    XBows, or should i call them Buriza and to some extend demon machine (for enchantress) ?

    they are utterly underpowered, theres no reason to ever use xbows if you have a bow, even demon machine can be replaced by Koku Shakaku (and even wearable earlier)

    and buriza is apart from some wierdo wolfs (it works) just a worse WF, albeit cheaper.

    what would be your suggestion to buff xbows in a way that they get their niche?

    my idea would be, that no matter what skill you use with them (except meleecombat in wearform) that they get a 1 tile radius splash, so that they hit small creatures 3 times more (one on maintarget and the surrounding two)

    that would even out the smaller range and the horrible reqs (150 str for hellrack??? )

    maybe add a runeword like Brand, i mean a RW thats maingoal is funbuilds, probably one which states "increases xbowsplash by 2" or something and some meaningful damage

    what you think?
