Don't use T90/85 arrows then?

Strykebow is bad to use anyway because it's T85, you're always better off with a Vengeful kiteshield.


Good luck getting planted feet onto a vengeful kiteshield.

Best in game shieldbow, so hardly a noob item. An item with a specialised use, yeah, but certainly not a noob item.

Dragon Hasta in the best Hasta in the game, with a specialised use. Doesn't mean it's not a noob weapon.

An Ascension/Blightbound Crossbow with a T90 shield or defender is better in every way.
You'll get it when you deserve it.

unless your the guy debuffing with black stone arrows at a group boss, in which case arrows are kinda hard to use with a crossbow lol

also, d hasta isnt the best hasta length 2h weapon in the game, scyth is.

you might as well say "bone spear is best bone weapon in the game so stryke bow is crap!" it makes no logical sense lol

In which case you are using T92 arrows and your SGB is hitting 100% of it's potential. The problem stated by OP is that he wants to use T85/90 arrows with a T92 bow and doesn't expect his damage to be lowered to T85/90 for some reason.

Hastae are their own class of weapon, like daggers or crossbows. Also they are 1-handed and have a 1-tile range, so a Scythe is certainly not the same type of weapon.

Bone is a material. Spear is a class.

The intention of this update was to allow for specialised arrows to be used by chargebows.

Jagex appear to have cut corners by simply favouring equipped ammo over the chargebow's own effect if any compatible ammo is equipped. This seems like a reasonable mechanic at first thought, but has the unintended consequence of nerfing some small percent of players who are using perfectly valid weapon combinations.

An argument of "just use x" is completely beside the point - the mechanic is clearly doing more than was intended by reducing the damage of a chargebow with no resultant benefit.
As such, this is a bug, already acknowledged by Jagex on Reddit and hopefully to be patched in a future update.
