    Whats speed rating for Hydra Bow

    I recently started what is going to be a speedazon and I made a upgraded goldstrike. I need to know how many IAS i would need to hit a good breakpoint

    hydra bow is a base 10 speed bow. I invite you to look at the Amazon FAQ (listed in the Just the FAQ's Ma'am pull-down menu at the top left of the page) for all the breakpoints.

    you need 147%ias altogether to hit the 8fps breakpoint ( fastest possible with a hydra,crusader & grand matron bow's ).

    with the 50%ias on goldstrike itself, you need an additional 97%ias to hit 8fps. hope this helps

    peace.

    fastest possible for base 10 is 7fpa, with 292% ias ;)

    of course... it's only possible on open... :drool:

    If you are strafing a good breakpoint is the 9/2 one which comes with 120 IAS as that gives the fastest strafe rate. Going to 147 IAS only increases the speed of your normal arrows to give a 8/2 strafe. That is hardly worthwhile with a goldstrike since the time to fire a full 10 arrow strafe is 9 + 9 *2 = 27 frames for 9/2 and only 1 frame less for 8 /2 (= +4%). But if you were using Multishot or FA the increase from 9 to 8 frames is a big 12.5% increase in firepower.
