      Probably the most balanced bow in the game. It has the range of a Longbow and the speed of a Composite Bow, making it very reliable in many scenarios. But in exhange for that reliability it lacks in Scaling and the base damage is lower than even an Occult Longbow.

      But if you have the Moonlight Arrows to spend and the base requirements to wield it then look no further, you can spam enemies with Moonlight Arrows from long distances!

        its actually not bad compared to the composite bow. the scaling is not bad but the requirements are a little odd

            I can confirm for any fellow wiki-viewers that this actually has a pretty good damage, for something of its range, but it falls short of the power of the composite bow. Oh well, at least this one is pretty, and requires no strength. (works very well on my faith/intelligence/dexterity build) ... now I must take a good moment to respond to anon-guy-below-me... I can annoyance at the fan theories post on this page since it is just a weapon page, but the way you said it.... it makes you sound like a big fool, while insulting every fan theory on this entire website, and some of us happen to have the right to come to conclusions we like, and we don't have to take this sort of thing from YOU. if you have beef with what is on this page, then do something about it like submit an edit, instead of just being immature while saying someone should commit suicide over something so minor. Good day!
