Shortbows fire faster, longbows do more damage.

From: Koivu09 | #002 Shortbows fire faster, longbows do more damage.
also, longbows have better range, magic shortbows have a different special than the longbow version.
comp bows have a good mix of both though. --- http://pics.bikerag.com/Uploads/data/500/258Troll_spray.jpg *dives behind flame shield* *is Canadian*

longbows do more damage. They do? Shortbows and longbows both seem to have the same range bonus, and I think that stat deals with accuracy rather than max hit. The main difference is that longbows are slower but can fire from a longer distance between you and your target. --- If I were president, I would help all nations, even Hawaii.

Longbows do NOT and have not ever dealt more damage. Shortbows are faster, longbows have more range. Neither type of bow adds anything to your ranged strength. --- Everything I say is a lie.
what kind of situations are best for each type? --- "Aren't bows and arrows primitive and harmless?" Why don't you ask the dinosaurs? Except you can't, because the cavemen bow and arrowed them to death.
