    Question for zon's merc

    I am currently working on my windforce amazon with a faith merc. I have two different bows that I might use and was wondering the pros and cons of each bow and what would be the best choice.

    The bows are a 14ed diamond bow and a 4os great bow.

    Thanks

    If the Diamond bow doesnt have 4sox now, you cant use it for Faith as it gets 5sox from Larzuk.
    If it already has 4sox, then I still would go for the Great Bow, because its faster.

    Depends on mercs other gear. I use both great and diamond bows on different characters. I got real lucky this ladder and rolled a 15/2/345 great, and a 15/2/344 diamond. My setups are;

    1. great bow - fortitude armor - Mavina hat with a max damage jewel = 9 frame attack

    2. diamond bow - fortitude armor - Andy hat with 30 fire res/min/max jewel = 10 frame attack

    Both of these setups are fun and merc survival is about equal but require a minimum level 14 fana roll to achieve the speed break.

    To me merc damage is secondary to the fana roll, which affects the speed and damage of your Windforce.
