"Extra" material for making HLB/Arbalest at G15S3...
I'm pretty sure most of you know this already, but just throwing it out there for the people who don't.
HLB CAN be made with Carpentry at G15S3, but there's a catch.
1) Player must be Merchant Destiny (Well, not too big of a problem here)
2) Following Material is needed:
Finest Leather x1 (LOL)
Large Nail x10 (wack some snowmans)
Finest Firewood x10 (Chop chop chop)
Shiny Tough String x5 (Haha, that's eas... WHAT THE HELL?!)
So what the eff is this "Shiny Tough String" needed to make HLB like crazy?
Quite unfortunately for some of the lower leveled players, this material is ONLY obtainable from "Advanced Hardmode" Dungeons. Players of Mabiabout reported that this material was most common in the Rundal Advanced Hardmode dungeon, but also obtainable from Alby Advanced Hardmode, and Ciar Advanced Hardmode.
Fortunately, however, the success rate of making the bow seems to be on the high side, as the player from the source reported 90%+ success rates for making this bow.
Discuss. Will you hunt for this item? It's not like you can spam the dungeon that easily, so I would expect the price to be a bit high...
If you're wondering about the Arbalest requirements, I'll post it up on request.
Mods, if this thread is in the wrong place, I would greatly appreciate it if you can move it.
Too bad HLBs aren't a "flashy" thing anymore.
But if the stats are decent, I definitely see people farming for them.
Not to mention, the people actually making the bows will probably be high leveled anyway, so they shouldn't hit any snags in doing so. Rundal Adv HM is alright, it's just those damn rats you have to look out for.
Well... for one thing, Carpentry HLBs are at the disadvantage that unless you're lucky, the pre-enchanted Glorious or Spike gacha HLBs will have the same or higher stats.
However, if you're really lucky you can possibly craft godly HLBs with 2 max and 2 dura over the gacha ones. I'm not sure if it will be worth the effort for that much stat gain and a low chance, but having one of those godly bows will surely be nice. As for the arbalests... well, I'm sure a few PVP oriented humans I know will put them to good use.
I'm more interested in druid set anyway +_+ those are so sexy.
Edit: That 90% figure is with carpentry success toolkits I believe... so you can expect NA's to be a tad bit lower as we do not have NX toolkits. It's also harder to get full r1 carp parties as it is over there.

Yeah... Now that you say it, that 90% seemed too high ._.;

Now to get them Shiny Tough Strings ._.;
Going to go and cry now over Shiny Tough String.
Shiny tough threads shouldn't be too hard...
I'd love to spam Rundal Adv. HM dungeons since they give other rare stuffs as well.
Seeing as to how those are probably stacking, expect them to be duped en masse the moment a new stack dupe comes out.
Or gachapon, seeing how Ice Silks and Ice Fabrics were not immune to them.
