    After making a few bows with it, I felt ripped off. As much imbueing weight as it takes, and all for an extra 4-5 damage?!?

    I've got to be missing something here...

    Its 1 dmg per tile, so up to 10 dmg if you standing max range with a comp, or almost any other bow except heavy x bow and repeating. So its basically an extra lightning .

    Well..4-5 damage could mean a kill. Armor ignore + hit spell + velocity could reach up to 45-50 damage.. And swinging at 1.25..that's super fast damage output

    Yes hit fireball can really make you lag/rubber band if your running or using moving shot.

    And you can put it on along WITH Fireball or Lightning so you effectively have 2 hit effects.
