This crossbow worth much? (repost)

Discussion in 'UO Siege Perilous' started by Sweeney, Apr 9, 2009.

    Heavy Crossbow
    SC
    FC-1
    Hit Magic Arrow 40%
    Luck 96
    SSI 25%
    DI 41%

    Unenhanced

    Basically I'm wondering what such a bow would be worth:
    a) If imbuing has no chance to destroy the item (guaranteed adding balance)
    b) If imbuing does have a chance to destroy the item.
    c) Regular enhancement only.

    I'm not an archer most of the time, and I am in need of gold. I am willing to sell this if the price is right. If I don't like the offers I'll hold out for imbuing.

    Actually I just noticed this weapon already has 6 mods.. can it even be imbued (futuristic question)? I know it can still be enhanced.

    Or maybe it's 5 mods considering SC comes with a FC -1 by default.. I have no idea.

    I hate to tell you, but that bow is a piece of ****. For heavy x-bows peeps seem to want hci and balance, than everything else is gravy.
    You arent going to get much gold for anything that might be good down the road.

    I'll just wait for SA then, heh. In my mind it's a decent bow as it.. with balance it would be the nuts.

    ideal pvp heavy

    balanced
    hci
    di
    ssi - 35+
    lightning - 40+
    hld - 40+

    if you'd enhance with ash and get it to 35 it would be a decent throwaway.

    I have to agree, if your waiting till SA, everyone will be making bows that are out of this world so that bow will still be crap.

    Heavys dont need SC
    magic arrow is a weak hit spell
    you certainly dont need luck, heavies are NEVER a pvm bow
    DI and SSI arnt bad though

    If your looking for a moderate level heavy, I believe the invasion monsters dropped stuff with like DI,SSI, and hit spell

    THIS.

    FC-1 doesn't count as a mod, it's a detriment. If it was SCNP that that counts as two because

    1) SC -1 = 1 mod
    2) FC 1 = 1 mod

    the -1 and FC1 cancel thus giving you the SCNP

    This is pretty informative posting coming from somebody who PKed my miner and cut up my suit. You disgust me. The Legion of Dark Rappers does not forgive, we do not forget. No one is safe.

    It will take time (a lot) and resources (a ton) to get to that point, and it will *still* cost you a nut and a leg (plus yer stash) for something uber :)

    To my knowledge (which admittedly is limited) there are *maybe* 5 dedicated crafters on this shard fully working towards that goal currently, preparing skills and storing items and whatnot, and the expansion hasn't released yet :wall:

    However, that bow is still crap :next:

    Don't listen to these people sweeney. That bow is good enough to drop hera so I'd hold on to it in case he tries to cut up your LRC suit when you are mining.

    Keep it for imbuing, It has 4 high intensity mods, which means it will make a high end ingredient. I tossed my cuz about 100 items I got that are all in the 45-50s intensity of 5 properties because once imbuing comes about, it will make some nasty ingreds. But the bow isn't too great, good throw away
