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
Two-Hand Damage: 94 to 157
Required Dexterity: 80
Required Strength: 110
Required Level: 41

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

Lycander's Aim

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

+20 to Dexterity

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).
