Diamond dragon bolts (e) detail.png

Diamond dragon bolts (e) are diamond dragon bolts that are enchanted via the Enchant Crossbow Bolt (Diamond) spell by a player with 57 Magic. The spell enchants 10 bolts per cast, and uses 2 law runes, 1 cosmic rune, and 10 earth runes.

Enchanted diamond dragon bolts have a chance of triggering the Armour Piercing effect. This increases the max hit by 15% and ignores your opponents defence and your own accuracy for the hit it activates on.[1][2][3] A tinkling sound can be heard when this activates.

If the player has completed the hard Kandarin Diary, there is a 10% increase of the likelihood that the special effect of an enchanted bolt will occur, giving enchanted diamond bolts an overall 11% chance of the special effect activating.[4] This effect is always active regardless if the headgear is equipped or not.
