    Searched but couldn't find the answer to these,

    On the wiki I see the "great longbow" but I don't see it for sale on Theo the blacksmith at Owl's Head. Is this available elsewhere in game still?

    Also, does any one know of or have a list of what bows and crossbows are available in game?
    Love the different models : )

    Thanks!

    Most of the bows are on player vendors or drops from Elves or archer types or you can craft your own.
    Several vendors offer bows , you can get one you like and apply a pattern to it to make it look like something else.

    I've not seen the one you mention in the game but perhaps @Alley Oop will reply with an answer.

    Wow, that article is from March 2014. I don't even remember that bow, but I'm sure it was removed a long time ago. I'll tag it to verify in the wiki.

    I am looking for more decor for my archery shop, thus looking for more bow models in game. Was sad to see that the crossbow of accuracy is the standard crossbow model.

    Freely avaiable is only the standard bow and elven bow as loot/salvaged pattern

    Everything else is either past teleton rewards or Founders bow, it is not like melee weapons where you have more choices/patterns.

    So if you do not want to buy from other players then you are sadly limit to theese two.

    Happy to buy from other players, also looking for crossbow models. Just would like a list to see what’s out there for now. Already have founders bows, and the newish darkstarr crossbow. I’m aware of the thorn and ice bow. Also I think there are a few different crossbows?

    Also you get a crossbow and special loot from the fiona Fitzowen quest obtained in ardoris. I'm sure her last name is wrong but it is fitz something or other.

    Please do come by! Shop is “Alioth’s Mercantile” in Crossroads Alley - in the NE corner, it is brand new so there is not much there yet - soft opening with a few things on the vendor was yesterday but planning on getting vendor stocked better and having a grand opening soon : ) will have a heavy discount on everything listed when that happens. Going to try to sell a ton of stuff off cheap in the next few days to raise some funds to get the shop going.

    My plan for now is to sell a lot of bow making supplies for players to craft their own, and low to low-mid range bows for new players. Someday maybe higher end stuff but not for now. Also enchanted fishing rods, and cheap potions, collars and scrolls.

    - iolo's royal founder crossbow
    - iolo's founder crossbow
    - default crossbow model
    - despicable vile crossbow
    - fitzowen's crossbow
    - darkstarr crossbow
    - polynesian bow (stretch goal not reached)
    - lord british longbow (stretch goal not reached)

    - ornate shogun bow
    - sun longbow (former R56 stretch goal)
    - moon crossbow (former R56 stretch goal)
    - Aether Bow (upcoming R56 stretch goal)

    Greetings @Alioth. Can I assume that the bows you have listed are the bows you have? I have a few not listed you may be interested in for display.

    Edit: Actually I looked and you have all the models I have as royal founder as well as all the telethon bows and crossbows. R53 does have an all metal crossbow coming out probably next release.

    Depressingly low ammount of models (given beside the elven bow model all are of limited stock)

    Agreed - very disappointed to learn that the beautiful model for the FitzOwen Crossbow is locked as a quest item and unable to be used to decorate with. Stats are not that great on the weapon, so I am really confused why it can't be traded or decorated with.

    Bows are kinda not the favourite of the deisgner(s) that much is clear by now. I mean look where bows are placed, if, at the teleton reward, in regions where it becomes unlike that they need to make them.
