    Bow choice for weapon switch ... ?

    The two that im choosing between is up'ed witchwild string and widowmaker .... any suggestions ... them damn IM guys in worldstone keep pissing me off.

    Witchwild string has ... amp + massive deadly strike and lvl 20 magic arrows :surprise: and resist and 2 sockets .... which do you think would be better? This is for a zealot weapon switch for them IM bastards btw.

    Best bows in the game for a paladin (PvM) are in order:

    1. Windforce (w/ 50% DS)
    2. Eaglehorn (w/ 50% DS)
    3. Widowmaker (w/ 80% DS)
    4. Upgraded Witchwild, not socketed (w/ 100% DS)

    Eaglehorn is the best in PvP because of the huge AR boost.

    Thing is im really only using this for oblivion knight b/c IM is only thing that really kills me ... so im thinking the guided arrow would be best ... just so I can shoot them ... then go back to my zealot form.

    Voice,

    What aura do you plan on using? What kind of zealot are you(Frost, Shock, Fana, etc)?
    I will assume you are the typical fana zealot so I would say go with the Widowmaker. The Witchwild is also a very nice choice and when upgraded and socketed with say a 40/15 or shael...very very nice. But I guess it's which you have and your gear setup.

    I believe GA is ITD in duels, no AR...

    My Zealot has Widowmaker on switch and is very useful against runners, casters, WW barbs and other such things. If its a caster and it doesnt Teleport... it gets guided arrows.

    You should see the amount of "PALLY IS HACKED! GUIDED ARROWZ!" I get sometimes. :lol:

    Widowmaker def for PvP. PvM... hmmm

    Never exp. that my self. I know for a fact that isnt try in pvsp. But your not talking about pvsp. I never paided much attention to how well I hit monsters with GA tho. But I swear up and down I never seen a miss.
