Depends. For personal use, I haven't worried too much about final durability, if I get the stats I want. But I usually buy my bows from others, and I don't want to spend a bunch of gold on something with really low durability. Also, I find items with low durability don't really sell, unless I sell them for next to nothing. To be fair, though, it also may not be as bad now. With the odds of getting the stats I want being higher, blowing through a few hundred beetles and actually getting the gear I want might make all the difference in the world.
