Advice on a Bow

Post by {ƒαtα£}Shärkßäît on Tue Dec 02, 2014 6:47 am

I am considering respeccing to Ranger. What metal should be the first bow I work on getting? I know fire would be great for hunting, but it is a bit out of my price range at the moment (and probably will remain so).What would the best bow metal be for hunting? What would be the best bow metal for pvp/warring?

in my opinion a good inexpensive metal for hunting is poison.

IMO, a poison longbow is best if you cannot use fire. Level it up completely and watch it do it's magic.

Honed and Ice would be good for a bow too. Don't bother with shade or banish, banish does nothing to monsters and few of them heal themselves, making shade irrelevant.

Ice is essential if you wanna keep the monster outta your range. Then swap to poison and after the venom is applied, swap to honed or engage in melee.

Retribution is also rather useless metal for ranged combat, as the monster rarely gets a chance to "retaliate". Same goes to lightning as it's rather hard to apply it to multiple enemies while running around. Those two are melee metals fo sho.

If you got money then either fire or levitation are great metals.

Rangers can handle melee as well, but good bow can be a great fightstarter (or firestarter ;) )

I love levi in a ranged weapon.
