    Buriza or Lycander's for mid-game?

    I am asking a lot of questions lately, I hope you guys don't mind.

    I was wandering wich weapon would be the best for mid-game:

    Buriza-Do Kyanon
    Ballista
    Two-Hand Damage: 94 to 157
    Required Dexterity: 80
    Required Strength: 110
    Required Level: 41
    Crossbow Class - Fastest Attack Speed
    Item Version: 1.10 Expansion
    Item Level: 59
    Fingerprint: 0xdef1947b
    +35 to Dexterity
    +186% Enhanced Damage
    +143 Defense
    Adds 32-196 cold damage over 8 seconds
    80% Increased Attack Speed
    Freezes Target +3
    Piercing Attack [100]
    +2 to Maximum Damage (Based on Character Level)

    Lycander's Aim
    Ceremonial Bow
    Two-Hand Damage: 79 to 167
    (Amazon Only)
    Required Dexterity: 110
    Required Strength: 73
    Required Level: 42
    Bow Class - Fast Attack Speed
    Item Version: 1.10 Expansion
    Item Level: 59
    Fingerprint: 0x5fb3830f
    +20 to Energy
    +20 to Dexterity
    +20% Enhanced Defense
    +186% Enhanced Damage
    +25 to Minimum Damage
    +50 to Maximum Damage
    6% Mana stolen per hit
    +2 to Amazon Skill Levels
    20% Increased Attack Speed
    +2 to Bow and Crossbow Skills (Amazon Only)

    The Buriza does more damage and has better mods, but it is much easier to get a better breakpoint with a lycander's, right?

    What do you guys think?

    i would go with the buriza, altough the lycanders is easier to hit some bp's with the buriza does insane damage for mid-lvls... and with the dex bonus cobined with the cold damage // freeze effect, i would take this blizz canon anyday above a lycanders

    why dont you test them out ? so u can see which u like best and base your choice on that...

    I sugguest Buriza if you are going Multi, Lycanders if you are going Strafe. I noticed a substantial difference between the two when Strafing. Faster attack=less time in Strafe Lock.

    I'd go with the Buriza, it isn't much slower than Lycander's anyway.

    But try them both and make up your mind as to which you prefer.

    I noticed a huge difference when using Strafe. With Multi, you just mow the enemy down anyway with either bow.

    The Burri can go take you thru the game with any bowazon build, but not Lycanders. It has some limits, but its a great bow for sertain builds!

    Burri is just pure power . . .

    burry can easily take you thru the whole game, it have some insane dmg

    but i´d prefer using lycanders for some odd reason :)

    both bows are good and should make it easy for you to kill

    Thanks for the replys guys.

    I was leaning to the Buriza before I asked the question. I just wanted to know what you guys thought.

    As Moog noted it kinda depends on your attack skill. If you are using Freezing Arrow then Buriza is nice for the Cold Damage and extending the freeze time along with more pierce (which is capped at 95%, even if you get 100%+). If you are a speed based Zon then Lycander's (Strafe/Multi).
