I'm looking to get the Shissar Bow to make corrupt version. From what I can gather, it is supposed to drop off 'an elite temple guard' in SSRA. I do not see the bow listed on their loot tables and have downed over 100 of these with no bow drop yet.

Has it been taken out of game, does it drop from another creature/zone?

Thanks for any input.

Having played a ranger since I started playing EQ, I can confirm that the range = bow+arrow, just as the damage - bow+arrow.

Therefore, with my current bow/arrows, I get the following

Bow Damage = 33 Arrow Damage = 11
Total Damage = 44

Bow Range = 250 Arrow Range = 170
Total Range = 420

That is with a Warmaster Recurve Longbow and Blessed Champion Arrows.

Normal crits for max of 974, Trueshot crits for 1980ish.

On the subject of the Shissar Bane weapons, previous comments are correct, using a bow against the Emperor would be worthless, as they usually corner him, not only wall him (if he was merely walled, I could actually hit him with proper positioning), therefore making attempting to hit with a bow next to worthless. You may end up getting a few shots in, but nowhere near what you will be able to do DPS-wise with 1hs or even 2hs weapons, as a ranger.
Just my 2cp worth.

You can now hit the Emperor with a Corrupted Shissar Bow after the recent patches! ( I see Loviotor's post is dated before said patches).

This will really increase Ranger DPS in this encounter and definitely shorten this rather lengthy 'event'.
It will also remove riposte damage taken by rangers that were using melee shissar bane weapons prior to the Dx9 patches (if ya have a shissar bane bow =D ) conserving healers mana.

will non bane arrows hurt emp? or is there a bane arrow I need to get?
# Sep 20 2004 at 5:11 AM Rating: Decent
This post seems rather old, but for those of you who dont know, you od not need a bane arrow to hurt the emp, but the bow is needed. So all you Endless Quivered rangers, go wild =) (with corrupted bow of course)

Emperior is in the wall most of the fight, so
wasting a green metal on a bow is not wise.
In the wall means arrows have no effect.
Better to have the green metal used on
a melee weapon IMHO.

Actually, the green metal is not wasted. This bow is not only useful on Shissar, it is also useful in the rest of the game as well. The stat buffs that get added when you upgrade from the Shissar Bow to the Corrupted Shissar Bow are worth it, even if you never see another Shissar for the rest of your life.

Sorry but your dead wrong here. Look at the stats! If your not using a bow with better stats than this buy the time you can get to the Emperor then you might as well delete your Ranger. Even a Blessed Faydark Thunderbolt has better all around stats and ratio.

bottom line is this folks so listen up. been playing my ranger since beta days...and this has been my only charactor. get a bow, 30+ damage with 38 delay or less with mithril champion arrows or the likes if you have endless quiver...if not summon some or make them and up your fletching...its fun to show off...anyhow..the above mentioned bow for any ranger and your good!

Range is calculated Bow range + arrow range

Damage is calculated Bow bam +str/level bonuses etc, + elemental damage, + bane damage.

Shissar bane weapons are required for Emp kills by top tier guilds.

Yes, dexterity is the primary stat for higher crits and higher over all damage each shot.

I'll save you time from having to look at all these posts that are irrelevant and annoying. Arrow damage is like damage bonus, not extra damage. Arrow range is ADDED to the range of the bow. This is what is true, and ignore the other posts so that you may be less confused. As for this bow, I say that for the difficulty, just buy PoP and get yourself the materials for a nightmare compound bow and hand em to a fletcher.

#dilthanas, Posted: Aug 21 2002 at 2:36 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) therefore blessed tunare arrows from this bow assuming shissar damage sorted and its equippable means 33 35 plus 11 plus 4 fire but the ac in SST is obscene so it dont help

I'm no expert on the performance of bane weapons, owning none myself.

However, I get the impression that a high level ranger with endless quiver, homing-missile arrows, and this getting a crit against a Shissar would have to HURT.

Well you use it against Shissars and it becomes a 33/35, no high lvl ranger will ever use the summoned arrows from their tolan's unless their hard up for em so you figure arrows w/ at least 8 dam so this becomes 41/35, now last time I checked, a 41/35 anything w/ 250 range and those stats is a nice bow. I just wish I could get one.

No high level ranger will ever used summoned arrows? Says who? Do you think every high level ranger has gotten EQ? Sure, with EQ it makes no sense to use anything but the highest damage/range arrows, but for anyone without EQ, that's an astoudingly expensive statement.

AFAIK, bow range + arrow range = total range.

But I'm no expert on this - my baby ranger is only lvl 24.

Um, the arrows stats are added to the bow, so a 100 range arrow would give the bow 250 range.

#Plirus, Posted: Aug 21 2002 at 5:31 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Actually I'm fairly certain that this is incorrect. It is my understanding that range on bow/arrow is limited to the lesser of the two. If you use a 150 range bow with a 50 range arrow you will only have 50 range. I believe I have read this and it certainly seems to be the case with my ranger.

Thanks for the clarification. That'll teach me to listen to a warrior, LOL. Had I actually tested this or even stopped to think for maybe 10 seconds it would be obvlious that I was incorrect. Oh well.

In my experiance the 2 are combined. if you are a ranger. and happen to still hold onto your 13 22 windsabre ( which is real good vs THO ) and use a tolans arrow. go into velks lab at the top of ramps where there are numerous spawns. you can't shoot wall to wall. use same bow and blessed champion arrow with range of 170 added to 150 bow range from the windsabre and you can shoot wall to wall.
In the end we all stand alone

Plirus: You sir are incorrect.
I'm not sure how you came to form your theory, but you may want to perform a few more "tests".
Bow range is determined by adding the range of the projectile (in this case arrows), to the range of the projectile launcher (see, bows).
Thus, we arrive at the total calculated range factor: Range of bow + range of arrow = total range

Pretty cool how that works, huh?
Just another old-timer that will never see any "uber" content... *sigh*

Actually, they add together, use a 150 arrow with a plain 50 range hunting bow and kill greens in WC, then put on Bow of Underfoot(I love mine, goos since im only a warrior) and do the same, with Bow of Underfoot and my 150 arrows I can pull farther than anyone else I have met.
