2 Questions

Hey, just 2 quick questions here:

1: Currently, i am using Cliffkiller on my amazone (lvl43-using strafe), but i keep reading people devoting they ama's to Witchwild strings... why? and what should i insert in the 2 sockets?

2: I found a Gheed's here the other day on a MF run, but remembering that I can only carry one in my inventory, does that mean that I cannot find another one, or does it only count as it says, with only 1 in inventory.

I suggest looking around the Amazon Forum. There should be a comparison of WWS with other bows. It should lose to a Windforce and Faith, but not much else. Most people upgrade it to a Diamond bow. This gives ok average damage with a tight range. The deadly strike property hitting nearly all the time frees up any need to put points in cs or get any other ds gear. The amp damage will further increase damage, especially if you're strafing and have double shael'ed the bow. On top of that, you get 40 resists, which makes up for a lack of shield when wielding a bow.

So I could simply stay in the game 30min or so and then enter with another char, picking it up?

thanks for the description of WWS, i'll look into it.

Yup. 5 minutes is the point at which the game should stay while noone is in it. Also, I recommend dropping your current gheeds, comparing the two, and putting the better one on your current character, just in case.

WitchWild String is popular because of its chance to cast amp damage, 2 socks, and +40% reisit all and some other mods. Its a sweet bow and even better upped.
