Dragonrider Bow is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.
Longbow of the Dragonriders, who served the Old King of Want.
The Dragonriders were the Old King's royal guard, and great strength was demanded of them. Merely drawing this bow calls for inhuman strength. The worthy few who can master this bow, however, use it to devastating effect.
Pull the arrow even further back for a more powerful shot that can also pierce shields.
Notes and Tips:
- Cannot be Buffed or Infused.
- Reinforced with Titanite Scales.
- The "Old King of Want" referenced in the Bow's description is most likely King Vendrick from Dark Souls 2. The Dragonriders were his elite guard.
- Cannot running attack or roll attack.
- Does pure physical damage unlike Dark Souls 2 where it had split magic damage.
- On a 40/40 build, this is the strongest bow in the game, with 305 AR.
- Damage may vary depending on ammunition(arrows).
Location/Where to Find
- Found at Smouldering Lake, on a ledge at the end of the ruins where you fight the Black Knight and up to the ballista cliff's two ladders. The lootable corpse is off a ledge to the right at the top of the ladders.
