    what do you mean % to ed doesn't work?

    it would be a very nice bow if ias was included...i would only consider wrath in a -10 bow

    Yeah I've been looking into wrath as well, but this seems a rather weak runeword to invest runes into.

    First of all, it doesn't have any enhanced damage, so that means any off weapon %ed(or from auras) will have substantially lower effect on total damage done(since it's adding to your base bow damage only).

    Also the bow has two totally different CTC's included, and they negate each other. It would be rather annoying to have a tough monster decrepifyed, and at some point, life tap kicks in and kills the other curse, causing your damage to drop substantially. I'd much rather have only 30% decrepify on the bow.

    And as already mentioned above, the bow has no ias whatsoever, so that makes it more difficult to reach good speeds while maintaining good equipment.

    Get Faith instead.

    The ed% to undead on Sanctuary doesn't work. The +% dmg to undead found on items works just fine.

    Yeah, I really wish that this bow had some Ias or ed%. Or even just monster elemental dmg attched to it. Pretty worthlees IMHO. Especially considering that for the same price you could have ICE or Faith. maybe this would be good on a Rogue merc to knockout Phys Immunes, but once again the Life tap could kick in and override the Decrep. Weird bow. I'd rather have ICE or Faith or even Harmony.

    I'm fairly certain that someone on the bnet forums designed and is making a PvP Slow zon based around this bow. I don't know much more, but figured I could mention that. It seems to be working well for him, and he generally knows what he's doing.

    Another worthless runeword for its cost from blizzard.

    Much like "wind" which blows (gogo pun)
