    I see. that episode isnt on the list of rotating reruns on bbc though :/

    anyways on topic, I always use magics just to give an extra dimension and option to the way I fight, magic gives opponent something to think about, even if you only use a particular spell once.

    When I play on my Thief, I usually rock black or regular firebombs, mostly because they make me feel like an Assassin out of Diablo 2. But they can also do some damage, people aren't usually used to seeing them used in PvP, and the black ones are awesome for finishing off someone.

    What an insanely flawed poll. No dung, no avelyn. I mean ***, you put dragon weapon R2 attacks, you might as well throwing estus into the mix as well.

    He admitted his mistake in the exclusion of the Dung Pie earlier in the thread, and I think Avelyn would fall under crossbows.

    How would it not? It's combat applications are no different from any other crossbow, except for maybe a mild sweeping motion on strafing opponents due to its multiple shots.

    Firebombs and Pyromancy. Since I usually got a good amount of spares after my... early trip into New Londo (The first place I explore, as I always do), with Pyromancys used only when a Raw Physical Weapon can not do the job. I do not need Miracles nor Sorceries to do my work, and Bows are used for only PvE usage, in those rare occasions (sniping Necromancers and Painted guardians).

    Insanely flawed? i forgot one thing, dung, thanks for pointing that out for the third time. The Avelyn is in fact a crossbow, as reaper said it has the same mechanics as the other crossbows and the descripton reads

    "Repeating crossbow cherished by the weapon craftsman Eidas. Its elaborate design makes it closer to a work of art than a weapon. Intricate mechanism makes heavy damage possible through triple-shot firing of bolts. but in fact each bolt inflicts less damage"

    Also, have you not seen the moonlight sword's r2/rt attack? Please explain how that is NOT a ranged attack and shouldn't be included in this poll.

    Bwahahaa! Nothing beats my fire heavy crossbow +4! Well, actually it's kinda useless. But I still use it.

    I have made thousands of invasions and I can say without a doubt the most often used "ranged" attack, albeit a smallish range, is the stupid wrath of gods. It is spammed relentlessly by frightened n00bs the world over....

    ....I prefer to fight in close with my Darksword. But when it is 2 or 3 against 1 and the chance presents itself I love busting out Fire Tempest.
