PL / Exbow (in General)

BootyGod April 1 2006 11:15 AM EST

Another little PL thing. I could be wrong but I do believe that anyone using PL would be better off with exbow over axbow. Axbow reduces damage but I still find I am getting hit quite alot anyways especially my enchanters. But exbow says hit me all you want but it will not hurt. So with a PL user who reduces the damage farther they will have a hard time kill you with a tank. Mages already have enough troubles with multiple minion teams and a MgS using PL user.

Neither Axbow nor Exbow reduce damage dealt...

or do you mean something else?

he means: if you are using PL, you are reducing damage and moving it to another minion. If you are against tanks, using an Axbow reduces their DX, but you'll still get hit a lot - instead, you should use an Exbow to reduce the damage they can do (by reducing STR) and so keeping the PL minion alive longer.

Or at least, that's what I'm getting out of it.

how do you reduce the damage their tank does when the Exbow effect doesn't lower their tank's ST but their mages ST instead?

That makes no sense Shade.

He means if YOU are using PL, Shade, not if the other team is.

If they are using it, it targets the minion with the highest STR, the tank. He's saying reducing the damage on tanks is important, because PL is used on multi-minion teams, and is already enough of a mage nerf on its own.

/me hopes he is right again. I want another cookie.

right.... *gives OB another cookie*
