Bow PvE Builds for New World
Welcome to our PvE builds page for Bow. Here, we provide builds for use in PvE encounters.
Bow PvE Builds
In PvE the Bow is able to provide high single-target DPS and has a few options for quick bursts of AoE damage. It is a great option for Invasions and some expeditions.
Bow and Greatsword
The Bow will act as the primary single-target weapon, and the Greatsword will provide ways to take down clumps with AoE damage whil Bow abilities are on cooldown.
Bow and Spear
The Bow will provide great single-target damage. The Spear can also deal single-target damage, but it is paired with the Bow for its debuffs and sources of AoE crowd-control for trash packs.
Bow and Hatchet
Pairing a Bow with a Hatchet will give you a second weapon for survivability and to take down clumps. The Bow can be used for ranged targets, or just for its cooldowns, and the Hatchet can be your primary damage option. Your rotation will depend on the fight.
