The wyvern crossbow is a two-handed crossbow that requires level 85 Ranged to wield. It was released along with wyverns, which have a very rare chance of dropping the crossbow. It uses wyvern spines as ammunition, which are a common drop from wyverns. However, any bolt ammunition can be used with the crossbow, including Dragonbane bolts and Ascension bolts (which will have their damage scaled down to match wyvern spines).
It has a damage-over-time effect (appears as poison hit splats) that ramps up in damage the longer it is in combat against a specific foe. The effect takes several seconds to wear off, meaning a player can swap between several targets, ramping up the damage on several monsters if they so desire. Its damage over time effect stacks with any weapon poison.
The crossbow will degrade to a broken state after 60,000 charges of combat (but loses 2 charges per hit, so has a minimum duration of 5 hours of combat). It can be fixed by Repair NPCs such as Bob in Lumbridge, or at an armour stand in a Player-owned house. A full repair, without discounts, costs 4,125,000 coins.
