    bad configuration of the gwenfara set, in a group of 5 you remain without attacks and without mentioning in the boss, it is better a long bow that allows you to throw several explosive arrows, almost like a wizard god

    Alliance bow? Actually it is a history now :)
    I used to play on Power of Alliance but not anymore ... I switched to Sargon's bow. (the Alliance Bow is just a skin)
    Power of the Alliance bow has one useful feature ... the set bonus for only ONE item. 15% increased all resistance when picking up healing orbs. That is a cool boost for a 1H build that is going into a close combat. I am familiar and used to that gameplay and that is why the new Damage Jewel is on my list of must use items. Just watch at the end of the video how many healing orbs left on the ground unused ... and who knows how many of them I did use during the fight. Healing orbs are not scarce ... they are dropping. Even those minor spheres are useful.
    As for the damage ... There are a plenty ways to pull damage off. You only need to think out of the box ... when making calculations don't plan the build as you would do with q7 or any hoaxbow build.
    ATM I am not using my best items and I have many things to improve ... so the damage will only get higher ... a lot higher.
    The defense will get higher as well. ATM I am not having a single upgraded Amethyst and Diamond (not even improved).
    I still don't have crafted platinum items (only 2 or 3) ... and I am still not using the Gwenfara's quiver with my 3x Magic Jewels of Ghost Power.

    sorry but… Can it work without the bow? Because I'm thinking a lot to make a 1h build but to me is pretty paradoxical: you can't use gwenfara's bows because you are always without concentration, but if you use the quiver with a longbow you have to spam all the time hunting arrow/deadly sweep to keep the buff so you don't deal damage:confused:

    What I tried atm is gwenfara's bow plus quiver, and I solved the lack of concentration with q5 shoulders (4/4 res), q8 torso (maybe q1 is better for this goal, but q8 has more armour and is faster in maps) and q6 amulet; I crafted the quiver full crit damage so I can use 2 q4 rings full hp crafted and with the runes of crit damage I could craft amulet full hp too so I can fight better melee to use deadly blow and deadly sweep and no more concentration problems, but I think I need more gems and idk whatever to improve this, it's just for fun now, do you think it can work?

    And what's your opinion on gnob's bow plus q1 set? You have never told about it as a possibility.

    Sargon's bow? That must be something ancient :/ Speaking of that, what is this supposed to be? A new 1h meta? :eek: When is this coming?
  6. trakilaki

    trakilaki Living Forum Legend

    What new meta? That was a speculation from my side in discussion in the other thread. Based on the Sragon/Dragan event story line and the equipment both of them are using. Sargon is on 1H Dragan on 2H ... and the shift has happened during the transition times. So if we are expecting Sargon again ... it is logically to assume there will be a new meta based on 1H items.
    Yeah that weapon is ancient newest 1h weapon in the game :D
    I was testing it for a few days ... the buff is loading fast with only HA. The buff is loading from start even when the buff is actually active.
    I will try it again and see if it is usable ... nothing is set in stone I can change to Sargon's quiver anytime. None of them are crafted so I can't lose anything :) Believe it or not I am playing with crap quiver that is not even properly crafted XD so I won't be losing anything

    Gnob's bow like Ballet dance bow?
    I am not using Blade Dance in PvE so that bow is useless to me. But it could be good for rangers who are using that skill.
    Q1 set is also connected with Blade Dance ... not really my cup of tea.

    I'm sorry, I'm thick and slow.
    You're saying you're using this bow on the live server, right? I can't seem to find it in shops or entrance screens to dungeons, so the only explanation my dumb brain could come up with is that you've had this bow since Sargon event (that I did not play 'cause it was long ago) and refined it with equip.refiners.

    If it's not the case, can you please explain? (You see, I'm interested in the item.)
    Also, why is there this note on the wiki page: "Test Server: Not yet released on the live server;"? Are you expecting Sargon's return and this bow (updated) coming with it?
    And... devs could make a "hoaxbow" from it just like they did with e.g. Bearach's bow, or?

