    Thanks for any who reply I have given myself a head ache trying to decide what is best and I know these are not the greatest bows if you have a suggestion on what to buy I would love to here it but please don’t tell me to go buy a heavy with 40ssi and 50 in all leaches with 50 DI Im rather poor at the moment although Im working on getting some fletching kits so who knows

  2. Of the choices there, I'd say either 4 or 7.

    What would be ideal for you is a heavy crossbow with mana leech, 30 or more SSI and some damage increase, and if you can find one that has hit lower defense on it too, that's a plus. You don't need all of the leeches, and are actually better off with one that just has mana leech.

    Thanks conner that was kinda what I was thinking what I did was went to search uo and found one with 35 mana leech 30 ssi 37 DI and 9physical resist and paid 50k for it ,could not find one with Hld on it with a good ssi
    I took it out and its going to take me a while to get used to the slow speed but I am kind of curious Do you ever use the dismount ability? or the moving shot the moving shot is ok as specials go but I really dont seem to use it much either. this was one of the drawbacks for me and using the heavy any suggestions for a play style that would go well with this bow ? even at 30 ssi it seems to take fooorrreeevvver to fire lol
