MM8 GM bow isdue

Postby Jacko » Jan 21 2016, 18:50

This is what happened to me back in the day when trying a solo dark elf:

I got GM Bow lvl 10 + 12 from Items (Bow, Gloves) but this +12 bonus has absolutely no effect on the damage.
When I put skill points into Bow skill the dmg increases just like the Skill says.

This is absolutely unacceptable having to miss this +12 bonus - it is simply huge, yet it does not work.

Have u ever met with such issue?

Is there a fux for that?

Maybe bonus to bow accuracy? There is no bonuses to skill points. :-)
And only one biggest bonus is added. No cumulations.

Fleeetfingers gloves give +8bonus to Bow skil.

U can see this bonus when u click on the Bow skill description yet it doesnt affect dmg figure in your attack and dmg window.

otoh crown of final doninion also gives a bonus to skill dark magic the bonus is listed and it is valculated.

You can install Grayface's most recent path(V2.0) to fix this issue.
Fleetfingers,longseeker,bow of tornament,these 3 artifacts can now work correctly in bow skill bonus.

Holy cow, did he really fix it? I saw no mention of it in the changelog :(

Update: I just tried the game after installing the new update and no, it still doesn't work. My elf does 25-30 damage with the Tournament Bow at Grandmaster 10. If the formula took into account the bonus to the Bow skill, the damage would be 30-35.

Get the Devilbone Bow and it won't matter. That's how I did solo elf. Carnage your way through almost everything.

I think the real name is Noblebone Bow. Just make sure you have an alternate bow for fire elementals and gogs.

Around 110. Elves can't do much with learning so I didn't bother. Just make sure to do the master bounty hunter quest. Once you reach 70000 you get 1.2M xp.

Swords. Armsmaster is ok but not top priority. Bow was around 30. Basically at high levels all you can dump points into are bow and Dark Elf skill for Darkfire. Darkfire is a really nice burst spell for when things get close, but costs a ton of mana.

Right - noblebone bow.

and i wanted completely disregard dark elf ability. Ok i will have to give him a try once done with mm6.

byw my lich with learning was 120ish so there isnt much o a difference in levels. Or maybe 130ish.

so bow to 30ish and maybe darkelf will be in its 20s.

Bow + Darkfire really make Dark Elves amazing. It just would have been so nice to receive the damage perk from bonuses to GM Bow.

Also, daggers are for pussays - give your Dark Elf Elsenrail + Glomenthal. Being able to dual wield swords makes using daggers an extreme waste. Even though it's the civil thing to do in Alvarian customs :P
