Still a great bow!
# Feb 16 2008 at 4:28 AM Rating: Decent
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.

# Dec 13 2003 at 6:47 PM Rating: Default
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

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..

The bold is as follows
RE: Cultural tradeskills
# Mar 18 2003 at 9:32 AM Rating: Decent
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.

It has to be smithed by a wood elf cultural smith in the fier'dal forge
RE: Fletch kit
# Mar 24 2003 at 2:06 PM Rating: Decent
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.

Downward Spiral
# Aug 25 2002 at 6:56 PM Rating: Decent
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-butt 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.

I wish all those who chose Karanas would stop crying, give EQ chance, if you would Check Planes of Power info it appears you will have a Plane like or PoG, so Gratz 8)

But PS I got my PoG quest gloves already on my Druid so NaNaa Nanna BooBoo hehe
