Disambig icon.png This article is about the bow type. For the weapon with the same name, see Longbow (weapon).

A longbow is a bow type. It has a long range, medium attack speed and medium arc. Longbows are used as an alternative to flatbows when Read the Wind or Favorable Winds are not available, as the high arc of flatbows would lead to too many misses. They are also often used for pulling.
