    I think it does to much dmg and is to easy to achive.

    Ranged damage got a boost in last months but not due to the ranged skills alone but new stuff they added ingame (poisons, components and new weapons). Every little thing they add could hit the balance on combat. Having a weap with 30-40m range able to hit like this (picture added) is too much.

    @Chris take a look closely on crits like you guys did with polearms in the past plz.

    If you nerf the bow, please leave it in Offline so I have a chance at killing things like dragons and the other big things I cannot do in online unless I invest 1,000 more hours @Chris .

    Aw, c'mon. I finally get to damage stuff like the sword and polearm jerks and everyone wants it nerfed.

    (FWIW, I don't like it for dragons. I'd rather have the range of the crossbow.)

    Are you using the companions? Granted, I haven’t played much of Offline.

    Wow! How is it that every shot is a critical hit? That's massively OP.

    I do get more crits with it, but not like that. And I've only gotten really high ones a few times, with six stacks of aimed shot from behind. I don't think the bow is OP, I think Rada is OP. ;)

    Probably attacking from behind.

    Would probably also be relevant to see buffs, stats, gear, etc - to get the full picture.

    Attacking from behind no longer increases your critical chance. It only increases your damage based on the Backstab skill.

    Zena Is my friend so I think I can describe this.
    1) The only problem with this bow that it IS SO easy to get, bow with this power should be as hard to get as a Xen bow.
    2) Crit chance as you see does not relate to this bow, it can be achieved with ANY bow if you know what are you doing, and was made just for test. And this almost never works if you farm alone. Also it not work on high tier creatures like dragons or daemons in any case.
    3) He has maximum possible crit damage modifier and STR build. But by the fact the damage is even higher, this test was not made with max buffs.
    4) The main feature of this bow, same as Xen has - STR give more to damage then any crafted bow. But it has not got a huge focus cost penalty as Xen.

    I think Chris said it was a 1 in 5 chance but Envy Angel will likely go away next release.

    [edit] Remember when a supple leather suit would give you really good crit chance? Those were the days.... :)

    Hardly easy to get. Have to farm a boring fight for hours and only available 1 month a year.

    Many times easier if compare with a Xen, and power is pretty equal.

    Perhaps the answer would be to add a negative effect increasing its wear. Thus it becomes more of a seasonal glass bow type of thing.

    This. Seems like we playing 2 different games.

    Fire dmg is crazy, aoe and single both pve pvp. No wand decay LOL u damn basxxxrds.
    Spear is utterly broken with crazy dmg, multiply target and crazy range.

    Sword has huge utility, dots and finisher.

    Bows. You simply watch them and they loose durability. Now 2 ( TWO, ZWEI, DOS, DUE) bows in the game got a slighter buff from str and they post 10 hits to the dummy ( not 100, or 1000), 10 hits, T E N to ask the nerf.

    Do you realize that not everyone run a full str build?
    How many hours do you play per day to ask a nerf? Would you realize people isnt allowed to play 6hrs per day like you?

    Do 1000hits with Reported stats and crit chances/crit dmg and so on otherwise these are just casters whines.
    Devs should destroy ( D E S T R O Y) fire / meteor dmg, not the bow one.
    220 int and 230+ fire attunment and the game is easy mode and you claim bow is op.
    Are you triing to bias mathematic?
    But how could you solo UT and sell money RMT without that uber fire?
    Sadness like always
    Bad move hagger, very bad move

    I dont mind a bow beeing "op" but it should be hard to get like the xen bow. Killing a mob with 2k hp
    a few times to get a bow that is much more powerful than any crafted bow is weird imo. Other than that i think archery
    itself is in a good place with good single target dps and utility.
