Still a great bow!

Still one of the best bow's in the game with a range of 250 you will not find a bow with longer range, and best of all is full stats to a level 20. Can be used by a level 1 and you will grow into this bow fast. If used with the mithril champion arrows (range 150) add that to the bow's range and you'll be hitting mobs so far off they will look like tiny shadows when you start to pick them off. Not to mention the speed is pretty nice on the bow too. Throw in a fleeting quiver and you might drop some of these mobs even before they get to you. For a low level toon, definately still the best bow in the game for anyone that is Tunare.

Skill cap

Actually the skill cap regardless of Skill enhancing devices is 252, so irregardless of what skill you have, the geerlok can't raise your skill past 252. Therefore, someone with a geerlok and 240 actual skill will have the same effective skill level than someone with a geerlok and 250 actual skill.

By far the most valuable website of information for the Fletching skill, including all of the Blessed Faydark bows, has got to be the EQ Rangers website. There's also a complete listing of what arrows you should make, the cheapest way to increase your fletching skill. If you have a Ranger, it would be highly beneficial for you to check out http://www.eqrangers.com/

On the menu bar you find on the left hand side, click on Trades & Training Guides. Click the link for Wood Elf Cultural Fletching and you will find all the information you wanted to know about the Blessed Faydark bows (as well as the Fier’Dal Fletching Kit, which is mysteriously absent from Allakhazam's).

Should I get one of these or a Nightmarewood Compound Bow? NWCB only goes for like 4k.. Right now I have a Compound Steelshaft bow, Which one?

Compound Steelshaft Bow: 28/40 +25hp +5str +5dex rng:200

Nightmarewood: 30/38 +25hp 5ac +10dex +8str +8int +15vsmg mana: 50 rng:190

But this costs alot more =P
which one?

If you are in your 50s, go with the Twisted Longbow, same AC, better Ranger stats (assuming you are a Ranger :-) ). Twisted does more damage, but has less range and slightly less stats. I've seen them for 4K (which I usually buy and then sell at 5K right away).

Since Nightmare has a Rec level of 61, you won't see it's full stats until then. At that point I hope you have something even better! That's why Nightmarewood is so cheap in the Bazaar.

I'm going with a BFT because of the range and the AGI and DEX, which I need right now. I may have it until I do loot a better bow.

My question is simple and no one go off the deep end on this. When u make heman cultural armor i was told the recipe is the same except for the imbued gem used to make it Diety specific. Now my question is this can karana rangers use this bow if i change the imbued emrerald with a imbued plains pebble?

karana rangers get the eternal tempest compound bow. the tunar one is made with mithril where the karana would use steel and mark of karana. other than this the two bows are exactly the same. the 250 range for a lvl 20 toon rocks btw. all other componants are the same. just substitute mithril for steel and mark of karana. oh and oak bark for whatever the one for karana uses.

There is a crafted version of BFT for karana follower... exactly same stats as Bless faydark thunderbolt..

As far as I am aware, there is no imbued emerald in the BFT.

The recipe is for 1 durable planar beam, 2 cams, mithril working knife and a light mithril string.

The durable planar beam is made from a reinforced planar beam combined with a mithril alloy rod. The reinforced planar beam is made from a planar beam (foraged) and a mithril alloy rod.

Mithril ally rod = celestial temper, enchanted large brick mithril, large brick ofacrylia and a smithy hammer.
celestial temper = purified water + blue diamond dust.
blue diamond dust = blue diamond + jar acid
purified water = celestial essence + 2 flasks of water.
celestial essence = celestial solvent + essence of marr
light mithril string = small brick of mithril, silk string and oak bark tannin
oak bark tannin = oak bark + flask of water

Thus no emerald m8 so no way to swap the emerald for a plains pebble. Looks like BFT stays as Tunare only. As a Tunare worshipper this is ok by me - now if i could only get my fletching skill high enough to make one. Have a cloudbuster at the moment.

Made by a wood elf smith useing the cultural forge in Kelethin. Go up Newbie lift from the ground, from that platform, go up the ramp that is kinda to your right, and you will see a forge, but this is just a plain one, not cultural. Just go up one more ramp from where you are and that is where the Fier'Dal forge is.

The Recipe is listed on this site, but i cant remember exactly what it takes. I do know that all of the molds you need can be bought from the merchant standing right by the forge though.