    Yes I am using it on live server :D
    Gnob had a temporary offer in his shop last month.
    This was the offer and the prices

    Theoretically, yes. Practically, it's unlikely.

    Before R185, ranger had no 2h weapon, as we know. That's why ranger had a longbow everywhere where the other classes had a 2h.

    Then, they started converting those longbows into hoaxbows, for the sake of "consistency". Since that made up for almost every single longbow in the game, they started converting some shortbows into longbows, so that there would be some, too. They added some new ones as well. That's what they did to Sargon's bow: it was a shortbow before. So, since it has already been made into a longbow, I don't think they are going to make a hoaxbow out of it... it's, in the least, highly unlikely.

    It is quite likely as well... that, or they're going to keep that set as a sale set.

    Personally, I think they just updated the set now and they made it available through the Gnob's offers. When the Sargon comes, those offers won't come anymore and it'll be available from him.

    That wouldn't make sense at all. The last Sargon's bow was available on lvl45... so the refined version would be level 45, too. Then, it would take lots of glyphes to up it and even then it would make no sense, because the base values would be lower than on a normal 55lvl item. I don't know the reason for that, but it seems it is so. It'd lose its purpose, which is the increased damage from the unique value, that would probably (haven't done the math) barely make up for the loss. So, even Power of the Alliance would be better than the old refined Sargon's bow.

    It is in many unfinished articles.

    Sargon's bow was never a shortbow :p
    I am still keeping the original level 40 version


    The only thing that was changing from time to time was the name of the set.
    The name changed from Sargon's Shadow Weaponry to Sargon's Immortal Shadow Weaponry.
    Last time it was available on level 55. It was also available via Unlucky spheres ... but it could be also bought just recently (not updated) before it was reworked.
    I have those items on TS.

    Oops :oops: Why is it so... short, though?

    He was talking events. Also, unlucky spheres were never a reliable way to get anything. Besides, who in the right mind would buy a set that gives maluses in the time when things have changed a lot?
    I'm pretty sure everyone who has the old version of the bow in the live servers has it from the age old events.

    I thought the buff from Gwenfy's Jewel were stacking (45x3), but after seeing this pic I realize only one of them is active when ghost energy triggers. I almost pulverize this item today, luckily I didn't. I only got one from last Halloween, so I didn't know this was like that.

    Yes, but look at the total, it is 45% ≈ only one, not 135% or 3x45%. That's what I meant.
  16. trakilaki

    trakilaki Living Forum Legend

    The 45% in the description is a text describing the effect of one jewel ... it is not a variable.
    the effect is 3x45%
    The max buff is 160% (45+45+45)+25

    Hey, so here is my ranger:

    I want some help on what I should build. I think my items are good but is there anything even better I could try to get?
    It is worth to continue crafting them right?

    Also, I have theese two helmets and I don't know which to use to craft my dragan's helmet.
    Helmet 1:
    Helmet 2:

    Should I craft my ring or my helmet first? I still haven't made a good 4x gold crit dmg ring to use but I'm working on it.

    Also, I always use +Attack Speed and +24k HP buffs.

    Here are all of my other enchancements.
    Lehein's Ring:
    Dragan's ring:
    Boots: Unenchanted
    Pauldrons: Unenchanted

    Thank you very much for your time!!!

    Craft helmet 2 and use Green Raptor if you want more damage. Craft a 4x damage helmet in the meantime you upgrade your onyxes.

    You can start crafting a 4x critical damage ring with golden values in the Lehaine ring while you work on a better (platinum) one, as the materials for crafting this ring are easier to farm than Dragan's.

    I wanna craft the Dragan's ring as the other one is good enough for now. Since there is the Winter event running, draken cores are not much of an issue. That's why I asked what I should craft FIRST. I am sitting on 136 draken cores and I am constantly playing the event.

    Also, maybe I should craft an other helmet? What's the combinations I should try to get?

    I am using a purple Green Raptor which gives +17% dmg. I have a gold +30%Crit Value pet as well, which one should I use??? People tell me to use the dmg one but I'm not sure if it gives me the most dps I can get.

    Also, thanks for your help!
