Advice Needed: Magic Bowman's Band for Magick Archers

#1Akatsuki-KikumiPosted 7/7/2013 2:20:14 AM
Magic Bowman's Band, obtained from Bitterblack Gear Lv.3, can enhance any two of the following weapon skills:

Threefold Bolt / Sixfold Bolt
Explosive Bolt / Explosive Rivet
Magickal Flare / Magickal Gleam

For those of you who play the MA vocation, which of the combinations on the band do you find the most useful?

I am leaning towards (Threefold Bolt / Sixfold Bolt) and (Explosive Bolt / Explosive Rivet) combo because those two are of opposite elements. Therefore, creatures that are immune to ice-elemental attacks (Frostwyrm, for instance) will take damage from Explosive Rivet which is fire-based.

But if this is a poor choice, I would like to hear about it.

The magickal gleam one doesn't really do much, just increases the duration. I have a band with sixfold and MG and have stopped using magickal gleam. I only had it to stun maneaters. Also I used it to light up the helixes, and to maybe hurt the wraiths if I actually hit them with it.

360: same as above.

Definitely boost sixfold/explosive rivet.

Alright. Then I will go with Sixfold + Explosive Bolt. Thanks.
