A bow created from the soul of Nashandra.

The old one of the Abyss was reborn in death, split into miniscule fragments, and spread across the land.

The smallest of the pieces, sensing its own fragility, yearned for what it lacked.

Scholar of the First Sin changed to:

Light and Dark are two sides of the same coin, much like the soul and the curse. The beings who presented themselves to those in search of kinghood were drawn to their awesome strength.

Hints and Tips:

  • While Two-handing, use the strong attack of your respective off-hand to unleash a lightning-tinged special attack. Causes heavy Poise damage; as well as medium Lightning damage depending on the wielder's Faith stat.
  • Special attack does not require arrows and will deplete 10 durability (or 5 with Bracing Knuckle Ring +2) per use, damage increases with Lightning infusion.
  • The special attack has no tracking, is slow to fire, and can easily miss if not planned carefully. It also consumes a significant amount of stamina.

      Amazing alternative for faith users who don't want to worry about running out of ammo compared to lightning spears. Does 366 lightning damage at 54 faith +5 with lightning infusion.

        For some characters, the special attack is used when pressing the "light attack" button instead of the one used for "heavy attack". I don't know why this happens, or when, or how.
