Composite Hornbow.gif
You see a composite hornbow (Range:6, Atk+3, Hit%+2).
Imbuements: (Empty Slot, Empty Slot, Empty Slot).
It can only be wielded properly by paladins of level 50 or higher.
It weighs 52.00 oz.


    This bow is almost the same as the arbalest, but it has 1 more attack. Combined with Onyx Arrows it has 1 less attack than the arbalest with power bolts. Contrary to popular belief, a Composite Hornbow combined with onyx arrows actually hits higher on average than an Arbalest with power bolts. The average damage inflicted by a level 100 paladin with 100 distance using a Composite Hornbow and onyx arrows is 193, whereas the average damage inflicted by the same paladin using an Arbalest and power bolts is 192. This is due to the higher hit percentage of the Hornbow(they both have 2% hit, only difference is +1 atk on Hornbow, need an updated source on this). Source: [1]
