Ava's attractor is a reward from the Animal Magnetism quest. It randomly generates iron arrows directly into the inventory. This device is actually just a undead chicken with a magnet in the back. The attactor can be upgraded to Ava's accumulator when the player reaches level 50 Ranged for 75 steel arrows; if the player already has 50 Ranged when they receive it, it will already be upgraded. Its appearance is blue when first received (and if the player does not have 50 Ranged), however once upgraded, its colour changes to green.
Upon death the device does not remain underneath your gravestone. The player must then return to Ava and purchase another for 999 gold.
Players can purchase multiple attractors/accumulators from Ava.
The device only works when worn in the cape slot. In addition, if players are wearing metal armour the device is unable to function properly and they will receive a message: "Your armour interferes with Ava's device.", instead of collecting arrows. However, there is no interference when wearing Fremennik armour, a Bandos chestplate, Varrock armour, a granite body, Initiate armour and Proselyte armour, Anti-dragon shield, Black armour (T), Sacred clay armour, Rune boots, Barrow Gloves, Rune Defender, or Dragon plateskirt.
As of 4 January 2007, the device will collect most of the players' own arrows as they fire them, saving them from having to pick them up, but it cannot do this if there is something in the way. When it is working properly, the player's ammunition should often not be consumed.
In addition, the player may bring the attractor to Nomad in Soul Wars to have it enchanted. Once enchanted, the ability of the device to retrieve lost arrows will be passed on to the player's Soul Wars cape. As of 17 November 2009, the accumulator can also be taken to Lanthus to make it pick up arrows in Castle Wars. Additionally, players have the option of preventing their device from picking up random iron items but still letting it retrieve their arrows. This can be toggled on or off by right-clicking the attractor.
