    Is guides arrow worth it?

    Ok well i like amazon build and mostly bowazons but me i have always put atleast 10 points or maxing guided arrow. But is it really worth the extra points for that extra damage? Because once i tried a zon with just Guided magic arrow and strafe and it was pretty fun but once again was guided arrow really worth it?

    Guided arrow has fallen far since 1.09. It no longer pierces multiple times as it did (Burrito guide anyone). IMHO it is now a one point wonder, maybe useful for PvP, but limited in use PvM.

    In PvP, it is still really good... for PvM, I'm not so sure.

    Ok i decided not to make a new thread because it's kind of related, ok do skills on bow's stack up like on a ravenclaw will those explosive arrows stack on to my explosives or magic arrows like on a wizendraw?

    as far as i know they dont, the 'fires xxx arrows' is only applyed to normal attacks with the bow or correct me if im wrong here strafe, so when fireing the explosive arrows your skill lvl counts and the bows dosnt get activated. (plz if im wrong someone correct me)

    If the bow says "fires XXX arrow" then, no, it does not stack with your skills points.

    @Deaddave - the "fires XXX arrow" only happens when you use a normal attack and does not work with Strafe, Multi, or any bow skill. And yes, if you use a bow skill it overrides the "fires XXX arrow."
