I'm a wood elf druid with fletching as a trade skill, but i have never made anything but arrows. Where is a good place to find some recipes and the ingrediants for these types of bows?

I had a recurve bow made and it's the old graphics, is the compound one using the "newer" graphic that I've seen?

I finally managed to make one of these babies and she is sweet. Only took me 4 attempts with fletching at 202. She's hard to make but worth it. Anybody want one? I'll take orders at 2k a pop on The Nameless!

Just thought I'd mention that you can buy the staves for these in Kelethin. Saw it on the vendor outside Trueshot Bows, price as mentioned elsewhere about 350pp from memory.

I fletched 3 of 5 of these last night and sold all 3 for 1500pp.

The recipe is:
Shadewood Bow Staff
Planing Tool
Sting of Choice (can be changed later)
Cam (yes, 2 cams)

Staff sells for about 350pp depending of CHA, cams about 30pp ea, and the planing tool is 10pp.

This bow is AWESOME. One of the best bows in the game, and by far the best man made bow. Exceeds Raincaller in all stats except range, where it is equal. The Light Velium at 30/40 150 range has a better dmg/dly, but the range is less. Light Velium sells for 3k on Veeshan. Without anything else to go on, I based my price on stats. Probably could have sold them for 2k, but I was thrilled with my success rates, so I went a little low to ensure a sale.

Thought it was worth mentioning the stats on the various string configs.

Silk: 21/39/200
Linen: 22/43/200
Hemp: 23/47/200

Also, for those who did not know, since a patch or two ago, there are now vendors selling both bow and arrow fletching supplies in North Freeport in the building with the Oven outside (to the right as you approach the bank).

Well, since it is shaped, it sounds as though you need a Shadewood Bowstaff, a Hemp Bowstring and a plane. I heard that the shadewood can be had at any bowyering shop, though I haven't seen one in Kelethin or Kaladim as of yet. Probably Shadow Haven and Shar Val on Luclin. Next, I have heard that they are VERY expensive, in the range of 400 pp for the staff. Ugh. Lastly, I have heard rumor that the trivial for this is well over 200; perhaps as high as 235. I'm weeping.
