    Just a thought, though composite longbows might not be the *best weap* per se, do we know the effects of force arrow?

    "Force Arrow is an Archery Special Move was added during the Mondain's Legacy expansion in the fall of 2005.
    Archers focuses their will into an arrow of pure force, dazing their enemy. Dazed enemies are temporarily easier to hit, and sometimes forget who they are attacking."
    and
    "Force Arrow also has the effect of making the target fall into Peace Mode. It occurs roughly 40% of the time in PvE."

    Im presuming this like HLD + a mild "peacing" effect?

    If it acts like a special to reduce a monsters defence chance, could we remove HLD as a mod from a weap. Reason being the special only costs 15 mana, 10 mana for those templates with Arch/Bushido and then 6 mana for those with 40% LMC.

    A bow with velocity/hit lightning/HML/SSI/DI would allow a decent damage output, with a peaced foe meaning HSL/HLA would not be required...and a very safe fight would be had by all...

    I'm thinking for champs mainly (semidar, ratman, rikki, mephist etc)

    Has anyone tried this?

    If not I'm going to.... :p

    just tried on a low intensity HML/HSL/HLD bow i had ready to unravel. Seems a bit crap :p ah well...
    I killed 5 greater dragons, didn't notice a "peacing" effect much at all...

    It lowers DCI of the target by -4 and I think takes them out of war mode.
