Notes
This bow is almost identical in damage output to Bow of Deep Enchantment. Compared to the T14 bow, this one only has 10 less damage on the middle shot. Conversely, this bow has 10 more damage on each shot compared to the T12 Bow of Covert Havens

Even at true range, this bow is barely outdamaged by the Bow of the Void. It outdamages the Warmonger starting at around 34 defense.

When hitting only two shots (the middle one and one side shot), it outdamages Thousand Shot starting around 28 defense and is always slightly weaker than Leaf Bow at the cost of having piercing. At true range however, Mystical Energy outdamages both, and may thus be seen as a more versatile choice.

T13 bow also outdamages the Predator Bow’s front three shots starting at around 24 defense (but Predator Bow is still stronger when sitting on enemies at any reasonable defense).

The Realm Eye says:
I have just the knowledge you seek on the Bow of Mystical Energy.
This masterpiece of bowcraft was not made for mortals at all, but for the use of inconceivable, wondrous beings that reside among the stars themselves.
These could only reach us by drifting for eons away from their creators, collecting deep cosmic energy in its stellar composition to fire arrows of pure light.
