What has Jon planned for ex/ax/xbows? (in General)
Now some of you noticed you can't forge ax/ex/xbows.
Now has this something to do with a new balance?
Will the xbows be more useful vs wall using teams?
What im thinking is that he is upping the base damage.
Or giving the drain feature more % of drain (str and dex drain)
What do you think?
Will the ex/axbow be back in the picture?
Are some of your 60 million networth ex/axbows now useless?

Well, we will all know in 2 days if Jon plans of making axbows or exbows useful again.
Otherwise some of us will still have 60M NW paperweights sitting in our inventories like they have been for 3 months now.
Like any other weapons, you can still forge ax/exbows... Its just restricted (like all weapons) to the pth.
I don't see how this should have to do with said xbows.
You can't forge weapon X any more?

'Upgrade type: to-hit (damage upgrading temporarily disabled)'
Direct from the forge page.
Perhaps this is what Jon means by "big changes coming"?
I am getting the impression there could be some link between MPR growth and weapon damage modifier growth.

Just throwing up an idea into the air. Since Ex/Axbows were nerfed by PL, there should be a direct counter to it. Therefore, I say those weapons should do extra damage to the PL'd minion, say, %110. It reverses the 90% absorption.
If he has disabled weapon damage forging it's likely a change either to which items can be forged, or to upgrade costs for weapon damage. I smell a weapon boost.
A weapon boost is good hopefully it's for the underpowered weapons that we have lying around

i have a paperweight lying around, a 1mil NW at that.
hopefully something will happen.

I like Pixel's idea, but think that the % to a PL damaged minion should be higher then 110%. Having an Ax/Exbow do much more PL damage would balance out the loss of the dex/st draining ability.
