This is something that makes no sense to me. I have never (outside of RuneScape) seen people using bows as a shield as well. So the fact they were previously longbows made sense since that's a longer range than regular ones.


Why would you even put a shield on a bow? It seems very impractical to me since it can hinder the ability to aim an arrow properly.

Only reason they did it is so that you can use arrow style ranged weapons with defensive abilities. That's all.



“I had a feeling we weren’t coming back from this fight when it began.”

“Do you have any regrets?”

“I don’t. It seems surprising, I know, but I wouldn’t change a thing. This is how it was meant to be.”

“Huh, you never really notice how lovely the day is until you realize you’ll never see it again.”
