I think OP wants to buy a calamity ... or sell his manti... or both.

so..... you are out in the field ..... you have a small mobile target ahead of you. Do you bring in the tank for 1-shot and re-charge or get up on your gun turret and fire the 50mm gun at 'em.

while hungering can have its auto-tracking the slowness doesn't make it the greatest weapon in PvP. Each bow has their advantages and disadvantages.

those who build their calamity builds on high asi vs cd manti builds well.... you are pretty much guaranteed to double your shot output.

For those with dodge some will connect some won't. You may not 1-shot higher ehp players and that is OK. throw up some sentries that are shooting fast as well. Then see which is connecting more per second than the other.

Manti is a great weapon but certainly not gonna call it "OP" in PvP at this point.

Personally if you aren't kiting offscreen and have targets close enough I think evasive fire is better way to go... pretty much instant hits. And especially playing 4 FFA you should have multiple targets close enough where evasive fire:covering will do a decent job.

Add onto that calamity shooting 3 APS that is 9 shots per second going out against multiple targets. Might be a good alternative. It is only theory. I have been in PTR but have not been in PvP as of yet. I may this weekend go into PvP with my DPS build and tank build and see how things go.

If you think AH prices are going to be governed by PVP, I have some bad news for you: PVP is an afterthought in this game.

Calamity is the no. 1 choice for 3 types of users. Dual welding, 1 hand welding with shield and 1 hand welding with quiver, so the demand is unlikely to drop too much. It is way too early to judge if prices will drop based on PTR PVP. Furthermore not everyone enjoys a rewardless type of PVP

Did anyone tested new ruby on both? It seems that calamity takes godly improvement from it... can someone confirm?

Interesting, I might try that out, need to farm for the gem plan tho. Makes sense the Calamity would benefit from it more than a Manti since The calamity has a wider Average damage Gap. I will give it try when I get a chance.

Under no circumstances will a Calamity ever be the best for PvP. Watch the prices tumble.

You seem to think that when PVP comes out, thats all that there will be. There's more to the game than PVP.

im thinking duel wielding is going to make a comeback. Picture a black weapon with a ruby in your main hand and a high crit/emerald in the offhand.

Holy crap lol! That's a huge boost almost 2K this might actually bring back dual wielding.

Haven't played PVP yet, but would Multishot be a better idea as they just cant dodge them all?

dude is right.

PVP is the backburner "I'm bored of Alkalizers, so I'll go kill some players" fall back plan now. Calamity will still be top for high end MP players who like to face tank and permagloom.
