The Bow of Faerdhinen stands as a testament to elven craftsmanship, requiring a formidable level of 80 Ranged and 70 Agility to unlock its true potential. Forged from an enhanced crystal weapon seed, this magical bow generates its own arrows, providing the highest Ranged Attack and Ranged Strength bonuses at its attack speed. It can be further enhanced by corruption, preventing degradation at the cost of crystal shards.
To obtain the Bow of Faerdhinen, you must travel through the epic story of "The Song of the Elves" and master the singing bowl. Combine 100 Crystal Shards and an Enchanted Crystal Weapon Seed obtained from the Gauntlet to create this magnificent bow, with a prerequisite of level 82 Smithing and Crafting (boosable). For those who lack these skills, expert craftsmen Conwenna or Reese can help with 50 additional crystal shards.

The Bow of Faerdhinen boasts impressive stats:
Ranged Requirement: Level 80 Ranged
Agility Requirement: Level 70 Agility
Up to 20,000 Charges: Enhanced by crystal shards, preventing degradation.
When created, the bow starts off at 10,000 charges and degrades like all crystal equipment, with one charge being depleted for each hit, whether it is a successful one or not; once the bow's charges have been fully depleted, it will become inactive and lose its stat bonuses until more charges are added to it. Wearing an elven signet will not provide the chance to not consume charges.
In order to add charges to the bow, crystal shards must be used on it (this can be done before it is inactive as well), with each shard granting 100 charges, up to a maximum of 20,000. Unlike other crystal equipment, players cannot directly revert the bow to an enhanced crystal weapon seed. In order to receive the seed back, players must bring an inactive bow to a singing bowl to revert it, costing 250 crystal shards. This is not recommended, as players can just sell the inactive bow on the Grand Exchange.
Using the shard value of making divine super combat potions, the cost per charge is 134.63. Using the shard cost of trading in enhanced crystal teleport seeds to Amrod, the most efficient option for buying crystal shards directly, the cost per charge is 132.63. As a comparison, the abyssal tentacle costs 149.91 per charge. Assuming continuous use on the rapid setting, the bow will fire 1500 shots per hour, costing 201,937.50 per hour using the value of making divine super combat potions, or 198,948.28 per hour using the value from trading in enhanced crystal teleport seeds.
The bow can be upgraded by corrupting it, which requires bringing the bow and 2,000 crystal shards to a singing bowl. Doing so requires level 82 Smithing and Crafting (the levels can be boosted), and grants no experience. Using the shard value of making divine super combat potions, the cost of corrupting the bow is 26,925,000. If purchasing crystal seeds to exchange into shards, the cost for corrupting the bow is 26,526,440.00. If the player does not meet the Smithing and Crafting requirements, they can have Conwenna or Reese sing the crystal for them for an extra 1,000 crystal shards. Excess charges in the bow will be taken into account; for example, a newly created bow will have 10,000 charges and only cost 1,900 crystal shards to corrupt. The corrupted bow stays charged permanently, and does not consume any crystal shards. While the infinite version is untradeable, it can be reverted to an uncharged state at any time, but the shards used will be permanently lost in doing so.
