How do fire arrows work?

Fire arrows are used to quickly burn up enemies, but are also important towards the end of the game. You mainly use them to light unlit torches in the Fire Temple, and during the "trials" in the castle during the last couple hours of the game.

On the Nintendo 3DS, the controls are: Go to "Items". Tap your bow, then assign it to a button, I, X,Y, or II, then double tap it to select "fire arrows." Press the assigned button, then aim and shoot at something flammable by pressing the button again.

Controls for the original game: Press START, go to ITEMS, select your bow and arrow, assign it to DOWN, LEFT, or RIGHT, then select FIRE ARROWS. Hit START, to return to the game, and then tap the assigned button, then aim with the middle joystick and hit the assigned button to fire.

If you are using another version of the game, such as the Wii Virtual Console edition, or an emulation, please consult the manual.

To open the manual for the Wii edition, press the HOME button while your game is running and hit "Manual."

What type of tree is used to make bows?

I'm by no means a proffessional bowyer, in fact I'm hardly a bowyer at all. But I do enjoy self-made bows quite a bit and take a lot of fun from trying to make my own.

There are quite a few trees that can be used to make bows, some more suited than others depending on the design, level of skill and experience of the person involved, and other factors. Yew, ever since the british discovered it's use in this context, is considered one of the finest woods for use in a D-shaped (As in a D-like cross-section) longbow, as the lighter sapwood is a natural backing for the heavier, stronger heartwood which gives the bow it's power. This sort of wood does take a considerable amount of experience and skill to manipulate and read properly, so it may not be a good choice for the fledging archer/bowmaker.

However, yew is considered inferior when making what is known as a "flatbow". This means that the back (side of the bow facing away from the archer) and the belly (side of the bow facing towards the archer) of the bow limbs are flat and usually wide, varying anywhere from 1 1/2" to 3" wide.

Osage orange, in contrast, excels when used in a flatbow, especially when the latewood (usually a darker orange hue) is thicker and more abundant than the lighter-colored earlywood. Osage is very durable and resilliant to natural weather conditions, aesthetic abuse, and the like.

Other woods such as hickory, oak, cedar, ash, etc. also make wonderful bows, but the characteristics and behaviors of each wood must be considered when designing a bow, no matter what format (longbow, flatbow, indian-style D-bow, etc.) you decide on.

If you want more information, I highly recommend a book series titled "The Traditional Bowyer's Bible." It's not a step-by-step guide, rather a compilation of knowledge contributed by numerous experts on the subject and put into varying chapters. Other titles like "The Bent Stick" and "The Witchery of Archery" are exceptional choices as well for seeking knowledge on the subject of bowyer. Online resources like and the leatherwall are a veritable limitless source of knowledge and input.

Medieval Warfare

Do bow and longbow arrows work with crossbows and do crossbow bolts work with bows and longbows?

No and no.

Specifically, arrows for bows are longer and more flexible as a slight flex can improve an arrow's flight, but crossbows would be too powerful and break the arrow.

Crossbow bolts/quarrels are far too short to be used correctly in a bow, as a real archer would never partially draw the bow to shoot an arrow, yet a bolt would not be long enough for the archer to draw back to his or her anchor point (that same place on their face they always draw back to, to make shots powerful and consistent).

What makes an arrow fishtail in flight?

Fishtailing is typically caused by a spine issue. If your spine is too weak or too stiff, then your arrow will not clear the riser of the bow cleanly (see archers paradox). Fishtailing can also be caused by torquing your grip or other form errors. If your are shooting vanes then fishtailing might be caused by a clearance issue.

To address fishtailing, address form issues. If the problem persists, make sure your vanes are clearing your rest cleanly. If you shoot traditional (off the shelf with feathers) then your problem probably isn't clearance. At this point fix your spine. I do this by bareshaft tuning, done out to twenty yards. To confirm that my spine is correct, I shoot through paper, and shoot big fixed blade broadheads. This should address any fishtailing issues.


What is the difference between a crossbow and a compound bow?
