World of Warcraft Weapons Guide: Bows – Part 16

Bows are one of the most popular weapons in World of Warcraft and they are also one of the most useful. Learn more about them in this article as a continuation of our journey towards discovering all bows in the world’s most popular and most subscribed game for 2011.


Thalassian Compound Bow

Added in patch 2.0.1, this blue-colored elegant bow is not one to mess with. Thalassian Compound Bow is a level 99 item that requires level 63 players for it to bind. When it is equipped, the Thalassian Compound Bow will improve the character’s agility by as much as 14 points, intellect by 14, spirit by 14, stamina by 14, hit rating by 7, critical strike rating by 7, and attack power by as much as 28 points. Its speed rating ticks at 2.70 and it could induce 67.5 damage per second or from 127 to 238 damage to any character its master wants to strike. It is lethal and means serious business but it is not the most durable of all weapons. Be careful when using it.

Thistlewood Bow

Thistlewood Bow is nothing special. In fact, you can do without it in the game. This level 5 item could not be disenchanted and it binds when it is picked up. The speed of Thistlewood Bow is said to be at 2.30 and it could inflict only 2.7 damage per second or 4-9 total damage to its target. Durability wise, the Thistlewood Bow can be easily broken even when used in non-strenuous conditions. The Thistlewood Bow is the same model as 15 other bows including:

  1. Satyr’s Bow (a level 41 item requiring level 36 players)
  2. Ashenvale Longbow (a level 84 item requiring level 58 players)

Thori’dal, the Star’s Fury

The Thori’dal, The Star’s Fury bow is one of the fanciest and bulkiest looking bows in World of Warcraft. But the loom is just right for the kind of performance that this weapon brings in to the table. When patch 2.4.2 was installed, this bow was put into the armory list of the game realm. This level 164 item needs players to attain level 70 before it will bind. However, once you reached the required level and picked the Thori’dal, the Star’s Fury, you will feel invincible. When it binds, it will increase the agility of the character by as much as 17 and its stamina by a whopping 26 points. When equipped, the Thori’dal, the Star’s Furybow will improve the critical strike rating of the host character by 16 or 0.72%, haste rating by 17 or 1.08%, and it will also generate several magical arrows once you have drawn the string. It is said that the energy of the Sunwell courses through the body of Thori’dal. It should not come as a shock that this bow has a speed rating of 2.70 because it is the usual speed rating for bows of this kind. However, the mediocre speed is compensated by the very powerful and lethal striking prowess. The Thori’dal can inflict 148.8 damage per second which is equivalent to giving a blow of 281 to 523 total health damage to the target enemy. Aside from those, the Thori’dal is also one of the most durable, if not the most durable, bows in the whole of World of Warcraft. You can get this weapon at Sunwell Plateau as it was dropped there by Kil’jaeden.



This weapon is no longer available to players in the game. But like usual, the Thornflinger is needed to be discussed if not for the purpose of completing the bows that has graced the world’s most popular game. The Thornflinger is a level 57 item that is not very durable but inflicts quite a good amount of damage. Its speed ticks at 2.80 and could inflict 44.3 damage per second or from 86 to 162 total health damage to its target. The Thornflinger is similar, in many ways, to these models:

  1. Bow of Searing Arrows (a level 42 item requiring level 37 players)

When equipped, the Trueshot Bow will improve the agility of the character by 5, spirit by 5, stamina by 5, intellect by 4, and ranged attack power by 12. The Trueshot Longbow does not belong to the more powerful bows in the game. Rather, the Trueshot Bow belongs to the below average performers list of bows in World of Warcraft. True, it only has a speed of 1.90 and could only induce as much as 30.2 damage per second or from 40 to 75 total health damage to its target.
