Longbowmen

The [URL=/help/res?type=lbow]longbow[/URL] is an evolution of the [URL=/help/res?type=bow]bow[/URL]. It is a very powerful bow, about six feet long, very used both for hunting and warfare. The shooting rate is much higher than that of crossbows. The opponent is then subjected to a rain of arrows, which makes effective a long-range shot where the loss of precision caused by the distance is compensated by the amount of arrows sent. This is a huge difference compared to the crossbow that is used in tight fire and that necessarily becomes less precise with the distance.
