Question about Archers, Mostly the Weapons (in General)

I was wondering what the best Bows, Crossbows and Slings hit for an average. I'm talking about the number one weapons in ELB, MsK, AxBow, ExBow, SoD. I'm playing over a very evil idea in my brain but I need to figure out some numbers first.

The number one weapons are not comparable. Biggest ExBow and Msk are x4000, biggest AxBow is x2800, biggest SoD is x8500, biggest ELB is x7000, but the highest-multiplier ELB is x10000.

If you want a comparison of damage, ask for something like at x2000, and have one character compare all the weapons against one other character (in order to isolate variables like ST or AC differences).

Exbow and Axbow deal rather pathetic damage. The SoD and ELB deal the most damage. ELB most on any given minion, SoD most on multi minion teams (note the GA weakness though). MsK deals better damage than the crossbows, but significantly less than a ELB.

All an all, SoD is the best for sheer damage, as it doesn't require the use of training archery.

Thanks Three. I was thinking of adding a second minion at around 750k MPR, another Archer, and throwing a MsK to combat Mages on him. Then at 2mil MPR, throwing either a second ELB or a SoD, to help burn multi minion teams, onto a third archer. Rinse and repeat at 4mil MPR if I ever got that high.

Yes, I know, I know, highly highly highly expensive team. But you have to remember, I never do the norm.
