The ogre bow is obtained from Rantz during the Big Chompy Bird Hunting quest. If you lose it, you may buy another from him for an amount which changes each time, but is in the range of 500-550 coins. You will also need this bow for Freeing Skrach Uglogwee in the Recipe for Disaster chain.
The ogre bow requires a Ranged level of 30 or higher to wield. Its damage and accuracy bonuses are identical to the maple shortbow's, though it also provides a life point boost akin to the maple shieldbow. It also fires at the same speed as the latter. This bow is also a massive improvement over its composite counterpart, as the damage bonus is over four times greater and the life point bonus does not exist with the other bow.
This bow cannot be used for making barbarian firemaking of any sort.
