    Found Eaglehorn! Now what?

    Hi guys! I need some advice. Yesterday on a Baal run I found my first ever Eaglehorn! :clap:

    Well, I was very happy because my Strafezon is just on the way through nightmare and she will need a good bow for hell, right?!

    Now the problem is: I gave her a Lycander's aim and planned on upgrading it before going to hell. And when I looked at my ne Eagle I thought: Hmm, well a nice little bow... but would it be better than an upgraded Lycander's?? :scratch:

    Eagle has definitely the better max damage but all those other nice properties on Lycander are nothing to sneeze at. On the other side I REALLY want to USE that Eagle...

    So what would you think would be the better bow for a strafezon?

    nope, no hybrid.. pure bowazon.
    yes, I'll probably end up trying both. as I know myself, I'll build another zon for the eagle (multizon maybe?) when I decide to go with lycander on my current zon.

    btw: thanx for the stats. looks yummy! :)

    hehe when i was a nub on bnet and had my burrizon that could actually hurt those cows, i was so happy when i found eagle. Thought it was the best bow in the game and then when i saw that i had more dmg with burri i was sooooo disapointed....

    eagle is a nice bow!! I don´t know if it´s better than upgraded lycanders though...

    I've heard that an upgraded Lycander's isn't all too impressive, but it has nice mods on it. With Eaglehorn you're getting a lot more damage and I think a little less speed and no mana leech. I would try them both and see what gets you the best results.

    Keep Lycander´s Aim and give Eaglehorn to your mercenary (if it is a rogue, that is) :D

    Upgraded Riphook. I upgraded one and am going to use it on my Sniperzon variant. Here are the stats on it, if you'd care to look.

    Riphook
    Blade Bow

    Two-Hand Damage: 66 to 129
    Required Dexterity: 119
    Required Strength: 76
    Required Level: 52
    Bow Class - Very Fast Attack Speed
    Item Version: 1.10 Expansion
    Item Level: 49
    Fingerprint: 0xce6163a2
    +35 to Mana
    +217% Enhanced Damage
    10% Life stolen per hit
    Required Level +7
    30% Increased Attack Speed
    30% Chance of Open Wounds
    Slows Target by 30%

    Nice mods, LL, Open wounds, and slows target. I'm really looking forward to working with this.

    that might be nice to have on a weapon switch in conjunction with a lot of crushing blow - because of its speed - but i think you will find that the damage is not as much as you might like once you get to hell.

    regarding the lyc or eaglehorn... i'd use the eagle until you run out of mana, switch to the lyc to refill, then switch back. that way you use both! :D

    Upgraded Lycander's Aim would have to be one of the best bows for a Freezing/Immolation Arrow zon. Either that or a Call To Arms mat. bow...

    Riphook is a great weapon too.
