What mods on an X bow do you think are the best for

    A killer Concussion blow?

    1. Damage increase
    2. Lightning
    3. Velocity or Area damage

    I think having 120 tac and 120 anat and 100 DI in equipment will all help.

    What is your opinion,

    ty

    I like to see SSI ,DI, slayer is also cool I have several bows with lightning which makes for a good all around bow
    Im not a big fan of damage area unless i am fighting a lot of week mobs as it tends to draw a lot of aggro

    hci - increase chance to hit
    ssi - shooting once every 2 seconds beats shooting every 4 seconds
    di - more damage
    hit lightning - more damage
    hit velocity - more damage

    hla and hld not needed since they trigger after the blow

    Also is there still an extra damage bug with the quiver of rage? If so use that too.
     
  4. HLD is very much needed as it decreases your chance to miss on the next shot by 25%. These 4 I see as the tops for overall usefulness and damage:

    DI
    SSI
    HLD
    ML

    I say mana leech because without mana, you can't cast Chiv or Bushido spells which both increase damage. Hit Spell is only good when you're using a non-slayer weapon, as the slayer property is nullified when the Hit Spell goes off, and really, with Archers and the lack of mana we have, it's better in the long run for ML to go off than a hit spell of any type (PvM only of course).
     
  5. What does Velocity do anyway?

    [/ QUOTE ]It's the opposite of Harm.

    Harm does more damage the closer you are to your target. Velocity does more damage the further away.

    It's in a sticky at the top of the forums.