I'm very sad to see that a few of these are selling for 15kpp on Morrel-Thule, instead of the normal 17-19kpp. The shame of it is, the 2 or 3 people selling it for 15kpp are causing potential buyers to expect it at that price and not buy until they see another for 15kpp. This causes lucky fletchers to impatiently drop thier prices to make a quick buck, causing a downward spiral which REALLY takes a bite out of the Grandmaster Fletcher's bread-maker. Sigh. The downward spiral of a kick-**** item is a sad, sad thing to witness.

Your not going to like this news Lanys Tyval server I saw someone selling 3 for 8k pp. i got mine for 9400pp And love it. I had originally purchased for Pali then realized there was a 75 Skill cap for archery. So my next Char was decided for me. Hes only a 12 right now but I get better hits more often than with my Shadewood Compound. And i can't believe the distances, Im hiting things that are off the FAR CLIP PLANE and doing 30-40 dmg 3-4 times before they even get to me. I can't wiat till the stats increase when i hit L20.

Yes Sadly it is hard to sell any player made bow now and days with the Bazaar in full swing. I try to sell bows sometimes only to be rudly spamed OOC style that I am charging to much for the bow!! Mostly by people that either dont have a trade skill or just dont know what it takes as far as time working on the skill and the sheer PP amount it took to get to a high skill LvL.

Anyway, sorry, just my input.

Looks like the new Jaggedpine zone has some items for Karana worshiping Rangers. I am a Tunare boy myself, but am glad to see things being evened out.

Till i read this thread I was nto aware that Vah Shir had to be agnostic..... kind of difficult to have no set belief about the existence/non-existence of Gods when you can zap into any Planar zone and see them right beofre your own eyes *ginr*.

It's a bit like Granny Weatherwax in the Terry Pratchett books : "Just because the Gods exist, that aint no reason to go 'round believing in them !"

Actually, agnostics believe that mere mortals cannot hope to understand the divine and therefore profess no faith. Atheistists on the other hand, believe in nothing divine and profess against any and all faith. The position of the atheists would not make sense in Everquest, given the powers of priest classes and hybrids come from a deity. Why are we talking about this here?

Well, I'm a WE Ranger on AB with 250 skill (255 with a Geerlok) and I made 2 of these today for 3 attempts - not too shabby. Guildy I made the one for LOVES it - and had a lot of enquiries in a short time from folks who saw him with it - so there is a real market there - and with few fletchers at 250, or so it seems, this could be a good earner for me :)

I know thisa is a fairly pointless thing to post about but , Dont Geerloks provide a 5% increase to you current Tradeskill level ? ie +5points at 100skill. Therefore wouldnt a Geerlok make your adjusted skill level 262.5 if your actual skill is max'd at 250?
Just a thought.

Is it just me or are rangers getting the shaft again. I would think that VI would set it up so that a class based on doing damage thru archery would have decent equipment at the same levels that the other melees can attain it. Fletching is an expensive trade skill and bows with good stats and D/D ratios all drop in high level zones. Or maybe its just me that sucks. Archery is 210, Fletching is 195 (i stopped once i got a Tolans Bracer). Anyway heres my new ranger creed. " I suck , I know I suck and I embrace and cherish the fact. Knowing that I suck and that the class I choose to play has been much maligned and hamstrung, enables me to overcome these limitations, and to suck less. "

If you have not already found one, I will help. My Tunare-following Wood Elf Ranger (Tanuan) does not yet have the skill, but my chanter (Schill) and SK (Cshill) are both already already master fletchers and I know it's not that hard to skill up, just expensive.

A couple k would get my skill up to 202. A geerok fletching device would modify that up to 212. If you were then to provide the materials for 3 attempts, I think we could get you one of these amazing bows. Send me a tell in-game or any email through here.

This bow has a trivial WELL above 250, even with a skill of 250 AND a Geerlok device, the sucess rate is around 50/50. So don't count your chickens on having one sucess in three with a skill of 202(212). The 6 blue diamonds required for 3 attempts alone are enough to just pay someone else to do the combine. Not to mention sitting and foraging on the Plane of Growth for hours to get the branches, or sitting and foraging oak bark (or finding it as a ground spawn in Butcherblock). Then you have all of the "cheaper" brewing etc combines to think of.

Not that I mean to discourage you from trying to make this, but it almost makes more sense to just pay a grandmaster to do the final combine, there is just too much to lose to risk the attempt when you are that far away from the trivial (which even at 250 with geerlok you can't hit).

It's time for all of those grandmaster fletchers to come out of the woodwork(pardon the pun) and have an honest to goodness reason to have a skill of 250 in fletching. Before the new bows came out, the most a fletcher at that skill could hope for is to make a bow or two for friends, and sell a few to those he could. Most people that buy bows buy one, because you only need one, and then fletch their own arrows. Not a very profitable market, as the people that bought your bow would then turn around and sell it back on the open market as soon as they got a higher end bow with stats and/or better ratio.(Yes, karana rangers got the shaft again.)

