    CTA Bow??

    Found a nice 5 soc GM Bow +3 bow skills
    can you CTA it??
    I have a Dexazon that never uses wep switch, it might be kewl to have a BOW CTA on wep switch for the BO. CTA recipie sez "5 soc weapons" dosent say melee or such.

    Anyone know 4 sure?

    I do it in a matriarchal bow, not a matron bow (since it's faster). the +3 bow skills is good though because it really pumps up freezing arrow. However, if you don't use freezing arrow, then it's not very good - botd crusader/wf is better.

    I use a BotD Superior (+15% ED) Hydra 414% ED//15% LL and dont really need the CTA for anything but Battle Orders, I was just wondering if you can CTA a Bow=)

    you can, but i think i'd use a berserker axe or phase blade for tradability.

    Or a Flail, as most people only keep it for BO and don't use it as a weapon. Plus that would be a waste of a 5 socket Berserker Axe IMO.

    If you CTA a bow (2-handed weapon), you lose +1 potential to BO because people with one handed CTA weapons will use a lidless wall for an additional +1 to bo.

    you can get a possible +9 by my calcs if you use battle command from cta, battle orders +6, +1 from the cta itself, +1 from a shield.

    the bow alone will give +8. not too shabby.

    seems like a waste though if you aren't using it for fighting. you can get +4 to one of your trees as mentioned earlier with a good inherent roll on a zon bow.

    not worth it to use in a 2 handed weapon, it devalues the cta by a lot
