Millwood Greatbow is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3. It is part of the Ashes of Ariandel DLC



Greatbow crafted with black oak and wielded by Millwood Knights. Only specialized great arrows can be fired from the bow.

It is said that the Millwood Knights used these to face their sworn enemy, the Abyss Dragon.

Skill: Pierce Earth

Fire a greatarrow with a burst of strength and a prayer that violently shakes its target and explodes on impact.



Notes and Tips:

  • Cannot be Infused nor Buffed.
  • Upgrades with Twinkling Titanite
  • The weapon has an exceptionally low range of 39. This is the lowest of all the bows.
  • Has an A scaling in Strength and the highest base damage out of all the Greatbows, making it perfect for Strength builds.
  • A suicide run might be necessary here without a friendly phantom, as there are several strong enemies that have a tendency to aggro you at once.  One possible tactic would be to try and run past all of the enemies, grab the bow from the corpse, then jump off the ridge immediately to the right to escape. Rapport pyromancy works on Farron Followers and Millwood Knights, but not on wolves.

 

Location/Where to Find

  • From the Snowfield bonfire, proceed to the collapsing ridge over the forest of wolves. From here, stay to the right to avoid most wolves until you reach the cliff at the bottom of the hill, then head left to reach the Millwood ruins. From here, go around the ruins to the left, up the small hill with several screeching tree enemies and wolves on top of it. On the left side of the hill will be some wolf enemies and two Millwood Knights with bows surrounding a corpse containing the bow and five arrows.

      They could of at least mention there's a big ass wolf at the end of the wolf infested snowfield! And these damn ass tree lady things with their frosty breath and Ember flares and their damn grab and frosts breath like wtf! Even the Millwood guys aren't any easier.

        If you want to grab this bow as fast as possible and bail you can use a shortcut I found. Right next to the bow there's a part of a cliff with a big rock. Run at the cliff next to the rock and you'll notice you go about halfway up it. Run at it and jump and you'll land right on top of the cliff.

          if your having problems getting the bow you can kill the trees easy with a fire bomb which makes them flail a bunch and its basically a free kill unless your weapon sucks than the millwood knights are easy with spells. Im using lightning arrow which makes the fight stupid easy

            It's fun to knock Sister Fried on her butt over and over and over again. The bow trivializes the fight. And...She disappears but the great arrows filling her don't!

              feels so good to watch a host with 3 phantoms and a blue die because he thinks i missed the shot until it blows up sending him flying over an edge to his death.

                The weapon skill causes the shot arrow to deal more damage to the target, and then explode dealing additional damage in the vicinity. The strength of the explosion depends on the type and physical attack power of the arrow used. For a +5 Millwood Greatbow at 60/60 DEX and STR, the weapon art explosion for Millwood Greatarrows dealt 877 damage, for Dragonslayer Greatarrows 855 damage, for Lightning Dragonslayer Greatarrows 667 damage, and for Onislayer Greatarrows 761 damage to the Firekeeper in the Shrine.

                  Someone should fix the name of the bow because it says "Darkmoon Longbow is a weapon in Dark Souls 3. It is part of the Ashes of Ariandel DLC", Instead of Millwood Greatbow is a weapon in Dark Souls 3. It is part of the Ashes of Ariandel DLC.

                    Possibly the best greatbow not only in DS3 but in the entire souls series. Especially powerful for stealth pvp sniping during invasions. Only needs one attack stat to reach optimal AR as well.

                    Damage of WA explosion is not reduced with distance at all, so it can be used for extremely long-range shenanigans, i've been able to damage people standing in a middle of Ariandel Chapel's courtyard while being on another side of the bridge with it for full damage.

                      Very heavy damage potential. Headshots hit in around 1000 range. For range fall off i find it better to just use regular great arrows, the dmg difference in negligible (plus the hawk ring obv)

                      The weapon art only triggers if the arrow hits the ground and not on a direct body hit (unless it kills what it was shot at and goes through)
