| The greatbow is a rare but extremely powerful weapon. Also called a double bow or war bow, the greatbow is physically not much larger than a longbow. However, because of the exotic double-limbed design, the greatbow has a much heavier draw weight and a considerably longer draw than a longbow of equal size, while the limb speed is considerably higher, since thinner, more responsive limbs can be used. Since a greatbow must be drawn back further than a longbow (usually to the point of the jaw or even further), it requires an exotic weapon proficiency to use properly. The greatbow belongs to the "Bows" weapon group.
