- Talk to Perih Vashai in Windurst Woods as a level 71+ Ranger with 250+ Archery skill to obtain the Bow of Trials and a Weapon Training Guide.
- Use the Bow of Trials until the latent effect disappears.
- How to remove the latent effect:
- You must perform Archery Weapon Skills and Skillchains using the Bow of Trials on monsters that check as Incredibly Easy Prey or higher.
- Weapon Skills performed with a main handed weapon, such as Axes or Daggers, will not count.
- Weapon Skills performed while under Level Sync will count.
- You receive 1 point for successfully hitting with any Weapon Skill. You receive 1 additional point for closing a Lv.1 Skillchain, 2 additional points for closing a Lv.2 Skillchain, and 4 additional points for closing a Lv.3 Skillchain. No points are earned if your Weapon Skill misses.
- You must accumulate 300 total points.
- To see if you are done, check your equipment screen. If you still see the status enhancments given to you by the bow, you need to continue skillchaining. (The text on the Bow of Trials does not change, only your physical stats.)
- Once you no longer receive the latent effect bonus, head back to Windurst Woods and trade the Bow of Trials back to Perih Vashai to obtain a Map to the Annals of Truth.
- Head to (G-7) in Cape Teriggan and click the ??? to spawn the NM bird Stolas.
- Once Stolas is dead, reexamine the ??? to obtain the Annals of Truth.
- Bring this back to Perih Vashai for your reward.
- Perih Vashai (Vashai's residence, Windurst Woods)
- You are to undertake training to still the doubt within you. Use the bow you have been given until it no longer responds to your inner turmoil.
