This bow was woven from the air itself by Eiolaiphi the air mage as a gift for one of the children of Uskayaw. The bow can be pulled with incredible speed, and it launches swift and true. It is also nearly indestructable, which is fortunate given that the original owner was ripped to pieces by jealous celebrants.

Desirability

Zephyr is a near-perfect weapon for anyone with a good Bows skill. Experienced archers may occasionally prefer a highly-enchanted longbow with the vorpal or holy wrath brand for dealing more damage per hit and taking out heavily armoured opponents, but a speed brand on a +8 longbow is an extremely effective combination against just about any target. Overall, a highly respectable weapon.

Trivia

Prior to version 0.20, this was known as the bow of Krishna "Sharnga".
