Don't always look at the number at the top. When you study any item, look at the whole thing.
Why this bow is OP?
1, Gain power charge. 40% increased Critical Strike Chance per Power Charge, by default you get 3 max charges. Most other method of gaining power charge is not convenient for Ranger to use, having this on weapon is a very large Quality of Life.
Plus, this is gain-on-crit, not gain-on-kill, which makes it easily sustainable even when fighting boss. This is like a built-in mini Power Charge on Kill gem...
2, 40% of physical as EXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXTRA cold damage. Still need explanation kah? 463pDPS already is very high, you get another 185eDPS with this mod, making it total 648DPS bow <- this is just theoretically for easy understanding
3, 20% chance of DOUBLE DAMAGE
. No need explain liao lah...The thing is, I dunno how is this 2x damage calculated. Is it at early stage, or double the final dps?
If early stage, you're looking at a 1296dps bow, for easy understanding...
Let say an average bow build attack 5 times per second, it is sure to trigger once or twice per second...
Why Harbinger? Because it got very high BASE CRIT can go over 9%, higher than any other bow. Perfect for crit build, if you can afford a good crafted one.If you want to craft an end-game bow, always go for a Harbinger with 50% crit chance implicit.
Sure, it don't have +2 arrow like those unique items, but people that can afford this crazy bow will already have a quiver that does +2 arrow. Among other source of additional arrows.
You don't really need a lot of arrows for boss killing anyway....This post has been edited by digitalifelesss: Yesterday, 02:47 PM
