A decently powerful bow with piercing. UT bows tend to have a better true range, but even when you only hit 2 shots, this bow deals a good amount of damage.

These UTs are reasonably common and can be used as a replacement or swapout:

  • The Coral Bow was often seen as an upgrade, before tiered bows were reworked. This is because it had (and still has) a higher true range. When you hit 3 shots, T12 outdamages the coral bow outside of very low DEF. When hitting 2 shots, T12 outdamages at 54/48/43 DEF.

  • The Doom Bow also has a higher true range. It beats T12 (hitting 3 shots) at ~23 DEF levels and beats T12 (hitting 2 shots) at all DEF levels. However, it has a slow firerate, making it somewhat harder to aim.

Before Patch 27.7.X10.3 (Feb 2017), this item dealt 50-70 damage.

Before Exalt Version (Mar 2022), this weapon had 3 identical projectiles with arc gap of 8° (true range was 3.56) and damage of 50-75. It also had a 5% XP bonus and the following sprite:

Before the patch in February 2017, you would seldom find people using this bow. Its wide spread made it less practical relative to the Coral Bow, which almost matched its DPS with the implication that all shots hit. Owing to this, most Archers/Huntresses would use the Coral Bow instead if they possessed one. It became somewhat more usable due to the range where all 3 shots hit, increasing from a mere 2.51 to a decent 3.56.

When this weapon was reworked in March 2022, it became an even more decent option, now usable against targets with defense and being able to compete especially with Coral Bow.

The Realm Eye says:
I have just the knowledge you seek on the Bow of Covert Havens.
It shines brilliantly in the light, as if forged with extremely flexible mythsteel and has pure diamondwire as a bowstring. The latter is also considered one of the strongest materials ever formed.
They are the weapons of choice for guardian seraphs defending the portal to their realm. While even I cannot peer into what secrets they protect, countless unholy forces have tried and failed.
