World of Warcraft Weapons Guide: Bows – Part 7

This is now the seventh installment in the series that focuses on the BOWS weapon category in the most popular and most subscribed game in the world for 2011 – World of Warcraft. In this article, we shall discuss bows that are from the weaker division, stronger division, and from the average performing division. The bows that will be discussed here include Hurricane, Hunting Bow, Laminated Recurve Bow,  Light Bow, Lunaris Bow, Light Hunting Bow, and Mag’har Bow. Here, you will know some basic specifications of thee items and where and how to get one.



The actual performance and power of Hurricane is quite contradictory to its all too powerful name. In fact, it does not measure up to what one could expect from such a disastrous and damage inducing title. Hurricane requires level 48 players and it binds immediately after it is picked up. When equipped to a character, Hurricane will endow it with a chance to strike its target with a Frost Arrow that could potentially strike 31 to 45 Frost damage. This bow has a speed rating of 1.60 and could inflict 50.6 natural damage per second or from 56 to 106 damage. You can pick Hurricane up from several locations in the map because it is dropped by about 97 characters in the game including:

  • Captain Wymak at the Sunken Temple

Lohn’goron, Bow of the Torn-Heart

The name of this bow might fool someone that is quite inexperience as to thinking that it is not powerful enough to inflict serious damage to its target. However, that is not the case. This unique ranged bow is quite fancy looking and is very durable. It binds to the character that picks it up and when it does bind, it improves the character’s agility by 13 and the character’s stamina by 18. Its speed is 2.60 and it can inflict an amazing 87.5 health damage per second equivalent to giving 159 to 296 total health damage to its target. You could earn 19000 experience points when you earn it through a quest called The Cipher of Damnation (required level is 68).


Lunaris Bow

Lunaris Bow is no longer available within the game from any server worldwide. But as usual, it still deserves a quick mention in this article. Lunaris Bow is a level 30 item that has a speed rating of 2.70 and can give 20.5 damage per second to its target or 38 to 72 damage. It was added in patch 1.11.1 and since then, was disenchanted for 14 times.


Light Hunting Bow

This level 19 item requires its user to be in level 14. Light Hunting Bow is a very unassuming looking bow that has just the right attitude. Why? You should never expect anything big from it. It has a speed rating of 1.70 and can only do as much as 7.5 damage per second or 8 to 17 total damage. If interested to get one, here is a list of the characters that dropped it and where:

Mag’har Bow

The Mag’har Bow is one of the strongest and most powerful bows in WoW in terms of its overall capacity and it does not look scary at all. This is a level 93 item that binds to a character when it is picked up and automatically improves the character’s agility by 9 and its stamina by 12. The Mag’har Bow has a speed rating of 2.80 which is mediocre for its striking prowess which ticks at 63.6 damage per second which is similar to saying 124 to 232 total damage inflicted to its target. The Mag’har Bow is a reward from a quest titles Administering the Slave which only admits level 60 players or higher. Once this weapon is equipped to your character, you will gain additional 10400 experience points.
