The bow of Faerdhinen (c) is a corrupted version of the Bow of Faerdhinen that does not degrade, with its appearance altered to resemble the corrupted crystal seen within The Corrupted Gauntlet. The bow's appearance can be changed by using crystals purchased from Lliann's Wares; the crystal of Hefin gives the bow the default corrupted appearance, while the crystal of Meilyr gives it the original, uncorrupted appearance.

The bow can be upgraded by bringing it and 2,000 crystal shards to a singing bowl. Doing so requires level 82 Smithing and Crafting (the levels can be boosted), and grants no experience. If the player does not meet the Smithing and Crafting requirements, they can have Conwenna or Reese sing the crystal for them for an extra 1,000 crystal shards. Excess charges in the bow will be taken into account; for example, a newly created bow with 10,000 charges will require 1,900 crystal shards to corrupt and a fully charged bow will only cost 1,800 crystal shards to upgrade. Upon creating the corrupted bow, the chatbox message states "With the help of the crystal bowl, you sing a dark song which corrupts the crystals."

While untradeable, the bow can be uncharged, but the crystal shards used to upgrade it will not be returned.

Like its regular variant, the bow requires level 80 Ranged and 70 Agility to wield, and provides the highest Ranged Attack and Ranged Strength bonus out of any weapon for its attack speed. It also benefits from damage and accuracy boosts when crystal armour is equipped. Each crystal armour piece equipped grants additional bonus accuracy and damage, adding up to a total 15% damage and 30% accuracy bonus when the full set is equipped.

When using crystal armour, the bow provides similar damage per second to the twisted bow and toxic blowpipe; However, these weapons excel against targets with high Magic level and low Defence respectively. Unlike the twisted bow or toxic blowpipe, the bow of Faerdhinen suffers no significant drawback and provides consistent performance due to its high accuracy and damage per shot, along with moderate attack speed and long range.
