Good bow
# Jun 26 2004 at 8:16 AM Rating: Decent
If my target is snared {like it should be) the proc breaking my root does not matter. It hits hard. I will just re-root. I like this bow. Any proc is just a quicker kill. Oh well about the agro. Good bow.

What exactly does the effect do??
RE: Effect?
# Aug 20 2003 at 1:05 PM Rating: Excellent
It is a 50 point Direct Damage proc.
True or Not?

This bow can be used by a RNG very well if you consider that whilest an animal which is feared and on the run while snared makes a great target and having the DD + the usual crit. hits would simply take them down faster, for example Rockhoppers make great feared pebble dd's at lvl.55 :)

Just my 2 cents!
This bow/That bow

K.....I have read all the posts here and am not really sure why people are getting upset with the young person who said it is not FOR Rangers, you are all taking it wrong. He is not saying that the bow is not physically for you to weild but rather that for those who are trying to figure out why there is a dd and not a dot effect is fairly simple.
This bow was not designed for a Ranger to use as a primary ranged weapon but rather for those other classes that can use the bow who can not do as much damage cause their skill lvl can never be as high as a Rangers with Bow's. This bow was designed more with those classes in mind.
While a Ranger may want this they will soon find that the agro created from the dd and the fact it will break a root spell does not make it a terribly effective weapon for a Ranger. A bow with a dot would be better suited for a ranger.

this is just my 2 cp

my honest oppinion on this bow is there is no favored class, there are situations where i as a warrior use my bow a bit more, but most of the time i shoot a mob one or two times for tagging on pulls, if this bow procs alot i would use to get a bit more agro on my tags, if it doesnt proc alot then id be happy to let a ranger use for that extra bit of dmg output. just my 2cp

kk a few corrections to what yer saying


rangers warriors an rog's all get the same bow lvl skill. The only differnce on a rangers bow dmg output only changes once they start to get AA's in archery mastery and endless quiver.


the only class who has a low skill for bows are

sk's an pallies, they only reach 75 i believe.

So yer info doesn't really jive with what he was saying.

I'm not entirely sure, but think he's talking about the fact that Rangers automatically crit with Arrow shots even w/o aa and the other classes with archery don't. I could be wrong, but think that's what he's talking about.

First of all, warriors crit with bows.
Second, it doesn't take AA's to cause a ranger to do more damage, we start getting double damage on non-rooted stationary (read engaged) mobs at level 51. Granted, AA's make it insane, but... we do more damage overall with a bow than any other class starting at level 51, period. Up till 51, warriors, if they keep up their archery skill, do just as much.

I laugh as all you rangers try and figure out the merits of this bow. I think you miss the picture. This bow is NOT FOR YOU. This bow is for those of us who can not do the extrodinary damage you can do with a bow like me, a lowly paladin who can only max out his skill with a bow at 75 at level 55. To me this bow rocks because it allows me to hit something a little harder from a distance "sometimes". I think that's why the dd and not the dot "if it is true that dots have less a chance to break roots". Just more support for the idea that THIS BOW IS NOT FOR YOU :)

RE: Weapon Usage
# May 05 2003 at 9:35 PM Rating: Decent
I am laughing out loud. How can you say that a bow is not for use by a Ranger? That is like saying 2hs is only for Pallys or SKs and peircing is only for Rogues. This bow is for use by any of the race/classes that are listed. however, you should not be upset that Rangers can do more damage with bows than other classes. That is our special ability, just as other classes have their abilities. The bottom line is that each class should maximize their abilities to be the most efective they can be at fulfilling their roles, period.

i dont think anyone is upset here. except maybe the rangers that have a its a bow gimmie attitude about this or any bow. other classes need a ranged weapon too. being from a pvp server i know the value of a good ranged weapon and bows are the best since they have the largest range of any item you can buy make or whatever. i think the point this young pally is making is dont judge this bow against other bows that are ranger only cos they will be better and dont assume every damn bow in the game is ment souly for one class that is as bad as a monk saying a nice all all item that weights nothing should be monk first. as a rogue i dont feel that i should get every dagger i see and personally i wouldnt want them all. ie bloodpoint procs a dd lifetap super agro on that why do i want agro i mean a 400+ bs is bad enough.

