I'm new to the game and I need to know if an Orcish Bow is worth something or rare.

    +2 tiles in range and adds a little archery skill like many other magic bows. Worth 3000 - 8000 gold each depending on your buyers need.

    The extra +2 range on orc bows is always fun out on the water while pirating and chasing down fishermen trying to flee :D

    Don’t Orcish bows also take 2 arrows to shoot instead of 1?

    As far as I know they were just 1 arrow, but it's been ages since I used one. I had like 90 of them in my bank when I first started and farmed orcs for gold thinking they were good, but found out they were pretty common and nobody was buying them.

    Orc Bows are fairly common drops off of Orc Scouts, so definitely not rare, but all depends if someone will buy them or not. I had them on my vendor for 2k each when I started and rarely sold one. Maybe it's different now since that was over a year ago.

    If you need any help with armor, bandages, etc, look for me in IRC on "Sky" - I'd be glad to make you a few sets of stuff to hunt in

    I thought orc bows used 2 arrows and had a damage bonus.

    [, post: 5917, member: 55"]I requote="Chrisviewed this and it is coded specifically to use two arrows per shot, and is capable if doing more damage than a normal bow. However in a quick web search I was unable to find any information on this weapon and the proper functionality. I will keep looking, however this seems to be functioning properly as coded.[/quote]

    Jumped on to test it out. Fires 1 arrow at a time, no additional damage beyond the +15 archery. This is basically a store bought bow with +15 archery, +2 range, and a fancy color :)

    Does the plus 15 archery still help a character that already has gm archery ?

    Yes, the fact that archery is added and not tactics makes archery skill the highest % chance to hit a target.
