    Dude you seriously don't understand the ranger class and miscalculating things up :)
    So you would not use cooldown runes, you would not use concentration reductions, you would not use concentration buffs ... etc.
    So how many shots can you fire with your buster build? 2 a year?
    What is better?
    2 shots in 10 seconds under 50K base damage or 10 shots in 10 seconds under 40K damage?
    I can spam EA forever on longbow.
    Also ... you get more damage applied over 22% weapon damage since those are flexible set parts unlike the buster crap ... which you have to wear 5 items on.

    as for coalescence jewels I already told you

    before I did those calcs i asked a friend what he needs cdr runes for he said EA doesnt need it
    however I agree conc reduction runes are needed for sure.
    As for this I excluded witch seeker pouldrons by accident btw
    and yes 22% weapon damage is good especially on reds
    Added didnt they change the xmas stars to boots in the end?
    meaning you can still use the dmg runes on your helmet
    and btw that 1733 damage is before relative damage is added example djbarmans damage went up a decent 16k?
    however added he probably crafted his cloak with max damage x4
    and speaking of which
    I looked a while ago and since the min and max damage on 1h is so good you can definitely craft a cloak with max damage to boost you damage a lot <- ik it changes the variables and is not wow, however it goes close to the damage range of a 2h item which is not that bad xD

    Apparently your friend is a hoax-ranger using Q7 set :)
    Rangers need concentration to shoot EA ... concentration doesn't generate on its own.
    In order to replenish concentration ranger need to either kill monsters with DB or use Adrenaline.
    Personally, i am relying on ways that are not dependent on luck or chance ... so I need Adrenaline. Together with Sigrismarr torso it is a perfect combination. I also need low cooldown on Bird of Prey too.
    They were changed only once ... made usable in boots instead of helmet.
    The later change was only mod to the effect values.
    5 jewels are going to gloves 100% ... the other 5 you can use them in Helmet but you will have a low HP and HP regeneration ... OR you can use them in boots to get similar effect as with gloves but you would be slow as hell.
    Isn't that what I said? :D
    I don't know about DJBarman ... i only know my current damage is around 40K
    - without a single platinum line (still using all old items)
    - without using coalescence jewels in boots
    - without new crafted cloak (still using white spider cloak - not crafted)
    - without damage buffs from items like zeal, karabossa etc.
    Imagine what would the damage boost be if I had proper longbow (which is nonexistent ATM) and all those platinum crafted items and new cloak.
    And of course I am using a longbow without unique enchantment ... If I switch to Gwenfara's shortbow the damage would be much higher but that is not an option for me.
    All in all ... buster items suck for Q7 users and for all players who are using 1H build. It means it is useless pretty much for every ranger except beginners.

    I repeatedly asked them to add a belt enabling 6 pieces and a weapon giving it 300% damage, which kinda would have been cool even on 1h
    As you can see it never happened...

    Why don't you use the q7 set :)
    Your build is completely q7 but you are using gwenfara's items instead of the Hoaxbow. That is not a correct setup for a 1H build :p

    Anyway ... we made a video last night, playing Wendigo. DK Dzungla + Ranger
    My shield is actually only a skin , it is a quiver actually ... up in the face of q7 hoaxbowers because they can't have such skin XD
    No pots used.

    So you're built around the Alliance bow. Are there any other longbows left in the game? I can only think of the Wolf Slayer bow and Lehaine's Lost Bow, both faster, but with lower base damage. And the Alliance bow has no special abilities.

    Also, I don't understand where you get damage from on a 1h build. There are no items that grant 1h damage bonus, are there?

    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?
  17. 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?

    Gnob had a temporary offer in his shop last month.
    This was the offer and the prices
