What do you consider best ranged weapon for me?

A) Elven Long Bow
B) Assassin's Crossbow
C) Enforcer's Crossbow

With archery trained, it is a no brainer, an ELB.
With Bloodlust trained an Axbow.
With Unarmed Combat train an Exbow (Maybe??)

I'm also going to be using an Elven Long Sword

Glory hit this one one the head (except that i think an axbow is always better than the exbow)

You have archery. If you plan on keeping it go with an ELB. If you plan on taking it off (for any reason) then go with axbow.

And either way Beleg's would not be a bad idea, but especially if you go with the ELB :)

ELB seems disgusting, but you might find yourself missing some Axbow users, and that gets frustrating.

For a 4 minion team I'd probably recommend the exbow since reducing strength leaves your wall / enchanter minions around for longer. For a solo tank, axbow is better since it leaves you untouchable from other tanks.

:) A bit belated, but a slightly different answer.

If you want to do the most damage possible in your two ranged attacks, use an ELB.

EXBows aren't that great, unless you can get one high enough to reduce Str to zero. Same deal with EC. Strength reduction doesn't make a massive impact on damage, unless you can get it to or closs to zero.

As for an AXBow, if you need to reduce anyones dex with it (a ToA tank for example) you're not going to hit them, unless you have a massive pth. If you have a high enough Dex to allow your AXBow to hit, then your don't really need to reduce your targets dex... This bow seems kinda silly now.

An Axbow can useful - Vaynard's character Stalker uses one. But Stalker is a ToE Tank. So I'd presume that reducing dex is probably more useful there than if he equipped a ToA.

Seems to work anyway 740k score isn't too shabby....

Stalker has the fifth biggest AXBow at +60. It would be great versus ToA tanks that don't have DB s. Otherwise it would never hit them. :(

Versus other non ToA tank it would be useful for gaining an advantage in the melee rounds, but who many non ToA tanks are there?

what i did with my ET teams.



I had a ELB before i got the Axbow, so i sold the ELB and made my Axbow and MH bigger.
