    Whether artifact or regular (craftable ?), what is currently the fastest archery weapon available in the game (damage done is irrelevant) ?

    Also, is Hit Chance Increase capped ? If yes, what is the maximum HCI that one can achieve for a weapon ?

    This is for the purpose of archery skill training.

    I assume that hitting more in the same given time and with accuracy checks the skill more often and thus allows for faster skill gains.

    Is there any other modifier which should be improved for best training efforts ? Dexterity needs to be maxed out at 125 ?

    Thanks.

    Stamina is the decisive value you should be looking for (if you can try to reach 180). The repeating crossbow is the fastest Archery weapon without mods, but a magic shortbow with SSI and enough stamina brings you down to one shot every 1.25 seconds too (since rows are easier to obtain than bolts).

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks.

    Question, if the max dexterity possible is 150, why stamina should be 180 ?

    Wouldn't 150 be as much as one can use ?

    As for weapons, if the repeating crossbow is the fastest Archery weapon without mods I would imagine that a repeating crossbow WITH Swing Speed Increase, Hit Chance Increase and, perhaps, also Hit Lower Defense mods, would be quite faster than a magic shortbow with SSI allowing for faster gains ?

    Now with imbuing it should not be that hard to put SSI HCI and HLD on a repeating crossbow (3 mods out of 5), or am I wrong ?

    In addition to 150 dex, you can also wear stamina increasing items. Although you cannot raise dex above 150 (adjusted), you can bring stamina to 180.

    because the ssi is determined by stamina not dex ! stamina is determined by how much dex you have ! stamina is not hard capped ! its only limited by the Stamina increase items in game!
    ssi is increased by every 30 pts in stamina
    so 180 is equal to 6 ticks where as 150 is 5 ticks
    here is a link you may find usefull
