Should I risk it?

    So...I've always wanted a heavy crossbow with really, really high swing speed increase. And, after killing quite a few generals I nabbed one with 50% ssi. I nearly pooped myself.

    If I remember, ash adds swing speed increase. I'd hate, hate, hate to loose the bow I'd been looking so long for. Should I risk enhancing it?

    no way....cause you can't enhance or make SSI that high. IT only spawns.
    No win situation!

    I was under the impression those weps can't be enhanced anyway.

    They can't be enhanced.

    So go ahead and try.

    I've never been able to get a 50 SSI. I'd be willing to trade something for one....if you get another. I've got plenty of the 30 SDI healer and mage books.

    Bob is always asking me what he can give me fore one reason or another as an expression of gratitude....

    If I had an archer assembled I would be so tempted to say a 50 SSI bow!

    not cause I want one...but just to see him cry :)

    They aren't that rare, but some people are luckier than others in the getting of them.

    Myself, I have a bunch of 50% SSI bows and crossbows, but only one 50% SSI heavy.

    And I've been terribly unlucky in finding mage-generals, and only have a single DCI spellbook.

    TimberWolf, as much as I love my new bow, if you asked me for it then I would give it to you.

    And yeah, I really would. :)

    I have dozens of 30 sdi spellbooks. But nothing more than 45 ssi on a bow. I have no idea why. Could it have something to do with the speed you kill em?

    There are a handful of "secret" items that I have, that I know some people would love to trade me something, if they knew I held them. I am not ready to part with my treasures. heh. Forgive me though, my new X-bow is not something that I would ever trade, or even sell.

    However...there are a select number of players in the world of Sosaria that I would freely give an item to for free if ever asked.

    TimberWolf puts on a shell of being a...well, I'm not going to repeat what he once called himself. But as much as he would like you to think otherwise, he is a wonderful guy.
