The bow (and arrow) is a weapon available to players from mid stages of the game. The type of arrows used affects the damage per hit.
Attacking a mob (ranged combat): Place the bow in an active hotbar slot.
- Charging the Bow: Press and hold right mouse button to charge the bow (nock/draw).
- Aiming the Bow: Aim the white crosshairs at the selected target
- Firing an Arrow: Release the mouse button to fire (loose) the arrow.
Note: The arrows do not need to be placed in a hotbar slot to be used.
Tools are items commonly used by players and are generally equipped in the hotbar.
- Bows do not stack in inventory or when placed in containers. Up to four tools can be placed on the tool rack, a specialized wall mounted storage container.
- Arrows stack to 64, may be carried in player inventory and stored in stationary containers.
