Blisterwood stake detail

Blisterwood stakes are throwing weapons fletched from blisterwood logs and a cut diamond released as a reward along with the blisterwood staff and the blisterwood polearm from The Branches of Darkmeyer. All three weapons require 70 Fletching to make. The stakes and their off-hand counterparts require 70 Ranged. It is also possible to receive strange rocks from making these weapons. Their stats are higher than dragon darts and are on par with an abyssal whip and Karil's pistol crossbow, except it deals thrown damage rather than slashing and bolt respectively.

They are very useful for general ranging due to their speed, strength, and ability to be dual-wielded, along with the ease of obtaining them. Their primary use, however, is for dispatching vyrewatch. The stakes seem to have a certain minimum hit, although they can still miss. They only hit less when the vyre is on his/her last bit of health.

Blisterwood stakes become more effective against vyres with every 50 vyrewatch corpses burned, to a maximum of 500.[1]

Despite having no discernible metallic parts, blisterwood stakes can still be recovered by wearing one of Ava's devices.

Trivia Edit

  • Despite being essentially a dart-type weapon, blisterwood stakes are held pointing in the wrong direction (opposite from the way they would be thrown, and from the way other darts are held). This is also the case when attacking; The stakes are thrown backwards by the player, but appear to be in the correct position as a projectile.
  • These can be made on Entrana by smuggling blisterwood logs, a diamond and knife to the island and making it there.
  • Blisterwood Stakes used to not harm Vyrewatch when used with abilities, this was a bug and has been fixed. Interestingly, Binding Shot still stunned Vyrewatch as normal, and Momentum also augmented damage as usual.
