Dragonrider Bow is a weapon in Dark Souls 2.

 

Bow wielded by Dragonrider, King Vendrick's royal guard.

Merely drawing this bow requires inhuman strength, but each shot has deadly potential.

Demands great skill of its wielder, and thus served to test the worthiness of those who aspired to join Dragonriders.

Hints and Tips:

  • Strongest bow in terms of damage per shot; in turn sacrificing draw speed and stamina consumption with each shot.

      This thing is ****ing gnarly. Great for luring, chips 95% of most mobs health away with WOODEN ARROWS ffs. Its too slow to main but if you’re a strength build looking to have some sort of long range attack at your disposal you can’t go wrong with this beast of a bow. Pair it with a Craftsman’s Hammer and you’re golden.

        Is this a regular bow or a greatbow? Because the description implies the latter, but it's listed everywhere as the former.

          Use magic arrows to maximize magic dmg. Just like the knight crossbow from ds3, it performs best with the ammunition that correlates to the split dmg

            Best bow for str in terms of scaling and by the looks of it infusing this would be really worth it as there is little to none downsides to using this bow with a infusion
