    Which bow for BOTD?

    If one were wealthy and bored and were going to waste the BOTD runewords in a bow. Which bow would be best? Hydra or Crusader?
    Yes, I know a WF does much more physical damage.
    :D
    Thanks for your time!

    Since it's a matter of opinion (they both average the same damage, and are the same speed), my vote is for Crusader. More consistant damage (not as big of a hi/lo spread), and the requirements are WAY less...meaning you can invest those statpoints elsewhere.

    ..can only have 5 sockets. And I don't think it's really a matter of opinion - Crusader is best. Though not that much better.

    Grand matrons can only have 5 sockets... didn't know that, but according to arreat summit, it's right...

    why'd they nerf it down to 5?

    They always had 5. I remember some talk about it being a bug, and it would be fixed in 1.1, but checking it out have not crossed my mind..

    Sweet, thanks everyone. I was going to make this bow for my new 1.10 mf zon, but the info I am getting in the zon forum isnt very good for pure bowas... I might just go with a WF after all.
    But thank you for your help!
    And ty Gosu :)
