    • This is the best Light Bow in the game for Dex or Balanced Str/Dex users. It has a little less damage than the Misbegotten Shortbow but weighs 0.5 less, and the Range of 29 as opposed to the Misbegotten's 25 more than makes up for a little less base damage.
      If you are a Str purist the only Light Bow worth your consideration is the Misbegotten, UNLESS you literally only use a bow to pull ranged enemies, in which case you should check out the Harp Bow, which hits like a wet noodle, but weighs the least.

        It also drops at the academy of Raya Lucaria from the one pulley crossbow wielding guy in the hall after dropping down from getting the 2nd glintstone key

          What is with the weapon balance in this game? All these shortbows just seem like worse versions of the shortbow

          • Anonymous

            I was watching a video on this for the weapon in tombsward ruins. Showed it drops with a ash of war rappid hit or barrage? Confused

              Wanted to see if there was a better shortbow than the starter or the Composite, and found this beauty. Came South Caelid really early, around lv45. With only 115 discovery, I thought farming this was going to be ***** of a grind, but I got this to drop from the Page at Redmane around the 6th or 7th try. Makes me just as happy as my early Flamberge drop in DS3.

                At plus 18 and 64 dexterity composite bow is objectively better but only by a very small amount
                132+44 vs 132+42

                  Confirming I got the drop from the lone High Page (fire crossbow guy) in the hallway before Azur's Glintstone Staff, above the Church of the Cuckoo grace in Raya Lucaria Academy.

                    got it from the guy with the thrusting sword and crossbow in redmane castle, not sure what that enemy is called.

                      Man if these upgrade and scaling numbers are accurate this weapon is objectively worse than the basic short bow. Same damage worse scaling.

                        Had this drop from an assassin near the beginning of the capital city (passed the snowman and up the stairs). He also dropped page hood.

                          Dropped for me in Caria Manor, from the assassins on stairs just before boss. The bow has just slightly higher damage than basic shortbow.

                          • Anonymous

                            I had this drop from the bow wielding enemies on the stairs leading up to Royal Knight Loretta. No idea about drop rate.
