Vintner Guard Crossbowers are the ranged units of the Vintner Guards. Instead of a melee weapon, these are equipped with a powerful Iron Crossbow.


Vintner Guard Crossbowers spawn throughout the land of Dorwinion both day and night. For a crossbower to spawn, the block must be a grass block, and as such they will not spawn underground. They are also somewhat rarer than the standard Vintner Guards.

They will spawn as a result of the event 'Vineyard Defence' that can be triggered by stealing Grapes from a Dorwinion Vineyard.

Behaviour Edit

Crossbowers will wander randomly, their weapons down by their sides. They will not attack players with 0 or above alignment with Dorwinion, but upon sighting an enemy player or NPC, they will fire volleys of bolts at their targets. Owing to their usage of a crossbow, their attack is significantly stronger than most ranged units, making them tough opponents.

They will also warn players who attempt to steal grapes from the vineyards. If a player takes too many grapes, they will be attacked, regardless of alignment.


These units can be yours to hire from a Vintner Guard Captain for 200 Dorwinion alignment and 60 coins.


These crossbowers drop a bone on death, and one or two crossbow bolts. They can also drop their iron crossbow or a piece of their armour on rare occasions.
