Strykebow detail

The strykebow is the strongest shieldbow in the game outside of Daemonheim which requires 85 Ranged and 85 Defence to wield. Making a strykebow requires combining a dark bow with a wyrm scalp, which is a unique drop from the Lava strykewyrm and the WildyWyrm and will have an initial charge of 20% upon creation. The strykebow can be recharged by using dark bows on it, each restoring 20% of the bow's charges. The creation process can be undone, although only the wyrm scalp will be salvaged. The strykebow will last 10 hours in combat from full charge, and will revert to a wyrm scalp once it runs out of charges. This creation/degrade mechanic is shared between its combat triangle equivalents, the Lava whip and the staff of darkness.

It is the only shieldbow outside of Daemonheim to give a life point bonus.

The price to fully recharge the bow at current Grand Exchange prices costs 387,220, which means the hourly cost is 38,722.

Passive effect

The strykebow has a passive effect where it stores how much damage the player has received since initiating combat or since the bow was equipped—if the bow is unequipped or combat is terminated, this will reset. After performing 15 attacks (five in Legacy Mode), damage received overall will be released in the form of a second arrow shot; however there are caps which apply to this storage mechanic:

  • Below 50,000 damage, the incoming damage stored is exactly 10% of damage received.
  • At 50,000 damage, the incoming damage will be halved before it is stored, effectively storing 5% of damage received.
  • At 70,000 damage, the incoming damage will be divided by 10 before it is stored, effectively storing 1% of damage received.
  • At 80,000 damage, no more incoming damage will be stored.

This means that if the user suffered 80,000 damage before the passive effect goes in effect, it would deal an additional 6,100 damage. At 70,000 damage received, it would deal 6,000 additional damage. At 50,000 received damage, 5,000 damage.

Special attack

The strykebow has a special attack that will fire out an arrow which will trap the opponent in a column of fire requiring 25% adrenaline to use. 12.5% of the stored damage will then be released in the form of a rapid damage over time attack that will last for 4.8 seconds.
