In Motion got this bad boy to drop on our first CoA raid tonight. Aye, we spanked Jelvan on our first Anguish run. Grats again, Gaau. But you still deserve this: /smack

It IS very rare, but drops what seems 1/10 clears for my guild, but of course, Rangers get a Plaguebreeze and NBoB and deguild, not fun :/

Does in fact seem very rare. Out of ~30-40 Anguish clearings I think we've had 3 drop total.

This bow is just a myth from what i seen it doesnt drop or Jelvan is just being super stingy and needs to come off with a few

Check my Magelo :p

All the active rangers plus one rogue and a paladin in my guild got that one as well. It's not that rare if you can handle the Jelvan script. We got a total of six of these beauties since the beginning of January. But maybe no one has beaten that script yet on your server, which would explain you never seen anyone wield this =)

throwing 15%??

I appreciate that they might want to increase throwing with this effect, but it is not well thought out. In order to have the effect this item must be worn, and only in range slot. In order to throw something, that throwing ammo must be in the range slot as well. You can not throw with a bow in range and throwing ammo in the ammo slot. I really do wish you could but un fortunatly you can't. Therefore this throwing bonus is impossible to use. I check the focus effect itself it is only on this one item, therefore it is not like an effect that covers all range combat on mulitple items.

The reason that Throwing +15% is listed is because it is an effect of the focus effect Sharpshooting V. If you were to have Sharpshooting V on, say, your thrown weapon, it would grant a +15% bonus to Throwing and Archery as well, despite the fact that there would be no point to adding the bonus to Archery, because you can't have a bow there. It's a focus effect that grants the bonus, not just a simple bonus like the +2% bonus to throwing granted by the Grimling Armband of Servitude.

Simple enough to follow?

Like nyteshayd said, the combination of these two mods is generic. Note that all the known Sharpshooting I, II and III mods are on armor pieces for Face, Shoulders, Fingers and Ears and they do affect throwing hits here.

But you're correct somehow - the knows sources of Sharpshooting IV and V can't possibly affect throwing for the reason you mentioned =)

Hey, this looks like the new #1 dps bow, can anyone who reads up on the ranger boards confirm?

It is the most damaging bow atm, mean ratio is 1,86 versus 1,73 of the Darkiron Bow according to the table. (Ratio is including the use of 11/4 arrows)

In addition to that, this bow also got one more rank of "Sharpshooting", increasing it's chance to hit by another 3% compared to the previous champion.

PS : And it's the winner in the stats category as well :p

Number one in DPS, but if you are 75% or more melee focused, as SoE says they want us to be, the Frozen Bow of the Gelidin will be better for melee. If just shooting, this bow is best, though not by a whole lot, but a significant amount. Plus, lower delay means more shots and more opportunities to hit, which helps a bit as well.

May I ask why the Gelidin is better for melee ? These are the stats of the FBotG
Damage: 49 Delay: 38
Range: 220
AC: +35
Str: +20 Dex: +25 Sta: +25 Wis: +15 Int: +15
Disease Resist: +20 Cold Resist: +20 Magic Resist: +20 Poison Resist: +15
HP: +225 Mana: +225 End: +225
# Combat Effects: +5
# Archery: +5%
# Attack: +25
# Regeneration: +5

Plaguebreeze got 4 more AC, a little more total resists (+10) and a whole lot more HP (+75) These are the stats I care about the most personally.
This leaves the Gelidin with its last four effects...
Regeneration is nice, but doesn't give the bow quite the edge over the Plaguebreeze imo. Combat Effects.. well, I guess they could be useful, but haven't seen parses yet and your ATK will probably be capped by the time you can lay your hands on this beauty.
So if you ever read this again, I'd be happy if you'd elaborate why the Gelidin would be better for a melee =)
