    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.

    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: https://prnt.sc/q7j5mx

    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: https://prnt.sc/q7j6hz
    Helmet 2: https://prnt.sc/q7j6o8

    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.
    Necklace: https://prnt.sc/q7j70r
    Belt: https://prnt.sc/q7j76s
    Lehein's Ring: https://prnt.sc/q7j7eu
    Dragan's ring: https://prnt.sc/q7j7m3
    Arrows: https://prnt.sc/q7j7ty
    Weapon: https://prnt.sc/q7j7y0
    Boots: Unenchanted
    Gloves: https://prnt.sc/q7j883
    Armor: https://prnt.sc/q7j8kk
    Pauldrons: Unenchanted
    Helmet: https://prnt.sc/q7j8rd

    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!

    Thanks for the nudge :]
    Though I decided not to go for it. Maybe I'll do a radical rebuild when new level cap drops...

    Speaking of which, guys, what if I threw all my platinum exo crap away to finally have a nice empty bag? Won't platinum enchantments become just as obsolete as gold ones sooner or later? The work bench hates me, so I'm never gonna craft anything good; and if I maybe do, a new expansion drops a minute later with all kinds of changes so I can ditch it anyway, right?
    Platinums have been a pretty effective carrot on a stick for a whole year that I've actually begun to hate so much. They clog up my bag, they cost too much gold to transfer, they just p**s me off.

    Hey guys, I need some advice. Recently I managed to craft a little better dmg belt and thought about upgrading my stats. Thing is, I’m not quite sure which uni belt I should use now. So, in the picture you can see all the “presentable” belts I have, together with the one I’m currently wearing. [​IMG]
    . As you see, there’s nothing special about them, but they are the best items I could get (my ranger is unlucky with drop, not to mention the craft…). As for cores, I have sufficient amount to tier up.

    Here are my stats without buffs/pet/essence.
    So which one should I choose? I play alone :'( usually on fatal or inf1-3 (depends what I need).

    @Iselda Maybe I'm thinking about this in a wrong way, but I'm usually focusing only on certain base values in items. These are the ones that can get further enhanced by runes.
    So in case of belts I would aim to get the highest possible resistance base line. Everything else is not that important to me.

    Your Zeal belt and the bottom right Witch belt both have the same resistance line, but the Witch belt has the rest of the lines better. Also, it's T6 already, so if you don't fancy the stacked bonuses on the Zeal belt too much, I would pick the bottom right Witch belt.
    However, it also depends if you have other parts of the set. The belt on its own is not so cool, right?

    But as you already have a decent belt that you are using (91% res. line), I'm not even sure if you should start using another one. Your stats are already pretty awesome.
    If I were you, I would probably try to use some equipment refiners on the disposable belts and/or wait for top of the line drops ;D

    For me, belt of zeal is better. Full stacked you can get 20% min and max damage, while 3/3 Kara only grants you 22% max damage. On the other hand, Kara bonus is permanent.

    But here's the thing, with belt of zeal and 2 Kara items you're having more attack speed and travel speed. The thing is up to you, both are good and you already have a powerful character, as @Akageshi pointed, but still I recommend to you the zeal combination.

    I'm actually using the q4 belt mainly as a relic from the time I was the Tormentor guy... Then there came the period when we were all depressed about draken cores not dropping enough, so I was happy my guy was only using 3 pieces of Dragan to waste my draken cores on :D

    And currently I'm anxious because we know there will be the content expansion this year and we have no idea what that is going to do with our builds. Personally I'm not going to transfer anything and probably not going to buy any piece of gear (from e.g. Gnob) either. I'm even anxious about trying to craft platinum legends, because who knows what's gonna happen in a few months :/

    Well as you know I am no ranger at all
    and as you know I like the ghost bow
    so just entertain this for a second as I know nothing about rangers
