At the Chorrol Oblivion Gate, the bow and the mace are located in the sunken tower, directly behind when entering the plane itself. As the tower is sunken, there is no door, instead there is a hidden cave/tunnel called the Fume Vaults. The entrance to Fume Vaults are located on islands away towards the north/northwest of the sunken tower.
To get there, one will have to jump small lava streams and broken bridges. A large metal gate has toppled to the ground allowing anyone to cross it like a bridge; take it and the player will be on the island where the entrance to the Vaults is. It's hidden and won't show on the map, and it's at lava level. Head towards the north tip of the island, around a small round lava pond, and drop down over a large boulder, the door is just on the right.
It is highly advisable to acquire the Hatred's Soul bow as the 19+ version, as it is the strongest bow in-game; the 15–18 bow is the next and the 11–14 variety is the same strength as the Daedric bow, not counting the enchantments on Hatred's Soul. Also, Hatreds Soul is much lighter than the Daedric bow.
If the Hero misses it going through the Chorrol gate, or they obtained a lower level version, there is a one in seven chance that entering a non-quest related gate will bring them to the same Oblivion world. The gate at Fort Sutch has a one in four chance of being this world. Since it always spawns in the same Oblivion world, it's possible to obtain multiple copies of the bow.
