Does an axbow drain dex from a ToA? (in General)

Does an axbow drain dex from a ToA or just trained dex? Also will it target the minion with the highest trained dex or does it also factor in a ToA. Does haste work the same way?

include exbows STR drain..=)

But it targets the first minion in the list, its not like special ammo where it targets certain things

But EC drains ToA as well as exp in DX and STR so i would assume its battle DX STR (ToA as well as Exp trained DX and STR).

From my observations, exbows and axbows target the minion with the highest stats (dex for an axbow, str for an exbow), not the first minion in line. Seekers do their thing to mages from an exbow before targeting the minion with the highest strength. Seeing how you only get two hits in ranged, it's unlikely to get the benefit of an ex/axbow with seekers. The problem is that I 'm not sure of the pre-ToA stats and final battle stats of my opponent.

Ax/exbows DO target the person with the highest stat.

They drain based on the fully computed stat, after stat boosting equipment and spells.

Thanks, Undertow. So, just to be clear, if my exbow hits a minion with no trained strength and a ToA, he will be weaker after successful hits? It won't drain his 20 Str and then stop draining?

Targeting from Ammo comes first. So an A/Exbow with seekers would target minions with DD spells in order of the highest first, then move on to minions with the Highest Str/Dex.

Mice if you can kill minions in one round (with multiple hits from dex/pth) or only have the Xbow equipped, and want to bypass any 'chanters.
