The Composite Bow is the third bow in the Bow & Crossbow Class. It can be found on Levels 7 to 20 of the Dungeon. Merchants will sell it from Level 3 to 40. It has a value of 1660 and a rarity of 800. Attack radius is 37; strike radius is 42. It takes up 2 x 1 inventory space.
Traditional composite bows are made of horn, wood, and sinew laminated together. The horn is on the belly, facing the archer, and sinew on the outer side of a wooden core. When the bow is drawn, the sinew (stretched on the outside) and horn (compressed on the inside) store more energy than wood for the same length of bow. However, a composite bow requires more skill and time to create, and the finished bow is more sensitive to moisture.
The artifact version of the Composite Bow is Creaking Yew.
