    If someone is slowly walking backwards while constantly shooting arrows at me then I would just a) run serpentine and smash him in the face when I get to him, or b) constantly roll at him dodging his arrows.

    I'm hoping we can deflevct the arrows.

    The way I see it, there are pros and cons to every weapon, including the bow. It's not at all overpowered and I don't think it'll need a nerf. Even though people can move backwards while shooting it still 1.) Requires WAY more stamina 2.) is slow enough for any non-trash player to react

    We've only seen one of in the video, at it was very small, I'm pretty sure there will be other types of bow aswell.

    1 word. Block. Arrows are limited after all. If they don't engage to chip, just block/heal until they're ready to fight.

    Anyways, I'm glad they got a buff. They're useful as is, but not especially dangerous (pvp) most of the time, which bothers me.

    PS, people stop down voting for no reason. Down votes are for unhelpful, intentionaly misleading or blatantly offensive posts, not for someone saying they intend to use what looks to be a good weapon.

    Yea. I've been noticing that someone has been downvoting half of my things even when they're helpful. Not sure why. Is there anyway I can find out who it is?

    I don't even understand why someone would down that.
    I'll be using them too. Even in DkS a Composite Bow is an end game weapon.

    This is true. Anyone saying that the bows are going to be op, just check the huge stamina consumption...you can maybe fire like 3 times with the full stamina bar (a least with the bow he was using in the tech demo).

    Not that I know of lunar. I had an anonymous down repper for a while too. I'll just correct it when I see it. He'll probably give up eventually

    It reminded me of TERA *shudder*

    Yeah, that little white "explosion" every single time the arrow impacted got me worried. I really hope that is not from regular arrow impact. Hopefully there is something magic about the bow or the arrow.

    Oh, and please, for the love of god, give the crossbows a little respect this time. There is no real reason to use one right now unless for style or unless you are using Avelyn...

    Forgive the noobish question but, how do you know if you've been down voted? Just if your Rep number is one lower? What if your rep is 0?
    This is the first Forum that I've posted on more than 5 times so I'm new to the way forums work, or is the rep just on this site only?
    Again sorry for such a noob question. silly

    Yes your rep will suffer a decrease and you can go into negative numbers. You can check your vites/rep under your user profile

    Bows are always in hand for PVE when I am playing... purely for sniping purposes. Would I backpedal using a bow on, what looked like an Umber Hulk? No way! Rush the bugger with a Zwei and hack it to pieces.
    I think you will need a god-awful amount of points invested into Endurance to just keep firing your bow as a specialist. I'm happy with the change and if I do come across one of them just charge with your shield up and poke him to death!

    imo they're gonna be even more annoying for pvp, hopefully the damage gets nerfed a bit. what I REALLY want is for my xbow to be able to reload on my own and not stand there for one second opened for an attack(which bows don't do).

    I won't use them much, maybe a little in PvE. But they will be fun to fight against in PvP.

    With this much stamina consumption they had on the tech demo, bows are not going to be a problem since no one can afford to flip around and spam arrows anymore.

    I remember that in the demo video the character didn't stop moving while using an item, so perhaps they're changing the whole "locked in place" aspect of item/weapon usage. I would welcome that change.

    That said, non-Avelyn style crossbows should really have like a clip or something. Not BERSERK level so you can just fire forever, but something like 5 shots. You get free usage of your crossbow 5 times, then you're forced to pause and reload.

    Would make them more viable IMO.

    Having watched the vid over again a number of times it looks llike the stamina is consumed on drawing back the string to the bow... He only gets 3 shots off with a full stamina bar
