    How to do 1k+ with a bow

    Post by IV_Mark_VI on Fri Aug 31, 2012 4:44 pm

    I've seen a few people say this is possible.

    How?

    Composite bow, 40/40 str/dex, powerwithin, large arrows...?

    Anything else?

    I thought hawkring just allowed you to shoot further, does it actually buff damage too?
    Well I guess the arrow would have more "force" if it could go further >_>

    Yes but since the dmg scales with range, the closer the target is higher the damge and the further the target is lower is the damage, the hawk ring gives more damage in mid ranges (i think)

    As far as I understand the mechanics, it does Full damage to it's outer range. After that, the damage diminishes. So if you shoot a bow with a 50 range, the hawk ring will give no damage bonus up to the 50 range marker, but will help when the damage starts to diminish due to range.

    My original question I'll rephrase:
    How do you maximize bow damage in a normal PvP fight? Power within, and perhaps dragon roar?

    1000 dmg with a bow I don't believe for all practical purposes is possible in pvp.

    At 40 40 dex/str comp bow with large arrows (crystal+5) has an AR of 605
    pw would roughly put it at 847, after a 25% dmg increase dragon roar you would hover around

    1,058 AR

    adding red tear ring (and logically lingering ring) to this equation would place AR at 1,588 dmg approx before going through defense.

    In theory yes, you could hit 1000 damage on a player, but in reality, unless they are extremely ignorant in addition to you being unbelievably lucky, this will not happen in a real situation.

    I think you have to do counter when Leo ring equipped (yes Leo ring affects bows too) + power within + red tear stone ring at least.

    don't forget that head shots do more damage, if you used the above set up you'd do best as a sniper.

    I do believe the Hornet's Ring affects headshots. That needs to be tested.

    But really, as long as you can do about 200~ with poison or large arrows, you're good. Because really all you gotta do is dodge like a madman and fire shots. Poison helps panic the person into rushing face first into your arrows.
