Bows

A solid option for ranged damage, Bows allow attacks from a distance at the expense of using a Shield. They also add no peripheral stats beyond their base attack, and have no additional effects. However, many Arrow types provide the means for additional effects: Poison, KO, etc.

For this class of weapon, the damage output is determined by the attack power of the Bow and Arrow, your character's strength and speed, and the enemy's defense. Bows do not give a bonus to evasion.
