  1. The best bow i have found is marjorlaine's recurve which you can get from completing leliana's character quest.

  2. Margorlane's bow from Lelianas side quest is better than Falon'dins Reach. I had that bow and did the quest and switched it out. I dont know about arrows though.

  4. The farsong sounds like it is probably the best, but ive always liked to have rapid aim bows. One way around this is to purchase Camenae's Barbute from Gorim AFTER Orzammar is opened (or maybe after your 2nd main quest, Iwent to orzammar 2nd) Its a helm with rapid aim and a chance to avoid missile attacks, but it requires 30 strength. Though there may be other better equipment that aids rapid aim. Also the helm doesnt cost much and adds a codex

  5. Yes, the best bow is Far Song as posted. As for the other guy who likes rapid aim bows, there is equipment other than bows that grants you rapid aim. For example, in RTO there is the Repeater Gloves that give you that buff. However, I forgot if there is any equipment outside of DLC that grants this buff to you (other than bows of course).

  6. The best bow is bought from the replacement blacksmith once Owen is killed. Its called Far Song, and is by far the best bow in the game. If you killed him well 2 bad you can't get the bow.

  9. Compare the stats and see which one is better to you:

    Far Song
    +2 Damage
    +3 Ranged Critical Chance
    +10 Attack
    +10 Critical Damage

    Marjolaine's Bow
    +3 Cunning
    +3 Damage
    Rapid Aim

    In my opinion the Far Song is a better bow and can be retrieved by the replacement Blacksmith.
