    Hi, returning player on catskills. Trying to get an archer main up and running. My fletcher is still newbish, so I bought a reasonably priced repair contract in luna. It failed and screwed a point of durability.....7 times in a row. Finally the 8th contract I bought repaired the bow. Grandmaster fletcher contracts.

    So I am new, lucky enough to have someone hook me up with a decent bow, but of course its not artifactual and has like 35 durability. Affording powder of fort just returning fresh account/characters not going to happen. Feel kinda screwed, cant even use the bow now it lost so many durability points I will just have to shelve it until I can afford fort powders I reckon.

    Is the repair failure rate supposed to be that damn high? Or did I just get an unlucky streak.?

    Depending on you bow, it might not be worth using powder on it. I cant help you on Cats but for training archery, I usually use a Runed Driftwood Bow nowadays. If you keep your eyes open, those should be available at low costs. (Way lower than powder.)

    Thank you, that is awesome :). I actually picked up one of those runed driftwood bows late last night. Had not noticed it on the vendor earlier and the price was not terrible at all. Bow I have probably is not worth it long term, but it has mana leech which I do need, and its elven short bow and I just happen to like the lightning special move because I enjoy the lightning spell on my screen it makes me happy, and its good for trash mobs because it hits everyone surrounding the target for some reason
