You cannot equip this bow until a bowyer modifies it?

    I have a Bow of Daemon Dismissal that I imbued to a -25 Mage Weapon, however none of my characters can equip it, not even my archer. I keep receiving the message:

    "You cannot equip this bow until a bowyer modifies it"

    What does this mean?

    Click the bow with someone with fletching skill and target some gears.

    Why was this step necessary?

    Its a bow from a juka lord, they come as standard and when you use gears on them it adds a slayer property to it [the new ones do, the old ones dont but still need it doing, and the very old ones that had a slayer property it would add a second slayer (where double slayer "black" bows are from)]

    There really nifty as you can go get one off a juka lord, imbue what you want on it then use the geers and it will add a second slayer when you have used geers on it. I have a sick one for doom with:

    HML
    HSL
    SSI
    DI
    Demon slayer
    Elemental slayer

    Plus enhanced with ash for 40% SSI

    Plus lots with :
    HML
    HSL
    HLA
    SSI [40% from enhance aswell]
    DI
    Slayer [from the gears]

    6 properties and its imbue weight is over 600 ;)

    OMG!! I didn't see the second slayer (Orc Slayer) after using the gears.

    Thanks!
     
  6. Also know that you need 80+ Dex and 80+ Str (both unmodified numbers) to equip any Juka bow. I don't remember what if any mess you get when you try to equip the bow without the needed stats.

    Juka bows are still great. When you find a nice slayer. Use PoF on them and then imbue them with things you like. :)

    I have to agree that juka bows are great.
    Once you have accumulated enough wealth, you can start to play lotto with them:
    - take an unmodified juka bow
    - pof
    - imbue
    - modify
    - enhance
    That way you can end up with really insane slayer/double slayer bows. (Only risks are to get a) a crappy slayer b) to break an already good bow on enhancing).
