  • Note: Bows can only be fired while held with both hands.
  • Despite bows only being usable while two-handing, the listed strength requirements still apply.
  • Different Arrows will alter the range and base damage of bows.
  • The best arrows to use for bows depend on what type of bow you're using
    • Fire arrows - Will give you the highest damage on Chaos or Fire bows
    • Moonlight Arrows - Will give you the highest damage with Enchanted/Magic and Divine/Occult bows
    • Large Arrows - Will give you the highest damage with a normal +15 or +5 crystal bows
  • Bows have two categories: short and long. Longbows (Long, Black) tend to have more range and better scaling, but fire slower than Shortbows (Short, Composite, Darkmoon).
