The Black Bow of Pharis is a bow in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

The preferred black bow of the heroic archer Pharis.
Has a longer range than standard bows, but is more difficult to use. Without proper abilities, results will be underwhelming.

AvailabilityEdit

In the Darkroot Garden, it is dropped by the Forest Hunter Archer. Killing her counts as a betrayal against the Forest Hunter covenant if the player is a member at that time.

If she dies by falling (or being kicked) off a cliff, reloading the game will cause the items that would have been dropped to appear on the spot where she first spawned.

CharacteristicsEdit

The Black Bow of Pharis has very high range. It has the highest dexterity scaling of any bow in the game, but low base damage, making it better suited for dex-builds. The S scaling transfers to either intelligence or faith for the magic or divine paths, respectively. This means that there is no benefit to upgrading down the enchanted or occult path (besides the occult modifier, which only improves damage against a few foes) since scaling does not go beyond S and the enchanted and occult paths reduce both base damage and dexterity scaling more than the magic or divine paths.

NotesEdit

Once the Forest Hunter Covenant has been joined, It is not possible for the player to kill the Forest Hunter Archer without breaking the Covenant. It is possible, however, to lure a Demonic Foliage to the location and have it attack her. Alternatively, the player may do a series of kicks to knock her off the cliff edge. Either method will not result in the player betraying the covenant.
