Price check on three archery weapons

    The weapons are actually on Europa, but I'd love to know how much would they be worth on other shards. I need the info to compile a sort of "automated pricer" to parse UOA vendors list, so even comments like "bow #1 is better than bow #2" would be helpful, especially if they come with explanations on why.

    These are the weapons:

    1) Composite Bow: 12 DCI, 41DI, 40 hit lightning, 40 HML, 38 HSL, 10 SSI
    2) Heavy Xbow: 47DI, 48 Hit Fireball, 35 SSI
    3) Heavy Xbow: 40DI, FC1, 20 Cold Damage, 30 Poison Damage, 35 HLL, 40 SSI
  2. #1 isn't worth trying to sell. 10 SSI on a crossbow still has it firing too slow. If you were determined, then maybe 20-25k, and then only a newer player would give it a try.

    #2 maybe 75-100k. It would make a halfway decent Swoop bow, but that's about it. 35 SSI would be overlooked for a 40 that didn't cost much more.

    #3 could probably get 200-250k for it, but again, not good for much more than Swoop.

    One thing to keep in mind for crossbows and heavy crosssbows is that for PVM it must have mana leech and 30-40 SSI. Archers use heavy's with high SSI and mana leech as a way to regen the small mana pool they blow through. PvP'rs are looking for hit spell effects, along with HLD or HLA. Single mod bows (other than SSI) really don't sell very well unless the player is specifically looking to use it for Swoop hunting. The first bow would be an awesome one if it had the SSI to match the rest.

    Thank you for the input - the first one is a composite, though (still not very fast, but it's 2.25 sec with 134 stamina)...
