A long, strong bow made of yew. It does excellent damage in combat and a skilled archer can use it to great effect.
This weapon falls into the 'Bows' category, with a base damage of 15.

Longbows are a marked improvement over shortbows, dealing much more damage in exchange for a slight accuracy penalty and a higher skill requirement for fast attacks. Mid- and late-game bow-users will absolutely want to upgrade to one of these.
