Bows have relatively high Physical Attack, making them potent weapons throughout the early and middle parts of the game. But being naturally two-handed weapons, Bows will later get outclassed by one-handed weapons used in conjunction with the Two-Handed or Dual Wield abilities.

Note : All Bows have an Aim stat of 95 and do 50% more damage against Aerial enemies.
