"Legend has it that the Bow of Shadows was forged by the Daedra Nocturnal. The legendary ranger, Raerlas Ghile, was granted the Bow for a secret mission that failed, and the Bow was lost."

The Bow of Shadows is an enchanted bow found in The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind.


The Bow of Shadows is a legendary artifact said to have been forged by the Daedric Prince Nocturnal. It was granted to a legendary Ranger, Raerlas Ghile, for a mission that he ultimately failed, but before he did, he took down scores of his enemies.[1] It is rumored that the Second Era Dunmer assassin Dram once wielded this weapon.[1][2]


The bow is reported to give the user the ability of Invisibility and increased Speed.[1]


In The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, this bow is in the possession of Goris the Maggot King, a Dunmer Necromancer living in Venim Ancestral Tomb, which is located slightly north of the Ashlander Zainab Camp.[3]
