I find these all the time selling from 10k - 15k... They are the best for tribute at 50,000!

if u wanna know best tribute, its compass of khati shai (sp). it normally goes for 500-1k on my server and its tribute value is 15,000. take cheap on this and cheap on bow u get 300000 tribute compared to 50k.
250 trivial?

Well you need to be a premium member and you go under advanced search and look up artifacts, don't know for sure not a premium member. But I think the artifact bow he was refering to was the oakwynd....

I have only seen the feather and stone wood bows on Bristlebane server. the stone bow ironicly sells for more then the feather wood (the stone bow seems to catch every ones eye with the 10 to atk, wow 10, thats like 2 str and the 2hp regen) it is a good effect, but not that good, id rather interupt casting -- hate soloing and getting nuked at the same time, you would own any caster mob if you used a bow that stunned.. use the AAs to increase chance of proc, and the new GoD AAs add even more, any bow with a stun proc would own 2 hp regen and 10 atk .. thats what i think at least

Stun proc only works up to level 65, I think that's the drawback.

Will this proc break root?
#REDACTED, Posted: Jun 09 2003 at 3:17 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I'm rather pissed at SoE (well for many things, but this is just another) that NightmareWood Compound Bows are as common as bone chips now and that the next step up in craftable PoP bows come from the Elemental Planes and only Uber guilds have them. There should have been some middle ground here, with bows from Tier2 and 3 zones, ah but what am I thinking? That would "MAKE SENSE" and thus, violate the SoE EULA (End User Licence Agreement). /bonk me =P

Are you upset tha Sony made better craftable bows, or that you can't make enough money off them...

As for Nightmarewood Bows being as common as bone chips... I'll trade you 2 stacks of bone chips for 1 Nightmarewood anyday.

As a Ranger, I thought you'd appreciate the higher level bows being introduced... there was a point when the Raincaller was considered "uber"

#REDACTED, Posted: Jul 05 2003 at 12:40 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) At what point did making money off selling these bows come into this? I just want a better bow than the nightmare (that everone and his 3rd alt has above level 46). There's a word called "progression" that SoE doesn't seem to understand.

Think about it though, a bow that will interupt an NPC's casting... when you use mana, it interupts casting. So, sieve goes off on a mob casting a dot, no more dot, it got interupted. In old world this will be devestating.
#REDACTED, Posted: Apr 23 2003 at 5:19 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I will make this then probably sell it
Wondeful bow

I obtained this bow back in February. I must say it is UNBELIEVABLE. I used to use the Bow of Doom, but this bow puts the BOD to shame. Fantastic stats too! I have since used the Obsidianwood and Featherwood for comparison, and I like this bow better overall. The Featherwood is really fast, but does less damage per soht. The Obsidianwood does more damage per shot but is TOO slow for me. This bow has a great blend of speed and damage. So what if its effect isn't the best. I didn't buy the bow for its proc. Overall, all 4 elemental bows are fantastic, and in parsing DPS with 3 of the 4 bows(haven't used the Stonewood yet, they all have very near the same DPS. It all depends on whether you want more bow shots with less damage or less bow shots with more damage. Grats to Verant for making these bows available to us and grats to all the wonderful fletchers making these bows for us =)
Hmmm, fletchingarglwlaglrrrrrrrrrr.....

Sweetness - another nock to the bow of seriously sellable rewards from fletching. Combine this with the trend of bows becoming as diverse as melee weapons, and it's a good time to be a Ranger.

Now give us an uberbow made of spider silks and wood chips which trivials at 100 please =) hehehe

I'm pretty sure this is the first bow in the game to have more dmg than delay?

Wronge...look up artifacts and check out that bow..can u say ranger solo's Vindi = )but ofcourse it's a artifact so only one per server...and ofcourse i don't have it on my server = (
RE: 1st one!
# Apr 13 2003 at 6:45 PM Rating: Default
Ranger could never solo Vindi. It's hard enough to solo pull him, and even if the ranger could do that, he'd have to have the arena cleared and Vindi summons. sooooooooooooooooooooooo
