EDIT: RIP Twisted Bow prices.


It is still balanced so that it is the best thing to use by some way. On Zilyana for example, it was just quite needlessly far above what other weapons could offer.

Good to see you guys are taking care in how much DPS you give something. Will it still be the best DPS against all the monsters it previously was after this change, or do you know?


It'll no longer be effective against Graardor, as it really shouldn't have been given he doesn't have a magic attack.

Dagannoth supreme is now more resistive to range attacks as a whole too.

Hmm I would rather see the Twisted Bow's independent effectiveness changed, than to buff NPC Range Defence suddenly; it could be seen as punishing to Range Based Account Builds for an item that'll be for most, completely inaccessible.


The twisted bow had a cap put in its effectiveness. Anything with a magic level of over 250, will now be treat as if it was 250.

In case of Graardor, its magic level was lowered, and its magic armour value was significantly increased - overall to any other attack, it is functionally equal. This is generally the solution that is available, if something has a high magic level, and doesn't really need it for any attacks.

In case of dagannoth supreme, he is meant to be only damaged by melee, in this case, the Twisted bow highlighted this lack of range defence, so it was increased (even the blowpipe was quite reasonable against supreme, and shouldn't have been). His rangedef is equal to say, Dagannoth rex's melee defence. Which I believe is fair to the spirit of what is intended at those bosses.
