    Or should one use Matri/Gm with +3 skills one?

    Feel free to put your 0.02 here.

    I would stick it in a Crusader bow, same average damage as Hydra w/ lower req. You also get style points! :)

    The best platform to make a Faith in is Grand Matron Bow with 3 skills.

    I, personally, like it in a -10 base speed bow. Then you only need 45% ias to reach the last breakpoint. (This lets me do things like wear a 'dream' helm.)

    If you want big dmg: +3 GMB (strafe/GA for PvM)
    If you want big speed: +3 Mat (Multi)

    Just my $.02...

    Has anyone ever tried making a faith in a Shadow Bow? I still say that dream is useless for a bowa :confused: .

    Edit: You could also try a diamond bow if you like steady dmg.

    is it true that it's easier to reach 7fps if u have a lvl 15 fana on the grand matron?

    No. With auras 13-15 you need 95% ias, with aura 12 you need 100% ias.

    Well in my opinion its better on a matriarchal bow, because you get a lot more equipment flexibility which will benefit you a lot, however im aware most ppl think that gmb is better. So i suppose its just a matter of what are you going to wear.

    the problem with GMB/Matri is that it's amazon only...
    I mean, if i had the funds to make such a runeword, due to its high price, i would make it in a non-class-specific item so i could use it on my hunters/rangers/whatever as well.
    (I'd personally make it out of a diamond bow, since i love high min dmg, but then it would get almost worthless to most ppl, so it wouldn't be tradeable)

    But that's really a matter of taste.
