|Examine||A composite ogre bow.|
The Composite ogre bow was released with the quest Zogre Flesh Eaters and is made by using a knife on an achey tree log with wolf bones in a player's inventory to create an unstrung comp bow, which can then be strung with a bowstring to create the finished bow. It can also be bought from Hickton at Hickton's Archery Emporium in Catherby or Uglug Nar at Jiggig for 180gp.
It uses brutal arrows, which are fashioned from achey tree log arrowshafts and different types of nails, effective in killing zogres. It can also be used to fire Ogre arrows, effective in killing Chompy birds and Jubblies. This makes it more useful than the regular ogre bow, which cannot use brutal arrows.
A Ranged level of 30 is required to wield this bow. The ranged attack bonus is greater than those of the Maple Bows, which also require a Ranged level of 30. The Composite Ogre Bow is slightly faster than the Maple Longbow and slightly slower than the Maple Shortbow.
Note: This is the only composite bow that can be made through the fletching skill (level 30).
This bow cannot be used in firemaking, so bring a tinderbox if you plan to use your hunted chompies/jubblies as food right after hunting them.
