    Best bow for a dex/faith build?

    Post by WyrmHero on Mon May 14, 2012 10:05 pm

    My build has 40 dex / 50 faith. I was thinking using Moonlight Arrows and Poison Arrows. I like the Darkmoon Bow, it has high AR but it is too spread out between physical and magical. The magic AR/scaling is also low for the Moonlight Arrows. I was trying the Divine Composite Bow...but maybe the Black Bow of Pharis has better magic AR? I need opinion from expert archers.

    I'd definitely roll with the BBoP. The scaling is just so good, and its range is fantastic.

    The BBoP has a slower arrow pull than DM bow, and I'd go for a faster shot in PvP. I'd check the stats for divine/occult composite bow. Honestly though, you'd probably be better off using a +15 composite bow and large arrows for all physical damage since you've already got forty DEX.

    I'm checking the DM bow, divine BBoP and divine Composite Bow. I'm not using occult as the build is roleplaying a warrior of the gods. Surprisingly, Composite has the highest magical AR of the three, I do some damage tests on reim and post later.

    @Dirk I haven't used bows yet in all these 6 months of playing, so I'm trying them.

    The Div. BBoP+9 did ~150 damage.
    The Div. Composite+9 did ~170 damage.
    The DM Bow did ~130 damage sad .

    Why not a divine shortbow? Shortbow scales better with Dex while composite scaling is spread across Str and Dex. You may wind up better off with a shotty

    I wouldn't bother with a Longbow like the BBoP in PvP unless you stick to the forest. Any where else and the longer draw animation will get you killed.

    My suggestion (assuming you can spare the materials to make it worth it) would be to have +4 crystal shortbows. Just a bit short on the AR rating of the Darkmoon Bow, but it's ALL physical.
