In a comment in my last post, Sonvar asked me when I’m going to be replacing my PvP bow with a good PvE bow.
Sonvar, I am the first person to admit that my bow is not the best bow for PvE. Not by a long shot. The reason I’ve been using it this whole time is because I got sick of [Valanos’ Longbow]. Every new-70 hunter and their ravager has Valanos’ Longbow. And no upgrades to it were dropping for me (none has ever dropped for me actually) so I did the honor grind and got myself a spiffy and oh-so-shiny [Gladiator’s Heavy Crossbow]. It’s slow, it’s not an optimum PvE Beast Mastery bow by any means, but it’s served me well regardless.
As for when I’m going to replace it… the answer is… the very second I loot my 150th Badge of Justice. Currently I’m sitting at 93 of ’em or something similarly abysmal. “Pike, why do you need 150 badges?”
This is delicious on so many levels. Improves your hit rating. Improves your crit rating. Improves your attack power. 2.80 speed. 93 DPS. Probably tastes divine when plucked, roasted, and lightly seasoned.
