    Well, considering Windforce only has one variable stat, and the chance of a perfect Windy is 1/3, so getting a perfect Windforce isn't that hard (in terms of perfection rarity). But, in terms of rarity, congrats, it's a hard TC87 to find.

    It was the best bow for an Amazon until Faith came along, which let physical Amazons shoot faster. Shot for shot, it's still the most damaging bow in the game if you don't consider speed.

    PvM, if you can get a Faith, put it on a Rogue and use the Windforce - your damage will be crazy. If you can't afford a Faith and don't mind shooting a bit slower, Windforce is one heck of a powerful bow. Works great for MSzons, Strafezons, GAzons, and you can easily blow things in hell apart with a Windforce.

    I personally still really like Windforce just for its nostalgia value. It's still a megas good bow to use as a main weapon.

    man... i remember back in 1.08 and 1.09 when a WF was THE ultimate item. it used to go for 40 sojs, lol! But like written above, it is still very rare, yes, and very viable. All of the above makes it a great bow. Definite keeper.

    1.08 was one of my favourite patches, though it was very short-lived. 1.09 was still just as amazing though.
    08 Valors, Gazes, GFs, and whatever else have you.

    I wetted my pants a bit.
    Forgot how godly these things were.
    I just feel stupid letting all those chars with gear like this poof back in the day. Never considered what the value would be worth now.
