if I'm wrong. Spent 600K on the parts and tried to kill young grotworms for a while with no luck of a coral crossbow.

Wilderness coin drop.Edit

500,000 coins upon death to the killer in the Wilderness? This is a complete lie. I'm a passionate Pvper and have only ever gotten 5,000 before the update and now, after the update I only get 100,000 coins. Change this ASAP.
