The best bow i have to say (depends if you have shivering isles) is the madness bow(well i think its called that)

I think it is Daedric, and you must be level 20 or above for it to appear in random loot. Try Rockmilk Cave (plenty of Bandits and Marauders who have nice bows and weapons). go to www.uesp.net for more info.

If you think daedric is good when you should get shivering isles, the weapons on that are the nuts!!

Bow's are s***, you'd be better off raising your sword or blunt skills. From what i remember, the ebony bow was the best one i ever came across, f*** knows the level that it becomes abailable at though. Daedric (?) 1's are good also but they usually weigh alot more but do practically the same damage.

I won't be getting SI for a while (if ever). I only have time for 20-30 minutes of gaming a day. :cry:

The bow of Madness (19 points of damage,) while cool that it casts a random spell each time, is not as powerful as my enchanted Daedric bow (20 points of damage) that I got several levels ago.  I love those madness arrows though.  Unfortunately, I can't for the life of me find more madness ore in the wild.  Any tips?

Bleh I don't even bother with bows.  Too much trouble.  Just get a sword and hack the crap out of whatever you're fighting.  Or get a cold AOE spell and hit groups of enemies at a time.  That works great for me.

At first I though you meant Oblivion 'Blows'.  lol.

But don't bother with bows, it is a lot easier to use swords and spells.

Why not bother, they put bows in for players to use, whats the point putting in bows when people are not bothered to use them.

The best in vanilla Oblivion is Hatred's Soul.  It's a leveled item and the best version can be found once you reach level 19+.  It's found inside the Chorrol Oblivion Gate.

For all those who dont like Bows, if you level up your Marksman skill allot you can very often take out people in one shot, and most people in two. Stealth FTW!

it probably would be Daedric Bow. because mine right now isn't enchanted at all and does 21 damage

Awesome. So you take the time to create a Gamespot account, make your first post, and for what? The resurrection of a 2+ year old topic. Hats off to you, I don't know how Gamespot's user base ever got along without you. Jesus.
