We should brainstorm a way for blue players to abuse this and then post it over there so it will actually get looked at and fixed by the devs. They don't even open any forum with the word red or pvp in the title.

Well for 1 an SK can be a vastly overpowered bow kiter. Is it possible that this could circumvent the damage cap below level 30 so a big boy could use a weighted axe, a fast bow and be bowing NPC's for 100's, sub level 30?

And also, I think you are right with your creative solution to this problem. Thing is even if fixed is developed it might not get applied to red. Like how red still can't duck to instant interrupt spells despite being timeline appropriate to be able to do so, and like how green never had that ability taken from them, despite the timeline saying that they should not be able to cancel spell casts with ducks.

=/ so you can't count on your trick working, but its a good trick anyways.

Anyone got a blue toon to test, and then post results? Almost no one even equips a weighted axe on blue (or green) so there is a good chance no one has ever used a bow and arrow with it equipped, and if they did its a small chance they noticed the relationship between the bow damage and the use of the axe. Only on PVP do the limits of the game actually get explored, because they actually matter [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.] thanks for being the good R&D team red players.

It's not super relevant for PVE because your hit rate goes way down. The underlying issue for PVP is the non-classic dex-based accuracy formula which does weird things at the high end. Unfortunately, I don't think we have any era-appropriate logs to recommend a new formula (and the current one is fairly opaque).

The delay of your main hand weapon impacts bow damage.

You can use the lowest delay bow you can get your hands on, and your minimum hit is still over 100 when using a weighted axe.

So to abuse this in PVE you would be bow kiting with an ogre warrior or something.

My question about the base bow damage with a weighted axe could be most impactful if you can exceed level damage caps on sub 20 or sub 30 characters it would be pretty powerful.

But no one is testing it right now. I could ALMOST go test it on blue assuming someone in EC has a weighted axe to sell me. But golly gee, I might just not get around to it!

Maybe though. Wednesday is my free day.

The damage bonus is still level capped.
