    Faith bow type question

    i recently found a 4soc +3bow skill matriarchal bow and i was wondering if i should go buy a grand matron bow or just make it in the one i found.
    whats the damage difference if both bows had same lvl fana.
    and i heard matriarchal is faster than gmb...is this true?

    Matriarchal bow is faster but does less damage.Grand Matron does more damage but is a little slower.
    Most go with Grand Matron for the damage and just use equipment with IAS to make up the difference.as long as you get 86% IAS,you ll hit the last speed breakpoint.

    It's more complicated than that, you have to figure out the attack speed of the bow with a certain level Fanat that can spawn on Faith, how much damage it will be in each bow, as well as any IAS gear that the merc is wearing, and then you have to convert to damage per second.

    The OP was asking about a MERC Faith so all that doesnt matter at all.

    Not really. Mercs take IAS into account, too.

    It won't matter as MUCH, but if you want to squeeze every last bit of damage out of her, then by all means it does.
