Understanding my Bow?

  1. 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?

Accepted Answer

  1. 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.
