Description[edit | edit source]
The longbow is a refinement of the shortbow, designed to increase the range and power of an arrow strike. The stave portion of a longbow is nearly as tall as the archer, and can reach over six feet.
Craft Weapon[edit | edit source]
A longbow is made from a longbow mold and 2 wooden planks (Basic wood). Exotic wooden materials can be used to make a more powerful longbow:
- Zalantar: Mighty +2
- Shederran: Mighty +4
- Duskwood: Mighty +6 and 40% weight reduction (item weighs only 60% of base weight)
The base Craft Weapon skill requirement for crafting a longbow is 2. This will allow crafting a longbow of basic wood. If one of the exotic woods is used, the base DC is increased by the material DC modifier.
Note that all materials used to craft a weapon must be of the same type. Crafting a bow out of one Wood plank and one Duskwood plank will not work.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- Only Solonor Thelandira and Shevarash favor the longbow.
- Ranged ammunition launching weapons usually are enchanted with an attack bonus, rather than an enchantment bonus, in the Original Campaign.
