View Full Version : Long Bows vs. Cross Bows

which is better for my archer?
if she has higher strength, is the longbow or shortbow better? the crossbow looks more powerful but seems to fire slower and doesn't have a strength modifier. what should i use for an archer with a good amount of strength?

Oh, but if you want the short version, crossbows suck.

Crossbows are bugged, if I'm not mistaken, they're not affected by your dex attribute, only by str.

Actually, as of 1.03, they're not affected by either.

LOL, then what modifies their damage now?

So far as I can tell, nothing.
1.03 broke quite a few things, and it didn't even fix the memory leak like the patch notes claimed it did.

Talk to Sandal, assuming you have access to the camp, yet.
