legend golden

The Golden Bow is an item in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

It is a Gerudo made bow with a base attack power of 14, though this may be increased by certain weapon bonuses.

Like the Phrenic Bow, instead of the standard over the shoulder view the bow provides a first person perspective view that offers greater precision though reduces Link's field of vision though has a greater base attack power than the Soldier's Bow, Phrenic Bpw, Swallow Bow, and Lynel Bow.

Its base durability is also greater than the Silver Bow which has one point higher in terms of base attack power though lacks the Golden Bow's first person perspective firing.

It lacks the range of Rito made bows and is inferior to the Falcon Bow, Great Eagle Bow, Knight's Bow, and Royal Bow.

However its durability is greater than the Royal Guard's Bow despite its higher base attack power though this is due to the "Royal Guard" series having poor durability that renders them impractical as armaments.

As it is made of gold it is a metallic bow and will not burn, though will attract lightning during thunderstorms, though this apparently is of little concern for the desert dwelling Gerudo as it hardly ever rains in the desert which would make thunderstorms an even rarer occurance.

As it is metallic it can be picked up using the Magnesis Rune.

It was designed by the Gerudo for both hunting and warfare, being engineered to strike down distant targets whether they be animals or enemies.

It is popular due to its fine ornamentation along its limbs.

It is commonly found in the Gerudo province which includes Gerudo Desert and Treasure Chests found in the Gerudo Highlands regions.

One spawns in the barracks for Gerudo soldiers in the western tip of Gerudo Town, in the northwestern part of the barracks next to where Teake stands.
