I do understand that Karil's Crossbow gives you +84 on range attack and the Rune Crossbow gives you +90 on range attack, but which of them hits faster?

Also, which would you prefer if you were pking?

Karil's is faster, and 2h.

Rune xbow is slower and 1h.


I wouldn't use either as my main weapon, though people have used both.  It's just a matter of personal preference.

Personally, I prefer the rune one for Pk'ing in love level single, since it has big hits, but is slow, and I like the Karil's one when PK'ing deeper with ancient magic, because that one is way faster and is like 99% accuracy.
K, I changed my avatar, but I'm still going to be a douche.

Karils is 2h and the bolts aren't recoverable, even with accumulator.  Rune c'bow is more accurate and has stronger ammo and is 1h, but it makes for more awkward switches to ko weapons (if you are using them) in edge.

Karil's XBow is very fast, hits high, and is very fun to pk with.

Have any questions? PM me.

Although karil's c'bow looks fun to pk with in the end a rune c'bow with D bolts will help you more, especially if your hybriding  ;-)

Well if you are using KO weapons such as D Claws or Ags use Karil's Xbow, but if you are just tanking then use the Rune XBow.

I'm sorry but that is the stupidest comment ever, considering karils crossbow protects over claws.

I'm pretty sure on pvp servers the protected item is based on G.E value, so that's not true.

I'd say K-Bow if you're wanting some nice quick combos and you have a KO weapon, but Rune X-Bow if it's your only weapon being used.

No, JaGEx has their own way to determine how items are protected. So yes, Karils does protect over Dragon Claws. The same way that Guthan's Plateskirt protects over whip.

Have any questions? PM me.

Rune c'box and karil x bow both have their good and bad sides, and they have a really "depends" type of uses.

I personaly love Karil bow though, it hits rapid 20+'s and if you combine that with poisoned Morrigan jav special.. Its a serious overhelm.

Rune c'bow however has the lovely d bolt special.. And other special bolts. Works great as a sudden KO as its self, and good with veng to hit heavy damage.


I'd personally pick karil bow over rune c'bow any day, just cause of the speed. If you have a high ranged level, you can combo your opponents food down so fast its not even funny, for your opponent that is.

Feel free to pk with a partyhat in a +1 world, after all, youll protect it! ^_^

In all seriousness I'd say go for the rune crossbow. I enjoy the k bow a lot, but its hits are more predictable but with an r cbow and dragon bolts you can hit 50+. Plus, if it means anything you get to keep some of your bolts where in a k bow you lose them when you shoot them.

I personally think the rune crossbow is better especially with emerald/diamond or dragon bolts (enchanted of course) but karils x-bow is really fun to pk with for some reason. Think of the x-bow like a machine gun in how fast it shoots and it's perfect if your going to switch to a dds or ags for a ko.

Ill go for karils..But id say Rune cbow for single and karils for multi or ko with dds

Edit. I think Rune cbow and maul is quite good.

Not all of us are welfare.... *makes a mental note never to use karils with claws*


It totally depends on what you are going for. If you are only using one weapon, Rune Xbow.Karils is good if you have maybe some morrigans javelins or a gmaul to ko with.

Use Silverlight, same stats as Iron Longsword but you only need 1 Attack to wield it.

They are really nothing alike besides both having Crossbow in the name.

Karil's is fast, moderately powered, and has 1 type of ammo.

Rune Crossbow is mediocre speed, huge hits, and several bolts could be getting shot at you.

Karil's fits the "main weapon" mold perfectly, while a Rune Crossbow is more of a finisher weapon or a weapon for Tanking.

depends on what type of account you're going to use it on , i prefer karils x-bow above any other range weapon
on my pure,then again i would never use on one my main because it would be inaccurate on rune/barrows.

If you're looking for speed & a weapon that can combo with melee weapons/magic go for Xbow
if you're looking for big hits go with rune Crossbow
