The crystal harpoon is an item used in Fishing. It requires 71 Fishing and Song of the Elves to create and use, with 50 Agility and 70 Attack required to wield it. It possesses the same special attack as the dragon harpoon, has a 35% faster catch rate compared to a regular harpoon and 12.5% faster compared to dragon harpoon.

Players can create a crystal harpoon via a singing bowl by combining a dragon harpoon, 120 crystal shards and a crystal tool seed. Doing so requires level 76 Smithing and Crafting to sing the crystal (the levels can be boosted), and grants 6,000 experience in both skills. If the player does not meet the Smithing and Crafting requirements, they can have Conwenna or Reese sing the crystal for them for an extra 60 crystal shards, for a total of 180.

A dangerous death in PvP causes the crystal harpoon to revert to a dragon harpoon, which will be then dropped for the killer. All crystal shards will be lost should this happen.

Special attack[edit | edit source]

The crystal harpoon has a special attack, Fishstabber, that provides a visible +3 boost to Fishing. This consumes 100% of the player's special attack energy, though it cannot be used without the level 70 Attack and 50 Agility requirement to wield the harpoon.

Degradation[edit | edit source]

When created, the crystal harpoon starts off at 10,000 charges and degrades like all crystal equipment, with one charge being depleted for each fish that is caught using it; once the harpoon's charges have been fully depleted, it can still be used for fishing, but will act like a dragon harpoon. Wearing an elven signet while using crystal equipment will provide a 10% chance to not consume charges.

In order to add charges to the crystal harpoon, crystal shards must be used on it (this can be done before it is inactive as well), with each shard granting 100 charges, up to a maximum of 20,000. Dismantling a crystal harpoon will return the dragon harpoon and crystal tool seed to the player and doing so will lose all crystal shard charges that were previously loaded.
