For those who actually don't know the origin of this bow, it has a nice story posted here: http://wiki.ffxiclopedia.org/wiki/Yoichinoyumi

It's pretty interesting, and if it really happened, then I applaud the guy. And yet, if it did really happen (which im almost positive it didn't) there would be no way a fan could reflect arrows back. It would have to have the power of something like a wind tunnel. But, no matter.

All I gotta say, is that this bow is the ****. It generates no hate, so you don't have to worry about the main DD getting pwned because the tank can't keep hate off them. XD
#REDACTED, Posted: Oct 17 2007 at 9:41 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) The guy in the picture is obviously Muteki, He also has a Great Katana, So he can use his 2 hr, and get off 2 GK weapon skills and finish it with the Nama's arrow WS, and create 2 light skillchains.

Actually, SAM/WAR has access to Namas Arrow. >.>; The weapon gives the skill, not the subjob.
Did you lose faith?
Yes, I lost faith in the powers that be.
But in doing so I came across the will to disagree.
And I gave up. Yes, I gave up, and then I gave in.
But I take responsibility for every single sin. ♪ ♫

Thank god I stopped playing MMOs.

imagine this bow with a sam/war and a soboro sukehiro spaming namas arrow... would be f*ckin insane lol
# Apr 27 2006 at 3:04 PM Rating: Default
in FFV,there was a bow which was called "Yoichi" and arrows which were called "Yumi" ... Yoichi no Yumi means Yoichi WITH Yumi,so i believe this is the origin ... ^^

(In reference to the post below...)
Following his logic, I can see where he got that misinterpretation. Don't knock him for trying, not everyone is familiar with Japanese syntax.

Yoichinoyumi (与一の弓), "Yoichi's bow", comes from a Japanese story of the Samurai, Nasu no Yoichi. He was a Lord of the Minamoto clan during the Genpei War against the Taira/Heike. During the shore battle of Yashima, the Taira placed a mystical fan atop one of their warships, and claimed it protected them from ballistic fire and could even divert the arrows back to their enemies; they made a challenge against the Minamoto to try and take it down. Yoichi mounted a horse and entered the waters. Despite the tide, the wavering of his mount, and the teetering of the fan's ship, with a single arrow he was able to shoot and split the fan. Because of the marvelousness of the shot, both sides of the confrontation cheered Yoichi's mastery of archery. \

Edit: Damn this site and it's absurd 'reply' function.

# Nov 11 2005 at 11:00 PM Rating: Decent
It's name/title is the Bow of the Giving one. It must refer to Nasu no Yoichi, the legendary archer.

Namas arrow is a WS. I was in the dynamis LS with Muteki when he went for the Yoichinoyumi. It's weaker than sidewinder but still cool to see. It can continue a light skillchain with another light skillchain (but only up to one extra light skillchain: i.e. Savage Blade > Dragon Kick = Light > Namas Arrow = Light). Muteki now uses SAM a lot these days with the bow (you don't need to /RNG to use this WS). Namas Arrow > Meikyo Shisui > Namas Arrow = Light > Namas Arrow > Namas Arrow > Light is cool to see.

Our server currently has 3 relic weapons as far as I know:

Muteki's Yoichinoyumi
Lhexh's Bravura
Rave's Excalibur

All 3 are very cool to see.

Iria, Muteki also has Amanomurakumo, I don't know if you've said that somewhere in here, I didn't read all the posts. And there is also a JP player I think named Yoshimitsu with Kikoku. Knuckle has Spharai as well.

never get this bow

i tallied it up and only people with absolutely no life and or have thousands of dollars to buy gil from gil sellers can get this bow. Other then that roughly at 10k a piece per current you will need roughly 120,000,000 gil to get your final upgrade thats not including your little items you need to aquire on the way.
RE: never get this bow
# Mar 30 2006 at 3:34 AM Rating: Decent
or, you make 2m a week and fund your own dynamis ls. All money drops go to you because your paying for everyones entrance. Get a craft to 100 and you'll see how easy it is to makee 6m in one hour/day, depending on your craft. Just because your frustrated you can't make the money, doesn't mean that everyone who does it is a gilbuyer.

Thank You

Well I will try to answer you:

#1. well this information is from:

---> First you have to get the Relic bow (droped in Dynamis-Jeuno).

Then you have to updrade the weapon:
1- First stage you have to go to the Goblin's NPC called Switchstix (In Castle Zvahl) and pay a commision (in that case is M.Silverpiecex4) and give him the necessary items (the relic bow, Behemoth Horn, Lancewood Lbr. and Carbon Fiber)
Reward of first stage: Wolver Bow

2- Second stage you have to go to the same place and in that case the commision is M.Silverpiecex15 and you need to give him the Wolver Bow, Power Bow, War Bow, Shigeto Bow.
Reward of second stage: Dynamis Bow (to get the reward you have to wait 1 week earth time)

3- Third stage you have to give to the NM a item that Shadow NM drop in dynamis-beaucedine the item for the bow is Attestation of Transcendence. that item you have to give to the goblin's NM of others upgrades, the commision this time is L. Jadeshell x61.
Rewars of third stage: Futatokoroto. (with this bow inside Dynamis you have the Special WS that have this bow)

4- four stage an animated xxx drop in dynamis-xarcabard the item that you need for the last upgrade, Snarled Fragment, Cape Teriggan: Seashore, the commision is: R. Goldpiece x1
Reward for the last upgrade is finally the Yoichinoyumi. you can use the WS outside dynamis too.

PD: well this information is that I understand of this page I think that is correct (I dont know the time to get the reward of the third and fourth upgrade, well I supose that the goblin will tell you)

#2. No the bow works inside Dynamis and outside Dynamis.

#3. I have heard that is really hard to get this item upgraded, but are fantastic this weapons, I love it :P

#4. Well you can kill someone of square and maybe they will give you if you say that you will continue until you have your relic bow upgraded xDD

PD: Well maybe I have some mistake sorry for that :P

we have the second highest archery in the game, and its 40 points short of a ranger. Thanks square enix.

you want the capabilities of a ranger, level ranger. dont complain when you lack A- skill in archery when you're a samurai who specializes in the GK.

you'd proabalby be subbing RNG anyway, which means you would then have access to all your bow WS's

bzzt, sam has access to everything up to sidewinder, the rest are RNG onry, Namas Arrow being an exception (I would think). to use everything from flaming arrow to sidewinder, you need to be RNG main or have RNG as your subjob. Blast Arrow, Arching Arrow and Empyrial Arrow can only be used if RNG is your main job.

I'm gonna have to bust your balls...
SAM are more agile than you think... >.>
SAM CAN use "Blast Arrow" + "Arching Arrow" check http://mysterytour.web.infoseek.co.jp/ffxi/us/ to be verified on it...
We are semi-rangers... >.>

How about you check mysterytour yourself?

the final WS samurai can use is Sidewinder

RE: lol
# Mar 26 2005 at 1:30 AM Rating: Decent
joe is right, Sam/Rng don't have access to anything pass Sidewinder. ttyl >.>
RE: lol
# Aug 20 2006 at 5:23 AM Rating: Decent
from what mysterytour said,

Arching Arrow can be used at lvl 66 for rng, and at 74 for sam/rng if you can get your archery skill that high.

So sam's can archery WS's up to arching arrow unless I read something wrong.
