bows get good at lvl 18. At lvl 18 u can also use ur first decent 1. Bowazons don't need to use bows early, I switched in act IV. At lvl 14, u can get by on a decent melee weapon. Quest stuff works well (hammer/flail).
I have decided to close this thread since roby has been banned for swearing and making a second account after his first was banned.
Just a friendly reminder to everyone that we do have a word filter. Going around the word filter is against the rules. Making a second account after having your first banned is not a good idea. If you are banned, e-mail the mod asking for an explanation. If you think the ban is in error, write back with an explanation as to why. It is possible to reverse a ban. Don't make a second account thinking you will not be found. You will. If your ban was temporary, doing that will simply make it permanent.
