Notes
The sacrifices its ability to pierce multiple enemies in exchange for longer range (1.75x the true range of tiered bows) and higher DPS - able to outdamage the majority of bows up to high levels of DEF. It also gives a hefty speed boost, allowing its user to dodge more or run faster, given the Archer’s and Huntress’ low base SPD. However, aiming it is kinda difficult: its slightly slower projectile speed and wavy projectile pattern make shooting moving targets harder. Bards can negate this difficulty with the Inspired buff, boosting projectile speed (while getting the full benefit of boosted range, unlike tiered bows).

This bow shines with close-quarters, single boss fights, where it is able to tear through many bosses at a rapid pace. The Leaf Bow excels in organized Tombs; not only does its high DPS secure the soulbound damage threshold on the bosses quickly, but the lack of piercing lowers the risk of triggering other Tomb bosses. Regardless, it is recommended to keep another bow for when piercing is useful.
