Concept art

Shortbows are ranged weapons that use arrows for ammunition. Among the various types of bows, shortbows are the fastest to fire, but have limited range and punch. Shortbows can be used with special arrows which deal additional effects, such as stunning an opponent or interrupting spellcasting.
