Reason: Cannith Crafting
Silver, Alchemical: A complex process involving metallurgy and alchemy can bond silver to a weapon made of steel so that it bypasses the damage reduction of creatures such as Devils and certain Undead like Vampires.
Silver weapons have 2 points lower hardness then equivalent steel weapons, and as such aren't quite as durable.
The Silver Longbow does not bypass Silver DR on foes as it's simply a material type for the bow, but what counts for bows usually is the ammunition used. Any bows loaded with silver ammunition do bypass Silver DR. Metalline bows, however, do bypass any metal-based DR, regardless of the ammunition, as metalline is a magical effect that transfers to the ammunition used.
Blessed Silver weapons
Available in in game store and can be crafted using Cannith Crafting.
Blessed Silver weapons are considered Good and overcome the damage reduction of most fey creatures like Dryads or Satyrs AND the damage reduction of most Lycanthropes like Werewolfs along with certain Undead like Vampires.
In the original release of DDO, silver weapons worked more like their pen and paper counterparts and dealt 1 point less damage per swing. This was changed to simplify the game.
