World of Warcraft Weapons Guide: Bows – Part 3

In World of Warcraft (WoW), players can choose to use among many different weapons. These weapons can either be picked up when it is dropped by another character, fished, or earned when a quest is completed. The weapons in World of Warcraft are divided into categories: daggers, bows, fishing poles, fist weapons, guns, etc.

One of the more popular weapon categories in this global phenomenon of a game is bows. Bows in World of Warcraft are very useful especially when the player wants a sneak attack or does not want a close quarter combat. By using bows, a player can strike his enemy from a reasonable distance. Aside from its long range characteristic, some bows are also quite powerful and could, in the right timing, inflict bigger health damage to its unlucky target. Moreover, bows are also one of the cheapest weapons in World of Warcraft so players can easily buy one whenever they need one.