also on a side note i play a ranger too and he is using the first tunare bow (not trueshot) and wouldnt mind an upgrade with better delay since i solo him alot
This bow and its proc
# Apr 03 2003 at 4:08 AM Rating: Decent
Well Just got this bow tonight, and im liking it already.. Granted, its slow, I been using a true bow of balance, and a windsaber before this, but it hits hard.
As for the proc, who cares what DD it does. when you got AM3 the only proc that will help is probably ice comet or better.. (for those of you who dont know what am3 is, its archermy mastery 3. an AA ability. And I watched a AM3 lvl 65 ranger with this same bow, using trueshot, critting for 1800pts max.
So, you wanna complain about the proc. good enough. Personaly I could give a rats behind what it does, its the baseline dmg that counts.

PS. if you need a proc to make any weapon worth while, you need a better weapon.
RE: This bow and its proc
# Apr 16 2003 at 10:12 AM Rating: Default
i agree with harrower, I would rather have a great damage/delay over a cool proc any day. procs are nice but the only one a main assist needs is a aggro generating one. extra damage doesnt really come into effect unless you have an insane dex and proc 30 times per comabt.

just one warriors opinion
RE: This bow and its proc
# Apr 13 2003 at 8:47 AM Rating: Decent
Wrong. Many weapons would suck without their proc. Look at the BoC (blade of carnage) and SoD (sceptre of destruction.) On my server the BOC goes for 500+k and the SOD goes for 300k, ONLY because they have nice procs. the sod would be pretty worthless without its proc, and the BOC would be worth a lot less.

I love seeing crap posted that has no relavance to this bow. ROOT, why in the hell is anyone discussing root on this page.

1) Rangers root a mob only when they are soloing it and either want to test for crit's on the mob or are low mana working a mob to death with arrows.

2) I also have a 51 druid, Dots dont break root, root is based off of its own timer based on per/lvl and spell lvl vs mob lvl. Its gonna break anyway eventually.

3) Talk about the bow, and its proc. Dont waste space for someone to half to read a bunch of crap nothing to do with a bow they want.

4) Personally I prefer the nightmarewood too, i mean tier 2 mobs dropping a bow that does 50dd kinda blows. IF I wanted massive DD from my bow I'd use my now almsot obsolete Bow of the Huntsman from Gleed Quest and Proc 91DD every 2-3 shots. Yes i have 210dex so i do almsot proc every other shot.

---keep the page alive folks. Don't beat a dead horse with more dead ignorance. Post a correction thats factual, for the less wweb search experienced that do play. Cause your post might be the one I go correct next MUHAHAHAHA

Just messing w yas enjoy the game lol :)

Wrong...somewhat. DoTs CAN break root, IF, like the shaman dots, they have a DD component. E-Bolt, for instance, is a powerful dot, but what you have to worry about is the 110dd that hits as soon as you cast it on something.

Mobs have a simple chance of breaking root every tick, up to the max duration of the root, but any dd spell/proc gives the mob an instant chance to break root. So both of you are right, to an extent. Druid/ranger DoTs do not break root because they have no DD component, but Shaman/beastlord DoTs DO have a DD component, and so they may break root sooner.
# May 06 2003 at 11:53 AM Rating: Decent
I have a hard time believing that dots don't break root. I have been soloing seafuries in OoT for 3 levels now and literally every single time i cast Envenomed Bolt on them they break root. I can't believe that the literally hundreds of furies I have takenout solo all happened to break root when they did and Bolt had nothing to do with it.
# May 06 2003 at 4:08 PM Rating: Default
For those of you that are slow the DOT does not break the root, the dd portion of the above spells do.... damn not that hard to believe, ask any sk if their dots ever break root (outside of disease cloud which has a dd component and is a WEAK **** dot) so to sum up DD breaks roots, some dots have a DD component (scourge, ebolt etc)..
# Jul 21 2003 at 6:25 PM Rating: Default
i hope that one person was sierously joking when they said SoD an BoC are only good cause of the procs... ok /flame on

Ok bro Sod an BoC were the 1337's weapons outside of primal weapons pre-luclin.

