Tips

The diamond bow and below are relatively easy to get, as plenty of deposits for these resources exist. Collect all of the string and hawk feathers you need to make the bow of choice, then go to winter and collect the necessary penguin feathers. Once you are done with this, start collecting the wood/stone/gold/diamond and make the bows.

If you plan to make a lot of gold or diamond arrows, you may want a mammoth hat, as you will need to spend a lot of time in winter.

The amethyst bow is harder to obtain, as there are fewer amethyst deposits (in either the dragon cave or the lava biome, you can get 4 amethyst every 10 seconds, so you will wait a full day to get the necessary 200). The vulture feathers are also tricky to get, as you need to go to the desert, and the vultures take some time to kill. One solution is to build a large tomato farm in the desert, since you can sell tomatoes for amethyst.

TO get a reidite bow, you need to kill a kraken. Use a diving mask to lure the kraken to an island, then kill it with amethyst arrows. Make sure the kraken stays near the island, unless you are very good at aiming a bow. Again, the getting reidite arrows is more involved, since you need to travel between the desert and lava biome, and there are only a few reidite deposits.

For the dragon bow, do the quest, then make a reidite bow. You will spend significant time in the desert, to get the initial emeralds, and to kill sandworms for the arrows. Because of this, a ninja outfit is recommended. As with the amethyst and reidite bows, it is fairly time consuming to get the arrows, as you will need to kill some sandworms.

Trivia

Of all chrono quest items, the dragon bow has the shortest crafting time, with only 50 seconds. Other dragon gear takes 2 minutes to craft, lava gear takes 3 minutes, and all other chrono quest items take 1 minute. For comparison, most amethyst items take 1 minute to craft.
