    I think it's very important, 'cause I cannot endure tiresome of unequip-equip weapons to drink potions.
    But if considering generally, how think do you to imbuing "Balanced" property in weapon?
    I wish to know your idea. Please response me. Thank you.

    Never. For me a waste of points because with enhanced client you equip a 1h weapon + drink + reequip in no time with a macro

    If you using bows I suggest you to get a crossbow with 'balances' property and a ring with 50 EP. You will use them in macro for drinking potions.
    Balanced crossbow is better than 1h weapon becouse you don't lose defence (still have 120 combat skill). And you can as well equip this crossbow in situations when don't want to shoot.

    There is another option:
    I belive you have a set of slayers weapons (same mods but different slayers).
    You can get a bow with the same mods but with balanced instead of slayer. You will use this bow: 1) when you need to drink a potion 2) when you haven't slayer for a monster you fight.

    Sometimes you don't want autoattack mobs so you just equip crossbow (assuming you have no bolts).

    p.s. For example, when you are going to honor them later.
