I had read that other mobs in the zone drop the bow too, so I went about killing everything, but paying particular attention to the mobs in Warlock Gurag's room and his PHer. In total I killed 515 trash and PHers and 2x Warlock Gurag before the bow eventually dropped... from Warlock Gurag. While it isn't conclusive that he's the only one to drop the bow, I for sure would focus solely on him and his PHers if I were ever to camp the bow again.
900pp on luclin

Got this bow for 900 plat on luclin. There was another for sale for about 1200pp so of course I got the cheaper one. All the other nice bows were over 2k which I couldn't afford, like the bow of suffering which would be great since I'm an sk. I know we pull with our spells but a bow comes in handy in case we go oom. I've never been to veskar since I'm only lvl 24 so I figure this will help me out alot.
BRD bow?

How Ironic

How ironic that Smaug was slain by Bard how fired the black arrow, the last in his quiver, from his mighty bow.

How ironic that EQ lore doesn't equate to Tolkien lore. ^_^

Picked this up in the bazar

I was searching for a bow upgrade for my 42 Ranger and I noticed this was priced at 400 pp???? The other 2 were priced around 1200 PP on MT server so I got this as fast as I could. A great upgrade for me and a steal of a price too :)

This bow would have to be for a bard it's absolutely useless to any other bow weilding class at lvl 45. maybe if the recommended level was 25 instead of 45.. I dunno. And yes it is recommended of 45 even tho pic dun show it. :)
no arrows

got this bow tonite. it can be equiped. however, bards do not get archery and every arrow i came across was not bard usable. so its just a range slot stat item as i know of at this time. but i do get some comments when im speed song running around with a bow in my hand :).

I found arrows that are fletched by Tunare Wood Elves....that are ALL/ALL and BARD CAN equip them.

mistake? I dunno.

But I was not the first Bard to shoot a bow, unfortunately.

I hope they do not nerf it as it is a rarity now.

what was the name of the arrow and how much damage did your shot do?

Wow, this is the only bard bow I know of. could be very usefull for pulling commbined with a nice long range arrow.

It's probably just a mistake. The Spectral Bow from Trak's Teeth froggies used to be bard useable as well. Expect an emercency patch to correct this =p

I too think we should be allowed to use bows - with a low archery cap. *wimper*

Honestly the utility of a bow is mainly lost on a bard. We have lots of other tools to get the pulling job done better, at least at high levels. But I do miss not being able to equip any bows, since there are quite a few really nice ones out there whose stats I'd love. I wish they'd tack us onto more bows in the future.

I actually sort of like the idea of bards being able to bow, I also think they should have gotten the chance to train Archery with a low skill cap (Lower than other melee), I can see the evident utility of this and don't think it would be unbalancing at at all.
