Notes[edit]

  • This skill sets a single flight time and arc for standard arrows fired from any bow:
    • All standard arrows travel at the same (faster) rate and fly nearly parallel to the ground.
    • Bow attack skills benefit from the bonus damage, but follow the original time and arc, e.g. Broad Head Arrow travels more slowly, Quick Shot moves twice as fast as the default for the bow. Arcing Shot is an exception to this; its arc is greatly reduced.
  • When this preparation is used near a Favorable Winds spirit, the bonus damage stacks, but the speed does not (i.e. arrows still move twice as fast).
    • Read the Wind is a slightly better choice for Flatbows, since the lowered arc makes it less likely that foes will dodge.
