    Demon Crossbow Faith?

    Everyone seems to want to make their faith in a GM, but there's two things which make this fairly undesirable:
    1- it's painfully disgustingly slow. Faith has no built in ias, so you need a lot of outside ias in order to make it not suck, and nobody ever gets enough.
    2-it's zon only. Should you ever feel like using it for something else amusing, you can't.

    Demon crossbows, on the other hand, have a base weapon speed of -60, meaning that the base speed will be about -90 once fana is factored in. My question, however, is how fast (fpa) could I get with a demon crossbow faith? I've heard that there are different speed breakpoints for crossbows than for bows (and that they can go faster) but I have yet to find an ias/fpa calc (like any of the calcs on dii.net have any way to navigate to them anyway) nor any documentation on it.

    the reason why people put it in a zon only bow is because of that +3 bow skill within the bow and the damage is higher for the zon only GMB. Also other class will only fire "normal arrows" when using Faith.

    X-bows have a limit of 11fpa, so there is no way you can reach better speeds than bows (even if it's a Demon Crossbow...).

    If you really want to make a x-bow Faith, Gorgon Crossbow (15ed) is probably the best choice.

    Faith demon xbow would be perfect for a WB Druid :D.
