Long bows are one of the basic types of missile weapon in ADOM. They have default stats of (+2, +2), although variations from this are common.


Because so many types of slaying ammunition exist for them, bows are a very popular weapon class. Long bows are the strongest mundane bows, and will usually be used if a long bow of accuracy, long bow of hunting or Sun's Messenger cannot be obtained.

Guaranteed/Common sources[]

They can be obtained in the same manner as all generic loot. They are occasionally dropped by raiders or barbarian leaders.
