Fun for a laugh or messing around (80-something TP from Barrage...).
Possibly has some use if you don't have a Eurytos', but there's simply better options.
I like it

I bought it for 10k, and I'm doing as much dmg with this as I was doing with my War bow +1. I would like to get an E. bow to test out and see how big of a difference it is, but I'm hoping to get a Selene's bow soon.

And with the +racc of this bow, it helps me a lot since I'm one of the few RNG's that don't sub NIN. Subbed WAR, had +25 Ratt and +24 racc and was hitting about 70% of the time and my sidewinders were hitting for around 900 to 1000 dmg each to the Marsh Murres (would miss 1 out of every 10 fired about), and with hunters prelude and Valor minuet III, I was hitting 1100-1300 sidewinders and hitting about 90% of the time with this bow.

This bow isnt the E-bow which i would kill to get, but its very good on the other hand. Only around 50k so not pricey at all and that rng'd acc. bonus is quite nice. Sidewinder (the bow rng's godly move) is very inaccurate and most people try to save close to 200% TP or use it during Sharpshot to increse its accuracy. But with this bow u can fire off Sidewinder as soon as u get 100% TP and still be pretty accurate. Which in turn means youll be doing more dmg than those who miss Sidewinder alot or those who wait a long time for TP build up or Sharpshot to activate. Not to mention youll get TP faster per shot than the War bow +1 or the E-bow, so youll be able to use Sidewinder more frequent. Since u get the rng'd acc. bonus from this unless u really dont wanna miss u can use Yellow Curry instead of Squid Sushi which will even out the dmg beetween E-bow and Sarnga if not doing more than E-bow with the Sushi. War bow +1 will jsut be demolished by this bow. The delay is a bit high but thats a hidden blessing. It will not only increse TP per shot but cut down on arrow use and save valuable gil for those like me who use Ice arrows or Kaburka arrows (ignore the spelling) whci are 7k and 10k per stack. This is the bow i will use until relic, Master casters bow, or by some leap of faith i get an E-bow.

-Thats my opinion and observasion hopefully it helps you choose what to get when the time comes.

-Sorry for any spelling errors.

look at the delay. no attack bonus, smaller str and no agi bonus, same base weapon attack. this is garbage.

I use a Eurytos' Bow, and i have been in two pts with 2 diff rngs using this bow. 1st pt was in Onzono mithra (im a mithra also) i was outdmging her by about 20-25 per hit and on sidewinder 100-120. however she did hit slighty more often on sidewinder then me i would hit 8 out of 10 she would hit 9 out of 10. 2nd pt was last night in bibiki bay against dhalmels. this time i use sole sushi and so did she (hume rng) my side winder on average was 700-750 hers was 570-620 (varies with dhalmel berserk). only clear advantage that i have seen is you can probably use yellow curry and have the same accuracy as a sole sushi user with a Ebow/War bow +1. but in my opinion it isnt worth it. The delay is murder especially if you miss and the dmg is weakened. Rngs are DD/puller

Musketeer gun +1 and Sole sushi with 2x Minuet:
Slug shot=2070DMG When Dhamels use Berserk, 950 or so when they don't. And about 150 a shot regular 354 a shot if they berserk.

Imo Ebow is over rated I love my gun but I want my Obow ; ;

Ebow isn't really an option for most people. Ultra-rare and ultra-expensive. Compared to War bow +1, the only thing this bow has going for it is that the huge delay = masses of TP from barrage.

Personally I'd use war bow +1 ==> othinus' bow ==> gendawa

This weapon does not exist. There is a Sarnga, but no "Sarnga's Bow."

Best to use the correction link instead of posting... less chance for karma hunters to hit you :)

I really like this bow for exping. I did some calculations and you get TP for skillchains about as fast as warbow or ebow... and you use less arrows. Let me repeat. You use less arrows. Since most of the damage comes from SC at that level... I say up the delay!

# Aug 28 2004 at 2:36 PM Rating: Decent
this would be so much better if it were sam only or at least rng/sam because I can see a samurai getting so much more out of this bow than a ranger
I can see a ranger using it for farming (guanteed hits against too weak mobs and with this much dmg you'd pretty much 1-shot them so delay's not an issue) but exp they're better off with Ebow or at least war+1
but a sam/rng would use this in exp because at this level, our ranged acc is only good enough to hit consistently when we use sharpshot so this would be excellent for having stronger sidewinders and getting more tp out of barrage (and we all know that sam is all about the tp)

i could never really see why youd want to give up speed for power..why not get 3 shots off before this shoots one and do more damage..arrows? i suppose for the sake of your wallet this would be -decent-

If you really feel like that then go try Loxley Bow and see if you still feel that way. You wont...

The problem with low damage but fast over high damage and slow is that you will have to cut through the enemies VIT and Defence each shot. By bundling it into more damage at the expense of a longer delay you have to cut through the defence less often per damage point over time.
# Aug 11 2004 at 8:27 PM Rating: Default
yes it does deal a slight bit more damage than the war bow +1, plus it has the str+1 and agi+1 as we as accuracy +8 instead of +2. Also since sarnga is a rng only weapon, you get a tp boost. War bow +1 gives 14% per shot as sarnga gives 16% (18% is you sub sam >^.^<) not to big of a bonus since it takes a full 8 seconds or so to fire, but you notice a huge difference on barrage.

Is this bow used to synth something else?
Or maybe used to trigger an event?
I was looking at sales history in jeuno AH today, and noticed that the same ppl kept buying this bow over and over, but werent selling it back.
I dunno, maybe it sells to vendors for more than AH sells it for...

Does anyone know if this deal more dmg than War Bow +1 ( dmg 66, Ranged Attack + 18 ) ?
# Mar 08 2004 at 10:31 PM Rating: Decent
The delay is 720 instead of 270.
