Build Merits The Soaring Dragon is by far the only endgame bow that is straight up Spread with its charge shots. The Bow Charge Plus unleashes its level 4 charge shot that contains five arrows! Too bad that we can only exploit this bow with Water Element. That's why you have to maximize it with Stream Jewels and with the Azure Age Obi. Still it's a great spread bow for those looking for a spread-type bow build, most especially if you exploit its capability to use Power Coatings.
