How to Get / Where to Find the Longbow

 




Notes

  • Give to Frampt to receive 50 souls.
  • This bow is classified as a Long bow. It fires slower than short bows.
  • The Long Bow is a larger version of the short bow, has slightly higher stat requirements to wield. Very useful for luring things out and killing strong foes from a safe distance.
  • Fun Fact: when you draw the bow the string does not actually get pulled back (xbox 360 confirmed ) (the bow is fully drawn in PTDE)
  • Demon's souls version: Different in apperance and has a range of 60 instead of 50.

          Probably a long shot at this time, but has anyone infused the bow with magic/fire/lightening/etc? is it any good? giving up the s scaling? does the arrow gain the property?
