2h ranged bow weapons lack Enchanted arrows unlike crossbows.
Making crossbows superior over the 2h bows.

They lack bakriminal arrows.
Maybe black stone bolts need to be added to the game with the new ed3 update.

Also charge bows like the decimation cannot shoot any arrows at all.
Rendering them useless during dragon bossing or using black stone arrows.

2h ranged is completely useless compared to bakriminal bolts.

Even a wyvern crossbow with bakriminel ruby bolts(e) gives far more dps than a noxious longbow.
A wyvern crossbow/eldrish crossbow also have salt in the wound.

Dump my nox in the g.e. and give up?

Each weapon has its niche, you could say.

Of course it does seem like it would be nice to have a small thing to make bows better than crossbows for some specific use.

The ascension crossbow and the new eldritch crossbow both blow the noxious longbow out of the (irradiated) water, but I don't think giving one of the unique features of the crossbow away is the answer.

I would prefer if they were to build on more exclusivity instead of plainly replicating functionality from one weapon type to another - bakriminel arrows won't achieve uniqueness, black stone ones do. This way different weapons will have different strengths and weaknesses, why should I bother about using a bow or a crossbow when it doesn't matter anyway? Improvements: Tooltip / (F2P) QoL v2

I did not say to remove bakriminal bolts, but to add bakriminal arrows.

So both crossbows and 2h bows are the same in terms of damage and functionallity.


I didn't say you did. I said that bows having one of the crossbow's unique features-enchanted bolts-would take away from the uniqueness of crossbows.

oh. i see.



However, we do need something to encourage bow use, preferably not a plain old buff.
