|Sun's Messenger ( } )|
|Item Type||Missile weapon|
Sun's Messenger has stats of (+15, +15), and is an undead slayer.
The best bow in the game by far. It is a tremendous asset when fighting large numbers of undead because of its ability to infuse undead slaying power into even the most mundane stack of 176 arrows (+0, 1d6). Even against everything else, the damage and to-hit bonus is easily worth several levels of weapon skill.

As of v. 1.2.0 it can also be granted as a precrowning gift or a reward for making use of a potion of uselessness; generated in a surge of power or greater vault; or generated as random loot (albeit very rarely).
