Aman'talah is a replica of a middle Thalassian era spellbow recovered by the Curators of Thalassian Culture while led by Entilzha Firesong. The weapon had an odd upper rune which seemed to generate an amber effect, though further testing revealed if used by one infused with the light, the design fired arrows of holy fire.

With the advent of Mage-Priests and few lightwielders also using a spellbow, while one precise replica was made, three more commissioned by House Firesong replaced the Light rune with a standard flame rune.

Two smaller augment runes to the primary conjuration rune allow the wielder to shoot 1-3 arrows, on fire if desired.

Calindra Lemoine was gifted one of three spellbows upon her promotion to Ranger-Lieutenant of the Thera'dora by Lord Firesong. Of these, one was a modern design, another a different ancient variant. Calindra said Aman'talah "felt right" in her hands, and though Shal'dorei, named the weapon according to Thalassian custom, while striking down those harassing the weak on rooftop patrol in occupied Suramar City.

The original bow upon which Aman'talah was based dates, based on sediment levels and residual arcane dating, to approximately 4,000 Y.S. on the Thalassian Calendar, the time of the troll wars. Due to the sophistication of the weapon, with three primary and two augment runes, its thought to have been crafted later in the war as Thalassian bows grew more elaborate and powerful. That original is housed at the Sun's Lineage Gallery on the Isle of Quel'Danas.

Calindra, with financing from Houses Devaux and Firesong, and expertise in spellbow design from Quel'Thalas, is designing a series of bows based on the design of Aman'talah, as the Thera-dora take on the role of a ranger force for Suramar, much of the training and execution handled by Calindra. As with Aman'talah and the other two variants created, each new bow is different, with runes and a design suited to the Ranger.

Few of the weapons reach the level of master craftsmanship displayed in Aman'talah and its origin piece, with Calindra opting to focus more on function over style for the general Thera-dora bows. Two dozen spellbows in production are being designed from both Aman'talah and the base model on Quel'danas, and are likely to be assigned to officers, or particularly skilled archers among the Thera-dora.
