Wicked Rare...

*Warning this is a double post, the original is at The Amazon Basin.*
I love Bowazons.

EVERY time ('been playing for four years) I see a yellow bow drop, I get a little excited. No matter what kind it is I pick it up and identify it right away. I always pause for a second after I've right-clicked on the tome of identify. With my ?-cursor hanging in the air, over the unidentified bow, and think, "Maybe this will be the one..." then 'click'-

Last night De Seis dropped a yellow bow, I went through my stupid ritual, just like I have about 500 times before. Once the bow was identified I kind of freaked out :eek:




:D
:D




I'm socketing and upping it tonight. I'm hunting for a tasty jewel. I'll repost once my work is done.

I've crafted some sweet stuff and made some very nice runewords, but this is the nicest rare I've gotten a hold of. :clap:

That is a nice bow. Too bad it doesn't have + skills on it. But I always pick up every rare and ID it. I never let a rare sit there.

I am going to look thru my rare bows and post a few too. We should all post our rare bows that are nice and compare them in this thread.

Edit: I have 108 rare bows (not including xbows) in my single player stac and none of them do that kind f damage. I will look on Bnet later. That IS a nice bow!

Be careful what you request here... Joke or not, just don't do it.
Ok, thanks for the advice. I'm a little new to these forums, and I assumed most people can take a joke. ;) *edit: I don't even play east :p

i like it alot....i have a couple sweet ias/ed jewels left if you feel like splurging....a self found 40/15 and a 37/15
not that you are going to trade this but i wonder what it would go for if put up for auction....i would guess an ist or two but there are some players(me) who who likely pay alot more to get this nice rare

ya ya i know this isn't the east trade forum or the trade value forum

style points using that crusader on a strafer would be huge...and the damage numbers are certainly respectable....concrats

1)Take a screenshot. (If you don't know how, look at your keyboard setup under the options menu. There should be a key assigned to Print Scrren or Screenshot.)

2) The Screenshot will be saved to your Diabloii files folder.

3) You now have a jpg. that you can upload to an image hosting site. Such as Imageshack. Just google them, it's free.

4) Then you can link to your hosted image in your posts.

Found these the other night too:



I've had a pretty good week, as far as finding items goes.

I always find such gloves that are ethereal, with useful mods, and no freaking repair! anyway, those were nice, bad luck they have no stats though. Could be replaced by crafted ones, but nice for being rares indeed

That is very similar to one of my nice rare bows.

I'd post a screenshot, but imageshack doesn't seem to be working.

Glyph Branch
Matriarchal Bow
73-215 damage (on a lv86 or 87)
"Shael"
lv48 requirement
5% CtC lv1 Amplify Damage on striking

socketed [1]

Bought the bow on USWest ladder BEFORE Faith was revealed for only a Pul. I'm sure I could've gotten a better price if Faith was out already.

Was a fun bow until I made my Faith, and now it sits in my stash.

I am jealous. Those are some nice bows. I looked through my bow mules (what there are of them anymore) on Bnet East and nothing compares.

I'm auctioning this bow off in the USEAST Trade channel if any 'zons are interested go HERE.

Normally I wouldn't advertise like this, but when this thread was originally posted a while back, I had a few PM's about trading the bow off. Of course I didn't save any of them. Anyway just a heads up: I want to get the most out of my bow and I want the guys who were interested in it to get a chance at it.

*Dear Dac, if this is uncool, just close the thread or let me know, I'm sure you will.*

well yes this isn't a trade forum but there are several players here who rarely visit the trade forum...a bow like that doesn't come around too often....too bad i have used/traded all of my high runes or i would be all over it....the bow is one that you could plan a very nice build around
i personally don't see a problem with your posting the link i hope it goes to a zon who will appreciate a very nic rare

OK, cool. I was hoping I wasn't being a jerk. Looks like it's going to go for 3 ist to Marion anyway. We PM'd back and forth and reached this price. I told him I would close at 9:00 pm. CST
