There are a wide variety of woods found in Elanthia - some mundane, some not. Wood-types like hemlock, pine, etc., are classified as mundane in this instance (see link below for more information on common trees.) Many types of wood are well-suited as ranged weapons, shields, runestaves, or quarterstaves - however, the non-magical woods on the list below are the only ones of that type that can be used as bows.
