Bow

From Path of Exile Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Bows are a two-handed ranged weapon class requiring dexterity to equip. Quivers may be equipped with bows to provide additional bonuses. Bows generally do not have implicit modifiers, although a few exceptions exist. Bows have low base critical strike chance but moderate physical damage and attack speed, resulting in overall higher damage per second than wands.

The non-monotonuos increase in dps over the level of the items is relativated by the fact that higher level (drop-level) bows receive a bigger bonus from quality, resulting in more monotonous dps increase.