Now all of those fletchers that went the extra mile to get their fletching to 250 have a bow they can be proud of. Nice ratio, with some WONDERFUL stats. For a ranger this is just amazing. No longer will you be forced to carry a range item in your bag of tricks to throw in when you arn't using your bow. Five points to 4 major stats (including DEX YAY!), TEN points to 3 major resists, FIFTY hp and mana...the only other thing I could ask for is some AC, but that would REALLY be pushing things (well you do get 5 AGI). Heck for the stats alone this is wonderful, it's almost a freebee that you can actually shoot arrows with it (and how about that 250 range!).

Grats to all those fletchers out there rolling in the money from making/selling these, you earned it big time. Fletching was another one of those "low level" tradeskills that made items like banded armor or fine plate, that were ok for lower end players, but were quickly replaced as levels went on. Not to mention the fact that not a ton of characters can use bows. This bow for stats alone will remain with most/all players that get it, even if you get something that plinks arrows better.

The road to make or have this bow made is a long one, but I think in this case the end justifies the means, which isn't often the case.

i am a ranger of tunare, and i saw that helm of the tracker is great for me, my argument for it being tunare only is it restricks the halflings who were forced to worship karana. this one seems a bit over the top though. it a great bow and thats a rangers best friend, i dont think somin this good should be held back.

No way you crit'd for 781dmg with BFT at 216 skill and with the title of Baron.

If you did, it's a bug. 30dmg bow with 11dmg arrows max non Trueshot crit is 525dmg. Max non trueshot non crit is 304dmg. And this is with Archery Mastery 1. Which would mean you'd be a Veteran. Max TS crit is just a tad over 1000dmg with Archery Mastery 1.

With no AM, max regular hit with no Trueshot discipline is 234dmg.

Either your sig is fubar, or your numbers are. Which is it?

I just noticed your sig says you're a ranger of Karana, yet this bow is Tunare only. Do they have a version that is Karana usable now?

Ground spawns for the oak bark can be anywhere MOBS spawn between the 2 shacks and Delin Ironblend are, I have found. I am on the Cazic Thule server as Atlin if anyone needs oak bark. I have several in the bank.

If you go to Surefall Glade and talk to some of the various NPCs there, you'll hear a story about the seal to Jaggedpine being opened. They also mention Karana in some of the various dialogues. Sounds like Karana rangers might be in luck soon.

Actually, according to the fletching boards on eqtraders.com, 6 for 13 is pretty accurate, about a 50 percent failure rate has been reported with a skill of 250 and a Geerlok. (Also reported from a grandmaster fletcher making these that I spoke to.)

Actually, your primary stat has no effect on success/failure - only your skill does. Your primary stat only effects the level at which you skill up.
Unfair?

/agree Tunare only is unfair, it cut down on my customer base, hehehe
Best bows for non-treehuggers are the Velium bow series that drop in DN. I have a Double Recurve Velium bow (hehe for sale) that is 30/37 distance 130 vs the 30/38 distance 250 of BFT. That alone would is worth upgrading to BFT for us treehugers...

Thank you Varrak (Cazic Thule). This bow is so incredible as an overall range item; total stats. Biggest pain for me was foraging oak bark. I wish I new the ground spawn locs in Butcher. Anyways sell your double recurve to a Karna ranger and get one these.

Aloha and well met --

/whine on

I am slightly saddened by the creation of yet another tunare faith based item, without an apparant match in Karana faith based items. I am adding this t the list of lovely items that my god will not allow me to equip.

/whine off -- /ramble on

1. Is there a comperable crafted bow for the Karana Faith based Rangers (or other classes/faiths for that matter) that we have yet to stumble on?

2. If there are no comperable Faith based creations items for my god, I feel my god has err slightly forsaken me. Would there be a possiblity that someday I might go forth, conduct a "vision-quest" and do a one time change of religion.

/ramble off

Not sure if this post belongs here, but have not seen a comperable thread in the discussion pages recently about Faith based items.

I fully concur with you Sam... These new faith based items are incredible, but sadly Karana followers and yet once again left with nothing. I play 3 Karana following characters and would glady go on your "vision-quest" to change deities.
I know people will say wait for PoP to come out for Karana based items, but honestly I am sick of waiting.

