You'll have to forgive me if this has been posted elsewhere in a comprehensive form. But for those of you experienced, uber Rangers out there, is there a list or a link to one of the best Ranger bows, per tier? (Most likely starting with Tier 3.) Or if not the "best" bows (often subjective) maybe just a list of the top 3 bows per tier? This would include more than just fabled but also bows the non-raiding Ranger should be using. If I can get the information together I'll edit this post to update. :robothappy: Any thoughts?

Two bow list posts withing minutes of each other?  You guys must think alike!

In any case, here are a few off the top of my head

T2 - Gregors Old Bow, from Gregor in Eldar Grove

T3 - One Eye Bow, quest from centaur in TS, near the western beach

       Stormfire, from statue knight (starts with "V" i think) in first hallway of Stormhold.

T4 - Bloodlet/Sureshot, from greenhood quest series. Shadow on the Zek docks

T5 - I just went straight to an imbued cedar bow.   Valon bow is a nice fabled drop

T6 - imbued Ironwood. Better then pretty much anything in the tier

For T5, your fabled choices are the Valen Bow (off contested epic mobs) or the Jungle Bow (out of Spirits of the Lost raid zone).  Your best bow for a non-raid reward would be the Soulsucker from Nektropos Castle the Return.
 
For T6:  AFAIK, the only non-crafted bow in all of T6 is the fabled Darkfury Longbow from the Courts of Al'Afaz raid zone.
 
For T7, there are a number of fairly easy to get treasured and legendary bows that drop off trivial encounters.

T7 non raiding dropped Splitscar bow in HoF

T7 quested Grizzfazzle quest starts in Bonemire and Ghostly Bow in SoS  think claymore line or one of the other million side quests to do in there  (SoS questing /shudders)

T7 raid dropped there are a few I have Wurm Destroyer (dropped in Labs) right now.  And I have more dkp then the other ranger and I'm saving them for DT drops or Oblivion's Edge cause I like Katanas (rotten bard had more points then me last time it dropped /grumble)

T6 had imbued Ironwood

T5 had Imbued Cedar

T4 Sureshot quest bow stated above

now things get fuzzy....

I know I used Stormfire quested in Stormhold (before they changed the quest 4 days camping names FTL)

I know I had an imbued Bone Longbow and I know I used Gregor's never used the bow the guy gave me for progressing from a pred to a ranger tho it sucked.

Not sure when exactly i switched between gregor's/bone/stormfire but i know i was using the Sureshot from about lvl 33/35 ish until i got my imbued Cedar.

As previously mentioned, T5 bow of choice is the fabled Valian. Seen that drop off the prismatic drakota in Firemyst Gully. Otherwise it's imbued cedar. I was also lucky enough to get a T4 fabled bow, Longbow of the Warmaster, from Zek. I carried that little baby around with me for a long time, and it served me well.

The only other good one was Stormfire for your early 30's. God that thing was a PITA to get. I lurked round Stormhold for what seemed like an eternity, long after everyone else in my guild had thrown in the towel...

Thank you Prandtl!  I wanted to answer this, but couldn't remember it.  The WWBS (back then, not sure if it's been nerfed) was awesome.

Stormfire was the first bow I paid any attention to. I seriously loved that bow and probably used for longer than I should. My only wish was that SOE would have made that item placable so that I could put it in the house and look at it from time to time SMILEY

It was from fabled craftable drops in T5, I'm not sure if they still drop but I believe I got mine in the daily Antonica instance.

The yew bow was a combination of a Severed Cedar, Yew Glaze, and the rest of the parts to make a cedar bow.
The recipes(Secrets of the Woodworker Volume 40) were raid only droped as well as the Yew Glaze. 
That bow kicked butt in T5 my ranja loved it :smileyhappy:
 
Its a shame they removed all the "Secrets" reicpes.. i sure hope they removed the items from the mobs loot tables as well, really sucks when you kill a raid mob and get a crap loot that noone can use, in any way, shape or form.. :smileysad:
