ok i just wasted 90 arrows on the tail and yet no sword?

If your dexterity isn’t high enough to ‘wield the bow effectively’ I don’t think you can do enough damage to get the sword. At 13 dexterity I tried 40 arrows and got no sword, at 14 dexterity it took 16 arrows to give me the sword.

hey im a bandit and had very low dex. I tryed the bow i purchased form vendor and it wouldnt work cuz i couldnt wield it correctly. i switched to my crossbow whicth does not zoom in but as long as you dont move from the spot u were useing the bow it should shoot in exact same spot. took 13 hits and tail dropped. =)

i used a bow and wooden arrows with the minimum dex and it took me almost 20 arrows it will work as long as you keep hitting
