How good are Hawkeye Bows?

I just want to know its pros and cons. I haven't really used it much, but the in-game info sounds good. Thanks in advance.

Pros: Good range, good shot speed, good shot cancellation.

Cons: Slow charge time, can't OHKO without energy charge, not very useful continuous fire.

Good Range, fast shots, Above Average Cancellation, OHKOs with EC when maxed, DCF has good homing.

Bad homing on everything else, weak melee, slow charge time, slow movement speed, small shots (making cancellation less useful)

Sounds like a good sniping bow. Would good mods be:

SR + 3
DCS + 4
Freezing+ 4

With all stars in ranged?

if you are going to OHKO (you should), freezing will be completely pointless.
I need a sharp instrument... or blunt, blunt is good, too.

Shot homing is more useful imo

I don't remember the homing being bad when I used to have a Hawkeye Bow set. It's not Angel Bow level of crazy, but if you're playing at the end of your range it's very easy to hit targets with compared to say a Darkness Bow or a Staff.

So, maybe along the lines of:


DCS + 3
SR + 3
RS + 4

As a side point, how much duration to powers would Effect Duration + 2 add?

Also, Blobs_, I would add SH to it, but it seems more like a cookiecutter set, and it's more of a sniping bow it seems, so I'd prefer range to homing.

And synchronized posting above. We deserve a medal.
