Verant's/SOE's logic?
# Jun 27 2003 at 5:19 PM Rating: Default
I am forever reading about Verant's/SOE's logic. How can anyone presume to know the logic they use?

Can you please put a link to show my where they have once, just once explained their reasoning behind anything?

All I ever see is someone saying they know a friend of a friend of a friend that works/worked for SOE/Verant and this is what they said.

Hearsay in and of itself is usually at best inaccurate and at worst made up.

If you can show me a post from a true source Please help me out here. Until then deal with the facts and only the facts please.

It will be the most help to all!

Thanks,

Just got this bow last night. So far I like it, I carry 3 bows now, this raincaller and a light velium bow. Would like to get one of the nice bows from luclin eventually, but these 3 will serve me fine until then.

It is a very close range AoE, they have to be practically standing on top of each other for it to hit more then one mob.

This spell will hurt you if you cast it normally. That is why the effect of having to shoot at the target is good you can never hurt yourself. NO it WILL NOT hurt other players for being to close but will hurt YOU the caster if you are too close. That is why the bow's Range factor makes using this effect better than regular casting.

This bow is mainly just a good stat bow for hybrids (wis and mana stats). I just got it tonight and most people of level to fight this dragon will have one of the velium bows, which have a better ratio.

I'll use this bow for stats and pulling. For trueshot I'll use my double recurved velium bow.

lighting strike is a AE dd it has good damage too.

IT CANNOT HIT YOU !!! an ae proc on a bow cannot hit you because if the enemy is close enough that the ae could hit you then you are too close to even use your bow. the only down side to this bow is if the proc goes off near something that isnt argoed you can bet it will be now
its thes a nice bow

Brother, paladins (and even vile shadowknights) do not need to worry about getting a good bow. Our skill in archery tops at 75.

The only reason to carry a bow is if you want to pull without using mana.

So, if you must have a bow, concentrate on getting a bow with a looooong range. Delay/damage is irrelevant since you are only trying to get one shot in, and at 75 skill, 95% will be misses anyway (or hits for very little damage).

The stats on this bow (and a lot of others that have appeared after PoP) are nice, but there are much better range items for the knight that are easier to get.

Let a ranger grab this bow first if it drops. Unless there are no rangers around, and Woushi's corpse is about to rot, then go ahead and loot it. I guarantee you it will be in your bag (or bank) for 99% of the time.

The Porc could not kill you, first off its a DD and unless your on A PvP sever it cant even hit you. Secondly for it to even hit another mob besides the target the others have to be virtually stacked on top of it. plain and simple your dumb
#Anonymous, Posted: Apr 29 2001 at 11:24 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) That AE proc could kill you. stupid proc for a good bow.
WOW!

Really, if you follow Verant's logic, warriors should have access to almost all weapons that aren't class-specific. Warriors are supposed to be the masters of warcraft, that's why they have access to all classes of weapons. As a balancing factor, to offset their status as masters of warcraft, warriors get no spells and no saving skills, like FD or mend or sneak. Verant has even said from time to time that warriors are the masters of all types of weapons. It seems odd that any weapon that isn't class-specific wouldn't be useable by warriors, but then lots of things Verant does are inconsistent with things they say from time to time.

Going along with your logic, maybe this bow can only be weilded by those with magical abilities or what have you. I'm not saying this is what they had intended, not that EVERYTHING Verant does must be logical 100% of the time. Maybe lay off them a bit? Heh no matter, I'm not going to change any minds.

Random proc. It's a small range AE that does 184 dmg. Outdoor only. Procs maybe 1 in 20 arrows for me with 214 dex.
About that proc...

I just thought I would point out the fact that Lightning Strike is the level 34 druid AOE DD spell. It does 184 maximum damage, and will hit up to four targets at once if they're all very close to the actual target of the spell.

Just think, if this thing would actually proc often enough... rangers could quad-kite with a bow! :)
