The strykebow is a level 85 shieldbow. It is made by combining a dark bow with a wyrm scalp, costing 13,534,872; the newly created strykebow will have an initial charge of 20%. The creation process can be undone, although only the wyrm scalp will be salvaged.
A fully-charged strykebow degrades for 60,000 charges of combat (but loses 2 charges per hit, so has a minimum duration of 5 hours of combat) before reverting to a wyrm scalp. It can be repaired by 20% by using a dark bow on it - a full recharge costs 387,220.
It is the only shieldbow outside of Daemonheim to give a life point bonus.

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. Every ability hit counts 1 and every auto attack counts 3. Missed hits and bleed hits do not count, although the application of the bleed itself will count. After this counter hits 15 (so 15 ability hits, 5 auto attacks or anywhere between), 40% of the damage stored will be released in the form of a second arrow shot; however there are caps which apply to this storage mechanic: The higher the amount of damage stored, the less damage is absorbed. Exact values are currently unknown.
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. 50% (35% in pvm) of the stored damage will then be released in the form of a rapid damage over time attack that will last for 2.4 seconds (5 hits total, 1 every 0.6 seconds).
