Hi all,

So I just came back on runescape, and I was wondering which weapon to take for my ranged as my main weapon. Should I use:

1) royal crossbow + ascension bolts ? (how doles damage stack up ? )
2) chaotic crossbow main hand and shadow glaive off-hand
3) shadow glaives both hands
4) Zaryte ? eventhough it is weaker in accuracy and damge, and distance ?

I am too poor to buy ascensions, and i don't have enough tokens for duo chaotics =/

Thank you for any advice you can give me !

ps: i like to boss a lot in ranged =/

This forum is better suited for what you want. "When history witnesses a great change, Razgriz reveals itself... first, as a dark demon. As a demon, it uses its power to rain death upon the land, and then it dies. However, after a period of slumber, Razgriz returns, this time, as a great hero"

Dual Shadow glaives are best out of those option, all options have the same damage but the glaives offer the higher T90 accuracy which is ideal for bossing.

Not sure how other options not listed, such as Decimation fare with T87 dmg/acc vs the shadow glaives though however. Maybe someone else could answer that one.

The damage of the ammunition you use is capped by the tier of the weapon you are using, so if you are using ascension bolts (T90) with a royal crossbow (T80), the damage output will be T80.

- Decimation [30m, level 87]

- Superior Morrigan's throwing axe [5m, level 88] & Off-hand Shadow glaive [4m, level 80]

- Dual Shadow glaives [10m, level 90 acc & level 80 dmg]

- Royal crossbow [<2m, level 80]

In many situations, Decimation would be your best option.

also, if you decide to use royal crossbow use royal bolts, ascension bolts scales to tier of bow (aka if using royal crossbow they work as t80 bolts, if using rune for whatever reason they work as t50 etc.) What colour does a smurf go when you choke it?
