It has a natural speed rating of 2.10 and could induce as much as 34.8 damage per second (51 to 95 total health damage) to its target enemy.

Splintermark

The Splintermark is yet another ranged World of Warcraft weapon that has a name that seems fit for its actual value. Well, the Splintermark is, by all means, an above average performer. It was added in patch 2.0.1 for the Alliance side as a refundable item that could be disenchanted.  The Splintermark is a level 91 WoW bow that requires players to attain the 62nd level or higher before it will bind. Splintermark binds immediately to a character after it is picked up and will automatically improve the agility of the character by 8 points and the stamina of the character by 7 points. When it is equipped, the Splintermark will increase the critical strike rating of the character that it is bound by as much as 12 points or 0.79%. This bow has a natural average speed rating of 2.50 which is pretty average for its level. However, the redeeming quality of the Splintermark is its quite powerful striking power. It can be able to inflict 72.1 damage per second or 126 to 235 total health damage to its target. Splintermark is sold by Alliance Field Scout and Horde Field Scout at Zangarmarsh. Note: Splintermark will also be converted to its Horde counterpart once you have made the transfer.

 

Starbolt Longbow

Starbolt Longbow is quite the looker with its golden color and wonderfully crafted curves. This ranged WoW weapon requires level 70 players for it to bind. The Starbolt Longbow binds when it is picked up and will automatically improve the stamina of the character by as much as 19 and when equipped, it will improve the critical strike rating of the character by as much as 15 points or 0.7%. It has a speed rating of 2.80 and could induce 130 to 242 damage to its target or 66.4 damage per second. Aside from its powerful striking prowess, the Starbolt Longbow also prides itself as one of the most durable bows in the whole of World of Warcraft. The Vendor Price of Starbolt Longbow is 6 Gold, 83 Silver, and 4 Bronze and its Disenchantment Value ticks at 21 Gold and 41 Silver. You can also get the Starbolt Longbow at the Mana-Tombs (it was dropped there by Pandemonius).

 

Stiff Shortbow

The Stiff Shortbow is basically the simplest and weakest bow in the game realm. This level 4 bow was added to the game via patch 2.0.1 and could not be disenchanted. The speed rating for the Stiff Shortbow is 2.00 and its damage infliction prowess stands at 2.1 damage per second or 3 to 6 damage (the puniest there is in World of Warcraft). Just so you know, the Stiff Shortbow is sold by Raelis Dawnstar at the Eversong Woods.

 

Stinging Bow

This WoW weapon was added via patch 1.11.1 to the game. It has a level 55 item status and would bind to a character of level 50 or higher once it is picked up. When that happens, the Stinging Bow will improve the agility of the character by 4 and its stamina by 7. When equipped, the Stinging Bow will increase the hit rating of the character it is bound to by as much as 4 points or 0.53%. The speed rating of the Stinging Bow stands at 2.80 and it could inflict 47.4 damage per second or from 93 to 173 total health damage to its target. Aside from its above average striking details, the Stinging Bow is also proud to have a good durability rating. However, when faced with ultra strenuous situations, the Stinging Bow might just break. The Stinging Bow was dropped by 8 characters; here is the list:

  1. Atal’ai Deathwalker at the Sunken Temple
  2. Hakkari Sapper at the Sunken Temple
  3. Nightmare Scalebane at the Sunken Temple
  4. Nightmare Wyrmkin at the Sunken Temple
  5. Nightmare Wanderer at the Sunken Temple
  6. Hakkari Frostwing at the Sunken Temple
  7. Atal’ai Corpse Eater at the Sunken Temple
  8. Shade of Hakkar at the Sunken Temple

 

Stout Oak Longbow

Compared to most bows, the Stout Oak Longbow can be grouped to the weaker category. Why? The look of this bow does not give off any kind of powerful aura neither does it give you a durable look. However, you should know better than to be fooled by looks. The Stout Oak Longbow was added in the game via patch 2.0.1 and can be disenchanted. Its item level is 80 and it binds immediately to any character that picks it up and will increase the agility of the character by 6 and its stamina by as much as 12. Its speed rating peaks at 3.30 and it could potentially induce 57.6 damage per second or from 133 to 248 total health damage to its target enemy. You can get the Stout Oak Longbow as a reward from two different quests in the named: “Thinning the Ranks” and “What Happens in Terokkar Stays in Terokkar” both requiring level 62 players.

 

Striker’s Mark

Striker’s Mark will surely leave a disastrous mark to any character that is gallant and courageous enough to cross its master’s path. This very fluid looking bow has an item level of 69 and was added to the game via patch 1.11.1. The Striker’s Mark needs level 60 players for it to bind when it is picked up. When it binds, the Striker’s Mark will increase the agility of the character by a whopping 11 points and when it is equipped, it will increase the hit rating of the character by up to 10 points or 1.07%. Its speed rating is at 2.50 and it could inflict quite a serious danger. The Striker’s Mark can induce 66.0 damage per second or from 115 to 215 total damage points taken from its target. Furthermore, this bow is also the most durable bow in the game and ranks quite high in the durability list of the weapons in the whole game. You can get the Striker’s Mark from Magmadar at Molten Core.
