    Zweih and bow good combination?

    Post by Leet on Sat Jul 06, 2013 10:57 pm

    I've never ran into someone with a Zweih and a bow so i thought maybe it would be worth a try (or not, maybe that's why i don't see them)

    The bow would be strictly just to poison the opponent. Could it be a good strategy and has anyone used it?

    It would give you spacing, while using the zweih up close and personal to hulk smash.

    It's good.

    But you know, you could get much more stat points if you take off Havel's Ring...

    I like the 56 poise but i suppose 3 points won't make much of a difference.

    Why not? Using a bow is great for almost any weapon/setup.

    Here is my SL 100, currently sitting at SL 55.

    Use bow to poison/damage fast rollers, or use Dung Pies on fatties.

    That doesn't look too bad either. Medium shields aren't my thing though. And i just realized i had a short bow on it instead of a composite bow.

    Looks legit dibbs. I've been using SL120 zweih builds. Gonna try a lower level and see how it goes.

    An offhand Crossbow is actually really good for many of the slower swinging weapons. But I think Bows are good tools on basically any build that can hold one.

    Out of the years i've been playing this, i don't think i've shot a crossbow in PVP one time. I've just recently as of a couple months ago been learning how to use bows.

    But for some reason you really don't see a lot of big weapon/bow builds.

    largely because most big weapons aren't quality build material and most bows require a fair amount of dex point which big weapon users usually have to put into str to hit weapon requirements.

    Yeah, i figured as much. Regardless, the composite bow will do 310. Seeing as i'm only using it to keep some space, and mainly for poisoning purposes, it should work. 

    In theory, the bow should make them wanna come closer in which they get get smashed in the face.

    Chaos Composite bow and 10 humanities send the Bow's AR to 482; but it is split damage.

    Poison deals 3 damage per second and can be removed with an item that can easily be used in the middle of a fight.

    You can get insane damage from a +15 composite bow w/large arrows using the leo ring. There are some Ultra weapons that benefit from the leo....
