    I was curious how to obtain the named bows like "Bow of earth shatter," "bow of summer wind," "bow of snake's bane," etc.

    I thought these were bows looted from Juka lords and then have a GM bowyer double click them and target a gear which then adds (or lets the holder view) the slayer type. When I did "enhance" some of these bows, they did indeed change color and reveal the slayer type but the name never changed. Is it a rare property that the name changes? Is it only some of the slayer types? If that is the case, I have seen some named bows such as the snake's bane (snake slayer) and flame dousing (fire elemental slayer) and I also have these enhanced slayer types but the name is not reflected. Its not that big a deal, only that I'm a collector of strange and sometimes pointless things.

    As always, thanks for your great insights.

    I don't think the name changes anymore. It changed awhile back.

    These slayer bows were introduced long ago as weapons of virtue and could be found as loot on any monster. Starting with AOS they renamed them to slayer weapons. So yes they are rare today and do no longer spawn.
