I've been using bows since 2012 back when they actually WERE OP. Then they got nerfed a couple times to where they are at now.
...said no one ever? Everyone I ask in game that uses bows tends to agree with me.
Only time I see people using bows is so they can just hunt 1 monster at a time in Sky Castle land. And elves using 3x shot.
As for X-Grade arrows, wouldn't that still apply for all the other bows, or will they be limited to only being used with the Thebes bow and the Sharanga? This also means having to craft/buy yet another item to use each time you click the left mouse button.
One of the biggest draw backs of a lot of bows is their procs and how useless they are for general hunting purposes.
None of this has dissuaded me from using bows however. It works well with Samtook and I as we can share a lot of our equipment that we've painstakingly crafted the last 2-3 years.
