Skill and improvement


A sturdy bow that will fire pretty far with good accuracy.


  • A bow is best made out of willow logs. Examining it will then say, "The willow wood used in this bow gives it good strength yet supreme flexibility."
  • Stringing with a bow string is needed to make the bow functional. Before that, examining it will say: "An unstringed sturdy bow." A bow must be unstrung in order to improve it.
  • Iron bows exist in the game. These were a reward from a special historical event and are quite rare. They cannot be crafted but can be improved using blacksmithing. They look like regular wooden bows.


This weapon is best used at 10 tiles range, or 40m when looking through a spyglass. It requires a minimum range of 5 tiles. Higher skill in this weapon gives more shooting options when used.

Bows must be wielded in your hands to be fired. Bows are two handed weapons, and cannot be equipped unless both hands are empty and you aren't wearing a shield.

See the archery page for more.
