The Bow is a ranged weapon used for combat when combined with Arrows.

Creation

Bow

Currently there is only one kind of bow, which is created in the crafting grid.

Arrows

The raw material used to create the tool head determines the crafting process required:

  • Knapping: Only flint
  • Smithing (1 ingot): Iron, Bronze alloy, Copper, Gold, and Silver.

Arrowheads are used to assemble arrows in the crafting grid.

Arrow Tier

The type of arrow used modifies the base attack power of the bow.

Arrow Variant Arrow Modifier Combined Attack Power
Flint -0.5 2.5
Copper 0.0 3.0
Tin Bronze 1.0 4.0
Bismuth Bronze 1.0 4.0
Black Bronze 1.5 4.5
Iron 2.0 5.0
Gold 1.0 4.0
Silver 1.0 4.0

Usage

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.

Combat

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.

Storage

Bows are tools and can be placed on a tool rack.