Sod no longer even drops, that is one reason to why it is worth so much, Its like having a prenerf CoS or something, its obviously alot more useful to its nerfed counterpart.

SoD also is a 12/18 there were no other weapon ratios out there with that great of a ratio.

Damage: 12
Delay: 18
Ratio: 1.5 Amazing
Str: +10 Sta: +10 Dex: +10 HP: +50
Weight: 0.2
Weapon Skill: One Hand Blunt
Classes: Ranger Shaman Druid Cleric Paladin Shadowknight Bard Monk Rogue Warrior Beastlord
Races: All Races )

That weapon also proc's at lvl one. an if you know anything it comes from ST. and that isn't a zone u could of just walked into an killed the guardian for, you needed a very organized raid party. Trust me pre-luclin ST made Tier zones almost look tame. (not saying anything higher then tier 2 mobs.) And getting into ST isn't an easy task, it takes many talismans to do the turn in to get yer ST key.

SoD also procs at lvl 1 and it also is useable by MANY classes.

I am sorry but your thought on a SoD being only worth soemthing b/c it has a nice proc is full of ****. I have dueled ppl with SoD's and its not a proc fest like so many of you must think.

If i compare proc rates to a fleshgrinder i have seen the flesh grinder proc way more then the SoD. But 2 SoD procs are over 700dmg so its dmg is well made up for.

So how the hell is that weapon even close to worthless. If u subtracted the proc it is still a 12/18 with kick *** stats. Closest weapon i could compare that is almost the same without a proc would be a shortblade of lightning which is a 13/19 and is worth about 25-30kish on 7th or possibly a curved claww which is a 11/18 which goes for about 15kish.

So onto a BoC. This was the weapon that EVERY warrior who wanted to be ub3r had to have. This weapon is what a split blade of destruction is but minus the proc...

Blade of Carnage
Damage: 15
Delay: 20
Ratio: 1.333 Amazing
Str: +15 Sta: +15 Dex: +15 Magic Resist: +3 Fire Resist: +3 Cold Resist: +3 Poison Resist: +3 Disease Resist: +3 HP: +100

15/20 is more then a amazing. most weapon like that pre-luclin were only avaiable to rng's (rng'r only weapons) The 15str is nice but what is the best about this is is 100hp pure and 15sta which for me atm is close to around 82.5hp (i got 5.5 hp so far at 58 per one sta.) so giving me close to 200hp on a 1hand item is sweet, you just can't compare. It also procs at lvl1 and coes from the AoW, AoW hits from anywhere from 200-1.2k a hit which means u can see possible 2-3k dmg rounds which means u better have some good clerics or else it would of been a cr. And since pre-luclin most warriors broke around 6-7k of hp unlike now where we have tons of items with 100h on em an etc etc etc.

Which means once again pre-luclin you wouldn't be touching this puppy unless you were in a organized guild with some man powah behind it.

All these weapons would still be awesome even without the procs. You got no idea what the hell you are talking about and these weapons deserve every reason to be still looked back on an remembered as the best of the best. These weapons came from tough *** mobs that are the = of high end raid zones of today. Its funny to watch the newps talk about how these weapons = the suk or they aren't as good as everyone thinks, but these are the same ppl who hoped on the everyone has to havea centi ls band wagon lmao. At one time i don't think i could of seen one mid lvl warrior who wasn't running around with a CLS in both hands....

so next time b4 you open yer mouth do some damn research cuz the $hit yer bashing is $hit you proly will never touch or even get to use. Just be happy ppl even still sell em, and half the time many keep em for their twinkies, remember these do proc at lvl 1....yer cls ain't $hit compared to these puppies that twink our every day monkies an warriors.

Three weeks now after buying this bow in the Bazaar and NEVER being able to equip it (and being told by Guides that it is indeed bugged and will be fixed) my bow goes from being Recommended Level of 53 with no Required Level to being Required Level 55. I am not even close to 55 yet.

And in those three weeks I couldn't sell the thing to save my life.

Thanks Uncle Verant!

Serendorph, are you sure you were not seeing both the dmg message and the non-melee dmg message? I'm asking because you said highest git was for 144 with a proc of 144. Did it give the normal message that comes with all procs(spell messages)?

