War bows are two-handed ranged weapons in Pillars of Eternity. They have a moderate attack speed, and deal a high amount of Pierce damage.


Items in italics are quoted directly from the game.

Though war bows are outnumbered by hunting bows in the Dyrwood, war bows are more popular among professional soldiers and adventurers. With a high draw weight and respectable speed, they possess a power unmatched by magical implements and don't have the lengthy reloading times of crossbows and firearms.
