    ...with a heavy sigh, GG joins the item twinking club.

    My amazon made me do it! I can't resist an athletic blonde :xrollseye

    My necro pulled this in NM.

    Blood Bolt
    Long Battle Bow
    Two-Hand Damage: 3 to 25
    Required Dexterity: 40
    Required Strength: 32
    Required Level: 26
    Bow Class - Slow Attack Speed
    Item Version: 1.10 Expansion
    Item Level: 60
    Fingerprint: 0x1a14ddbb
    +31% Enhanced Damage
    +26 to Attack Rating
    +2 to Maximum Damage
    Adds 36-79 fire damage
    Requirements -20%
    5% Chance to cast Level 1 Amplify Damage on striking

    The new 1.10 rares are GOOD. This is every bit as good as a unique or imbued bow, with way lower reqs. This will carry my newbie strafezon through Normal, at least until I run into Lister and his FI friends.

    Open to suggestions, sockets, hearty laughs, whatever. I'm thinking Nef, knockback + strafe = goodness.

    And the funny thing is that rares can get even better modifiers than those now. I recently found an Amazon pike (spear? can't remeber) with around 300% Enhanced Damage. And even better, if you find a Normal Rare item with good modifiers, like a Long Sword or something like that, you can use the new Cube recipies to transform it into the Elite version! :D

    No offense intended but I wouldn't advise using your socket quest on this rare... ;)

    Well, for a start imbued items ARE rares, so it's not too surprising this bow would match them!

    Secondly, how is your bow better than, say, this one?

    Skystrike
    Edge Bow
    Two-Hand Damage: 16 to 50
    Required Dexterity: 43
    Required Strength: 25
    Required Level: 28
    Bow Class - Very Fast Attack Speed
    Item Version: 1.10 Expansion
    Item Level: 80
    Fingerprint: 0x347c7822
    +10 to Energy
    +167% Enhanced Damage
    +100 to Attack Rating
    Adds 1-250 lightning damage
    +1 to Amazon Skill Levels
    30% Increased Attack Speed
    2% Chance to cast Level 6 Meteor on striking

    Near enough identical requirements, but I'm sure you'll agree the unique wins hands down...

    I know there are better uniques, I was just happy to see how nice the new rares are in 1.10. I'm not used to seeing such sexy mods on a low level weapon.

    Dang it, this is just too much. All this twinking is making me crazy. I play all my characters straight up. I don't twink. Simple as that.

    Course, I'd probably change my tune if I actually HAD anything that was worth passing between players. :p

    GG, whatever you do, don't worry. Just enjoy the game and kick a**.

    Cheers :drink:
