Bug: 213 useless rare items ingame (in General)

AdminShade September 20 2006 11:58 AM EDT

Assassin's Crossbow 100 $3,995,537 $138,167
Enforcer's Crossbow 113 $1,375,096 $-364,663

no comment, they are useless.


Elven Long Bow is cheaper in both X and + upgrades and does more base damage.
Compound Bow is cheaper in X upgrades (+ I don't know) and does more base damage.
Sling of Death is cheaper in X upgrades and thus also does more base damage as well as spreading damage which can't be blocked 100% or evaded.

Enforcer's / Assassin's Crossbows: have more expensive X upgrades. They do less damage than the abovementioned weapons.

They don't drain the Strength or Dexterity they used to do because of the coming of Phantom Link.

They only have 2 hits in ranged rounds as opposed to the other ranged weapons. This again makes them do less damage.

When will the changelog be that Jonathan trades them in for money? >.<

That's a big bug shade.

AdminShade September 20 2006 12:34 PM EDT

Yup, a bug with a total NW of $554,945,548

$15,161,647,630 total item net worth

That makes this bug 3,66% of total NW in the game.

At least you do not have 61.5M invested in one :(

Thank you Shade.

AdminShade September 20 2006 12:42 PM EDT

True, my part of that is 'only' 8.4 +1.7 million...

"Sling of Death ... as well as spreading damage"

Well, that's true only if you can get your hands on Explosive Shots...

I always considered the whole point of specialty bows to be dampening the huge STR and DEX single minion teams could come up with, and they certainly are still effective in that respect. If that's the niche Jon wants them in, and it certainly seems that way, we've got no bastile to storm...

12mil for me.. I'm still using my axbow though, basically because I can't get rid of it for a good price. So no, I wouldn't have anything against a deletion and refund. With that money I could buy a nice elbow ;)

I wil add, i did sell a named AX to the store for 300k yesterday...

Well, I will say that because I have no PL both axbows and exbows are hurting my team pretty badly because of the change to invisibility with regards to seeking.

Infact teams I used to be able to beat can now beat me hands down because of this. :/

Now Johnny.... you are ruining my enjoyment of the changemonth hysterics. :P

heh, I'm just trying to avoid seeing the store full of 'useless' items!
