Of Feeding Thineself
I still don't see why people don't use a crystal bow. Is it because of the recharge?
The damned weapon has greater damage than Rune Arrows no matter the charge, it has range longer than anything else. It's also 4 times faster than the Dark Bow. Fully charged, it beats out the Dark Bow and Rune Crossbow. Only at 2/10 does the Magic Shortbow with Rune Arrows match up to it.
I like to think most people are simply afraid of the initial recharging costs to get it. So was I until I tested it out. The experience from it isn't cheap. Only slightly cheaper than rune arrows. Fortuitously, the bow came along just as I was planning a trip to the Fight Caves.
The last time I attempted it, I had 68 Ranged and hoped I could get it. 70 Ranged passed and went. Now a friend of mine with significantly lower stats got it right so I'll see if I can pull it off via the Power of Jealousy.
I figured if I went all Ranged with a Crystal Bow and Rune Crossbow, I might make it to beat up that pile of rock at the end.
I've also taken to lending my Godsword to people. 30k per hour. It's probably the cheapest out there. I need more junk.
Thought for the day:
The good excel. The great excel even in death.
