An improvement on the design of the bow constructed of alternating layers of flexible wood like yew and elm, the longbow is larger, designed to launch arrows with uncanny accuracy and with deadly force. Developed in response to heavy armour, these weapons can punch through a knight’s defences, making them a popular choice for regiments throughout the Old World. Bretonnian archers and several regiments in the Empire use longbows.[1a][2a]
