    What is the best Bow ?

    Post by Sciarry on Tue Jun 19, 2012 9:47 am

    I've been playing so far with a Longbow, but i want to upgrade a bow to +15 and I have only one titanite slab, so bad sad. Which one should I upgrade ? Could you explain why ?

    I heard that maybe Black Bow of Pharis is the best to upgrade to +15, is that right ?

    Depends on what you're using it for.

    I use Bow for everything! I killed Bosses just with Bow and Arrows xD I would like to do a lot of damage, with one single shot, and now I can do 100 with one shot (and it's ridiculous), but I wanna do A LOT MORE! happy

    My stats are Str25/Dex35...

    Pharis gives you range bit less damage. And its draw speed makes it useless for pvp. The composite bow sacrifices range for damage, but is also usable in pvp.

    Dragon slayer great bow can do upwards of 300 a shot, but its slow so it works best at long distances. The composite bow is probably best in closer range encounters.

    Now if you haven't beaten the game yet, stop cheating and play properly. Overcoming the challenge yourself is a big part of the 1st play through, and asking here diminishes the effort it took to win, and so, the enjoyment of the game.

    Darkmoon bow is the best all around bow imo. I use it all the time.

    The rest still applies. DSGB has highest damage, composite bow is the fastest.

    Play around with the str and dex till you find the right amount.

    As I said, fastest, so higher dps and best at shorter ranges. If you're a sniper, the black bow of pharis or dragon slayer great bow will be better, you'll do more damage a hit from longer ranges.

    If you don't mind spending some time getting chunks you can go for the crystal short bow. Best possible PvP bow.

    Ok, thanks everyone for the help! I think I'm going to upgrade the Darkmoon Bow to +5 and use the last titanite Slab for something else, or maybe for the Composite Bow itself, 'cause two are better than one! xD

    PvP=I'd go for the Composite Bow

    PvE=I have a special place in my heart for the Black Bow of Pharis
