NOTE: This page covers both Bow (skill) and Bow (weapon type). This may be changed in the future.

The knack of using a classic bow weapon, be the bow short or long.

  • Bow Apprentice: the Speed of the Character with a bow is increased by 5.
    • Trained by any Elite Bow Guard (Dernholm)
  • Bow Expert: the Character may fire two arrows at once. Technically, only one arrow is still fired and consumed, but it will deal damage twice simultaneously, both in Turn-Based and Real Time modes. Critical hits will apply to both shots, but not the same critical roll/effect. Bows which deal damage twice to animals (as if two arrows are fired), such as Elven Hunter's Bows, will instead deal damage four times for a Bow Expert.
  • Bow Master: the Character's chance of success is unaffected by range penalties.
    • Trained by Kietzel Pierce (Anabelle's Galley in Black Root, later in Caladon)
    • The first time you meet Kietzel in the Black Root, he will tell you to find his apprentice Dudley Crossdon'a. He will also give you a quest to retrieve the Bow of Ecclesiastes, hidden in the ancient ruins known as Ruins of Szabo. Once in place, do not rush to break in the door, look for unobtrusive Junk Pile, therein lies the first key. Over the corpses of monsters pass on and find a second key. You may have to shoot down a few torches (hold alt and left click on them.) If you like the weapon, you can tell Pierce the ruins were empty, but then you have to pay 2000 gold for tuition.

BonusesEdit

Combat Edit

Bows have some advantages over firearms, such as the greater quantity of arrows found in shops and dungeons, their potential use by both magickal and technological characters, and their remarkably low weight. There are certain disadvantages as well. Although there are bows to suit both the adept mage and the skilled technologist, their variety is lacking on both sides. Arrows need to travel a certain distance before hitting the target unlike bullets which either hit or miss instantly. Real-Time combat can thus be somewhat frantic for an archer — their enemies often dodging all of the initially fired arrows before closing in for a melee attack.

Arrows that miss their target can strike a different target in their trajectory, be it a creature or an object. Lining up enemies in Turn-Based mode can ensure that the most damage is dealt per shot this way, but one should also be careful that their followers are not in the path. Because of the low damage per hit dealt by most or all bows, critical failures tend to not be very problematic.

Bows Edit

All bows are two-handed and quiet. Critical hits dealt with bows are impaling; critical failures are of the bows type.
