World of Warcraft Weapons Guide: Bows – Part 13

In this article, you will find some insights on some of the remaining bows in the game including the Soulstring, Skyfire Hawk-Bow and Siege Bow. This is now the 13th part of the article series for bows. So, let us start.

Screeching Bow

The Screeching Bow might be very fragile looking but you should know better than be fooled by looks. This level 53 item was added in patch 1.11.1 requiring players to be in the 48th level or higher for it to be used. It binds immediately to a character when it is picked up and when it binds, the Screeching bow will increase the stamina by 4, agility by 4, and shadow resistance by up to 10 points. Furthermore, when the Screeching Bow is equipped to a character, it will improve your haste rating by as much as 7 or 0.91%. This ranged WoW weapon has a speed rating of 3.00 and could potentially induce 137 to 138 damage or 45.9 damage per second to its target enemy. The Screeching Bow could only be dropped when in Normal mode by the Baroness Anastari at Stratholme.

 

Seasoned Marshwood Bow

This sassy looking ranged WoW weapon was added to the game realm in patch 2.3.0 and could be disenchanted. This weapon binds to a character after it is picked up and automatically increases the character’s agility by 4 and stamina by 2. The Seasoned Marshwood Bow is a level 38 item with durability of a level 40 item. But, aside from its durability, the Seasoned Marshwood Bow falls to becoming another mediocre bow in World of Warcraft. It has a 2.70 speed rating and could only induce 26.8 damage per second or from 50 to 94 total damage to its target enemy which is below average. You could get the Seasoned Marshwood Bow as a reward from the quest called “The Reagent Thief” which requires level 36 players.

 

Serpent Spine Longbow

Serpent Spine Longbow is quite an unusual looker ranged weapon that was added in World of Warcraft by virtue of patch 2.1.0. When it binds to a character of level 70 after it is picked up, the Serpent Spine Longbow will bring considerable improvement to the character’s skills. It will improve its stamina by as much as 17 and its agility by a whopping 19 points. Furthermore, when the Serpent Spine Longbow is equipped, it will increase the critical strike rating of the character by up to 16 points or 0.72%. This bow has a natural average speed rating of 3.00 and is one of the most durable and highly effective bows in the whole game. The bow is said to be able to inflict 130.5 damage per second or from 313 to 470 total damage to its target. This means that when you know how to aim well and release at the right time then you could inflict serious damage to your enemy. Serpent Spine Longbow was dropped by Lady Vashj at the Serpentshrine Cavern.

 

Short Ash Bow

The Short Ash Bow is pretty weak bow. In fact, it is one of the weakest weapons in World of Warcraft. This level 23 bow which was added in patch 1.11.1 requires level 18 players or higher. But, just a warning, only use the Short Ash Bow when your enemy is also weak or wounded already to see any effect that the bow has inflicted any sort of damage to its target. The bow has 1.90 speed rating and could do only 20 to 38 damage or 15.3 damage per second to its target. The Short Ash Bow was dropped by about 200 characters in World of Warcraft including:

Siege Bow

Added in patch 1.11.1, the Siege Bow brings an assortment of random enchantments to any character that it is equipped with. This ranged WoW weapon is in the 53rd item level but requires players to attain just the 48th level for it to bind. The Siege Bow binds when equipped to a character of the desired level and will then improve the latter’s agility by 7, spirit by 7, stamina by 7, intellect by 5, and ranged attack power by 17. Aside from the random enchantments, the Siege Bow also has a natural average speed rating of 2.80 and could inflict as much as 41.2 damage per second (80 to 150 total health damage) too its target. Furthermore, the Siege Bow would also not be behind when it comes to durability as it is also quite a durable bow. The Siege Bow was dropped by 200 characters (including NPCs or non-player characters) in the game; the list includes:

  • Ramstein the Gorger at Stratholme

Skyfire Hawk-Bow

One of the more fancy looking bows in World of Warcraft, the Skyfire Hawk-Bow is certainly a looker. But in retrospect, the bow is also not just a good looker as it also is one of the more powerful weapons in the game. The bow, which was added in patch 2.0.1, is a level 112 item that requires players to be in the 68th level or higher before it can be used. It binds immediately when picked up and automatically increases the character’s agility by 13. When equipped, the Skyfire Hawk-Bow will increase your hit rating by as much as 14 points. It has a 2.40 average speed rating and could potentially strike a serious blow to its target. What with its capacity to inflict 151 to 283 damage per second or 90.4 total health damage. The Skyfire Hawk-Bow could be dropped in Normal and Heroic modes by Warbringer O’mrogg at The Shattered Halls.

 

Soulstring

Soulstring is no longer available in the game realm today. However, when it was available, it was one of the most powerful bows in World of Warcraft. This looker of a bow was added in patch 1.11.1 as a level 83 item. It binds to any character of level 60 and will then increase the latter’s agility by 8 and stamina by 6. When it is equipped, the Soulstring will improve the critical strike rating of the character by 14. It has a speed rating of 2.90 and could induce 85.0 damage per second or from 172 to 321 total health damage to its target. The bow is the same model as Accursed Bow of the Elite which needs level 80 players.
