Craft Heavy Crossbow with Max SSI

Discussion in 'UO Warrior' started by SweetbabyPacific, Dec 28, 2007.

  1. How would I craft a Heavy Crossbow with Max SSI. my Fletching is at 100.
    Or what should I hunt for Heavy Crossbows.
     
  2. Use Ash wood & an Ash or higher Runic. This will give you a small chance of crafting a 40 SSI bow. As far as what to hunt for the best chances of a 30 SSI heavy, Peerless and Dark Fathers have the best loot packs.

    Seperate question on the same topic.

    Could I craft a Heavy Xbow with max ssi and 30+ in all 3 leaches?

    I know about kits but just wondering if it's possible before I start burning kits?
     
  4. go on test and burn 15 charges of a heartwood kit and see what the results are and see if your happy

    It's possible, but the odds against it are overwhelming. You'd have better odds of hitting the next lotto.

    LOL thanks for the encouragement!

    I have a MSB with the 3 leaches. It doesn't have ssi but it hits fast enough for me PVM. After reading about your HXB I was wondering about making one. Maybe I'll get lucky and find one in monster loot. [​IMG]
     
  7. I got lucky in Heartwood and got a Demon slayer MS with all 3 leeches, but my heavy is so much better that I've stopped using the short.
     
  8. If 40 SSI is what you are looking for, you will need the top end Heartwood Fletcher's Kit for the 100% property intensity (30 SSI) + Ash wood's material property of 10 SSI.

    Tests with the second tier Yew Fletcher's Kit (max 88% property intensity = 25 SSI {rounded down from 26.4 SSI} ) + Ash wood's material property of 10 SSI shows that it's not possible to reach the holy grail of 40 SSI .

    The much cheaper way is loot heavy crossbows with 30 SSI and enhance them with ash wood material and a normal fletcher's kit to get 40 SSI .

    Another point is 35 SSI and 40 SSI may not play much difference at some stamina levels. Yew Fletcher's Kits (25 charges) cost 4 to 5 times less gold in the market than Heartwood Fletcher's kits (15 charges).
     
  9. Ah, there's some info I didn't know. Thanks LAH. [​IMG]

    Learnt it the hard way. I was trying to craft Demon Slayer, 30+ SSI &amp; 40DI cross bow. After spending 7 yaw and 20 ash runic... nada.. No demon slayer. I got undead slayer with 10 SSI (sucks..) &amp; 40DI though.. 20m down the drain..

    I loot or buy heavies then have them enhanced. I have a 30 ssi, 30 di demon slayer heavy and it's been known to two hit kill deamons.
