    Heavy Crossbow or Composite Bow

    Post by Pesth on Fri Jun 22, 2012 5:50 pm

    I want to use a close range elemental bow for PVP with my build,
    i tried this at mugenmonkey: http://mugenmonkey.com/darksouls/?c=1260127412032805

    the lightning crossbow have more damage, but is heavyer and the bolts are more expansive...

    i don't know anything about shooting speed.

    so what you guys recomend for me to use?

    Light Xbow is preferable - it is a lot more of a surprising weapon - harder to dodge cause you can whip it out and shoot instantly.

    i use an avelyn as a secondary weopon its the best crossbow for heavy damage an for foes that tryto run away to heal, but if you want a lighter bow use the composite bow for close range cause the crossbows have to be reloaded after you fire and it leaves you open for a backstab in pvp while the regular bows you can just roll or run away while an arrow is drawn.

    Personally, I'd do a fire composite bow. Those things are BADASS.

    i'm still getting my build to SL 120 (i'm 96 at the moment), so i think i'll stick with a +10 fire composite bow, and when i get to 120 i'll upgrade a avelyn to +5 lightning big grin

    I'd go with the bow for two reasons:

    1. Poison arrows.
    2. Draw cancel.

    Once you tell the crossbow to fire, you're locked in the animation.

    Chaos Composite Bow ftw. Fire arrows are stylish.
