    nice bow, what would be the best template for that bow you think?

    I have always had a hard time figuring out a spell channeling bow with fc-1...seems like you are going to gimp your mage by carrying it...and in order to shoot it you would have to run with archery also...just curious.

    Eh, the sc-1 isn't wanted on this bow. Balance / FC 1 / 40 SSI preferrably.

    But what temp? Arch, Tact, Hide, Stealth, Ninja, Medi, Detect/Heal or Stealth Archer Tamer..

    Not to sound snobbish, but yes, I know the -FC1 wasn't a desirable. I was just trying to figure out what template would tolerate it. I suppose a stealth tamer that had magery on could take advantage of it. But without magery the spell channeling is worthless, with magery, the -FC1 would suck...unless magery was just a convenience and not core to the template.

    Yes, obviously Balanced, FC1 and 40SSI would make it a MUCH better bow :)

    SSI isn't realy needed if you know how to play a good dismounter. Your job is to dismount for your guildies and to not die to do it again.... Its not to dismount someone 1v1 and chase them with a 40 swing speed bow that still swing as slow as an OX

    Exactly, As a dismounter you're not going to stand out and wait for a second shot. HLD isn't even that desired on the bow, just massive HCI, spell, etc. IMO the perfect heavy would be:

    Balanced
    50% Velocity
    50% lightning
    25HCI
    50DI

    I like a team win. I win by myself often, but a team win is shared. I just is a different sort of rewarding.

    I agree, that would be the perfect heavy but heres another point no one esle has made yet Speedy. That there is still some value to.

    If HLD goes off on the dismount it allows other dexxers/archers to hit easier instantly after the dismount which benefits the group. Which is the point of a dismounter. However it is not needed.
