LongbowLongbow is a common Bow-class weapon introduced in Golden Sun: Dark Dawn.

Basic Description Edit

A Longbow increases its wielder's attack by 22. As a common item, Longbows can be bought repeatedly for 800 coins each, and sold for 600 coins each.

Longbows can be bought in Harapa and Kaocho, and can be equipped by Karis and Amiti. The Longbow has two Jupiter-based unleashes: Double Shot and Snipe Shot. Both increase damage by a multiplier of 1.6, but Snipe Shot also has an additional chance of ignoring 50% of the target's defense.

Analysis Edit

The Longbow's usefulness will vary based on the player's preference. By the time it becomes available, Karis will already have access to the Elven Rapier, which gives double the Attack increase, and has the additional advantage of being a Jupiter-based pure-element weapon. However, players may choose to take advantage of the Longbow's two unleashes, which have the two advantages of possessing high damage multipliers, as well as being Jupiter based. By the time Amiti joins the party, however, the Longbow will have been outclassed by stronger weapons.
