An elven bow is a launcher for arrows. When unidentified, it is a runed bow. You should not bash monsters with it, or throw it—instead, wield it in your hands, then throw arrows (or fire them from your quiver).

For non-elven characters, an elven bow is basically the same as a regular bow. Elves, however, get the following bonuses:

  • +1 to-hit bonus when using an elven bow (in addition to their normal bow bonus)[1]
  • +1 multishot bonus when firing elven arrows from an elven bow[2]
  • +1 damage bonus when firing elven arrows from an elven bow[3]