Don't get me wrong, I would love for you to be right. I'm putting my Nightmare down in favor of this one next level because mt ratio is better due to not using the full stats of the nightmare.

The Direct Damage from this bow is a 50 point Unresistable DD spell. I have one, which I use just for fun, normally opting for my Nightmarewood Compound Bow. It drops off the giants in Plane of Storms as a random drop.

As for a bow proccing on every hit, if you are looking at the "mob_01 is hit by non-melee damage" message, bows are non-melee, and that message pops up with EVERY hit. It is not the proc, it is your bow shot. The proc will specifically state that your target is hit by a "flurry of pebbles". Please learn something about the skill before you post incorrect information.

# Dec 01 2002 at 9:40 PM Rating: Good
You must have been looking at the normal dmg message and the non-melee dmg message. This proc is 50dd period, and does not proc on every hit, not even close! If it did what you said don't you think it would cost WAY more than 10k? Time to stop freaking out :)

Aloha all --

Happy thoughts to those who came up with the larger variety of "good bows" for younger outriders pre-ST capable. It is sad that the pebbles are a root breaking DD as opposed to a vortex of pebbles smacking your target over time :-)

My real question is what is the graphic for this bow? I have yet to see someone equip it so I was wondering, is it a new model?

Thanks and happy hunting

It does have the a new graphic. It's the same as the cultural Blessed Faydark Thunderbolt and it's ilk.

All in all, a good solid all around bow, better than Dragon Necro, worse than the higher end bows.

Really sucks if you're a ranger. They break root too often for my taste. I'd rather see a bow with a 50 point DoT than a 50 point DD. That way I don't have to burn my mana rooting the mob to plink away on 'em.

Never had a mob break root from a DoT, ever.

I use the tactic of snare, root, stack up DoTs, and plink to soften the mobs up. Repeat until close to last bub, a nuke to break root and get them running, then come in and finish them off with little or no loss of HP.

That's my Stragety for non-fear kite mobs when I solo.

Also never heard that DoT breaks root. The only thing i know, maybe not everyone knows is, that if you put a very strong DoT (no Ranger DoT for sure hehe) on a mob you have a chance to get aggro from that. Thats all i know *shrug

dot's don't break root in and of themselves unless they have a dd component ex: envenomed bolt.

and yes, dropping a high enough dot(s) on a mob will **** it off. ask any necro that's done a wee bit too much overstacking. worse part about dot aggro is unlike a nuke, the dot *keeps* doing damage, so yer dot can keep ye pretty high up on the aggro list.

RE: DD on bows
# Nov 12 2002 at 7:31 AM Rating: Default
That is just untrue.

As a Druid this is how I do some of my most efficient soloing. I root the mob and DoT it. The DoTs do not break my roots like my DD spells do. You should try it out, I'll think you find the same to be true for you.

Edited: Removed my comments about Shaman DoTs since apparently they have a DD effect to them.

RE: DD on bows
# Nov 12 2002 at 7:44 AM Rating: Good
Shaman DoT's do have a chance of breaking root but that is because the initial component of the DoT is a DD. Root just works differently than snare does. With root the mob gets a resistance check to break root every 7 seconds (i.e. every tick) and DD's increase their chance of success for breaking the root unlike snare which is a fixed time movement reduction spell. When it hits the mob it last for a certain duration and nothing less. Unless of course the mob is dispelled. The only snare I have seen with a random time counter could be Tangling Weeds, the ranger quick snare they got with Luclin. I have seen it wear off mere seconds after it landed, but have never had snare last any shorter than its full duration.

RE: DD on bows
# May 06 2003 at 7:54 AM Rating: Decent
Enchanter DoTs also have a DD effect when first cast. I partner with an Enchanter sometimes and we had to work out a meathod for root cooking. I would snare, she DoTs, then I root, and then stack my DoTs while she walks close enough to get hit to aggro pet.

On subject though, this bow would be nice for anyone who doesn't have better and is high enough level to use it.

The whole game is a matter of oppenion. You make the decisions for what you want to fight with and what armor to wear.

Just think how boring it would be if everyone in a class wore what everyone else was wearing of that class. Who would you show your new gear off to then? They would already have it.
