Need Bow Imbue Advice

Discussion in 'UO Warrior' started by Norther, Nov 15, 2009.

    For PvP bow

    I have A Magical Shortbow with:

    Hit Lightning 50%
    Lower Defense 28%
    Damage Increase 44%
    Physical Resist 11%

    Was wondering If I should add HCI,SSI or something else I have enough room to put HCI 14% SSI 20% not sure what happens if I lower the Physical resist to 1%

    Or Should I just work on Maxing Damage Increase and the Hit Lower defense
    Drop the Physical resist to 1 and Put whatever I have Left into HCI

    Any advice will help thx In advance

    You need SSI for sure. 30 is best choise. When you lower Phys resist - you'll get more points to imbue required properties.

    dump that bow, start fresh..
    use mace and shields for the HLD.

    dont make magic shorts, they are weak.
    make composite bow..
    make 3 or 4 with 25 SSI and enhance for 35, or RISK 15 or so 30 ssi and enhance for 40.. :)

    put these on it.
    40 hit light
    44 velocity
    25 ssi, enhance to 35. gotta make a few of them :( sigh.. or live with 30 ssi.. with 30 ssi you gotta drop di to 1%

    5 DI.. its all you can fit with 25 ssi :(

    i think these are the numbers, this is from memory.. sorry.. but this is the IDEAL pvp bow.

    For PvP, composition bows are very popular thanks to their armor ignore and moving shot specials. When you imbue your PvP comp bow, you'll want either:

    40 di
    40 hl or velocity
    35 ssi

    or a double hit spell bow, as mentioned above.

    Keep your magic shortbow for PvM. The lightning arrow is nice for champs. Imbuing some ssi to it wouldn't hurt.
