i long for the DS2 days when even a shortbow did good damage. this is just tool for sleep arrows, nothing else.

I've been tearing things apart with bows. Jump shot, quick shot combo shreds.

I'd assume once you get out of Limgrave and 50+ levels the bow really drops off and becomes pretty difficult. You're also not going to do well in PVP due to wasting Arrows and never getting a status effect off.

36 base damage? Cmon Miyazaki, these bows look so cool, give us some much better ones :/

Adding a standard arrow brings the base damage up to 68, which is more than the Club's base damage.

Bow builds rise up and let's show these people what we can do.

Serious question tho, what can y'all do? Farm resources better? Because it seems casters still have y'all beat.

Probably you cheapest and easiest option if all you want to do is apply buildup with arrows

One advantage this has over something like the longbow is that you can fire arrows while galloping. Kinda fun hunting animals like that

Bummed that this is the best scaling shortbow in the game. Was hoping we'd get a super cool endgame bow like in bow of want in DS2

After leveling the shortbow it looks like the composite bow still has better scaling?
Will report back once i slab them both.

Bow of want looks atrocious though

It is not the best scaling shortbow, you are doing misinformation. Don't look at the letter but instead at the hidden modifiers. The Composite Bow will have better damage even at 80 strength.
