Mithril javelin detail

Javelins are a type of Ranged ammunition used by light and heavy ballistae. Javelins can be fletched by combining javelin heads with javelin shafts, requiring a minimum of 3 Fletching. Like arrows, they can be poisoned.

Javelins can also be obtained by buying them from the Ranging Guild, the Void Knight Archery Store, or from Oobapohk's Javelin Store after completion of Monkey Madness II.

Javelins are not attracted by Ava's devices and they always break upon hitting a target.

  • Before the release of Monkey Madness II, javelins were a type of equippable thrown ranged weapon, and had the highest attack range and damage but the lowest attack speed of all thrown weapon types. In addition, they could not be fletched, making them relatively rare, as the NPCs that drop javelins dropped them in small amounts.
  • Their stats were also much weaker before their conversion to an ammunution slot item, as seen below:
Type Ranged Attack Ranged Strength
Bronze javelin Bronze +5 +6
Iron javelin Iron +8 +10
Steel javelin Steel +12 +12
Mithril javelin Mithril +17 +18
Adamant javelin Adamant +24 +28
Rune javelin Rune +38 +42
