Question from sms_apex

Understanding my Bow?

I made 8 long bows

longbow +14
lightning longbow +4
divine longbow +9
occult longbow +4
magic longbow +9
enchanted longbow +4
fire longbow +9
chaos longbow +4

when i use just a regular wooden arrow the longbow +14 does the most damage. all my stats are 99, im soul level 713 so all bonuses are max. why doesnt a bow with other properties do more damage is it because only the arrow makes direct contact, i dont understand my bow?

sms_apex provided additional details:

I chose the long bow because it can be farmed theres only 1 black bow per playthrough

Sifthegreat answered:

One word scaling
The regular longbow +14 has a D scaling in strength and an S in dexterity iirc, therefore you're gaining added damage over the non scaling fire, lightning and chaos and the scaling on magic, divine, enchanted and occult must be inferior.

WHy did you chose the long bow over the bow of Pharis? As the bow of pharis has better scaling.
