1h xbows can have +max discipline. That's one of the main reasons two 1h xbows can be the best possible, because you can get more discipline than any other build.
uh crap.. you necro'd a May 31 thread, and made me type all this >__>
FML I'll post it anyway
"This info used to be true until specifically DMLs/quiver buffs came out. Manticore and Calamity are both good, but dual wielding just can't beat having a DML because:
20% aspd quiver > 15% aspd (dual wield bonus)
10 DISC quiver = 10 disc bow
200 dex quiver = 200 dex bow
Hatred regen quiver = Hatred regen bow
The tradeoff is:
+14% DAMAGE (hungering/bola/or reduced resource)
(If no 10 max Discipline, this becomes 300+ DEX & 300+ VIT instead of 200/200)
+200% CD <-- This is the only thing that a quiver doesn't have
Now take a look at the best calamities on the auction house. Calamity only has ONE free property (i.e. NO DEX, NO VIT, NO DISC). You will definitely want a socket
Your new tradeoff for the --best bow on the current market-- becomes:
+14% damage potential (hungering/bola/or reduced resource as well)
yeah, which one does more damage?
just found a 1200 calamity with dex and 90% crit on it. donno if its will do more damage than my manticore if i picked up another 1000 handxbow with crit and socket.
12/27/2014 10:30 AMPosted by MaxSouthI am surprised at all those attempts to decide which way is better and calculate the damage using speed and modifier -- Diablo 3 game does it much more accurately than any of us.
So if your set of two hand crossbows gives you more calculated damage than set of one hand crossbow and a quiver, the choose the former -- unless you care specific features.