This is one item that has made me see that the game is seriously in need of balancing for Karana followers. There are always other options for us that chose to follow the the Rainkeeper, but it makes me sad to see that other Deities bless their followers with incredible items such as this, while we are left wanting...

Hunt well and godspeed...

Im sure once PoP comes out, there will be similar god-based quests just like the ones found in PoG. This being said, the way the high end game is going with 2 handers delay over damage, im hoping the PoG items get upgraded as well. Im also hoping for a way to raise faction in other planes if you worship these gods. Example: I kill in PoG, my faction goes down there but raises in PoH, and vice versa. As a High elf paladin of tunare I can go hail my god, but I know if im a DE Shadowknight, Id want to go hail innoruk and get similar quests from the plane. Sure the new planes will be awesome, but plesae upgrade the current ones.(This could be fit in story line wise as Tunare has taken the precautions of protecting her plane from the events of recent planes opening..blah blah blah)

I also have this same complaint. I haven't done a specific search for karana useable only items but I don't think I have ever happened upon a single one on this site or any other. And that my friend is pure BS. I remember that even before these blesed Fay items came out there were other items that I woulda loved to have had but they were Tunare only. So much for balanceing the frickin game. Although with any luck as they revamp the newb zones and such maybe we will get lucky and get something like this. The only kind thing I have to say to verant about this item is that I'm glad they are finaly making really nice Tradeskill items.

Not to mention that VI has appearently said that Half-elves do not have a culture of their own and will not have any cutural skills. That's just wrong!

I agree that there should be balance in euipment. If items are being made that are useable by worshippers of a specific religion then all worshippers should be able to use. As far as culteral items go, half elves in literature arean abomination and not accepted by either elves or by humans (although they are tolerated by humans). Because of this they have no culture of their own.
RE: Karana Faith Items
# Jun 12 2002 at 9:07 PM Rating: Decent
What's with the 'Half-Elf's don't have a culture / are an abomination " stuff ?

Like so much of modern fantasy we have J.R.R. Tolkien to thank for the Half-Elf. Those of you who think of Half-Elves are cultural mis-fits might spare a moment to remember that ELROND from Lord of the Rings is, in fact ELROND HALF-ELVEN. He's a Prince of the Elves, leader of the resistance against Mordor and stalwart defender of all things from the Elvish culture.

Now your basic Dark Elf ( or Drow to go back to the old D&D terms ) - THERE's a misfit ! Evil stinky beasts they are.

This isn't LOTR. They can do whatever they want in THEIR game. If you look at it logicly, why WOULD half elves have their own culture? They should be rare at best, and they are the blend of two other cultures, a half-breed if you will, not of either race entirely. If there was a half elf city culture, wouldn't they breed until they were no longer hlf elves, but some 60/40, 70/30, 90/10? Bah what a mess. If it makes you feel better, look at them like donkeys. Horses and mules can breed, producing a donkey. Donkeys are sterile from birth, and cannot reproduce on their own. Thus, there is never any "donkey" breeding. (I may have confused donkey with mule, but you see what I mean.)

not to sture things up...but in Fanticy history, Half elves where not looked upon very highly...also they are a resalt of human and elf parents. This makes them resonably with out a true culture. Though, I feel they should be able to use the culture they grow up in. I also feel there should be a balance between the equipment. Its not approprate to have only Tunar based weapons made by wood elves. The humans should make a Karana faithed weapon also.

Vah'shirr may not have the Fungi tunic, but they have the Fungal Tunic, which has the effect of Fungal Regrowth. That effect also stacks with the spell Regrowth *AND* another regen spell (which escapes me at the time, but it's a right-click effect on a weapon). That equals a LOT of hp regen.

Just letting people know that I've been working my lil behind off on Trib to be able to make these.

Fletching is now up to 208, and I have a geerlock to essentially raise my skill to 218.

If anyone out there on Trib would like to help me out with large and small blocks of acrylia to raise my skill, I'll be able to pump these things out ASAP.

Look for me in-game

Yes me and my paladin **** with 75 archery will go for this. I may not hit the best w/ my bow but this is an awesome range slot item. Yeah and i know there is better but for the average guy, this is awesome. My sword is of tunare(Natures def.) and now my bow will be =) this better look like the new luclin bows and not the old pos ones

# May 15 2002 at 11:53 AM Rating: Decent
Yes the new Cultural Bows have a new graphic. Made one of the lesser bows myself and saw one of these equiped on a ranger friend of mine.

P.S. - if you are a Wood Elf fletcher on Druzzil Ro without much smithing skill and are looking for a Fier'dal Fletching kit send me a tell - :)
