Final Fantasy Brave Exvius[edit | edit source]

A bow decorated with ancient engravings that hold mystical power. The carvings upon it are said to have been made by a civilization that lived long ago, and are believed to be what makes this weapon more powerful than the average bow. Its string never snaps or loses its tension either, making it a valuable weapon that others hope to imitate in order to make a profit. Fortunately, a forgery can be easily spotted by simply testing the limits of the bow's string.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

Runes are the letters in a set of related alphabets known as runic alphabets, which were used to write various Germanic languages before the adoption of the Latin alphabet and for specialized purposes thereafter. Historic anthropology regarding the Germanic and Norse peoples that used runes also note that the language was also highly used in magical practices related to these cultures, whether it be in divination, enchantment, and incantation.
