Bows are ranged weapons that can be crafted using the Fletching skill. Bows require arrows to shoot. There are two different kinds of bows: shortbows and longbows. Shortbows attack faster but have a shorter attack range than longbows. Longbows have longer range but have a slower attack speed. Composite bows have the same attack range as longbows, but fire slightly faster and have slightly higher accuracy.
