In this article, we will continue our discussion on some of the remaining bows in World of Warcraft that we have not touched yet. Some of the bows that are included here are powerful while some are not so powerful.

However, we still will discuss them just for general knowledge and that you know what has been and is in World of Warcraft.

Eaglehorn Long Bow

This ranged World of Warcraft weapon has a speed rating of 1.80 and can strike quite a powerful blow to its opponent.

When that happens, the Eaglehorn Long Bow will increase the character’s stamina by 4 and its agility by 10. It has an attack power that puts it just above the average line of bow performances. The Eaglehorn Long Bow can induce damage from 67 to 127 or 53.9 damage per second.

Ethereal Warp-Bow

As a bow, the Ethereal Warp-Bow is quite a strong performer. However, you have to reach level 64 before you can use it. If it binds to a character, it increases its stamina by 13 and its critical strike rating by 14. The Ethereal Warp-Bow has a speed rating of 2.70 and can inflict quite a lethal damage. It is written that this bow can induce 163 to 246 health damage to its target or 75.7 health damage per second. However, this ultra useful and powerful bow is dropped by only one character and that is the Nexus-Prince Shaffar at the Mana-Tombs.


Expert’s Bow

The Expert’s Bow lives up to its name as it requires quite a high player level (meaning greater experience) ticking at 64. This ranged weapon binds when it is equipped and when it does, it improves the character’s stamina by 22, agility by 7 strength by 7, hit rating by 7, dodge rating by 7, and critical strike rating by 7. Aside from those, the Expert’s Bow packs 2.70 speed rating and a very powerful 70.1 health damage per second infliction powers or is equivalent to 132 to 247 total damage.

However, it could not be denied that this bow has once played a part in the success of the game and therefore deserves a mention in this article. The Farstrider’s Bow has a speed rating of 2.80 and can inflict 16-31 damage or 8.5 health damage per second which is not that amazing or even average. The Farstrider’s Bow is similar to other models like Baelog’s Shortbow, Alley’s Recurve, Darkspear Hunter’s Bow, Hawkeye Bow, Cadet’s Bow, Sylvan Shortbow, Primitive Bow, Worn Shortbow, and Hornwood Recurve Bow.


Farstrider’s Longbow

The Farstrider’s Longbow has a speed rating of 1.70 and can only inflict as much as 18.4 damage per second or from 21 to 41 total damage to its target.


Feather-Wrapped Bow

The Feather-Wrapped Bow is one of the more powerful ranged weapons in World of Warcraft. This bow binds to the character immediately when it is picked up. Once it binds, its effect is that it improves the agility of the character by as much as 13 and its stamina is also increased by good 6 points. The Feather-Wrapped Bow has a speed rating of 2.70 but it is not there where the power of this bow lies. It is in its attack power. The Feather-Wrapped Bow is capable of inflicting 65.0 health damage per second to its unlucky victim or from 122 to 229 overall health damage to which character it strikes. It is sold for 4 golds, 7 silvers, or 93 bronzes. If you could not afford it then you need to enter a quest when in the 62nd level to get this as a reward. The quest you need to complete is Veil Rhaze: Unliving Evil.
