Fixed some bias in part of the article where someone had voiced several opinions. I removed it. 20:15, April 21, 2010 (UTC)

Does it still have a special attack?

I suppose it has a special attack but what I'd like to know is if it's possible to buy multiple longbow sights. With items such as coal bag and gem bag it's impossible to own more than one. Lathow 01:49, April 25, 2010 (UTC)

I purchased two longbow sights so I suppose you can own multiples :p I also checked the special attack, it's still present. Lathow 08:00, April 28, 2010 (UTC)

Does the chaotic crossbow predecede this one? Shirley they were released at the same time... --Armcie 22:41, May 30, 2010 (UTC)

Yup, it has the same special attack.. Power shot. Omg that special is so weak.. Chaotic crossbow can't predecede this one, you are right.. Should be changed somehow. Drikam 10:29, June 13, 2010 (UTC)

Speed[edit source]

After my own personal testing, im sure the Magic Longbow (Sighted) is faster than a normal Magic Longbow, Equal to that of a Crystal Bow. 03:46, June 30, 2010 (UTC)

It is established that adding sighted to the bow, make it faster so "Interestingly, the sighted longbow fires faster than the unsighted longbow; this is probably because it is easier to aim.".. is not interesting" at all. Deleted, and not to mention it's 100% speculation.

TzHaar Fight Cave[edit source]

I've given it some thought and I can't find anyone who will have a serious discussion about it.

Would the Magic Longbow (sighted) be useful in the Fight Cave? I understand it is slow, but given the fact that is is very accurate and can fire rune arrows, I thought it may be a better choice over a Crystal Bow. (This is my first post and I'm sorry if I sould have made this in the Fight Cave talk page.) Err... 23:16, July 12, 2010 (UTC)

Though it would hit more frequently, it would do less damage by alot. Since Rune Arrows only have +49 Ranged strength. Crystal bow is better than that, even at 1/10. So it could be used an alternative for those who have not done Roving Elves, or do not have the right Ranged Level. ~Elysian Aura

When used with god arrows it is both strong (can hit over 320) and very accurate. Great for bosses with high defence.

Its a very useful weapon.[edit source]

I love my sighted magic longbow. It is so accurate I can be in full barrows and still hit like I am in d hide, or even Armadyl. Its perfect for melee/range hybriding as it can save on inventory space for armor (Unless you need mage protection.) The hitting power lacks of course, but it hits often enough to negate that when training or pking. I would rather hit a 225, 177, in the time it takes to hit one 367 or something. However, the lack of shield or book can be troublesome for certain players, but you can were full melee armor to make up for the shield.

The special is quite weak, I think the highest I have ever seen it hit is maby a 115, I am not sure, it usually hits 7-50 damage, but, guess what? Its a 100% hit chance that can be used twice, almost 3 times. I use it for anti Dharok or killing someone down to a sliver. How many people here have been trading whip hits with someone, your both almost dead, and your both having a 0 fest. Pull out the sighted magic longbow! Finish them off.

Page Name[edit source]

The item in game is still named Magic longbow (sighted). Shouldn't the page name be the same as the item's name in the game? Mumon (talk) 02:44, December 8, 2012 (UTC)
