    I can't check item descriptions right now, but did the real ornstein ever use the Dragon Slayer Bow? You know, Dragon Slayer Ornstein using the Dragon Slayer bow...it makes sense.

    No. If I had to guess, those were used by the Silver Knights assigned to Gough's command.

    You sure? It makes so much sense that he would have the dragon slayer bow as his weapon, even though I don't think it ever states that he did.

    Spear and bow have the same names.

    He was leader of the silver knights(and supposedly has customized silver knight armor)

    He'd need a long range weapon to take down the dragons

    you know..

    His spear shoots lightning bolts.

    His hand also shoots bigger ones. But I still don't see why he wouldn't have a ranged weapon designed specifically for killing dragons.

    Lightning kills dragons. Gwyn could apparently spam the things.

    Dragonslayer Greatbows Description:
    Bow of the Dragonslayers, led by Hawkeye
    Gough, one of Gwyn's Four Knights.

    I assume they would use tactics similar to how you fight Kalameet. First someone grounds them, and then ground forces would finish them off.

    Maybe the bows only came into use after first Gwyn's firstborn and then Gwyn himself were gone. With neither of the two around to grant bolts of lightning and sunlight, the knights had to come up with other means of fighting any dragons that remained.

    Only Kalameet was still causing trouble by the time Gwyn linked the fire. The other dragons were dead or were in hiding. Hawkeye Gough would not have been made knight of they didn't also need archers.

    And Gwyn and the first born aren't the only ones who can use lightning, the intro showed many people hurling bolts.

    Yes, but what I meant to say is that perhaps you need Gwyn's blessing or something to hurl lightning. After all, you can't use the Sunlight Spear if you're not part of the Sunlight Warrior covenant. If Gwyn's not there, no one gets to use lightning (except Ornstein, because it's forged into his weapon), unless they're in the aforementioned covenant. Which, given how the firstborn was essentially erased from history, is probably not entirely acceptable among the knights.

    I think everyone can use lightning, Gwyn's just happens to be supercharged because of his Lord Soul. You only have to stay in the covenant to use the sunlight spear. Ornstein can throw bolts using his hand as well, he doesn't need the spear.
