The Thousand Shot, commonly called tshot, has the highest fire rate of any weapon in the game.
With a maxed ATT stat of 75 for bow classes, the Thousand Shot’s DPS outstrips the Coral Bow at any Def, the Doom Bow up to 43 DEF, and the Bow of Covert Havens starting at 28 DEF. It even outdamages the T13 Bow of Mystical Energy starting at 49 DEF. Although the Leaf Bow retains much higher DPS than the Thousand Shot, especially on singular boss fights, it is still not as versatile as the Thousand Shot due to its shorter range, inability to pierce, and wavy shot pattern.
This bow also has a high range of 7.59 tiles, beating the range of the Doom Bow and Leaf Bow, and only being beaten by the Bergenia Bow by 0.41 tiles. This bow’s +30 MP may help in perma-paralyzing enemies, throwing an additional trap or using the lute more often.
Overall, the Thousand Shot is a great bow that can be used even as a main bow for early-to-mid game content. So the only weakness of this bow lays in its difficulty to be acquired.
This bow is used best on bard in combination with the Wavecrest Concertina, because the high rate of fire helps activating its proc more frequently. Also the bards utility to inspire works best with this bow, due to its already high range.
Initially, the Thousand Shot was an item obtainable from alpha-testing the game, or through the developers/admins spawning it in. However, it was not a drop in that period of time.
The Thousand Shot had been in the game code for a very long time since Kabam’s ownership, and was even once leaked into the game when hackers decided to spawn the items into the game, but was quickly removed after the developers found out.
Before it was put into the game again and given a drop location, this bow was planned to be a vanity item, with only 50–75 damage and a 7.2 range, which mockingly rivals the DPS of the Tier 9 Verdant Bow.
Before Exalt Version 126.96.36.199 (May 2021), this item dealt 40-130 damage and gave -5 SPD on equip.
