Excellent bow

Its ratio is far better than any of the bows I can make with a fletching skill of 56. I could score a few Critical Hits of 44 damage when paired with Class 2 Wood Arrows with 150 range.

I picked one up on Quellious for 50pp. Seems pretty good, though I haven't used it yet.
haste and bows

A quiver (wether tailored quiver or fleeting) will effect your speed on your bow firing.

To figure out the bow haste. Take the Weight Reduction and divide by 2 and you get the haste percent. So a haste on a fleeting quiver is 30%. As it is 60% WR.

Actually, the common consensus is that the haste is 1/3 of WR, not 1/2.

Picked one up at the bazaar for 200pp. A Trueshot was also 200pp. This bow is faster, lighter, and more compact than the trueshot. Can't wait to start firing away.

I just got a swiftclaw sash (haste). It seems as though my range attack is also hastened. Anyone know if this is true, or just my imagination?

I bought this bow in the Bazaar for 400pp on Bertox. I may not have got as good a deal as this guy above, but it is still worth it to me. The graphic looks very sweet when held. A light brown color (I'm bad describing wood textures! Ummm, maple? Birch? Elm? Very light brown closer to white maybe) with awesome looking curves and a dark brown handle. I am now selling the Trueshot for 100pp, which has that basic boring 'hunting bow' graphic when wielded. I would say this bow looks more like the Trueshot graphic in the corner of the Trueshot stat box. Kinda like what players would expect when weilding the TS, which dissapointed me when I first got it since it looks nothing like it's little pic in the stat box.

Why do you think this bow sucks?
# Sep 11 2002 at 1:17 PM Rating: Good
This is a very nice bow, IMO. It has better ratio and lower delay than the shadewood compound bow, which is the best *non-cultural* player made bow in the game, AFAIK. The shadewood compounds sells for 1k+ on Sol Ro. The low delay on the Shissar is nice for getting skill increases, but it still does a respectable 20dmg (more with high dmg arrows of course) I suppose if you're hunting in SSra, you are probably level 55+ and already have a wrapped velium bow or blessed faydark thunderbolt, and this may seem like a crappy item. But for those of us still working our way up in level and gear, this is a fine weapon to equip in range. Smiley: smile

I just have to ask what AFAIK means? At first I thought it was "As Far As Im Concerned" but thats AFAIC.

AFAIK = As Far As I Know :P

Well, East Commonlands is the place on MT, Think about it for a moment. Velious, Kunark and Freeport and Neriak are all close by. *or in the case of Kunark and Velious, the dock is close*. Its just the way people do it on MT. =P

corrupted bow

I'm a 35 pally, and some nice high level player gave me one of these for free in the netherbian lair. Needless to say , I was very happy. Now I'd like to know more about the corrupted bow? is that a quest, does it have better stats? could a high elf pally use it?

Combine one of these with a Green metal from the skellies in the Ssra basement in a shissar forge to get the Corrupted Shissar Bow, which is the only type of bow that will hurt the Emporer.

It's needed to get the corrupted shissar bow which can actually damage the emp (shissar bane dmg).

i don't understand why everyone else has their market in either EC or Gfay? on Mith marr it's in north freeport, why? because it is accessable to everyone, the sewers are good for the evil, the bank is there, there is food, you can duel in the sewers to try out your new stuff, you can kill guards if you really want, and to answer your question on how to get past the guards to get to the bank, simple, a monk usually pulls the banker to the sewer or, you just get wolf form. please, tell me why you choose EC or Gfay
