A wonderful golden bow that once belonged to a foreign god. It works best with special arrows which are not generally available.

The "special arrows" do not exist in-game, but luckily this weapon is perfectly effective without them.


Sharnga is a near-perfect weapon for anyone focused in Bows. Experienced archers may occasionally prefer a highly-enchanted longbow with the vorpal 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 low- and medium-AC targets. Overall, a highly respectable weapon.
