wonder if this bow is good, got crazy min max dmg 40 ias


Nope, Good one should have at least 200/300 to max dmg affix. TU Reflex Bow is better than that craft


weirdchamp. everyone hyping over tu reflex bow without knowing tu long war bow is 2x better

also tu reflex is like 50-60 les damage than the craft (unless youre counting a couple mo's), but still not better than the craft

You don't actually have a max damage roll on that bow, it's a display bug - the min damage roll increases the display of small weird shrine damage to 1 more than it, when that doesn't actually happen before the damage line up at the top (if at all, for bows).


Min dmg on diablo decreasing your max and do less spread dmg between min max. That why on LOD u have grand charms 3 min dmg and GC 14 max :P Min dmg is simply greater. For example u got reflex bow 300 - 500 and u have bigger avarage dmg, but here on 320-320 u deal only one dmg :) Iam newbe on Median, just start a season maybe here mechanics different than LOD :P cheers

The mechanics are the same. You simply have a bow with +122 minimum damage and at most +12 maximum damage, which causes display bugs. If you actually had that +123 max damage then it would say 323 to 348 damage, not 323 to 324.

But you can roll a bow with up to +290 max damage (or better, 120 min and 290 max) and have significantly better average damage.

The problem with tu long war bow is the dex req. TU4 reflex bow has almost the same dex req and does more dmg as tu3 long war bow, meanwhile you need almost 2.5x as much dex for the tu4 long war bow, and that takes some time to get.

I understand this bow is meant to be as strong as it is, as its for tantrum progression into ubers and bow crafting but....
whats with the dex requirement? I wasn't able to make this tier 4 until lvl 120, including 4 honorific pieces with dex, socketed all amethysts in gear, mo'd dex on everything else possible, and even had about 40 sigs by that point + early charms. How is this bow even remotely possible to equip/validate 1357 dexterity by late act 5 normal/early act 1 nightmare level requirement?
[b]solution: fix the +requirements scaling as the tiers increase by doubling it each time, not skipping progression multiplications:
T1: +10% ----- T3: +20% ----- T3: +40% ----- T2: +80%
as opposed to
T1: +10% ----- T3: +40% ----- T3: +80% ----- T2: +150%
the way it currently is seems like a massive oversight from way back when items were shrunk from t6 down to t4, and somehow the t6 requirements made it onto tier 4 without a thought.

Sadly, I haven't seen Wolf for one year. I recently saw an anonymous vote on the author of the game guild. His vote was less, and I assumed the reason is left a period of time.
I can follow his game guild and am happy to pass all the level 130 bosses for the first time. I got a lot of achievements at 1.8 patches, and I helped some new players, and I miss that feeling.
Newcomers, many things are completely unknown, not is the newcomer is not willing to think through, and his game guild also let me have more understanding of SSF.
I miss you, wish you all the best, and hope you can make more and better game guilds near the future.
